SOURCE: truck won't start
You should check your battery cables with an ohmmeter and see if they have any resistance,they should be at 0 ohms or just alittle over,but could possibly be the starter solenoid also.I had this same problem with my Toyota last year,hard starting sometimes needed a jump and then the alt went bad,turned out to be the solenoid was shorting intermittantly.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: charging system failure
Hello! The problem you are experiencing is most likely due to a fautly or malfunctioning alternator. You can take the car to any major auto parts store, and they can do a FREE charging system test which will tell you if your alternator is operating (and charging the battery) properly, as well as if your battery is accepting the incoming charge from the alternator.
Hope this helps and good luck!

The clicking sound is either coming from the starter relay or the starter solenoid switch.If the starter makes no click then it has to come off and get new brusjhes put in it or have the solenoid replaced.You can check it by jumping the post with the battery cable fastened to it to the smaller post with the small wire on it either with a small screwdriver or a piece of wire.If it goes then,then you need the relay,if it does nothing then you need to fix the starter.
