    Truck didn't start today, Haven't driven it much the last 2 weeks plus its been cold out. Yesterday it was fine today it wouldn't start ,just clicking. Cleaned up the terminals and tighten them still nothing. Put the charger on to jump start it ,nothing.Even put a new/old battery in ,nothing.Thought starter .So I checked the battery area again, it was the positive wire, it wasn't snugged down enough on that side connector attached to the main battery terminal. All is good now. So just make sure they are tight ,
