Hello, my name is***** for the question. Can you tell me why you disconnected the battery? What exactly is the truck doing now?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Spark plug is behind starter cable. Didn't want to risk a short. Disconnected ground while changing #1 plug.

With ignition in on position accessories act normal. Radio etc. Battery light is on. When I turn the key to start, clicking from under the hood. Then every thing goes dead. Checked starter relay, its ok. Trickle charging battery now.

Don't bother responding. Figured it out on my own. How do I cancel my service?
