Okay, so we got the truck started... it was that the steering wheel was locked. My husband gave it a good yank and voila. Just as a side, this is the worst vehicle we've ever owned. Looks nice but a lemon for sure. Had the computer replaced 6 months ago and thinga are still wonky with it. Should have stuck with Toyota. Thanks for your help though.
