Sounds like something somewhere is pulling your battery power. Check under the hood to see if you have any Belt Chaffing on any of the electrical cables that may be near any fan belts of pulley wheels. sometimes you could even find the Fan Belt embedded into the side of a cable creating a short since your fan belt has wire inside of it, it could give you momentary power once cranked but will draw out on its own leaving the battery to charge on it's own cells.

could have a battery ground , check cables for corrosion.
could also be the starter or the solenoid.
you could also have a dead short in the battery itself, it will be ok if it sits but will give you fits for repeated starts

Quits after warm up wont restart


sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, fuel pumps will usually get hot and then shut off allowing it to sit 30 mins lets the pump cool down allowing it to start pumping, the way you can test it is get a can of starting fluid the next time it quits raise your hood and spray some fluid down into the throttle body and if it starts and then dies it is most likely your fuel pump, hope this helps.

Truck turns over good but wont crank.drift 6 inches drop clutch start right up and start all day


If the starter motor is fine, then how do you know this if it isn't energizing? Have you tested it independently?
If it isn't receiving power, then it is possibly an issue with the solenoid, or ignition.

You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.

Won't start


disconnected the battery last nite, reconnected this morning, started right away.
I noticed a cell phone charger was plugged in, I am hoping this is the thing that was draining the battery, if not, will look further.
