Q: Truck won't crank

asked by on

The wiring from the ignition key to the starter crank position will not engage the binding on the starter to crank the truck.

From your description, it sounds as though your ignition switch is faulty. If there is power on the wire when trying to crank, it could be a faulty starter. You could ask for help from a certified mechanic at YourMechanic to diagnose and repair your ignition issue.
