Sorry but ive had trouble finding this topic.
I have an 08 with the 5.7 and just today when I tried to start it it did nothing. no cranking, ticking, absolutely nothing. All gauges worked and the battery was sowing good. Tried a second time and started with no issues. Got off work and same thing. Tried turning off and on after the initial start up and have no issues. After about 1 hour of being off I have the same issue trying to start it up. Heard that it may be a immobilizer coil or starter relay.
Please help narrow down my problem.

Have owned this truck since new and have 112000k and this would be my first issue with my truck.
Interesting thought, this would have been the payoff month if I didn't pay my truck off early. Weird how these things happen once you fully own it.

I think someone else had the same problem and turned out it was a relay. Check in the box under the hood. Should be easy to swap out a relay from something to test. Just make sure they have the same pin configuration.

Do you have any aftermarket electronics installed?

Also, how do you know the battery is good?
