My 2005 f-150 was starting fine. I tried starting it the other day and not even a click from the starter. Radio, at blower and Everthing else seems to be fine. Any suggestions on what it could be?

starter relay needs power supplied when driver controls are set and key turned to start, on small start enable wire. battery connections must be in good repair, clean and tight to carry the current demand. the relay by the battery first, then the starter solenoid. if the one at the starter's loose? or you need to smack the one by the battery ? use a test light and a voltmeter, a good bet is the one by the battery, under a cover needs replaced with a high quality part. try borg warner premium.
