I don't know about that particular car, but I know most of the time when a diesel won't start, it is something wrong with the injection system. Make sure you have fuel at the injection pump, and then follow the lines up and make sure that the pressure is getting all the way to the injectors. Beyond that, I really don't know what to tell you. I try to avoid working on diesels as much as possible.

Send it to me so that I can convert it to run on used vegetable oil!

Since it turns over, maybe the fuel pickup screen is clogged.

Not sure if this will help, but found a wiring diagram of the ignition system. Maybe there is a wire that's bad on your buddy's car causing it.
