Hello: I have a 2005 Ford F150 that will not start.
I turn the key and it does not even crank. All the lights, radio and stuff works.
The truck will not even jump start.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Step 1: Make sure battery is fully charged and tests good.
Step 2: Make sure battery connections are clean and tight
Step 3: Come back with your results

Does this have an aftermarket alarm system installed?

Is the factory theft indicator flashing on top of the dash when you attempt to crank the engine?

There is nothing aftermarket installed.
Yes, the factory theft indicator is flashing on top of the dash when trying to start it.
I have tried using 2 different keys, have tried to jump it with a jump pack and nothing.
It doesn't make a sound. The radio plays, the headlights work.

If there is a PATS problem, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily (for more than 3 seconds) when the key is turned to ON or START.



It appears there is a problem in the passive anti-theft system. If both PATS keys don't work, you will probably need to have the PATS system scanned to see what trouble codes are stored and look at PATs data info. This can only be done with a high end scan tool.

I'd like to know how a bad starter makes the security light flash.
