Default 2000 2500 Diesel Stick Won't Crank, Help!

I'm brand new here and want to throw out a question. I have a 2000 Ram 2500 Diesel 6 speed stick with 43K. Push the cluch in to start & get nothing. I get all power accessories to work & no voltage drop when I turn the key to start. I banged on starter & got nothing. Where & how do you check the clutch saftey switch? Can I jump it out? Also I don't hear the lift pump spraying fuel when I turn the key to the on position. Any fuses I should check. Anyone ever had this problem? You thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would check all the fuses first then try to jump the switch. I believe the switch is at the pedal under the dash but not sure you will need to get under and take a look.
Good luck and keep us updated.

Update: Got the truck running. Found a mini 20 amp fuse marked "starter" under the hood in a big black fuse box blown. Replaced it & it fired up. I have no idea why that blew. I'll drive it & see what happens. Thanks for the advice. Got to say this truck has been a problem from brand new day 1. Not like my other truck, a perfect running 1983 Dodge Ram B350 maxi van with 283K miles on the original 318. Now that is a trouble free Ram tough truck. They really don't make them like that anymore.

I just had the same problem and like you i bought new batteries then took off the starter and checked the plunger and contacts and the starter was fine, i then checked the starter relay and also it was good....after i read this i went out and sure enough that little 20 amp was blown.
