    just replaced the batteries and main cables in my diesel K5... it started right up and ran well for about 2 days. then i noticed that my dash lights and radio werent working so i checked my fuses... they were all fine but now when i go to start it, the glow plug light doesnt come on and it wont start... the starter just keeps running. i dont know too much about diesels so any input would be great. thanks in advance guys.

    check the fusable links, they are the wires that run from the main batt. block out to the fuse box and acc.. Color I think its usualy a blue wire that turns red and range between 8-14 guage in thicknes. time to get out the test light and volt meter!! I hate electrical problems!!:doah:
