Follow your positive battery cable, it will lead you to the starter, or a remote selenoid which will have a cable going on to the location of the starter

I suspect the key switch but I have had trouble starting the truck and I have a new battery. The truck won't do anything now when I turn the key. the funny thing is that it did start one day and then the...

fuseable links are located a few inches away for each componet
starter solenoid
any other factory option that uses more than 30 amps per hour
I do think you have a connection problem or a cable internally corroded
take jumper cables and connect to the starter and compare the ohm readings
the solenoid wire can be corroded as well causing a no start and no voltage reading too

1997 s10 blazer no-start, possible ignition switch, how do i trouble shoot?

If the car does nothing at all when you turn the key, the first thing to do is make sure the battery has sufficient voltage. Do this by turning on the headlights. They should be very bright. If the battery is good, check all connections between the battery and the starter, check for blown fuses. If everything checks out ok, then you need to make sure the starter is good. This can get a little tricky if the starter is hard to reach. With the car in park or neutral, parking brake on, turn the ignition key on, locate the starter. At the back of the starter, there will be some wires connected. The large red wire is coming from the battery. What you need to do is take the screwdriver and touch it to the connection and at the same time, make contact with the engine block. Avoid touching the threaded part of the connection. When you do this there will be some pretty good sparks, so don't be startled. As long as you hang on to the screwdriver by the plastic handle, it can't harm you. If the starter is good, it will engage and start the engine. The problem would be in the ignition switch, or more likely, in the starter relay in the main fuse box under the hood. If the starter doen't engage after a couple of tries, it should be removed and tested.

Trouble starting, will not turn over all the time. replaced starter and still having that problem, also has new battery. so now what is next?

Make sure the connection at the starter is good, ( the small wire). if connections are good even battery connections at battery then i would check out the neutral safty switch, next time it doesnt start try to put in neutral and see if it starts, if it does then switch is bad, i would start with these tests,

2005 Tucson. Good battery. Blinking lights in

Is the battery new or just charged. the battery could be the problem. Check the cables for corrosion or loose connections. The cables can corrode inside the insulation near the battery this can be seen by swollen cables.

Starter clicks does not start

Usually a bad battery connection or bad battery is what causes this. Make sure the cables are clean and properly connected. If so and the car still won't start see if you can jump start the car. If it starts go immediately and get a new battery. Also, most auto parts stores will check your battery to confirm it needs replacing.

Battery died. Charged and Checked good and reinstalled. In ignition key "on" position oil lights etc turn on as normal. In "start" starter motor does not activate. No loud clicking. Looking for manual...

Easiest way to locate the starter is to follow the positive wire off the battery connection to the starter. Once you have located he starter I would put a voltmeter on the positive lead and check to see if there is any voltage reading at the starter while trying to start the engine. You can also check the capacity of the battery by hooking the voltmeter to the battery terminals. Voltage should not drop below 9 volts while trying to start the engine.

I need help with this

How long have you had the battery for? The clicking sound is usually associated with a dead or low battery where there isn't enough power for the starter to crank so it clicks. Test the battery again as it should read 12V plus/minus .2V
If the battery is good, then the starter solenoid, starter cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.
