When the temperature outside drops below freezing, my truck will not turn over at all. I have to remove one battery cable and then replace it before the truck will start. Before I do that the key can be turned and there seems to be no battery at all hooked up. But as soon as I pull one off and put it back on it starts right up. Also, my clock and interrior lights work fine even before I take off a cable and replace it. My battery has already been replaced. Thank you for your attention.

Have you checked to make sure both terminals are clean and tight? Also, have you checked to make sure the ground is clean and tight on the ground?

Let me know.

Yes, I have cleaned both terminals. Its really odd because it works after I have removed it and then I can just lightly place it back down it will start. Its almost like there is a breaker switch that has flipped or something.
