Check the wirings and fuses again. Something wrong with one of the two.

Truck wont start

It could be the fender mounted starter relay under the hood. Or if you took off the small wire at that relay (its from the ignition switch), it should have voltage when the key is held in start. If it does have power in start, probably the relay. If no power in start, either the switch or the neutral safety switch is acting up.

My truck won't start. i turn the key and get power to everything but won't start the truck. I have change the ignition relay and had a tune up. could it be the ignition switch

Check the starter solenoid, usually mounted on the starter, by Tapping on the solenoid ( small cylinder mounted on side of starter) while someone turns the key, making sure you have no loose clothing and your body is away from the belts and fan(s).This doesn't always work and typically you can get a new starter and solenoid for slightly more than just a solenoid, and it is much easier to change them both as a unit.

I replaced the ignition switch, but I am not getting any response when I turn the key. the engine will turn over by jumping the solenoid, but will not start. It's like there is no electricity to the key or...

Check the fusable link at the solenoid to the firewall or battery. There should be two of them. Also there is a relay that can be a problem from time to time.
There will be two or at least one rubbery wire coming off the solenoid that goes into to the wiring harness. Push and pull around you will notice a stretchiness the others do not have. This is the fusable link. Check for continuity and replace with the SAME WIRE. If you use a jumper and the problem is fatal to the circuit you will burn more up than the truck is worth.

Truck wont turn over but the lights and radio still work is it the starter

If you have tried a boost.......even though the lights and radio work and hear a click when turning to may need a starter.
It would be best to check for voltage to the starter and from the smaller wire at the starter solenoid when turning the key to start position before replacing the starter.
With the truck in park or neutral....jump the starter solenoid from under the truck......with no cranking from the starter under these conditions....yes...... you may need a starter.

If you do not get a voltage reading at the smaller wire at the solenoid when the key is in start mode....check the wiring,starter relay,the safety neutral switch and the ignition switch.
If you have anti theft.........this may cause a no start too.

Truck does not start--lights do work.

You should never bypass a fuseable link. Check your ground iff the battery and replace the fuseable link.

Power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition

Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

sounds like you might have a problem with your ignition switch, it's sticking and acting like your key is in when it's out.
