people will scream at me for suggesting this - the engine needs to spin at a minimum rpm in order for the pcm to allow it to start, so be sure the batteries are up to snuff. first thing is check all your fuses. if good, then check your oil level. if good, check to see if there is fuel in the bowl. if there is, drain it, and crank the engine again - check to see if it filled. if it did, you know your pump works, and you are getting fuel at least that far. you know your engine is getting air - so then its down to high pressure oil, fuel to the injectors, or a sensor of some type.
what "i" would do - is disconnect the power to the glow plug relay and try spraying a small amount of WD40, or starting fluid. some people will act like im telling you to throw a grenade in your motor but its hardly as bad as some people make it out to be. the key is disconnecting the glow plugss. anyway - if the engine turns over - you know its a fuel issue, if not - high pressure oil, or sensor. it could be a few different things but this will narrow it down assuming your pcm and other major electronics are good. you may just need to pump some fuel through the system and purge some air if its been sitting for while and you didnt have an issue before.
