Truck wont start, lights all work, no crank

My truck ran just fine 20 minutes ago.

Went out to hook up a wire on my KC lights and now my truck don't start

I have lights, my fuel pump is making noise, everything is working, but when you go to turn the key to turn the truck on, nothing. It doesn't crank over.

Ive got to get this fixed by tomorrow. Any idea's?

Try putting the truck in neutral and try to start it.

See if the starter solenoid is getting power on the small signal wire when the key is turned to start.

no power to solenoid

2 wires going to starter.


big wire= 12v
small wire= 0v
That mean my starter solenoid bad?



cant i run a jumper cable from the positive side of the battery down to that small terminal and see if it jumps?

No, that means power from your key isnt getting to the solenoid. Most likely the neutral safety switch but that is built into the range sensor on the side of the trans where the shift lever is.

You can try jumping from the big term yo the small term and see if it starts. WARNING!!! this bypasses all safety devices so MAKE SURE the truck is in park/neutral and cant roll!

As soon as you jump it, the engine should turn over. If you have the key to "on", the engine should fire up and run.

tried to jump, starter still did not spin. Truck did not start, I put a jumper in the small wire.

Now what?

You put battery voltage to the small term where the small wire should connect?

I connected a wire from the battery to the starter soleniod to act as a jumper.
I use to do that on a different car of mine

The big wire on the starter has got 12v or so.

the little wire has no volts at all, not even with a jumper cable and will not turn on with jumper cable


Is my starter bad?
