Answers :

Check Battery voltage. Is it 12.6V? If less, charge the battery. You say everything else works. I assume you are talking about headlights also. Try turing on the headlights and then starting the truck. Have somone watch the headlights while you do this. If the lights go out while you try to crank, you have a connection ( most likly battery terminals) problem or battery problem. Many batterys break down under load

\015\012If the lights do not dim, you have a starter problem. If this is the case, smack the starter with a wooden broom handle and then see if it starts. Maybe you can get one start out of it to get it to the shop to get the starter replaced or rebuilt. The reason the smacking may cause the starter to work is that the brushes are worn just to the point where they do not contact the armature. Just a slight smack and you may be able to het them to go the few thousands of an inch to touch the armature.
