Angry New 06 died today. What is going on?

Well I just got my truck and it is an 06 with 23k miles. Today it died on me as I just sat at a stop light. And it also almost died today after I got on it a little bit.

It starts right up in the morning though and other times. My battery light comes on when it dies as well, but after my truck starts, it goes off.

It doesn't even turn over when when I try to start it after it dies.

It did this the other day, but started up on its own about 3 minutes later. Today when it died, I got jumped.

Any idea what this could be?

Don't you think these two would impede the starting process, though? Like I said, after it sits for a bit, it starts right up.

Well thats pretty neat, but I'd prefer to have my truck not die at all. Lol. Any idea what 'other' parts may cause a truck to die?

Start with the basics . Remove ,clean and retighten your battery terminals. Clean with the proper tool....even new batteries can have oxide on the posts. When you get the failure,turn the headlights on, hop out and see if they are bright.If not start checking the batteries.
