Check the voltage of the battery with the key off. It should be just about 12 volts, start the engine, wait for a minute or two so the glow plugs will turn off, then check the voltage to the battery/s while reving the engine slightly. It should read above what it read when the engine was off. Normally around 14 volts.

What do you mean "24 hours and have not have not heard from you". It's the other way around, I am waiting on you.
