truck wont start please help

Hey all, so i tried to start my truck this morning and i turn the key over and nothing. It wont even try to turn over like the batteries are dead. But all my lights and radio and etc go on fine. I tried to jump start it...same thing nothing. I have on idea where to start. If it helps there is about a foot of snow here. Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

Re: truck wont start please help

if its auto try putting it in neutral if its manual it could be the clutch interlock switch. do your gauges and wait to start light come on i have seen the steering column break internaly it doesnt take very long to unbolt your ignition switch underneath the steering column you can start the truck with the ignition switch when its unbolted and find out best off luck

How old are the batteries? Check all your battery cable connections (both ends) to make sure they are clean and tight. Also, you may want to have your starter bench-tested. Cheers!

Auto or manual tranny? Do you hear any click sound from under the hood?

Had the same issue on my SD the other day.. Test the batteries... My lights and everything came on fine but no where near enough CCA's to start the truck.
