Starting problems

Hello,

I searched the forums but didn't find anyone that has had the same problem as me.

This morning I went to start my truck, it cranked and started for a brief second then died. WHen i went to start it again it cranked slowly like a weak battery. I left my gps plugged in since Saturday night and then this morning Tuesday it wouldnt start. My batteries are new from Febuary. I am running the new dark colored cps. My dad put the battery charger on it for a few hours. he went to start it with no luck a few hours later. I came home 6-7 hours later and it started right up. I only drive 11 miles to work I am afraid of running it too much and getting stranded along side the road on my way to work.

Also my truck doesn't have the dp tuner plugged in currently just put a new pcm in it in February.

WHat should I check?

Thanks in advance Clint

Should be OK. You need to let it run a bit longer or go do some joyriding to get the charging system up to full charge.
