If it will start with a jump but won't stay running then it is probably the alternator. If it was your battery then the alternator would keep the truck running.

I have a 1992 F150 5.0 that wont start all i hear is one loud click


This sounds like it is either a bad battery with a possible dead cell or a bad solenoid. If you haven't done so try jumping the vehicle by connecting ground to the engine block and disconnecting the positive cable from the battery and connect the positive jumper cable to the positive cable directly. If the vehicle starts then the battery has a dead cell. If it starts and dies when the cable is disconnected you ahve a faulty alternator or charging circuit.

2004 ford f150 wont start.take fuel pump out and jumped it ,it wo


fuel pump relay, or the simplest solution check the fuse block to see if you have a blown fuse. Most likely its the relay, but check the fuse block, under the dash and under the hood, maybe you'll get lucky. Good Luck.

Truck wont run


From your brief description I would guess your alternator failed, and when you ran down the battery the truck died. Was there a charge light lit on your dash? Cars will run a long time on just the battery, but when you turn on the lights, wipers, heater and other stuff it drains faster. A jump or a charged battery will confirm if this is true. From there it is back to the basics: fuel, spark, compression.

With more information we can go further.

How do you check if altenator is charging battery,


Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.

Check gauges light on f150


first check to see if battery fully charged and if it isn't put it on a charger and if the truck takes a jump and you can get it running while it is running take the positive side of the battery cable off and if it dies then it could be the alternator if it doesn't die then it could be the drive belt because if the belt is slipping that will also cause the battery to loose charge and the truck will not start
