Some one please refresh my memory...What are the 3 relay behind radio? I am having starting issues. Hot batteries, good alternator, but truck clicks in dash and lights go out when turning to start. Rolled over good last night but no start then just stopped cranking period. Wont do nothing but click. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried holding up the shifter lever?

Mind does this occasionally.

Could be a faulty ign switch I suppose

Yes even tried in neutral. Just dead click. I believe center dash relay is fuel pump and another couple. Just hard to trouble shoot blind.

The truck should still turn over if the fuel pump was dead. It just wouldn't start.

Maybe your starter is stuck engaged. Might try hitting it with a hammer a few times while someone turns the key.

Clicking usually means low voltage to the relays. Are you sure battery are fully charged? Put them on a charger overnight or try jumping/boost charger. Clean all the connections make sure no loose grounds. I have had a starter that was on its way out cause similar problems (Too much current draw).

UPDATE: found most of the problem last night. Solenoid fell off starter. Never seen that before. Just the wires holding it in place. 50 miles home for new starter and back at work. Ill put the starter on this afternoon. I hope it was the cause of my problems. Wish me luck. And thanks again for all the help ya'll
