Locked up as in seized?

Oil level?
Oil condition?
Fuel Filter?
Open fuel-water separator?
Battery(s) condition?

Open the yellow lever on the back of the fuel filter cannister and let it drain in case there is any water in there. You should find the tube coming from here and put a hose or something on it so you don't make such a mess. I just put cardbpard under mine and then throw it on the burn pile.

Have you changed/checked the fuel filter recently?

Was the CPS replaced with the recall?

Does it turn over? You know crank?

I would charge both batteries and take them out of the formula.

Where are you located?

I don't. Some on here do though. I have never had to buy any yet. My truck had new ones in it when I got it almost three years ago now. I do know that you need to get two at the same time.
