Well somethings i need to know?

Is the truck engine turning over and just not starting?

If the truck is turning over i would first off guess either gas or elelctrical problems.

If the starter is not turning the engine over, then i would point at the starter relay (you should hear that click when you turn the key). Also if you find that the relay is fine and it is just not clicking then i would look at the ignition switch on the steerin column.

. )

Also, it may be the ignition control module. If the engine turns, but no spark, this could be the ptoblem also. Good Luck!

Difference between circuit breaker and relay?

A relay senses a condition (voltage, flow, amperage, pressure, level, etc.) and allows component actuations (circuit breaker operation, pump start, valve open/close, etc.) to occur. It is part of the control circuitry for a component. A circuit breaker interrupts electrical current flow by opening a circuit under load conditions. Both can provide component protection, but only a circuit breaker directly protects components. A relay could actuate a circuit breaker to provide protection.

1. Relay-"it is the sensing device which is connected to power circuit and if the any parameter of circuit crosses safe limits ,it sends signal to circuit breaker to break circuit."2.

What are the disadvantages of using fuse in a circuit breaker instead of a relay?

The question is not right. The fuse and circuit breakers are two different protective devices used in the system. It is unlikely that the system has both fuse and a circuit breaker. Fuse is a piece of wire of suitable rating that burns off safely when the current goes above the rated capacity of the fuse wire. Once it is fused (burnt) it cuts off the current flow. It needs to be replaced to restore the current flow. The circuit breaker is a more advanced protective device. It is capable of isolating the circuit automatically if connected to a relay, say over current relay. The over current relay senses the over current in the circuit and triggers the breaker to trip off safely to isolate the circuit. No destruction happens to circuit breaker. It can be switched back once the fault is cleared. Like over current relay there are many such relays - earth fault relay, over voltage relay etc for example.

What is function of damping relay in circuit breaker?

The anti-pumping relay is a device in circuit-breaker whose function is to prevent multiple breaker closures. For instance, if the operator gives the closing command to the breaker by pressing the close button and the breaker closes. However, a fault in the system causes the breaker to trip. Since the close command is still in the pressed condition, there is a chance of the breaker closing again and being tripped by the relay multiple times. This can damage the closing mechanism of the breaker. The anti-pumping relay prevents this by ensuring that the breaker closes only once for one close command from the control panel.

What is the Difference between circuit breaker and a relay?

A circuit breaker is a device for the limiting of current supplied to a circuit. Typically using a bi-metalic strip of metal to sense an increased current. The bi-metallic element will react to the increased current by heating up, and typically 'tripping' a mechanisim that will open or clear the circuit. When the bi-metallic unit cools of, the circuit breaker can usually be reset. After repeated 'trips', it is possible for the circuit breaker to become ineffective, wear out, and require replacement. A relay is an electro-mechanical device, typically used to control a system or application. Where as a electrical current is passed through a coil of wire, generating a magentic force which then effects a mechanical response. Such as opening or closing a contact that completes another electrical circuit. A circuit breaker is to designed to protect an electrical circuit, and a relay is designed to control one. Unless a relay has a circuit breaker included in the construction (very uncommon/extremely rare), it is no protection to an electrical circuit.
