Lots of stuff !
#1 If you can ,try to start it in neutral.
#2 In park hold the key so start and have an assistant rap the
starter motor lightly with a bar or whatever(if that works the brushes
in the starter are going,starter time)
#3 turn on the headlights ,have your assistant watch,they should
be bright,then turn the key,if the lights stay bright,it's a fault of the
starter or key/ignition system. If the lights go dim or out it's just
a battery terminal connection.
A few things to try anyway,good luck.

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

I have a 1996 chevy truck and with the key off my lights are on and my back light is on and when i try to start it there is nothing?


Is the lights being on draining the battery, if not then you have two problems, first check the lights, unplug connector from headlight switch and see if that turns lights off, if so then replace the headlight switch, next is the starting if battery is fully charged and nothing happens when key is turned then i would start by checking the starter, with a test light have someone hold the key in the start postion while you test starter, the back of the starter seliniod you will see two connections, one is a big connection with a battery cable going to it, that cable should have power at all times then theres a small connection next ti the big one with a small wire, thats the trigger wire that should have power when key is in the start postion, if theres power to both then replace the starter and thats the starting problem. good day.

check for power at starter and also check for power on ignition wire on starter selonoid while ignition is turned to start position. be cautious as it could engage. do you have power to trk radio,lights etc?? If not then check all batt cables connections to batt and grounds and to starter. also check fuses for a starter relay.

There are several ways to add more ground wires. If your battery ground cable is clean and tight, you can use 10 or 12 gauge black automotive wire and terminal ends to make your own grounds. Ground from the negative battery terminal to the engine. Ground from the negative terminal to the metal firewall behind the engine. Ground from the negative terminal to the chassis.

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!
