for the last 3 days my truck has decided, completely randomly to not crank period. yesterday, swapped the clutch position sensor and swapped relays. She started, shut er down swapped relays back (origonal relay) and fired right back up. I'm completely lost as to why and whats wrong. Where should I start checking?

the only other thing i could think of is a bad reley or bad connection.....sometimes it works..some times it dont...i have a LED light on my glow plugs..when ever the relay is truned on..the LED will light...i have a stansor relay going to hell right now...some times she comes on..some times she dont...some times i need to hit the key 2 or 3 times before i finaly get out and cross the relay with a screw driver only to jump back in the cab to see the relay is now on...

so i'm still learning the ins and outs of these motors, would a faulty gp/gpr cause the truck to not even crank? what is a stansor relay?

no...i used the GP relay for an example..in my truck..i have the same relay as the GP on my starter..its located on the pasanger side fender well...not sure if you have the same starter relay..they changed it some where down the road...your relay may be built in down on the starter..
