1985 300D Not Turning Over
I recently purchased a 1985 300D, odometer reading 419,000 (!), and it has been great... until this morning.
When I went out to start the car, I turned the key to the pre-start position and everything came on normally except the glow-plug light. I thought that was strange, but tried to start the engine anyway, and got nothing, not even a solenoid click. I hear a click from the ignition, but I think that's just the action of me turning the key. Attempting to jump-start had no effect.
A little research turned up no mention of a problem like this. The closest thing I could find is that it could be the glow plug relay, but would that prevent the starter from engaging?
EDIT: Heh, I just went out and jiggled the shifter around and it started right up. Guess it had something to do with the NSS.
