Exclamation No Start, No Crank, only a clicking... Ideas?

My truck has been sitting for around 5 days and I want to start it tonight and I got nothing. Tried the battery charger-nothing, Tried the tap on the starter-nothing. The only noise I get out of it when I turn they key to start is a clicking. Sounds to me as if it is the solenoid that is up on the right had side fender behind the battery. All I can think of is it might be the CPS, what will the truck do when the cps fails?

Any ideas??

How about your battery terminal connections and the wire inside of the terminal connector, are they corroded? The charger won't help in that case.

If your batteries are charged up you could do the ole screwdriver across the two large posts on the solenoid trick or use jumper wires to see if it will turn over.

nope, no corroded terminals, they are clean as can be. the batteries are original but they never hesitated before.

Do you have a meter to check your batteries?

Very possible as they are orginals, but if you have a voltmeter or multimeter or a friend does check the voltage really quick to see what you get. Should be 12.4 volts with a fully charged battery.

disconnect your terminals and test with a load tester, if your battery(ies?) are good it can be anything between there and your starter, keep going down the line until you find the problem.
