You didn't happen to accidentally but gas in the tank did you. If unsure check and drain fuel from the tank and refill with diesel.If that isn't the problem give the injector pump a couple of taps may be just a sticky component with in the pump also ensure that the throttle body cable moves freely.

My 1981 VW diesel was running and parked. Then it just went off as if I turned it off. Now it seems like there is no power to ignition switch. Lights will not come on and with key off park lights...


check your battery terminals are clean and tight check all connections. charge battery to see if it may not be charging.Check your fuses possibly blown fuses. check power wire from battery to starter is tight clean. check negative from battery to engine make sure it is clean and tight on engine or where ever it may be run to such as chassis.
