Question about Toyota Tundra
You need to check that there is 12V power to start terminal on the starter motor when ignition is turned to the start position. If there is then you will need to check the starter motor, it may need the solenoid replaced. If there isn't 12v power to the terminal on the starter solenoid then you need to check the ground cables etc.
Let me know if you need more help.

These trucks have a starter with an integral solenoid. The contacts are prone to wear and they cause exactly the problem you describe. You can easily replace just the contacts if you remove the starter and then the contact cover. The contacts are available at Toyota or any good parts store. Here's a really good website that describes the problem and procedure:

Thanks for choosing FixYa. OK, If the battery, starter, and fuses and relays are all new, you need to check all your connections. Make sure your terminals are cleaned and tight on the post. If you have no power to your vehicle, you have a issue with the charging system. You need to check the battery, alternator,, and starter wires. You may need to test them with a voltage meter just to make sure they are getting power. Since all these parts are new, I would expect a wiring problem. It may be something different with similar symptoms. You need fuel, air, and fire to start the truck. When you turn the key and hear nothing, it can only be between the ignition fuse/relay, battery, starter solenoid, and the starter. If it is cranking, it could be a fuel issue or ignition system issue. You may have an issue with your ignition module. You could have a loose wire or bad ignition box. Have you tried to get any codes off the truck?
