truck won't start

08 6.4 47k miles totally stock minus leveling kit.
i went out this am and the after serious rain last night, got in the truck turned the key on and waited to start it, when the light went off i hit the key and nothing- not 1 sound or noise of the truck trying to start.
i cycled the message center and it said all was ok- the radio and lights all work- both batteries show green-
could it be the starter already or something like a fuse or such?

bad day for this- trailer hooked to truck loaded with stuff i need to have on work site this am and i am an hour away at home with my boss freaking out!

Possible EGT sensor went bad. There is a connector near the passenger side battery you can jump to get it started, if the EGT sensor is the problem.

If you have a Job 1 it could be a problem with the TCM... This happened to me Monday, batteries fine but it wouldnt turn over at all. Good luck though.

Mines early job 1 07 too anda bout 42000 miles on it. Well I called spartan and told them what had happened and thats what they said.. I had to get it towed to a local auto shop and theyre fixing it. Apparently the Job 1 TCMs are pretty flaky and can just give out. If you still have a warranty I would just get ford to deal with it..

Hopefully today ill have my truck back and running
