This should be an easy one its either your battery or your altanator or possibly some bad wiring. Most likely your altanator.

No power but full batteries


Get out your volt meter and check the battery voltage, should be about 12 volts, then turn the key and see how far the voltage drops. If it drops below 9 volts or so, you probably need a new battery. Sniff around the vents of your alternator around fuse box, see if you can locate what actually fried..would suspect the alternator if this happened after driving the truck. The alternator charges the battery as you drive. If it is not functioning the engine will drain your battery until the vehicle dies, and probably wouldn't start even with a jump. Not real sure how to test the alternator without the truck running. Running voltage should be around 14 volts with a properly functioning alternator.

I have a 98 gmc Jimmy my remote lock battery died so we were unlocking the truck with the key and driving well that lasted only 2 days and the truck died we got a jump to get it home got a new battery...


Getting spark? Power coming from the battery I think you meant to say, if I am correct. If it won't jump start, sounds like a cable from battery to vehicle is not connected. Igniton switch connection or fuse maybe. Check the daisy chaining of the negative battery cable for clean contacts. Also a starter relay could be bad. Just some more suggestions to add. Don't drive to far from home until repaired. Towing cost too much as you know by now.
Never did like remote locks, We as humans seem to be getting more and more depended on convienances that cause us more inconvienances. Could try a positive cable to starter to check if it will turn over the starter. Voltage regulator could cause battery not to charge while driving. When car dies, do lights work or they dim from engine sucking battery dry. Just some suggestions.

My truck won't even turn over. I can jump it and it runs but when shut off it won't startagain


if it turns off as soon as you take of the jumper cables the problem is the charging system. it could be the alternator or relay or a fuse. and after that you need to charge the battery.

Pickup won't start. Jumps OK but will not idle


Sounds like you need a new battery and possibly cables. The corrosion (white deposits) is a good indication. Todays vehicle have a hard time staying running with a dead battery since they are computer controlled.

1991 ford f-150 fuel pump will not come on


lets cut right thru the chase and go to the heart of the matter. what you most likely need is a new ecm which is the brain computer that tells everything in the motor what to do and you may have some corrosion on the ecm connectors that run to the wiring harness which in turn could effect your direct connection to the ecm's ability to communicate to the fuel system.

Turning ignition does nothing/when started with cables, lights di


You may have a failed battery, or maybe just dirty battery terminals. Check for both.

If the battery terminals are ok switch on the headlights - if they don't work the battery may be faulty.
If you have a multimeter check the battery terminal voltage- it should be greater than 12V.

Sounds like the alternator is bad. Start the truck, and while it is running, you can test the incoming voltage with a multimeter. If you do not have a multimeter you can remove the negative terminal. If the truck quits, you need a new alternator. If it keeps running with the terminal disconnected your alternator is fine. But if you replaced the battery and the cables, then I would be pretty sure that the alternator is bad.
