Starter problem

Well, i have been having problems getting my 03 to start. It seems to start when it wants to but not when i want it to. When i first go out to start it the injectors buzz and everything turns on while the glow plugs warm up, when i hit the key nothing happens, no clicking, no cranking, nothing. All the gauges go down and everything shuts off (as it should) until i let off the key. so i was jump starting it and it would fire right up. I replaced both batteries and still have the same problem. any suggestions???

It sounds like a bad starter. When it fails to turn over you need to know if you are getting a signal to the starter relay/solenoid. If you are then it is a starter.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.
