radio change, car won't start !!!!

hi I ave a vw golf tdi 2002 I change the original radio for a pioneer DEH-3200UB I look at my ALL DATA wiring diagrams for my speaker and B+ and ground everything is plug corectly and the radio work very well. the thing is now my car wont start... always star very weel before installing the radio
all fuse are ok
on my radio I have an anti-thief and Data Link Connector and my B+ for control input for SAFE display/anti-thief
no fuel pump in the tank so I don't have a relay for this ...
engine crank but doesn't start I crak the injector fuel line and diesel come out
my glow plug light turn off after the heating cycle

any idea... ??? the dealer told me enven if the radio is out of the car it should start that mean thos anti-thief wire doesn't matter about my trouble

and sorry for my english I'm french :P

Did you use a harness adapter or hardwire it? It has something to do with the k wire. Try putting it back to stock and see what happens. I've never had an issue putting radios in when using nice harness adapters. Just plug and play.
