My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

You are hearing the relay in the truck, correct? Have you tested the relay on the passenger firewall, near the battery? Have someone turn the ky for you and see if you have a ignition signal going to the small wire on that relay. They commonly go out and will casue the condition you have.

If it is good, then you know you are getting a signal from the ignition switch to it. Then next you check the large wires and see that it is activating to send power to the starter solenoid. If not, replace that relay. If so, then there is an issue between it and the starter solenoid.

This is the fastest way to chase down a start problem like you are having.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
