Used a test light at starter, on small wire check for voltage while some one turn key to start.if you do have voltage there starter bad . Replace it. If you need to move truck tap starter with hammar while some one turn key to start.Remember you'll still need to replace starter.
Put front end on jack stands. DO NOT WORK UNDER CAR WITH ONLY JACK HOLDING IT UP! Your life is worth more than a 20 buck pair of jack stands. Disconnect battery, negative (black) lead first, then positive (red) lead. From under car, locate starter motor. Carefully disconnect electrical cables from built-in solenoid and motor. Remove mounting bolts. Pay attention if lengths are different. Put'em back where they came from. Rock starter back and forth to break it loose. Reverse procedure for installing new starter. BTW - don't waste your money on a rebuilt unless you enjoy changing them every 12 to 18 months. Make sure you return the old starter for your core allowance refund.
you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.
