My truck shut off while I was sitting in a drive thru, put it in park to start it back up and got nothing. One click every time I turn the ignition. Tried jumping and still the same. Stuck a screw drive to the firewall and got sparks but still wouldn't start the engine. Any suggestions?
Do you

Good afternoon,

The click, is it coming from the starter motor?

Try tapping it with a hammer and see if it starts.

I attached a wiring diagram for you. Do you have a test light for testing?

You need to get one so we can do some testing.
