Hi
It could be your neutral safety switch. It could be the starter relay which is located in the fuse panel box. It could be the smaller wire going to the starter could be loose or corroded.

Is the motor locked up??? If the starter is engaging the flywheel (Loud "click" when key is turned) and the engine is not cranking, the engine may be locked up. Try to turn the engine by hand ny placing a socket on the crankshaft pulley bolt and using a ratchet to try to turn the pully in a clockwise direction. If it does not turn, try taking all the spark plugs out and try it again. If it turns with the spark plugs out, look for antifreeze coming out of the spark plug holes when you turn it....if anyifreeze comes out, your problem is caused by a a blown head gasket. Also pull the oil dipstick out of the tube and look at the condition of the oil. If it looks like a chocolate milkshake, your engine has probably locked up due to antifreeze getting into the oil from a blown intake manifold gasket.

There is a fuse from the ignition switch. There is also a fusible link. Below is a wiring diagram that you can look at and it has the wire colors as well. This I hope will help you narrow down your power loss to the solenoid. If you need anymore wiring diagrams for your vehicle I have them all and you are free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with what you need. No cost, Being nice cause it's Sunday....LOL Anyway, I hope this helps you and good luck. Here's your diagram

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

Wont start or turn over just replaced the stater and still nothing


Does your key switch work good? Do the warning lights and gauges on the dash all turn on with key in on? That verifies the ignition switch has power. If not, check fuse #9 in the Power Distribution Center (under the hood). It is a 30 amp fuse, providing power to the switch.
Are the battery cables clean and tightly connected at the battery and starter and the battery ground connection?
There is an Engine Starter Motor relay in the Power Distribution Center, the only thing between the ignition switch and the starter. With key in start, power is sent from the switch to this relay, and if relay is activated by the PCM (engine computer), then power goes on to the starter solenoid on the starter, and starter should then operate and crank the engine. If you have a voltmeter, you could do some tests for power at the terminals the relay plugs into. There are only 4 terminals. Post back with comments, or if you need help with testing those terminals.

if you have battery power on the large terminal at the starter and the same on the smaller wire when someone Is turning the key to start and the starter has a good ground then the starter is bad drawing too much amperage causing the clicking sound.

Won't crank won't start


There are two starter relays in this vehicle. One is in the fuse box, the other right on the starter. Pull the fuse box starter relay. Check for battery voltage on two of the cavities in the socket when you turn the key to the START position. If you see that, then check for ground on one of the other two cavities. If you see all those readings, try swapping the starter relay with another one of the same size and type.

Change the actual ignition switch? Test light at starter signal wire while someone turns key to see if you have power at signal wire. Check all your grounds after that. Still nothing take steering column apart and change ignition switch .

Engine will not turn over


engine will not turn over.first check battery volts, should be 12.6 volts. if not battery is weak or dead make sure battery cables tight and clean them if you see a lot of corrossion use baking soda and water neutralize corrossion remove battery cables clean them with wire brush also clean battery post terminal with wire brush also wear safety glasses protect your eyes now.try charging and jump start vechicle see if battery good or starter at fault bench test starter and starter solenoid if starter dont work problem in the starter.if starter good.you have blown starter fuse bad starter relay if dash lights dont light up when you turn on the ignition switch and battery has 12.6 volts.check ignition fuse if fuse is good dash still dont light up,you could have faulty ignition switch.if all is good you could have bad clutch safety switch for manual transmission or faulty neutral switch for automatic transmission.if you have the late model cars from 1996 to 2012 has the theft security system which will cause car not to start and try turning engine over with a large wrench to make sure engine not locked up.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Did you check your starter solenoid? It may be that. You need to check your ignition fuse as well. Make sure the battery has a full charge and is holding a proper charge. If the starter isn't getting the full current, it may not work right. You need to make sure that you clean your terminals and post with a wire brush. Inspect all you wires from the battery to the starter. If you have to, test the wires for current with a voltage meter.

have someone turn key and you grab the battery cables and twist/ wiggle them and also pull upward on positive cable going to starter to see if it makes a better contact to start truck. I dont know who or how the starter got tested but normally if the starter just clicks it is either not enough power going to starter motor, or the starter selonoid is bad, or the starter motor is bad. so double check all cables and cable ends,and all cable contacting points. check battery for tight posts and connections.

Will not start


be sure to clean the battery terminals and make sure that the battery is tested to be holding a good charge.If the voltage from the battery is the slightest bit weak then the fuel and or ignition relays will release while the starter moter takes the most amperage to turn the engine over,causing a no start condition.
