If the security light is not flashing when you are cranking it over try starting the truck and smack body of starter with a hammer if it starts it's the starter.

Here is a guide to help you.

We had the starter tested it tested good, also b4 that we tried the hammer thing, cuz I thought the same thing. The battery isnt perfect but we did try to jump it with no luck. We are going over today an put the starter back in with a fully charged battery. Someone did tell me while I have the battery out to touch the pos/neg cables together for 30 sec's to reset the security system.

We have replaced the starter relay. Well we went over, I put the starter back in, installed a new battery, tried to start it an we could hear that the starter was buzzing but not able to move like the engine was locked. So I loosened the starter thinking the teeth were not lined up right and she tried to bump the starter to turn the teeth a bit an the alarm sounded off now it wont let the starter even move. The manual can help us reset the security? Cuz thats what we're thinking is preventing it from starting all before I read your post about the neutral start. It was the gear shift position sensor that was out. All fixed now.
