Need to know which cable (+ or -), and how does the truck act if you don't remove the cable. I'm leaning towards a possible PATS issue, pure speculation, but not sure without more information.

THE NEGATIVE CABLE MUST BE REMOVED OR TRUCK WILL NOT START.

Think it IS PATS. So . . . .how do I disable? truck not worth spending a lot on replacing PATS
