    Is the starter motor visible on 4.9s? If it is, try whacking it a few times with a hammer (not too hard but not too soft) and then try to crank the engine. If it starts you need a new starter motor.

    Put a 12v lest lamp in line between the negative cable and the battery terminal. If the lamp illuminates, you have a draw. Start pulling fuses until it goes out. That will tell you what circuit or component is the problem.

    If you do have a bad starter or connection(sometimes a bad starter won't make a sound, I had one make a air sound) cranking it will also kill it, but check for a draw as Ranger suggested.

    Thank you guys for all your suggestions.. I had a mechanic come out and he replaced my starter and it worked, I'm just glad it wasn't anything major. But now my heater hose connector broke off and is stuck in one of the heater hoses but that should be a quick fix..
