This word went out to start my truck and it fired up like normal but I noticed some smoke coming out from under my truck and it turns out that the positive cable going to my onboard air compressor was grounding out.

I turned off the truck pulled the fuse and the truck would not crank after this. I took batteries to the auto parts store and they were completely dead.

Installed new batteries and now no crank or start.

Any ideas on where to start?

Check Power at the starter. Possible ECM....there are a lot of possibilities

Checked power. Power to positive terminal and power to switch post when key is crancked. Nothing happens if I jump the 2 posts.

Check all of fuses needed. Inside fuse box and under hood

Thanks BOWTIE67! Looks like the starter solenoid got fried somehow.

She's back up and running better than before.
Might be a mixed blessing.
