You are going to need to test and verify the glow plugs are in good working order.

It sounds to me like you have 1 or more bad glow plugs which is common to not only cause this condition but to not produce any codes as well.

To test take the rail off of them and get a test light, hook it to the pos side of the battery and touch the tip of each glowplug. if it lights up the glowplug is bad. If they all show good than you have a bad glow plug controller.
