Hi, thanks for the help. My truck was perfectly fine then one day wouldn't crank. I had had a lose terminal in the past and thought that was what it was. Kept tightening it but it still wouldn't crank. (It's a brand new battery). I finally realized the bottom of the terminal had corroded through and replaced it with another one. After I replaced it, I got no electrical response at all, lights, ignition buzz, nothing. I had a friend jump me off, drove around for 30 mins or so to recharge the battery. Shut if off tried to crank it again, this time dashboard lights came on but when I tried to turn the key, nothing, no noise or anything. I'm not sure if I need to replace my battery cables b/c they also might be corroded (or damaged from me pulling them to get them on the new terminal) or if I damaged something by trying to crank it so many times?

Hi akayaker and TY for the donation and a Merry Christmas

Double check the condition of the battery and cables/clamp/posts make sure its cleaned and tightened properly everything okay this far-start checking the following, starter, starter relay, clutch switch and ignition switch. Report back all your testing results and anything I need to know

Yes, Rasmataz is really right on troubleshooting the truck. Just check the condition of the battery and the connection. If it doesn't work then you need to check the ignition switch and the clutch switch. If it doesn't work to again then try to check the fuse box, maybe the fuse are worn.
