Customer Question
Replaced the dead battery...

Replaced the dead battery. the engine locked up and wont crank

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Yes, the voltmeter shows 12 volts. to ensure i used jumper cable with my f350 truck with no result. the instrument panel has a lock sign when i turn ignition on. Wander if i have to find a way to unlock that

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F350?

2008

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No no no. nothing wrong with the f350. I wanted to give extra juice to the chevy to see it would crank. so i used jumper cable to connect the chevy with my f350 to jump chevy

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is it going to cost me?
