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.

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.

Explorer (93 xlt)wont start

Alternator just charges your battery and wont have any direct link to a starter problem. It is very important that starter wires be very snug when replacing the starter. especially the big wires. However it is the little wire that activates the main relay. I don't remember if this car has a remote solenoid or not.
If it has a remote solenoid then the main positive wire from the battery will go to the solenoid mounted on the fire wall or fender and then one big wire will go down to the starter. The start solenoid will have the battery wires hooked to it but also a little wire from the ignition switch. If you dont hear a click then either the ignition switch is bad or the solenoid is bad. Or perhaps the contact from the ignition at the solenoid is bad.

2001 f150 stalled while driving down the road..when I try to start it all I get is a click..i replaced the starter and it didn't work? Maybe the alternator? Help? Battery is fine just fyi

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.
