Truck wont start?

When we loaded my truck on the trailer i just used the starter to crank the engine over and pull it self up onto the trailer..

about half way up i was like huh, i wonder if it'll start up just for ****s and giggles.. nothing

it just cranked and cranked..


I haven't really had a chance to get in there and look around and see what was going on with everything.

if the computer got fried it wouldn't do anything right?
and could the air hammer trip the inertia switch? i don't really think so but a few friends do, asking cant hurt


Any Suggestions?
