It is probably the fuel pump. If I remember the number correctly, this fuel system needs about 50 lbs to open a valve.
Until this valve opens, no fuel gets to the fuel nozzels.

hi, i have seen this problem ten years ago twice, but i was dumbfounded by the answer. all details aside, I replaced the ecm, and never had the problem again with both of them. this repair was a recommended repair by the local truck depot in my town, they stated the ecm got hot along with the truck and it lost the injector sensor signal. now, don't take this solution and run with it, i haven't repaired a 6.2 diesel in ten years and i maybe off track completely. but at least maybe you could ask around your town or maybe a large truck facility about this. of course, you should take to a shop to have diagnosed. hope i could help.

A bad fuel pump will not keep the engine from turning over. I would first test your battery and make sure your connections are clean. If that check out I would check your starter and starter relay.

If you are at or near the 100,000 mile mark then your fuel pump may have failed. If you remove the fuel filler cap and listen carefully at the filler neck while someone turns the ignition key to "run" [don't actually crank the engine] you should be able to hear the fuel pump buzz for about a second and a half as the key is turned On. If you don't hear the pump buzz then odds are your pump is dead. Your pump may have actually failed making it appear as though you ran out of fuel. Not to uncommon. Hope this helps and good luck!
