Hello, what engine is in the f150? No power when the key is turned to on? battery acts like its dead? if you jump the battery does the vehicle try to start?

V6 - I'm not in front of it at the moment, yes my employee was having troubles backing it into the driveway and when he turned off the key and then I went to restart and I just flat lined. Everything just went out.After I had cables on it for a bit the lights came back and It made a clicking when when turning the key.. So I thought a little longer and we should be good... But when I tried it a second item not even the light s came, it's completely dead

Ok either the battery has a bad cell and cant hold a charge or there is an issue with the charging system. so need to see if the battery can be recharged and pass a load test then get the truck running and check the charging system performance. Could be a bad altenator draining down the battery
