Hi Im David, when you try to start the truck the red security light stays on?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No, we took radiator out, also have to fix headlight, had truck power on to fix light, turned off. Then tried to turn back on and nothing would come on, red light on solid, couldn't get fab back out, finally few moments ago made several clicking noises and let fab come out, still nothing

when you say fab what are you meaning?

Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

first thing is to check you battery voltage. it has to maintain 12.5 vdc.

Try this press and hold down on the trip reset stick with the key in the off position. Hold it for 3-4 seconds and then turn the key to the on position while holding the button down, wait bout another 3-4 seconds and let go of the stick and watch your truck go way past its redline and hit 120mph in a matter of seconds.
