It sounds like the battery may be bad. Can you recharge it? Can you get it jump started? If you can, you can take the truck to a nationally recognized parts store and they can check both the battery and alternator. Also, most do it for free, so there is no money out of pocket.

Chances are, the battery is shot.

Let me know what you find.
