I just fixed my exact same problem. Everyone told me the starter was bad. I knew it had to be electrical because there was no noise when I tried to start the engine. Here's a good way to check to be sure your starter is not the problem. With your key removed from the ignition, the truck in neutral, and the parking brake applied, look under the hood and over the wheel well on the passenger side you'll see a long (about 6-8 inches) black box. This has a removable cover. Take it off and you'll see a bank or relays. First, swap out a relay from another spot on the relay block with the relay in the Clutch inhibit relay spot. The relay location should be marked on the top of the plastic cover. If your truck starts, then you know you have a bad relay. If it still doesn't start, remove the relay from the clutch inhibit socket. Next, take a piece of wiring, about 1 foot will do, and touch one end to the positive post on the battery and the other end of the wire to the socket. If you are looking down at the socket, you'll see 4 prong recepticles. The one to the right and closest to you should be the one you touch with the wire, if the engine doesn't crank, then try the other prong just above it. If the starter makes no effort to spin, then the starter is bad. If it does spin, then you have an open circuit somewhere between your battery to your clutch switch, ignition switch, back to your clutch relay. Rather than try to open harnesses and trace the wire, I just installed a push button and mounted it next to by fuse box below the steering wheel. A wire from the positive post to the button and back to the clutch relay socket took care of my problem.

Make sure you have the plug wires on the correct plug. Check the
ignition timming to make sure it is correct. After running for a few
minutes pull the pluggs to see whitch cylinders are running rich. The
fuel pressure and volume need to be tested.

Additionally, try checking the power transistor. I will send the test. Also make sure the coil has a good ground...
Hope this helps; keep us updated.

Page 169 shows you where the fuse box is located. Check the fuses and if there is one that is blown replace it with the same amp fuse.
Hope this helps.

Hello, Thanks for looking me up. It is story time. From my 25 years plus experience, even if alternator test fine, or battery test fine it does not mean it is fine. Here is the deal, a lot of times, a battery will test OK, but to have it test right it needs to be put under a load. There are meters to do this, and same with alternator. First thing I would do and have done, Is if you car started, get it to a battery exchange place. I am sure in your area, you have these places all over. There little battery shops that only service or sell batteries and alternators,
Advantage to that is, they can put your car under a load, and test your out put of the battery, and alternator, to make sure they are producing the amps it needs to charge. Now, this is after you take some time and check your alternator belt, to make sure it is tight and not slipping, and follow the wires from there down to the battery. Make sure all your connection are good and clean and tight. Sometimes the positive lead going to the battery from alternator, might have a inline fuse in it, and check it, and replace if needed, Check to make sure the ground wire from your battery is clean and the part that is bolted on the frame of the negative from battery is clean service and tight. One thing I am going to ad here, that i did not see mentioned, is sometimes the connection lead to the starter, cause a draw or back ark of amps via the battery, which also will cause battery to drain. Kind of like playing tug a war.Meaning if the leads going to the starter are bad connection could also cause a draw via the 12 volt system. Utilize places, like fire stone, sears, or even those little battery/alternator quick shops I was telling you about, as they have all that fancy testing equipment to pin point it. AND another fact I will let you know, did you know alternators if getting worn will fluctuate , meaning will work and then not work and work and not work. So, sometimes a guy will check the alternator and test good at the time, but then sometimes it doesn't. I hope this helps Mike
