My truck won't start every time I turn the ignition. Replaced starter, clutch switch, and relay. When I turn the ignition I hear a light clicking, not srarter vented, not loud enough. Do you think maybe the ignition switch is going bad? That's my next move.

assure the battery is newer than five years old by looking at the push-off labels on the top of the battery...clean the other end of the 1/0 cable as it attaches to the chassis ground with a coarse wirebrush and re- assemble~ we need 300 cold cranking amps at least...NEW battery will fix you if re-newed BIG AMP connections does not help~

Don't begin work on the ignition switch until you have eliminated all other possibilities, last resort. When you begin to pull an ignition switch you are opening a can of worms, you will then have to deal with all the other locks (unless it ha s a different key for doors), re programming the transponder, ECU, and more.

gee that sounds like fun...

there are 2 black with yellow tracers in the wiring harness under the stering column. Each should have a 12volt charge. If not, cut the wire with no voltage and splice it to the live wire. took me over a year to find this out.
