I am trying to crank a 300SD without a key to make sure the motor is OK before I remove it to sell. I don't need to drive the car so the steering wheel being locked is of no concern. Does anyone know which wires I can cross to jump start? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Alan

battery POSITIVE

and a plastic junction block on the passenger fender
next to the air cleaner - flip open the cover,
and tap on the wire with the PURPLE tracer stripe/ screw

I got the motor to spin, but too cold to crank I believe. Is there a way to hot wire the glow plug relay in order for it to heat the glow plugs? Thanks
