300D won't start--quick help?

Hi all,

This evening the wife and I ran some errands in the 82 300D, the last of which was a quick stop at the grocery store. When we returned to the car, it wouldn't start. The glow cycle (which wasn't really necessary since the car was still hot) went fine, but when I turned the key... no response from the starter. At first I thought it might be the neutral safety switch, but I tried again in Neutral and then Park... still nothing. Tried jumping the battery, but still got no response at all from the starter when turning the key.

Any ideas? I asked the store manager if I could leave the car in the parking lot tonight, but I hate that it's sitting out there.
