If the volt meter is less than 13 volts the alternator is bad, have it checked at an auto parts store. If it reads 14 volts or more the battery has a bad cell and should be checked for replacement.

What could be the cause for my vehicle NOT to even turn over, but all dash lights & security seem to work?

the dash draws but 100x less thatn the head lights.
so even a near dead battery make weak lamps work
starter needs 100amps
the had lamps 10amps
the days 0.1amps 100x less.

for get the wheels, engines dead ,wheels are last. never first.

why not jumper cable start the car just like all AAA members do.
see? do it.
and the results will solve this fastests.

if car cranks and starts and runs. then the battery was low
if low charge it , if it wont take a charge replace it.
if it does hold a charge and goes dead driving the charges system is failing, if it fails, clean battery terminals first. and at ever 30k miles.
there are many systems on the car,
each must work in there turn.

Wont start sometimes wont hold charge sometimes, is that batt or starter? what is extra wire to battery for

If the battery won't hold a charge sometimes, it could have a dead cell. You would take the battery out and have it tested or drive the truck to a shop for the test.
The extra wire may be a feed for one of the fuse boxes if it is on the positive cable.

My battery wont hold a charge even when jumped.

The battery may have been bad. They replaced it, and probably neglected to test the alternator. You now need to have both tested.

firstly have the battery checked out - possibly dead cell not holding charge - secondly have the alternator output checked because if the voltage stabiliser has packed up - then that could be the cause of the battery been cooked up -andy
