Electrical system is only as good as its weakest link, in other words the dead battery is soaking up all the power from the good, try disconnecting the dead battery

Clearly Bad Ignition Switch or Ignition Fuse

My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

My 99 mitsubishi galant won,t start battery is brand new and it still won't start it clicks like the battery is dead I even tired jumping starting land it still won't start


either you have a bad connection to your battery or,, you have a bad starter. no other solution. if it clicks when you try to start it and the batterys fully charged,you're getting fire to the starter and it's trying to start,but the starter bendix isn't kicking out.which means it's a bad starter. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Charging batteries


You can charge both batteries at the same time. Just hook up the charger on one battery the same way as you would in a single battery system.

It is a good idea to get some sort of battery tender to hook up whenever you leave your truck parked for over a week.
