Mine won't start after changing battery
My truck usually sets unless I need it for hauling, lately it has been setting a lot. I guess just setting out their in the cold never having been run, the battery went down. The first time this happened I put the battery tender on it for the night, the next day it did start, I ran it around that day with no problem.
Maybe two weeks later after it setting again, it would not start again. I put the battery charger on it all night again, next day it still would not start, but I did see and smell a little smoke coming from the battery area as I was exiting the truck.
Figuring the battery was dead, I attempted to jump the truck, to go to the store and have a new one put in. It would still not start. I went to the store and brought the battery home, put it in, and it still refuses to start.
I have left out of this story the fact that the truck never did attempt to turn over. It did not click, click, click as if it were even attempting to try to start either. It just clicked once as if power had been transferred to the area needed but thats all.
I then noticed the battery fuse cover and looked in there but what I saw looked like something you would see in a high voltage electrical box. I did not see anything in there that looked like if had burned, causing the smoke I saw earlier.
The rest of the electrical on the truck works normally with nothing to indicate the battery is low.
The truck is a 98 4.6 auto, 4x4 Please send help and a tow truck. Thank You
