First do the obvious, check all the fuses. This means the oneson the left side ofthe dash and the ones on top of the battery. If they are all good then go to the following steps. Two things you can check are the glow plugs and thefuel delivery system. Put a VTM on one of the plugs and turn the ignition on to see if there is current to light the plugs for start. Do this for each plug. If they have current then disconnect each one and check for continunity. You should get a solid ground for each one. If they check out go to the fuel delivery system.First clean the area around the number one fuel injector line fitting. Then lossen the fitting one half turn. Put a towel around the fitting to catch the fuel and crank the engine. If a steady stream of fuel is noted the delivery system is working.Hope this will help you get started on finding the problem.

That is correct, there is no in tank pump as does the gas version. Sounds like you may have an air leak in the line off the tank. Use a hand held vacuum pump on the return line and see if it draws bubbles. If so check all the fitting on the supply side from the tank to the injector pump. The fuel tank is under the rear seat.

Glad to hear it was the shutoff door. This helps to relieve the stress of engine shutdown. At least it was a simple fix.
