Dead short in wiring or you are connecting the battery the wrong way round. Negative goes to earth and positive goes to starter.

you might have a bad connection or bad wires bad ground the first thing you have to do is see if you are getting 12 volts to the thick red wire on the starter then when someone is turning the key the small red or purple wire should get 12 volt

They all have to sit for a minute because of the glow plugs. Some diesel don't send power to the starter until the glow plugs run for the pre-determined amount of time. There are many things that could be causing this. Fuel filter, clogged injectors, fuel pump going bad or bad connection to fuel pump.

easiest check is to put a voltmeter on the battery posts. Should be 14 volts or over with engine running. If not alternator may have 1 or more bad diodes.

Also, clean all the battery connections, incluidng small wires on poitive post, if present.

I would check a few things:
Load test the battery. If its got any age on it at all, this could be the culprit.
Test the starter.
Check for loose connections at the distributor cap. Make sure the rotor in the cap is seated and that the cap is properly seated.
Check for loose connections on the battery, the starter and make sure you have fuel pressure on the injector rails (key on, detent the shrader valve .. you should get fuel).
