Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The interlock / Inhibitor relay are common to fail on these trucks. Did you try changing this relay?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I tested this relay and it responds correctly to voltage input.... 1 set of contacts open and 1 set closes.
I suspect the starter switch on the column only makes temporary contact as i have to bump it hard to get it to engage for the second that it does work. Can you tell me which wires on the output side of the starter switch would send voltage out towards the starter?( colors?)
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

There is 1 gray plug going to the starter. That is the voltage sent from the ignition switch. If you don't have voltage there, then you may want to check power out of the ignition switch to see if that is your issue. Especially if you have to bump it.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. That is how I get credit for my work. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.

Thanks Jay!
