When i turn the key I hear a "click" from the ignition, but it doesnt turn the starter. The truck has a new starter, and at one point had a alarm system. When we bought the truck the previous owners removed parts of the alarm leaving behind a mess of wires, but the truck still ran. Now when i go out and try to start the truck, all i hear is the formentioned click. I might also point out that the headlights work, but electronics connected to the iginition do not (radio, blinkers, door alarm). thanks for your help

Then the problem is likely the ignition switch, or the neutral safety switch. Try jamming it into park a couple of times to see if it helps. If it does, you will need to change the neutral safety. If it doesnt, probably going to need an ignition switch. Those trucks, jimmys, and blazers are famous for ignition switch problems.
The starter is a bit tricky to get out on the 2.8. It makes it a lot easier to get the starter off when you take the exhaust loose from the head. But be careful. The bolts have a tenancy to break off inside the head. The ignition switch would be something to look at if the starter is not clicking or making any noise. But an OE starter is not necessary. One from Autozone or any parts store is fine.
could be the ignition switch or the connection wiring. could be the starter or solenoid. if you wanna check your starter, have someone turn the key to try and start it as your underneath and tap/hit the starter with a hammer or a block of wood. of that makes it start then yeah its the starter.
Check your ignition switch (located on the steering column under the dash) If this is working, you will hear an electronic switch click when you turn the key on - if you do hear it then replace your starter
The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.
Before changing the actuator check the vacuum lines at the vacuum switch on the left side of the transer case if they are wet with transmission fluid the the switch is bad and that will prevent 4wd from engaging.
Check the starter solenoid on the passenger side near the battery under the hood, the small terminal is the lead from the ignition switch, when the key is held in the start position there should be 12 volts at that terminal.. the wire to that terminal just pushes on.
Do you hear any clicks when you turn the key to start. If you do, that is the starter solenoid trying to connect the starter to the battery in order to crank the engine.This is a strong indication that the starter is bad No clicks means the starter solenoid is A.) not getting any voltage from the ignition switch or B.) bad. If it were my car I would remove the starter and solenoid (they are connected together) and take it to an Auto Zone type store and have them check it out for you. They have the equipment to do that. Be sure to remove the ground lead (the black one) from the battery before you remove the starter.
Th remove the starter disconnect the 2 wires going to the lugs on the starter and there are usually 2 bolto holding the starter top the engine. Remove the bottom one first and then the top one, It helps if you have someone to hold the starter while you remove the top bolt. The started is kind of heavy
