1) Look in the trunk, near the hatshelf for the connector that hooks to the rear window, to make sure that it is connected, AND that it receives electricity when activated from the dashboard. If it receives 12 volts or so, then inspect visually the resistance lines in the window, and check that they are not scratched or broken. Electricity will not flow if those lines arent continuous. I am assuming that you checked for broken fuses first. Broken lines can be repaired.

Testimonial: "Thanks Wabbit, this should be a good place to start. I haven't check the fuse yet. Is it safe to pull the fuse out while the battery is hooked up? "

Welcome to FIxYa.com
First thing to do is check the power to starter with a volt meter.
A. From the battery to starter positive cable check to see if you have continuity.
B. Check the voltage at starter. Red lead of tester to the positive connection and the black lead from meter to a good ground.
Results should be: A. continuity And B. !2 volts
If the results of the above or not what your results are then stop and write to me. If your results are as above continue on to the second test.
Second thing i need you to do is get a Hammer
Now do you know where the starter is ? OK (see diagram)
you will need someone to help you- have this person get in the truck key in ignition -- you go to starter hammer ready holler START ENGINE then tap on the starter with hammer. Will it start?
Now tap the solenoid . It is the little round container on top of starter tap that too. Will it start?
This is an easy way to see if the truck starts if so starter is bad.
Ok We have a service Bulletin on this model for no crank .
