If it does not have alot of miles check the postive cable running to the starter. Shoulds like the same problem I had, It was the postive cable going to the starter. I made my own postive cable for about $12 new or you can buy it already made for $65 new. Take the old one off and make sure you make it just like the one that came off the truck. If the truck has alot of miles have the starter checked at any parts store.

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...


have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy
