Follow battery pos. cable over to the starter solenoid mounted on the firewall, have a helper turn key to START, does this solenoid click? Post results for more info. Also is it an auto. trans. or stick shift? If stick apply park brake and be SURE it is in NETURAL with key OFF before messing around with this solenoid!!! Let us know what you find for more testing advice.
ou never said if the truck turns over If it cranks but wint start check the inertia switch to see if it has been tripped a little more info wouldnt hurt
check small wire at the solenoid on the starter. make sure it's tight. also has solenoid on fire wall. neutral switch on transmission.
