Ok, about 2 weeks ago went to the store came out and the truck wouldnt start... Here is what it did.
Put key in and turn get all the normal buzzings and lights, turn to start and all lights go off...nothing. Did this a few times and finally started and drove home.
Been fine all week, drove to the city and took my son/daughter to the zoo, alot of running around and back home, all was fine. Next day went out to start the truck and back to square one... Put key in, get all the buzzing and lights, but when I turn to start all lights go out and nothing? Sometimes the dash indicators will just dim and a slight clicking can be heard ( assuming its the starter? ) but nothing????

I checked the battery voltage as well as put it on the charger and it is charged, even on the charger in Jump mode when you turn the key to start all the lights and buzzers just go dark?
I am baffled as I cannot figure this out, it just all the sudden happened one day, good for a few and now I have been down for a week.
Help Please ! How to test/check what? Thank you.

Any click from the starter? Sounds like the solenoid to me.

Went out wiggling everything and nothing, so I gathered my head together and went to basics. Opened the power distributor box and wiggled the starter relay, lo and behold she fired up. Guess I need to replace every relay in this truck since thats what I have been finding so far. Just a few more left anyways...lol Hopefully this was the issue and it wont happen again.
