I have a 1995 F-150 that has 180,000 miles on it. 2 weeks ago I had the spark plugs replaced and since then the truck has acted like it had a dead battery. I took it for diagnostics at a local repair shop. The battery, altenator and starter all checked out good, so my next step was to replace the solenoid. Still when I try to start the truck it still clicks like a dead battery, but lights, radio, etc work. If I put the charger on, it will start within seconds. I have checked connections to the starter and altenator, and made sure the battery terminals were tight and all of the connections to the solenoid were secure. This is very frustrating since I have never had a problem with this truck. Is the starter relay in need of replacement, and if so where is it? Or is it possible that I am having ignition switch problems that is not allowing contact. That really makes no sense, because when I put the charger on it will start right away.
