Getting the Wheeling Fever
Over the last year, on a rare occasion, my truck would refuse to start up. I would get a click and all the power would kick on just fine. But the engine wouldn't try turning over. Now it's permanent. It won't kick over at all.
The batter has plenty of juice, I just replaced the starter last month, I'm pretty certian the ground comin off the battery is fine. My last thought would be the ignition. Whattya think??? I gotta go to the friggin MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL GAME!

Likely worn copper contacts inside the starter solenoid. See the page above for troubleshooting and repair information. IF you isolate the problem to the starter solenoid, its an easy and inexpensive repair.

Body Damage is Cool
usually when you have power and just hear a click, the starter solenoid contacts are burned out. they're pretty cheap to replace, or you can just file them if they're not too far gone.

you might also have a loose ground somewhere

This can be the cause even if the starter/silenoid is virtually brand new?

By "brand new" I assume this is a brand new "rebuilt" starter, vs. a brand new OEM starter? If it is a rebuilt unit, then yes, a rebuilt starter may only have been cleaned and painted and put in a box. Follow the troubleshooting steps on my web page, the key one is to measure the voltage at the starter solenoid control terminal. If its more than 1/2 volt below the battery voltage (under load) then your problem lies upstream from the starter; i.e. in the wiring, connectors, relays and switches between the starter and the ignition key.
