Question about Ford F-150
Any chance the cables got crossed up when boosting ? As in Negative to positive, and positive to negative? Otherwise, I would start by disconnecting battery negative first, then positive, and leaving them off, while you check both battery terminal ends, for any weak spots, corrosion etc, as well as any and all, ground straps you see connected to engine, fenders, firewall, etc, that may have heated up and are now causing bad connection, as well as checking alternator output. Double check any main fuses in power distribution panel/box under hood as well as for loose, corroded wires. Don't be afraid of wiggling them a bit to make sure they are still strong enough to carry current. Then when all checked and/or repaired, check your battery voltage, or try another battery in case something shorted in battery as well. When re-hooking terminal up to your battery, put positive back on first, then negative and snug them up for good connection. Let me know what you find after.
