I would try a new Ignition switch and ask the parts person about having a main power Relay for your model. Its also possible you have a dead short in your Starter. Take one side of the jumper cable and bypass the Starter Solenoid and see if the starter will crank.
Make sure you are out of gear on a Stickshift when you try this. You can start the truck by putting the Key on Run position and then jump the Starter Relay another way by disconnecting the small Tickler wires and putting 12 volts to the Tickler terminal. This way you check out the Relay.
If it cranks, it should start with the Ignition in Run position. Once started you can see what works and what does not work. Until you locate the short, a fusible link might be a good spare part to carry in the glove box.
Take to Autozone or Oreillys for a starter draw test. Sometimes the starter will have a bad place and will not energize to spin the starter.
Another possibility is the Throttle Position Sensor which is located on the airhorn. This balances the fuel and spark systems for the gas pedal. When you start the engine it gives you the base idle and must work with the cold start system.
You need to check and see if when you turn the key to start that you get current at the starter soldnoid. If not check the safty switch and the ignition switch. If you get current check and see if it goes thru to the starter if not replace soldnoid if it does check the starter itself. These are all electrical and can fail at any time without any warning. Good luck.
you need to check for voltage drop in the wires you may have a bad wire bleeding to ground somewere that needs replaced also put a multimeter on the starter and make sure its gettting atleast 11 volts to it anything less and it wont turn hard enough
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.
