Dead spot start HELP!!!

Hello I need you guys help. My truck is having a problem were sometimes it will start fine no problems, but say like i drive it somewhere then shut it off and go to turn it back on sometimes it will start but the other times Ill get nothing no turn over or anything. The glow plug relay comes on but theres no start. I have to maybe tug on the battery cables to get it to start but that doesnt work all the time. The starter and starter solenoid are almost two years old. any help would be great

Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere. Sometimes just a simple cleaning of the battery terminals is enough to fix a problem like this. Give everything a good check over and see if you find anything out of the norm.
