Sometimes Starts sometimes won't

Asked by Jan 27, 2016 at 09:03 AM about the 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our truck began to just not start one day.  We were told it was a dead battery.  
We replaced it and then it started happening again.  We can't even jump start
it when it is in this mode.  We will try repeatedly to turn the key and then just
like magic it starts right up.  It will go from nothing but a click to starting right
up.  What is wrong with it? My brother had the same issue with his ford and he
even put a new starter on and he said it still will do it.  We can't afford
replacing parts that won't fix this issue. Please Help!
