Truck died today.. Any ideas?

Had some electrical issues that might have drained my batteries down some. But today as I was leaving school my truck kind of sputtered and died at a stop light then the battery light came on.. Go to start it and fires right up and runs great.. My batteries tested on good besides one only having a 75% charge and the terminals where a little loose. Alternator tested good. So you think it could be that weak charge in one with a mixture of the loose terminals on the same battery that cause it to die?

On a different note i got a haze coming my ccv doghouse.. I should just take it off and make sure the o rings and everything are seated right correct?

Has the CPS been changed? There was a recall on them for the issue of just shutting off the truck. Mine did it and progressively got worse. I would have to pull off the road. Stop, put it in park, restart and then go on my way. Sometimes, I could slip into neutral and restart, but that got farther between. Once it was replaced, I haven't had a problem.

Just a thought.

I have a fuse thats loose under my hood. right behind my drivers side battery there is a box that has two or three large fuses in it and when I hit a large bump sometimes it looses contact and stalls the truck. All but one time I just had to put it in park and restart it. The only time it wouldnt restart I freaked out because I had no power whatsoever not knowing what to do I had to start at the battery and work my way back, finding these fuses, I wiggled one of them and my bell started ringing for the door being open. Good thing I was on a back road with little traffic....


Maybe this is the issue?? Sorry about the long story.
