Tried it with key for about 2 hours last night and couldn't get it... Ended up towing it home at about 2am and this morning it started right up... Lmao think it may be a starter issue and the tow truck moved it enough.. Maybe a loose starter wire? I will pull it apart when I get off today and see what's going on... Starter pretty hard to get to?

Maybe the Ignition Switch, seems to be the fix with just about everything related to starting.

Jon, let us know what the issue ended up being. My truck did this last week. I would try to start it and would only get a single click from the starter. I left it overnight went back and it started and has been fine since. I'm going in to have my connections and battery tested tomorrow. otherwise I may just replace the ignition switch just to rule that out.

Alright guys this morning it started right up but when I tried to start with remote it failed and then again with key. I switched the ign switch and it seems to be working great since... Hasn't failed since then. I will drive all day tomorrow and keep you guys updated! Thanks for the help guys!

I had my ignition tumbler lock up on me the other day. Talking about not fun. Luckily put the key in and tapped on it a few times with a screw driver and it started working again. I am not really feeling putting a whole new tumbler in it. I keep a spare ignition switch in the truck :)

Where did you get your ignition Switch from? And is there a write up anywhere on these forums on how to do it? I know I've seen it but now can't find it.

25$ switch.. SOB i think i payed like 48 last time... and guess wat... wont start again so im changing another one out tonight...

too answer your problem:

hey bro... check a few things before changing random parts..

check your relays... swap the trans n ign relay and see if it starts.... if it still doesnt then try jumping the starter relay with a paper clip or something and make sure the starter turns over. then you kinda of eliminate a few things
