Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you try to start the truck, does it turn over and not start? or does it do nothing?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
When it is being jumped everything comes on but will not turn over. Battery and alternator was checked and work
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

Is the truck equipped with intelligent cruise control?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Not sure what that is
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

It is the type of cruise control that maintains a distance from the car in front of you

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I don't think so.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Did I lose you
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

Sorry, I was working.

Let me get you a image of the front of the truck so you can see if you have this.. Hang on.

Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

See if you have the ICC laser on your truck. That is a image of where its located.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No it does not have that.
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

When you try to start the truck are you getting a rapid clicking or single click when you try to start it?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Rapid
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

Rapid clicking is a sign of a weak battery. How old is the battery and did you try jump starting it to see if it will start?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Battery is 4 months. Battery was tested and passed Tuesday. While being jumped it lights everything but won't turnover.
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

I can tell you now, if you are getting a rapid clicking when you are trying to start the truck, you have either a defective battery with a bad cell. When they have a bad cell they can sometimes pass a load test. Or you have to much resistance in a battery terminal due to corrosion or a after market terminal end.

If it not either of those, the only other thing would be a connection on the starter which is located under the intake. But you are dealing with either one of these issues for your problem.

Rapid clicking is a Battery issue or connection

Single Click is a Starter.

Do you have any more questions on this?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Would that cause all those lights to come on and the 4wd to lock in
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

The truck doesn't start right? Cause all those warning lights will come on with the ignition. It's called bulb check.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The lights came on in the morning and vehicle was stuck in 4wd. Then I disconnected battery and now it won't start
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Changed the battery with one in the garage and the truck starts. Slip, abs, vdm and 4wd still on.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
My father in law died and funeral is tomorrow. This is our mode of transportation for our family. That is why I may seem a little irritated. I apologize.
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

i am sorry for your loss. If you can get the truck to start and all of those warning lights are on it will require a scanner to determine the fault. It could be due to low battery voltage, but the scanner would show if it's a active code or a past code.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
0 Codes found but lights still on. Sorry lights still on are vdc, slip, abs and 4wd. Phone kept auto correcting
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Where are main wiring harness plug located for center console?
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

You need a advanced level scanner to read the ABS system to see what codes you have.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Just drove it and light says 4wd but it went into 2 wd and back to 4wd by itself
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Could it be a fuse?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Is there a manual way to disengage 4wd?
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.

No you can't, cause it's electronically controlled
