My 2000 ford f350 v10 Won't start with the key, it does have a remote start that works fine. I can hear the ignition relay clicking when I turn the key, but it won't fire. I tried replacing the solonoid on the fender, but it's still doing it.

There isn't a relay for this year. I doubt the ignition switch is OK. I would first pull all the fuse and relays you can find(look and see if good). Then check fusible links(volt/ohm meter). Then start checking plugs. Check power and ground points(volt/ohm meter). Just a note.. I worked on the 60's to present cars.
Offhand I would say that the Ignition Relay or Ignition switch is bad. You will not be able to start a cold diesel without the Glowplugs. If you think about what works and what does not work when the ignition key is not turned on, many of the things match your problems.
If you lost your Ignition the truck would stall and just quit. Usually the headlights would still work. The Wipers would not work without the Ignition being in the ON position. Not sure how your horn is wired but most Honk with the Ignition in any position.
Now there is a difference when you say it won't start: whether you mean it does not crank or that it cranks but will not start. If the Ignition is working-the Glow plug Timer should cycle, but it will need power from the power Relay. So when you turn the key you should hear the timer.
There can be a Master power fusible link. It should be near the battery. You can go register your truck at Autozone.com and get free wiring diagrams.
I would think that you have a spark problem. There is an Ignition Relay or ECC Relay. Your need to know certain Pin connectors to test the functions of the Crankshaft sensor and Camshaft sensors.
You may have a "check engine" light showing on the dash and it is not apparent because the dash lights have not cycled off with a no start condition. You may be able to scan the truck for a diagnosis.
While you may have fuel pressure at the test port, your injectors may not be opening. But since you used starting fluid to no avail, most likely you lack spark.
Your truck should have an ECC or Ignition Relay and perhaps an ECC diode. These parts provide power to the other components of the spark system. The secondary parts like Crankshaft sensors, the Camshaft sensors, and others use the power from these Relays.
You can satisfy yourself about fuel pressure by checking pressure at the test port, but spark seems to be your issue.
Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.
The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter
It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.
ok well this is where you might be incorrect... either you have a 12 volt wire bleeding scross or you have a bad ignition switch. the run wire off the ignition switch is the only thing that will keep it running unless you have a remote start then of course that could keep the engine running. you might want to start by making sure the ignition switch is beaking the signal to the PCM.
if this is a ford pick up. ther is a starter solonoid on the rt side of the front fender that controls the starter, open the hood and look for it, it will have a round body with wires going to bothsides and out the top of it, make a jumper short across both big terminals with the big wires and see if the truck will start, if it does the solonoid is bad, replace it, that should work.
