No start/No crank

Hi all, hope somebody can give me some help here. Truck is an 04 F-350. Yesterday morning, truck started fine and I drove it to work. Went to grab lunch yesterday and I turned the key to "on", everything acts normal, but the starter won't even as much as click. I hitched a ride home last night and came back with a hammer today thinking I could just tap on the starter and it would start, but no luck.

Batteries are good, but some corrosion on passenger side battery terminal. Does the 6.0 have a starter relay that could be bad?

I'm just trying to get it home so I can diagnose/work on it there while not in work clothes. Any ideas are much appreciated!

Sorry... Its an automatic transmission.

Some more info that might help that I didn't post because I was in a hurry to leave work.

I drove it this past weekend, and I recall that it hesitated when I turned the key to start it. I didn't think anything of it at the time (I thought I didn't turn the key far enough to engage the starter?). Other than this, the truck has been rock solid.

There is a single, heavy gauge yellow with light blue coloured striped wire in the engine compartment on the passenger side, adjacent to the vacuum pump. On this single wire, is a black squeeze and pull type connection. Squeeze and pull it apart. With the ignition key in the RUN position, jump the male half of the two to the passenger side battery positive post. Does the starter crank, and the engine start up when you do this?

NYC F-350 -- Thats what I was originally thinking, but got worried when I couldn't get it started while hitting the solenoid with a hammer.

m-chan68 -- I'm at home now and my truck is still at work. I'll report back tomorrow when I get a chance to try.

Thanks for the fast replies guys. I appreciate it.
