When you replaced the injectors did you drain the hpop rails on the cylinder heads. If not your engine is hydrolocked with oil. remove valve covers, remove glowplugs, place valve covers back on with a couple bolts, then attempt to crank over. I bet it will crank over.

If you replaced injectors on both sides of the engine then you need to do both sides at the same time. All it takes is one cylinder to be locked up. Then it will not crank over at all.

Is the engine turning over yes or no? You say it does not crank over. To me that says when you turn the key it does not crank. Is the starter making any noises at all. If not how good are your batteries? Are they charged up?
