1979 Ford F-150 wont start. NEED HELP ASAP

I would like to get this truck going tonight so any help would be greatly apperciated. I have a 1979 ford f-150 that will not start. You turn the key and the solenoid just clicks. nothing else happens. i have put a new ignition in, new control module,new soleniod, new battery, rebuilt the starter, checked all the grounds, checked the linkage to the tranny, tried starting it in neutral. nothing is working. also engine is not locked up as when i take jumper cables and hook it directly to the starter the truck roars to life. any help would be great thanks

2003 ford crown victoria shuts off when driving i try to start it up it just cranks but wont start. Already changed the fuel pump and spark plugs and that dont seem to work. Any one please Help??

You'll first need to find out if you are lacking fuel or spark to know where to go next. Do a basic test for fuel pressure with a gauge and spark at the plugs when it fails to start.

My 99 ford f-150 blows only hot air.

The A/C system has a pressure switch will keep the A/C from running if the freon is low. It prevents damage to the A/C compressor from low freon.
My bet is you'll need to recharge the A/C system.
