sounds like an electrical issue pertaining to the starter if you hear absolutely nothing when you turn the key. have you had any problems starting the truck before?


Can you at least hear the fuel pump run? Try to lightly jam it into park, Try it in neutral.


It could be something in the starting circuit or it could be a bad starter motor. Put a meter on the small wire on the starter. Turn the key to "Start" and see if there is a voltage present. If there's no volts, it has to be a fuse, the ignition switch or a relay if it has one.
