Does the truck turn over but won’t start? If so there is a fusible link running from the starter solenoid behind the battery.
Also if you get nothing when you turn the key could be the solenoid. Its easy enough to jump the solenoid and check . Check all the fusible links coming off the power side of the solenoid and replace as needed.

Hello I have a 89 F150 4.9 inline 6 5 speed manual 4X4. The only way i can start it is by rolling it off. It has a new starter, solenoid, and good battery. All electrical works when key is turned on it...

Most likely is the clutch inhibit switch, the switch is on the rod that goes from the clutch pedal to the the clutch master cylinder.Could be a bad ignition switch but that is rare.The clutch switch is designed to keep the vehicle from cranking without the clutch engaged.Make sure the floor mat is not wadded up under the pedal.

Ford f150 2003 i need to troubleshoot my alternator,willnot start

It sounds to me like you have an issue with your battery not being fully charged.

If, after you drive the truck for a while and you still can't start your truck without jumping it that would lead me to believe that either your battery is in need of replacement or your alternator isn't working as it should.

What you can do is try to charge your battery to full capacity. If the battery is able to charge fully then you know its not your battery. Also after you have the battery fully charged try to start your truck up. It should turn over just fine. If it doesn't I would check and make sure you have enough cold cranking amps for your application.

If its not the battery the next place to check would be the alternator which charges your battery while the engine is running.

I hope you find this helpful and good luck,

If the battery is new.

If you jump start it but then it will not start after being run then the alternator could be your problem. Alternatively the ECU could be another problem.
