Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
Is the security light on solid when you turn the key to the ON position?
Let me know, thanks Jay!
the light goes off
Ok that is good, that means it's not the key
Does the alarm go off? or does it just crank and doesn't start?
Do you have remote start on this truck or something?
It just does not crank and doesn't start
Does all the lights come on the dash when the key is turned ON? Did you try to see if the truck will Start in Neutral?
say all the lights come on the dash when the key is on
Did you try to see if the truck will start in neutral
Stick or automatic?
So the engine doesn't turn over, it does nothing. Correct?
Is this 4x4?
yes it is 4x4
There is a possibility the starter may be the problem.
If the alarm was the problem, it would be going off.
Unless you know you have some kind of after market alarm in the truck. That also can interrupt the starter.
this is the second time it has had the problem not the starter
How do you know it's not the starter?
Did you check to see if the starter is getting a signal from the ignition switch?
100% sure its not the starter but last time it was towed in and it started working
Well here is two ways to verify if it's the starter.
First is have someone hold the key in the crank position and tap the starter with a hammer.
If the starter engages, then you know it's a starter issue.
The other is to unplug the signal wire at the starter and probe it with a test light. Then turn the key to the crank position and if the test light lights up, then you also know it's a starter issue. If it doesn't, then you will need to look back in the harness to see why it's not getting power.
Can you read a wiring diagram?
Either way, since the starter is not engaging, you need to see if it's getting power. That will tell you which way you need to look to resolve your problem.
that will take some time how do I get back with you? yes i can
This is a 3.3
ok, just wanted to be sure.
