indicates just sufficient power to start but that is just a surface charge on failing plates

I start my truck, it runs great. As soon as I shut it off it dies

You are correct. If your battery tests good, then the starter is your problem.

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery

if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.

Plymouth voyager won't start

You need to voltage drop test the starter electrical circuit . Do you know how to use a DVOM- digital volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read one , so you know what wires to test ?

I'm pretty sure this is because the starter died ????? Never assume , test don't guess ! And if you don't know how to test automotive electrical systems your best bet ,take it to someone who does .
Test the heavy positive cable to the starter , corrosion cause's unwanted resistance and a no start or slow crank . You test with voltage drop .
Starter Voltage Drop

Or you test the control side through the starter motor relay ! Do you know what a relay is ?
On this video he shows a horn relay but the starter motor relay works the same .
VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Find free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link . You will see the PCM - engine computer turns on the starter motor relay .
