Low voltage to your starter, measure your battery voltage if it isn't at least 12.8 volts have it recharged and tested, it it test good reinstall it and do voltage drop test on your cables, make sure the connection are clean and corrosion free. After it starts test the alternator output, it should be around 14.2 to 14.7 volts.

Gas or diesel? If it's the 7.3 diesel you will need both batteries equally charged.

Gas, 7.2 L engine. Energizing the solenoid engages the starter. Problem must be in the start sequence. Art.
