Are you pulling the arm all the way back up. If not, the ignition is still on and you could be draining the battery. also check the alternator, they can short out on the inside. The solenoid is on the right fender well, do you have the single wire on the correct post
It does sound like you have something that is draining the power from your battery overnight. I had the same problem with a car I no longer have and I went through all kinds of checks to see where the problem was. It wasn't until I went outside one night to put the backrest on a rear seat into position where someone could sit there. To my surprise, the trunk light was on. I fixed the problem (a bad switch) and never had a battery problem after that.
What I am getting at is that one thing you should do to check out the car is to look at it when it is dark outside. If you have a hood light, that might be staying on. Even the interior light might be staying on and you don't notice it during the day time. Also, check your bed light to see if that is staying on. If any of these are the problem, a simple adjustment or switch replacement will cure the problem.
sound like loose wires to the ignition switch in the steering column. just remove steering column shroud and lower the steering column check the ignition switch wires.first disconnect negative battery cable before working on ignition switch. either switch wires loosen or switch could be bad.
The actuator rod has a spring and block the returns the actuator to its normal position. Sounds like one of the three parts are broke. If this is a tilt steering column there is a two piece actuator rod. I am in the process of replacing the upper actuator rod, the pin that connects it to the lower actuator broke off. Never had any ignition problems, one day it just won't turn off due to broken actuator rod. Hope this helps you.
Check all wires and switch used to wire the push button ignition. Make sure none have melted due to the stress from hard starting in cold weather. If a thick enough guage of wire was not used it will get hot and could melt.
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.
