Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

DIESELS DO NOT START FOR ONLY 3 REASONS.. 1. not getting fuel. 2. Glow plugs not working.. 3 major engine damage
1. air in system.. like you ran out of fuel, Fuel filter clogged, lift pump not working, no fuel in tank, Bad fuel. .. 2. glow plugs..check the wire at the glow plug to see if it has power. If it does not check the relay and fuse. glow plugs usually do not all go bad at one time. 3. major engine damage.. you would normally notice this by the noise the engine makes or it would not turn over..
Many things to check. Wonder if this work was done to alleviate problem or problem was from doing the work.
Putting gas fumes in a 21:1 compression cylinder is sure way to ruin engine.
2 possible problems are losing your diesel fuel draw from an air leak in the fuel lines and an inoperative glow plug timer.
When you change a fuel filter you lose the vacuum lock that is in the fuel lines. Some mechanics add fuel to the new filter to remove some of the air and promote fuel draw. The O rings on the injector lines are a special type which resists petroleum products. Using cheap O rings will cause problems.
Glow plug timer-there is a power Relay to the timer and the timer itself is a type of Relay. You should hear clicking noise and lights should dim as timer provides power to the glow plugs.
Other things to check would be the Vacuum pump as Diesels work differently than gas engines and require a pump to supply Vacuum. Covering the intake suggests engine needs a Vacuum draw.
Weak fuel pump. Too weak to pressurize or draw fuel. Can be measured with pressure gauges.
Really bad rings could also cause symptoms.
Would be interested knowing what proved to be wrong.
If you can't pull the codes from the pcm it has either died or lost it's ground assuming it has power. I would try to get a wiring diagram and check both the power and the ground for the computer itself, because it is what turns on the pump and the wait to start light.
Firstly fit a manual overide to the heater plugs .relay -push button type switch -wire -connectors ,run a wire direct from battery to relay ,other side to heater plug relay output so it feeds all the heaters ,push button inside cab with a 12v feed from ignition switch running to relay then other side of relay to earth ,leave vehicle on charge often on trickle charge where possible ,also on a full tank of diesel put in a litre of petrol to stop diesel waxing up ,nice old rug or blanket over engine and it will first time every time ,only use the petrol when weather below minus 5c though ,great vehicles these peugeots but i do like my ford transit
Have you checked for power on the fuel shut-off solenoid on the injection pump? There are two wires to the pump. One is the fuel shut-off the other is the cold advance. Both should be hot with the key on when the engine is cold. Do you hear the glow plug relay clicking when you turn the key on?
most likely the relay. its located to the left of the fuel filter( looking at the motor from the front). my experience is that they only last about 50,000 miles. the part costs about $20 at an navistar dealer. remove the cowl over the filter, disconnect the batteries(so you don't short the new relay out if you cross the polarity with a wrench) ,remove the four wires from the ceramic relay, un-fasten the relay from the base. reverse the process with the new relay. CAUTION; do not over-tighten the nuts on the wire studs, you could crack the ceramic relay.(iv'e done it) . hope this helps
glow plug wire harness under valve covers often deteriorates causing no glow plug heating. The connectors and wire terminals are available from Ford as a kit or individually. Do not replace the harness. $600!
Still need the fuse panel circuit? Look in owner manual.
glow plugs use a relay too.
