Hi, I' m Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I' m reviewing your question now, and I will be post back with your reply ASAP

1- the hot trans light came on , there is a temp sensor on the transmission , it is either reading correctly and your trans fluid is hot or it is malfunctioning and reading incorrectly

and putting truck in limp mode

2- But lets focus now why no start

3- has battery been checked for 12 Volts at the moment the key is turned from on to start , what you have on battery ?

4- have you checked the cable from the battery to the starter ?

5- what are you getting on starter when you try to start key in start position, have one person hold key and another person with a test light on the starter ?

6- starter relay been checked ?

please let me know

Thank You

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 3 months ago.

if the above i mentioned is all good then

i would take the steering cover off and look at my ignition switch wiring for evidence of burned spot or a bad switch itself .

if you test the starter at time of failure see if that switch is sending power to starter ?
