No Crank After Oil Change

Started it up ran it for 10 minutes of so before oil change to warm up the oil, started and ran fine. Got everything changed put the key in to start it and nothing. WTS light comes on and so does the fuel pump but no power to the starter. I checked the hpop oil level and its good. Tried starting in neutral didnt change anything. Checked all fuses. I can hear the relay click under steering column when I turn the key all the way. Also checked the solenoid on the passenger side firewall and there is no power to the small wire with the key turned all the way. I can start it fine by crossing the posts on the same solenoid but nothing with the key! Anything else to check?? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I don't have the exact problem but similar. Long story short I had installed and switch to the clutch rod as an anti thief device. Where as if it was switched off and someone tried to crank the truck it wouldn't crank. Switched on the truck starts right up. Well after work today I accidently kicked the switch that was hanging down under the dash and ripped it out. So I wired it back stock and if fired right up and drove home. Once home re wired the switch. Tested and worked fine. Then I finished undercoating it s project I started last week and never finished. Went to start truck and nothing. Hear clicking from fuse box when I turn key. Feels like its the third one down ticking. Truck starts right up if I cross starter solenoid though. Idk what the deal is!! Any help anyone!!!

Yeah my problem was the transmission range selector on the side of the transmission, swapped it out and haven't had a problem since! But yours being a 6 speed would probably be different.

re

Clutch switch? Bad starter solenoid? Ignition Switch?

There is a switch where the clutch rod/shaft goes into the firewall, put truck in N & try compressing the switch while trying to start.

Im not sure what part of it compresses. Doesn't seem like there's a spot

look under the dash next to the steering linkage.

Try grabbing it & pulling towards back of truck with a little pressure on it, while in neutral try starting the truck.
