Truck was running great.  Today try to start
it and it would just click so I charge battery

truck off then back on.  Just clicks.  I've
changed the battery terminal connectors.
Doesn't help.   At night when I try to start
the truck.  When the click happens there is
a spark under my engine. What can this

Okay the battery is less than a year old does that mean anything is making the battery go bad?

So you jumped the the truck it runs.motor is fine.now clear your brain.nothing wrong with motor.(so it is some where in the middle) that spark under your engine is what's taking you battery down.do not think I have heard a spark under the engine.sounds like a wire dangling hitting the block this could be big trouble find where that spark is without starting engine.would .like to hear more about this.
