Ok now you know my issue
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Ok I just paid 26 dollars for what
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

when you jump the truck you are providing power to the truck needed to make it run. when the cables are removed you need the alternator to continue to handle the loads to keep the truck alive. in your case it sounds like the alternator is not working. you have a volt gauge on the dash. was it reading low before this happened??

Roy

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No sir the gauge shows charging
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

when you jump it again. see if the gauge is working and showing in the range of 14 volts

friends son came over took a look and said my alternator is good
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
roy its a yucky battery
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

you cannot tell if an alternator is good with a dead battery. you need to charge or replace the battery and then check the charging system.

Roy

ok, time to replace it

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

got the pictures. looks like there was universal battery cable used and thats why the one wire with no home.

connections look dirty especially the last picture. they all need to be cleaned up.

I would still start with a new battery

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
that's what I'm saying it is no longer there I don't know why either
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

that wire with the connector is a ground wire.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
do you think that could be part or all of my problem
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

maybe but I doubt it.

the first thing you need to do is replace the battery. then the charging system needs to be checked the correct way

Roy

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
