Pull positive cable back off of the battery for a few minute,s,make sure the key is not in truck,then put key in igintion to the on position and replace battery cable,should crank.

If it is only clicking,check the battery,sound,s like it may be weak,or bad connection,at termanal,s.

obviously I am a girl asking these questions! How would I check the terminals to make sure connection is good besides pulling everything off and starting over
