    Let me explain no click from the starter or starter relay means something else has failed(it can be a module eg the PCM) I had my PCM fail on me and I got no click from either the starter or the starter relay

    Of corse there is the theft system if the little lock is on (not flashing) then something is triggering the system and preventing you from starting the truck(most likely the pass lock in the key switch

    Same issue. Took it to my mechanic and they kept it for two days. Started fine for them. When I got it back it was fine for a couple of weeks. Now it's back at it again. I notice it happens after it rains. Not sure. Well it's been 5 days and it still hasn't started. The last time I drove it the steering wheel felt like it was pulling to a halt... then it was hard to turn the truck. I smelled a burning smell near the front tires. Hasn't started since. Gotta call a tow now.

    You may have a wiring issue somewhere that when it rains it shorts out those circuits

    It may have possiblely messed up the PCM in the process(not sure)

    The steering is power steering pump related(been there before)
