No turnover

Well one afternoon I step into my truck and turn the key waiting for the glow plug light to go out and start. I turn the key and it acts like it's not fully in park. Nothing happens. Not like a dead or weak battery just no turnover. Not sure where to start to troubleshoot. I need the truck experts to guide me here.

Try it in neutral. Look under the steering column and look for some loose bolts on the shifter cable.

When I first tried to start it I seen all of my gauges swing to their max position and back. Never seen that before.

I just tried to start in all gears including neutral and no go. In my younger days I could figure this out. Not sure where to look now.

Slide under the truck with a big hammer. Give the Starter body a few good Wacks and try again.

If not;

Go to the starter solenoid on the pass fenderwell and, with one-side of a pair of jumpercables, try connecting the two large terminals.

If not;

Turn the headlight ON, see if they go dim when trying to turn over.

I pulled the starter and the solenoid is bad. Can't find a replacement so I might as well just replace the whole starter. Yuk.
