1985 300TD Wagon

Hi all. I am a new owner of a used MB wagon. I joined so that I can learn more about maintenance and upkeep of my car. I already have some questions, so I look forward to hearing from you all.

Okay, so my first question is this. It is very cold here in Atlanta c 20deg. I went to start the engine, following the cold weather instructions (turn key to position 2, depress accelerator, then turn ignition fully) but it would not turn over. After two tries, the glow plug light wont come on. I let it rest 3 hours and went to try again but the light still wont come on. I was told I can use the plug under the hood (in the grill) to help, but I dont know the procedure. Please advise/explain to a novice. Thx!
