If you mean will not turn over, it sounds like either your battery is too weak, or your starter is bad. Try this: Jack up truck. Locate starter. Have someone hold the key to the on position like they're starting the truck. As they hold the key, you rap the starter with a hammer. If the truck suddenly turns over, your starter is shot and needs replacement.

It will turn over. Sounds like it will crank but it will not actually crank for at least a hour or so.
