2002 f350 won't start

so lately i have been having intermittent issues with my truck not starting. it turns over but the gauge cluster acts crazy and the starter engages but doesn't start and while the starter is running there is a constant clicking sound under the gauge cluster. i checked all the fuses all were good. if anyone can offer any advice i would appreciate it.

Sounds to me like a bad battery.

I would have them load tested but remember, they need to be disconnected before tested. If tested while hooked up they will likely pass because they are hooked together.

On an '02, have a look at this connector that feeds the fusebox -> POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL CORROSION if your truck is like mine......
