Electrical Problem ?

hey guys I need some help. My 04 6.0 L battery lite came on today. when i got to work the ABS light came on . had 12.1 volts on each battery. cleaned the terminals ( there was a little corrosion) when i tried to start it just clicked. finally got it started back up. after 10 minutes the instrument cluster went dead then the truck died. any ideas??? nothing at all works.

You need to seperate the batteries and load test them individualy. You may have enough volts but not enough amps available.

Also you cleaned the wires but did you also clean the grounds. You may not be completeing circuit.

Sounds like your running off the batteries.
Even an alt 1 1/2 yr old can go bad.
When its running have you tried checking voltage alt is charging at?
Needs to be a min of 13.6. Anything lower and these electronics just dont like it.
And again, get batteries load tested. Bad alt can eat up a good set of batteries.

I've read somewhere too that if the voltage isn't at a minumum number, the computer won't trigger truck to fire. But can't remember where I read it.
