What is the actual problem?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the starter will not engage..
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
So the engine will not turn over?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Right.I even tryed shorting the starter under the truck and the engine turns over but not enough to start.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
It sounds like the battery is low, I would try to jump start the battery or try to charge it to see if that helps.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
the battey is fully charged.Everything comes on when you turn the key.Ecept it will not start and the gas gauge does not show the 10 gallons I put in it.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
Just because the gauges come on does not mean there is enough power to turn the starter, it takes a lot of power for the starter.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
ok I tryed to jump it and still nothing .the batter is only 2 month's old.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
Do you get any click when you try to start? You said it cranks slow when you try to jump the starter? Is that right? This all started when you ran out of gas?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No click.yes it turns over.Yes everthing was fine until it ran out of gas.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
I would start by checking all of the fuses, you may have blown a ignition switch fuse or a start fuse or even a PCM fuse.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I'll try these thing's and then get back with you.
Expert:  Daryl replied 8 years ago.
ok
