No start? please help

I am needing some advice. My daily driver is not starting I replaced all the glow plugs, controller and batteries a few months back. I came out yesterday and it would just crank like it did with bad plugs. So I thought it was the cam sensor and that also didn't fix it. Is it possible that my plugs crapped out on me? I put Autolites in and found out later they aren't the best. Last week we 20 deg it started perfect now at 35 it does nothing. I haven't hooked my scanner to it yet. But I don't have a CEL on. Any help would be great. Thanks.

the problem with autolites is not that they fail too quickly, its that they sometimes seize in the head and break, meaning head removal. and that is a can of worms no one wants to open.
