Question about 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Runs fine. Shut it aff. Try to restart, gauges all peg, starter clicks then all goes dead. Try to start again, nothing happens. no click, no gauges, nothing. Let it sit and try again, same pegged gauges and starter click. Lamp under hood flashes,something under dash clicking. I removed and reconnected both battery cables and it started and ran fine. This happend once before a few years ago. A real head scratcher!
Check that the battery cable ends (where the wire goes into the clamp) are clean with no corrosion, and that the other end of those cables are securely connected - especially where the ground cable connects. Also check any ground strap that connects the engine with the frame or body.

SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank
the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

Nissan: Is the clicking sound loud like a solenoid or mild like a relay? Use a test light to see if your getting juice to the solenoid. Also might want to check for juice in and out of the clutch switch while your at it.
Truck: Check for juice at the starter. If the new solenoid is clicking, it's probably working, so the next thing to check is for juice at the starter. If yes, then disconnect the battery and drop the starter and have it tested. If it's not the starter, pull the spark plugs out and try turning the engine by hand with a braker bar and socket on the harmonic balancer. Is there any reason to suspect that the enging might be siezed up?

disconnect the sensor, is the guage still pegged hot? if so trace the wire you unplugged and see where it is getting ground from, when you remove the ground the guage should return to cold, then hook it up and test it, let me know if this helps
