First, thank you so much for your help!
Second, yes, I think I remember how to do a current draw test, but you tell me (still trying to get my mechanic's chops back)--place the wire that we want to measure in series with a resistor and place a voltmeter across the resistor, and don't turn the ignition. I remember something about Ohm law and Kirchoffs law but that's not much help on the practical level. Lol
But get this--I let the truck sit for an hour, went out and it started right up.
UPDATE: Started up after an hour last night, but this afternoon the truck won't turn over. Maybe I should get the alternator checked? If it's not charging then the vechile wont keep charge or stay running?
