300tdi not turning over

Admittedly I'm still very low on the learning curve on this motor/truck. The radiator/oil cooler/intercooler are buttoned back up, and it's time to try and start her. Battery is hooked up and charged showing 12.75v. Lights are lighting, blinkers are blinking, but she won't even think about turning over. Other things in the mix are that it's the old style fuse panel, it doesn't appear any of the fuses should cause this. Also, xfer case is out -- could there be a sensor that was pulled?

What am I missing here?

Thanks,

Tony

Glad you found it. Once again proving that bad grounds are the problem most of the time.

And that it's usually the simple stuff. Man was it good to hear that clatter again . . .
