JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.
Customer: after we hit a bump on the dirt road the truck shut off, would not restart so open the hood, and one of the battery cables had came off. so reattatched it and still cranked over but not start
JA: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

You need to check your fuses as one has blown for the engine. Just open the fuse panel in the cab and under the hood and check them all, there will probably be more than one that blew when the power cable shorted out when loose, please don't forget to rate /accept my service.
