Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought the truck it was starting fine
then I have the net and turn the key and
everything comes on but no starter not
even a click so I go down and wiggle  the
wires and then it turns over after a few
times now it won't do anything no matter
how much I play with the wires any
recommendations on what to do next

If you were able to "wiggle" the wires going to the starter then you likely either have something causing them to not make contact with the starter I.E. loose nuts or gunk between the wires an stud or the stud/post that is on the starter isnt making contact inside it. try the "wiggle" again while noting if the stud/post is moving abnomaly.

Dang spell check won't work for me!!!!!! Also check to make sure that the wires don't have corrosion going back up the insulation.
