Question Won't Start

Hi guys,
I have a 96 Ram 3500, 12v 2nd Gen 5.9L Turbo Cummins.
Plugged in last night went well below 0C... close to -20C, fired it up this morning no problem... ran for about 15 minutes then quit before it was warmed up.
I tried to start it again, it seems to start but quits within 1 second, new fuel filter installed, Howes conditioner used faithfully, then I noticed when I turn the key to "on" position there is no "Wait" or "WIF" light only parking brake and seatbelt lights, also the guages don't "cycle".

I'm guessing computer.. PCM or ECM??? where is it and how do I check it?

Any ideas?

I have had the guages go "dead" while driving in the past for short periods then begin working again...
