Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you have a dead battery if the truck is electrically dead. You could have a cable or connection issue, an internal failure in the power distribution center, a wiring issue or something of that nature, but if the lights were staying on and the truck is now electrically dead the battery is the most likely cause.

Do you have jumper cables, a jump box, or a known good battery that could be installed?

The battery cable was cleaned n hooked up 30 minutes later it dtarted. You think it is safe to drive long distance like 800 miles

If it's starting reliably again and the lights are no longer staying on by themselves then it should be safe to dive.
