    2006 'X' will not crank over. Good battery, starter and fuses. voltage check shows 12+ volts at starter with volt meter. I can hear relay in glove box fuse box click when turning ignition key to the start position. i switched position with all other relays in the engine compartment fuse/relay box as well as swapping relays around.

    Well, since nobody else jumped in yet...

    If it was the fuel pump or anti-theft not recognizing your key then it should crank fine without firing up.

    If it was a cam or crank sensor you'd probably get a check engine light and a specific code for that.

    An 06 would have one of the old white model IPDMs if you haven't replaced it yet, but I don't know if that can cause a no crank condition. Might be related and worth checking.

    Not cranking at all sounds more like a bad starter or weak battery to me.

    Guessing bad Key.. Try another programed key.. sounds like the ANTI-Theft Crap.. Crank crank crank but no fire.

    Was my first attempt in making spare key.. Did not work out so well. dam electronics.

    If it won't crank at all, my money is on the starter. Have someone hold the key in the start position and crawl under the truck. Find the starter and hit it with a hammer a few times. No violently. Just a few taps.

    For some reason I read that in Christopher Walken's voice... And it was awesome.

    For real though. Any luck with this one yet?
