Truck was parked and now it wont start. Tried to jump it Battery is good. When the key is rolled over to start the starter starts to work for about a second or two then all power is lost. When key is in on position I have some power. Tried a new battery and had same results. Tapped starter too. Without a jumper vehicle there is now no power when trying to turn the key over to start the vehicle. With a jumper vehicle there is power until I try to start the truck then again starter works for a second and all power is lost.

Hi deepsixsix, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

At the starter relay there's a small terminal mark S get a screwdriver short out that terminal to the battery side-not the starter side-this will cause the starter to crank the engine over without the key-Let me know

Thank you for the message, I will try that in the morning.
Today I tried again to jump start the truck with no luck. I replaced the ignition switch and starter. Again I had the same results. Today I noticed that when the key was turned to the on position I had power inside the truck and the check engine, battery lights were on. When the key was rolled over to start the truck the lights went out and a single click noise came from the starter. Upon releasing the key sometimes there was still power and sometimes not. I then tried to jump the solenoid with a screwdriver across the 2 posts. I got a spark and again the starter clicked once and then I had no power. I also noticed that when rolling the key to start the truck, #1 and #2 relays also made a single click noise. I then replaced both and again had the same results trying to start the truck.

Test the starter relay and transmission range sensor.
