Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck will not start. Power on and lights etc working but not cranking over.
Cleaned battery terminals still nothing. I can hear a click when I try to turn over
but not in engine bay. The sound is under the gear selector.

I need your model year? Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. I usually look up starter wiring diagram, then offer testing advice. Is neutral switch in center console? I can't look up component locations w/o model year?

The neutral switch is on the turn nob for 4X4 options.


Battery has a full charge and connections all good? Note the diagram. Did you check those fuses? Is starter relay removable? Any applicable trouble codes?
