The way it sounds like you burned up the starter, or the starter silonoid. take starter out and have it check. if it does work correctly then check the silonoid. I have had the same problem a couple of times. During winter make shure your batteries are fully charge, and turn the ignition on and wait for the glow plugs to heat up.

I have a 95 rodeo Turbo diesel the problem is the motor will turn over but won't start I can push start it and when it's hot it starts fine I have no glow plug light on dash can u help

Battery, starter. Diesels have to turn over fairly fast to get started. If the battery is low on amps or the starter is dragging could be the problem. I would also look at fixing the glow plugs if they aren't working. Just because the light doesn't come on, doesn't mean they aren't working.

i would have the starter tested you may be drawing to much amperage at the starter frying the fuses and relay, have a starter draw test to see how much of a draw it pulls when starting the truck.

2000 3.2L diesel navara start problem

to check if you can try hitting the starter, with a hammer or bar. if it starts, it's the starter for sure. you can also jump the posts on the starter, the small one to the big one, if it starts and the starter sounds normal you will have to check the small wire/ignition wire and switch. if *** justs clicks or does nothing it's the starter. let me know

Starter was dragging, then it stopped altogether,.. not even a click or the dimming of the lights... what gives? 04 dodge ram 3500 diesel

Sounds like short in starter. While you try and start it have someone tap the starter with a small hammer.
