I went out this am to go to work and when i turned the key there was nothing - no trouble prior to this. I boosted the truck and left it going for about 20 minutes. i then proceed to work and i never got a hundred feet from house when the truck cut out. i tried starting and nothing. Then i boosted it again and continued on to work. When i arrived at work and just before i parked it, it cut out again. Wandering if time for a new battery or some other problem.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
you (at the least ) blew 1 or many fuses,
you do that and risk blowing up a fortune on electronics.
its not 60 Chev, that is so forgiving...
fuses: (ijm at alldata.com looking)
fuse 19, 80amps engine bay fuse box. bam?
are the head lights dead, they work all the time, even keys in pockets.
are they part of nothing.
then... that means... fuse 19 is bad.
open the fuse box in the engine bay see those.
they will all be dead, and 19 toast.
i just use a voltemeter to find which are blown.
starting there, then working to the cab box.
0v bad, key on
Hi: Have run into same type of problem, turned out to be a dead or very battery. Has nothing to do with the ignitin switch. With a low battery have also had trouble getting the key out of a 95 Jimmy. Boost unit to get running then discommect battery, if unit stall right away replace alternator, if stays running replace battery. If you get the unit runnimg and try to drive it as is you should find lacks power and wants to stall.
