My 2005 Ram Truck decided it doesn't want to start anymore

Customer Question

My 2005 Ram Truck decided it doesn't want to start anymore and the only indicator I have is the Electronic Throttle Control Light is on. Alternator was replaced 3 weeks ago
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: When I turn the key it just makes a clicking noise doesn't fire up
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dodge Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi there. Welcome to our site!

That clicking noise sure points to a dead battery. Can you get somebody to give you a jump-start? We can take it from there afterwards.
