Asked by kro1999 Jan 04, 2020 at 09:54 PM about the 1990 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck didnt start. Just clicks. So i jumped it and everything was fine. The
next day im at the dump and it wouldnt start. I had been driving it for an hour
and it was off for 5 minutes. I got another jump and it started. While driving
home I noticed my battery gauge bouncing all over the place. I got home but
now it wont start. It makes one click and then acts dead until i wiggle the wire
and then it does the same.

reattach or better connect and clean whatever wire you are wiggling. Jump the vehicle to get it started. Use a multi-meter to see if the alternator is charging. If the battery is over 3 years old you may consider purchasing a new one.
