First thing to do is check your fuses. Then clean your battery terminals, cables, and grounds. If truck still will not turn over, run a wire from the battery right to the positive side of the starter. Starter should turn no problem. If not, I would say your battery is shot.


It's not the battery. I thought it could be the problem and since it was old I went ahead and replaced it. So there is a new battery and I've cleaned the battery cables.
