My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
If the fuel pump and glow plugs are working, but just not the starter, there are 4 possibilities:
1. Start relay is bad
2. Start solenoid/starter are bad
3. Wiring is damaged
4. Control board is bad.
This issue is most often a blown fuse, or a bad start relay.
