The intake heater grid on my 92 W350 has decided to quit working, the dash light cycles, but nothing happening under the hood.

All the connections are clean & tight, I've no clue where to go next.

Any help is appreciated.

First check continuity of the grid...don't know what the resistance should be but open is bad...
have you checked for power to the grid?
Is the Relay clunking(mine always made a pretty loud actuation noise) - if not check for power to the relay. Test for a signal to the switching side of the relay (low amperage side)

I did check the grid for continuity, all good there.

Will look at the codes tonight.

Really check the ground wire at the grid (the one under the bolt). They will go crusty . Otherwise, I'd suspect the solenoids on the left fenderwell.
