Take ur battery to ur local auto parts store and have it checked, it may be shorted. If it checks out good, check ur truck for short circuits. Connect only positive battery terminal tightly, place negative cable just touching the negative battery terminal, if it sparks really bad, u have short somewhere, start removing fuse til it doesn't spark. It should only spark lightly due to some accessories running but not so bad that u can actually hear a loud spark
