RE: 300 SDL Help I'M Stranded SOS

Can anyone help me please: I'm in Elko, NV and have a 1986 300 SDL. I pulled in last night and it snowed into the night. Woke up this morning at 6 AM and it was 23 degrees. Driver door lock frozen; opened the passenger door and the factory alarm and lights went on. I had to disconnect the battery. I may have tried too many times to start engine after connecting the battery.

Around 10 AM the glow plug light never came on and the engine does not seem to be getting diesel.

1) Am I supposed to reset the radio because of the alarm system?
2) Can anyone trouble shoot the diesel not getting in?Please call Lamar at (775) 738-8111.
Thank you very much. HELP
