Question about Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD
I would start by testing your relays. there are many of them glo plug, primary diesel pump, secondary pump, starter relay, just to name a few. Also check the fuel selinoid. It sounds like something that lets you start but once you warm up it shuts down. your going to have to trouble shoot it hot. Sorry with out codes or more info there is not much I can give besides this. Best of luck.

What climate are you located in? Do you wait to start anyway? The fact that the wait to start light does not come on leads me to believe that your glo-plugs are not heating up. Your vehicle, as you may know has no spark. Ignition is obtained by superheated diesel fuel being highly compressed. If the fuel is not heated, the vehicle will not fire. Each cylinder has a glo-plug and a swirl chamber, that the glo-plug pre-heats the fuel in before being compressed to aid in combustion in a cold engine start situation. Once started, the diesel engine heats very quickly and therefore does not need the glo-plug any longer to fire. Check your glo-plugs...if they are indeed heating, then you need to make sure you are getting fuel to the cylinder. If these 2 things are happening and you still have no start, then you likely have a compression issue, but I can't see that happening on all cylinders at once...Good Luck. I hope this is very helpful!
