When turning the key to start my truck i get nothing at all no lights no starting no noise at all, battery is fine as when i use my plow it works but nothing else is on, what could be the problem. Thanks
Your ignition barrel has failed. It is just a tube with a lot of switches in it and they fail sometimes.

Put the key in ignition and leave in the on position for 20 minutes and it should start after that. I had the same problem with a 99 chev silverado an it worked for that. Hope it get you going. Thanks.Bear001

SOURCE: No Start when key is turned
Ma wish to check starter it could be bad or have loose wires on it. There may be a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood it may also be bad.

Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.

sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys. After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this.
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.
