Glow Plug light not working / car is not turning over. Please help.

Hey all,
I have a 1978 Mercedes 300D and i am having a problem turning over my car this afternoon. Last night i notice while driving that the glow plug light was flickering while i was driving. I drove it home, parked it. And now I got into my car this afternoon to drive and the glow plug light does not even turn on. So i figured it might be just the light that is not working. But i turn the key further and it sounds like the engine wants to turn but maybe the plugs aren't warming up? Please help. I live in Riverside, CA.

thanks,

Andy
