Question Truck wont crank

I started up my truck today and then moved it into that garage to fix some stuff, it started up fine. Then I tryed to move it out of the garage and it will not start. It wont even crank. All I get is a loud click noise. All the lights work and the wait to start also works. please help. All fuses were check under the hood and look fine. Brand new starter less then a year ago.

How does the fuel bowl fill if engine isn't turning over?

Tried the CPs, icp, if it is turning over is their any smoke from tail pipe?

If its only clicking you may need a starter

Check ALL battery cable ends for tightness and cleanliness. Have each battery load tested independently. You might want to have the starter bench tested as well. Cheers!

Starter bench testing is a waist of time IMHO, had a buddy have his done, passed with flying colors, swapped in a new one truck started, yours should still be under warranty swap it out

Neutral safety switch possibly.
You need to see if the solenoid (on pass side fender on a SD) is getting fire from the ignition switch.

Automatic or manual transmission? Are you hearing the click when you turn the key to RUN, or when you turn the key to START?

How old are the batteries?

It is a Manual. It happens when I turn the key all the way forward. MY batteries were replaced less then a year ago. I tested the cable running to the starter and i'm pretty sure its good. It looks like there is fluid leaking from where the starter bolts to the trans.
