I hope you guys have some ideas. I went to use my truck today, I put the key in and tried to start it, it turned over just a short time and then nothing. I have no power at all! The battery was charged, but I put the charger on it any way. I still have nothing. I checked the fuses, but I think these are just for the lights etc. I have no power to anything. The battery has a full charge, I took the cables off and cleaned them anyway, and checked the connections I could get to from under the hood. There had been no signs of any problems before today. Any ideas? Thanks

Thanks for the info, this truck is used as a Farm Truck, so it sits a lot. I found that some mice had chewed through the cloth insulation on the major wire going through the fire wall. I was able to splice the wires and get the truck running again. Because of the pets around the place, I can't use chemicals to control them. I'm not sure how to control them except to use the truck more. Thanks to all.
