Q: Truck not starting

When dealing with a no crank and no start condition, the first step would be to perform a starting/charging system check. This would ensure that the battery is still within proper operating voltage. If the battery can't deliver sufficient voltage to the starter, the starter will be unable to activate and turn the flywheel. The starter solenoid also could be the cause. Lack of air supply to the motor, insufficient flow of fuel, or lack of spark can cause a vehicle not to run, but still able to crank. A check of all the wiring to and from the starter should be done. An inspection like this can easily be set up with one of the qualified technicians here at YourMechanic to diagnose your car's starting issue.
