Do you have a voltmeter to test the battery voltage? Has to be over 12.5 volts. Fully charged will be over 13 volts.

nothing wrong with my battery
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Do you have a voltmeter ? What is voltage at the starter solenoid, where the battery cable attaches?
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no i dont have a volt meter
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
battery charger said it was 100% fully charged
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
If you go direct to the starter solenoid, and jump from the battery cable terminal, to the single switch post on same solenoid, will starter spin engine?
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
can you be a little more clear, what does jump from battery cable to single switch post mean?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Take a short piece of insulated wire , and touch the battery cable terminal and the switch terminal at the same time. This is the same connection that the key makes when you turn key to start.

i touched the battery post to the battery cable connector. nothing happened. not even a spark. was that what i was supposed to do?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Battery post on the solenoid (large post) ,to the single small post on solenoid.
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
do you know where the solenoid is? not in my manual
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
The posiitve battery cable goes direct to it. Here is picture of typical solenoid, the large terminal onthe right is the battery cable, and the small post with the black.white wire is switch terminal.
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
thanks for the picture, my selenoid has two blue wires, but i cant reach from there to the battery post. i dont have electrical wire long enough to jump it. is there another way? also when i tried the key today, i noticed that the one bulb came on and the battery light came on. does that make a difference?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Battery post at the solenoid , to the switch wire is only about an inch apart. You don;t have to come from the battery!
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
couldnt find the selenoid, took the part under the steering wheel off but wasnt there either. i havent got a clue any more. but i have a corrosive positive battery cable. could that have something to do with not starting?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
Yes a bad posiitve cable can be the no start problem!

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
my cable has a copper clamp. can i put a metal one on instead. i have that one spare but don't have a copper one. is there a diference between metals?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago
No, either cable end will work. Does not have to be copper.
