Assuming the battery and cables are in good condition, could be defective starter. It seems like the quality of starters and alternators from parts stores have gone down hill lately. If you have a multimeter, you can place the red lead on battery cable at starter and black lead to ground and start truck. If your getting good voltage to starter when cranking, then bad starter.

Why won't ford ranger diesel push start It has manual transmission.?

Because you have to have the clutch depressed to start it. They came factory with a clutch safety switch that will not allow the engine to start unless the clutch pedal is pressed to the floor . NOT. the clutch safety switch only allows the starter to be energized... If the glow plugs will cycle then the truck can be pulled to start. When my starter solenoid was bad I pulled it to start.
