Another wonderful problem with this damn truck.
A few days ago, maybe a week, my daytime running lights just quit.
I did a search and mostly found people saying that's a good thing, why
would anyone want them on anyway. So, I did nothing, it was too cold
to want to mess with it.
Then, a few days later, my truck was getting a little bit harder to
start. Still started fine, just it was slower turning over. This
lasted just one day.
The next day it started right up, ran for a while warming up and I left
for work. About 100 yards from my driveway it just stalled and
wouldn't start, battery acted dead.
All I needed to do was touch jumper cables from my battery to another
vehicle and I could start my truck up like it was perfect.
I was told to check the alternator with a screwdriver on the back of it
to see if it's magnitized and it was, so he said that my alternator was
I cleaned the battery terminals, side ones, and replaced the positive
top post one. Still the same thing.
So, I purchase a new battery. It starts right up, and lasts for a
little over a day, then it's right back to the way it was before.
Except, now I have no blower, radio, clock, cruise control and wipers.
The dim and bright lights, dash, radio, etc. lights work, the cd player
will eject and take a cd.
I have checked all the fuses and all are good, I used a multimeter.
The only ones that I didn't check were the ones with more than 2
connections (didn't know how to check them).
I used my jumber cables as battery cables to test to see if the cables
were bad and still nothing turned on.
What is wrong with this piece of crap?
