93 F150 won't start

30

Asked by Apr 18, 2017 at 04:45 PM about the 1993 Ford F-150 XLT Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried starting my truck yesterday and it was completely dead, turn the key and nothing happened. As I'm walking to check under the hood I hear it dinging to indicate the door is open. Starts right up. Drive to store with no issue except I notice the battery meter jumping. Try to leave the store and same issue, turn key and nothing happens. Thinking it's a dead battery I call a friend for a jump, waiting for about 20 minutes then all of a sudden I have power and it starts right up. Drive home, turn ignition off and try to restart...nothing. Battery is fine and cables are tight and secure. What could it be that's causing this issue? any help is much appericiated.

Hi ATM and thank you for your help, No power to anything. Thanks for reminding me. When I got home and it was still running, in park I turned on the head lights and the battery meter pegged and the tachometer jumped to about 2500 rpm. When i turned the lights off everything went back to normal before I turned the truck off.
