Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

2001 ford f150 wont start

Hello; what happens when you turn the ignition key to the start position? Are you getting a clicking sound? If so, it is most likely the starter solenoid that has gone on the fritz. The starter solenoid is located on the passenger side fender well inside the engine compartment. Sometimes, lightly tapping the solenoid with the handle end of a screwdriver will jostle it to work- DO NOT HIT IT'll break the housing. Try jumping out the solenoid with the long shaft of the screw driver by turning the ignition key to the run position (where all the dash lights turn on), then jump out the solenoid; if the engine starts to turn over, you've isolated the problem. Replace the solenoid with a genuine Ford replacement part; don't use third party ones that can be purchased cheaply at an auto parts store. They don't last very long since they CANNOT handle the high current flowing to the starter, Let me know how you made out with your repair project; best wishes. BTW, if it is helpful, snap a photo of the solenoid before removing any terminals from it in case you forgot which wire goes where.

Why won't my truck start?

Are you pulling the arm all the way back up. If not, the ignition is still on and you could be draining the battery. also check the alternator, they can short out on the inside. The solenoid is on the right fender well, do you have the single wire on the correct post

When you turn your key nothing happens? Is your truck stick or automatic? Have you tried to start with screw drive on starter solenoid under hood on passenger fender?

I have a 1989 Ford f150 XLT Lariat. I drove her up to the store and she was only off for about 2 minute when I tried cranking it. It gave a few clicks, then just one loud one and quit. And ever since then...

Have you checked the battery? That's what it sounds like to me. Classic symptoms. You battery has enough juice for the accessories but a LOT is required to crank the engine. If your battery is weak it won't start. Try jumping it, see if it starts. If so, you need a new battery.

1986 F150 302 FI. Battery fully charged starter wont engage. solenoid seems to click.

Will it turn over while being jumped? Most likely the starter is going out.

Try replacing the starter solenoid, it's usually mounted on the inner fender well passenger side or by the battery, can't miss it, the positive battery cable is connected to it.

My truck will not start,there is no lights,radio or nothing woorking.I have replaced,starter,alternator,new battery and key swith.

Check to see if there is power at the starter with a test light. There probably isn't. So your problem is the fusible linkin your positive battery cable.
