your battery connections need to be hosed off and corrosion removed...also check the freshness date on top as batteries will degrade 10% per year. Stick it on charge overnite and re-post your problems after all this is taken care of. remember wirebrush battery. all connections to the battery, the ground terminal, the other end of the ground attatchment to the chassis, and to the engine- okay!

so it isnt the starter im guessing? we tried to jump it and we just heard a click when we went to start, all electronics worked in the truck

the dead-party killer battery is sappin the life out of any effort to put the necessary amps to pull it 'round!

give it time to recover...you spent time allowing it to deaden--ify.

you are leaving it on charge...overnite? yes....
