check for a live feed to the low tension wire at the starter when a second person operates the ignition key. if no feed check fuses relays and then back of the ignition assembly. has it got an after market alarm fitted that may have gone faulty and has shut down the starting circuit. if so you need to find the wiring that it has been linked into and rejoin the original wiring back together.

check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

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.
