Sounds like your starter solenoid. When the starter or starter solenoid goes, you can have all the power in the world attached to it, and it won't send power to the starter to crank the engine. I would take the starter off and replace it.

i think its your solenoid too. possibly flat spot in starter? heres a fairly esay wayto see if its your solenoid .find an old screwdriver and lay it over the two big posts on your solenoid if your truck turns over then just replace the solenoid it is bad

before you buy that starter try one more thing.bypass the regulator mounted on the fender. You can do this with a pair of jumper cables. hook one lead to the positive side of the battery and then touch the other end of the same lead to the side of the regulator that supplies the starter if it cranks your starter is ok and it's you regulator that is the bad component. Be sure the vehicle is in neutral.

unlock the doors, put the keys in the ignition, put the car on the street with a big sign in the back window that reads Take this Ford and Shove it, it wont work for me anymore, only 20bucks as I cant afford to give you anymore. Nick a nevermore ford owner

The problem is in the steering column. Remove the ignition starter switch. There is a little stem that sticks out on top.push this all the way forward with ignition on and trick should crank and start.

no one has spoke about the inter lock system the battery and starter are good and I can remove the starter relay and jump the starter work fine the truck cables were cleaned with the driver door open after that the truck will not crank

the next time you disconnect the battery you need to plug a 9 volt system into the cig lighter in order to keep memory in the ecm
