I thought it was the computer box, cause the clicking sound comes from underneath the steering column

Do you have good battery power?? turn your headlights on are they bright? if not check your battery, if that checks out then under the hood near the battery there is a starter solenoid, with the truck in park, key in the run position, jump the two large terminals to see if it cranks over.

so if this works what does it mean the issues is or how do i fix it?
