Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Ford F-150 5.4L - Engine will not crank or even jump start. Battery voltage is 12.57. Gauges in vehicle go crazy when I turn the key to start. It makes the sound of a silinode jumping.
The solenoid may be activating but it sounds like the copper busbar inside the solenoid is arced out and not making good contact. A new solenoid should fix your problem.

The gauge symptoms are what normally happen when the battery has been disconnected, or the battery is low.
12.57 is a marginal battery that could be the cause of the starter motor relay not working correctly.
The other route is the low battery coupled with corrosion on the lugs at the battery and/or the starter.
I would start with checking the battery connections for corrosion, and having the battery tested to see if it will handle the load the starter motor puts on it.
