Unhappy 84 mercedes 300D wont start but has power!!

I have a 1984 300D turbo diesel that has power to everything (radio, glow plugs, etc) but will not start. I turn the key to let the glow plugs heat up and as soon as the light turns off, I go to start it and nothing! I don't what it could be and all of the fuses are good still. I drove the car yesterday and it ran perfect, as always. Then today this happens. Any Ideas?

The fact that bulbs light up is meaningless as to whether the battery has the capacity to turn the starter motor.

There is, of course, a neutral safety switch.

Modern batteries fail without warning, this has happened to me on other cars. Have yours load tested and we can take it from there.
