Every time I try to start my truck after driving a
while. It won't start. But will jump off no problem.
Always starts in morning when on my to work and

Start by checking the voltage drop on the battery cables, or if they crunch when bent, replace them, check all grounds, especially those from engine to body, if problem still exists then it maybe the starter overheating while you driving and may have to be replaced.
