Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck won't start. The lights come on. I turn the
key. It makes one slight click, the lights go off & it
does nothing. Any suggestions.

Sounds like a dead battery. Should have the battery checked out to see if it would hold a charge, also should make sure the charging system is working properly.


Check the battery. Check all battery connections for corrosion. The connections need to be clean and tight. This includes the grounds. Also check the connection at the starter.

We tried to jump it off but that didn't work. Will take the battery & have it tested & report back. Thank you
