2000 6spd 7.3 doesnt even crank

Truck was running fine last time i used it (4 weeks ago). Now it wont even crank! what could have happed for just sitting during that time??

baterries were weak so i changed both of them, still no go..

starter is about a year old, kind of early to go out so soon i think.

i also have 6pos chip in the computer..

Had the starter relay die on me yesterday. Try turning the key to run and jumping the relay under the hood, screwdriver across the large posts. Make sure it's out of gear first.

ditto that.. as a norm, i never leave my vehicles in gear unless is on an hill. And when on a hill i also use a stone on one of the wheels as an extra precaution..

u mean on top of the fender well?? or inside (removing wheel well dust cover) ??

chip is secured. I made sure it wouldn't move when i installed along with a velcro attachment to keep it in place.

If all else fails i'll check the chip last, hate to disconnect/reconnect battery terminals on this truck (need to find new nuts).
