My truck won't start. When I turn the key, it clicks (thought it was starter). Then it does absolutely nothing. No interior lights, dash lights, nothing. No power whatsoever. Then I jump start it. It starts right up with the jump. Then I put it in gear and it stalls. At that point I have ABSOLUTELY NO POWER. None. I then jump it and it starts right up again.
Now, about a month or so ago I replaced the battery. I have since noticed that my negative battery terminal appears to be slightly melted and thought (but not sure) while jumping it one time that smoke came from negative ground terminal. While idling, the truck and engine sounds fine. About a week before all of this, I noticed a humming sound inside while driving. It seemed to get higher as I accelerated, as if my radio was left on an 'am' station.(Does that make sense?)
Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
