i believe if you arent getting a full 12V or something from the battereis it wont start bud. put it on a charger, or try new batteries.

haha, yeah right... cant afford to miss work lol, how would i fuel up my truck so i could go to work tomorrow? jk, well i got it started i had it hooked up to a charger for a couple hours and had my brother come and put jumper cables on it at the same time, and it fired up. i didn't think it was the batteries cuz they are about 2 months old and still under the 2 year warranty...but anyways thanks guys and its off to work! im only about 4 hours late...

ok I finally found the problem.... Rwalker you were right...while my batteries tested good, the cables themselves were not carrying the load. I replaced my battery cables and connections and cleaned the battery posts really well. She fired right up with no problems and hasnt "clicked" since.
