truck died, now it wont start. help!

99 tacoma 3.4l manual

I was backing out of the driveway and when i started to pull forward to leave my truck up and died. No weird sounds or shakes, it just died. I tried to start it back up and nothing happened. No lights, interior or headlights, no clicking from the starter, no annoying ding sounds when the key was in the ignition with the door open. Any ideas on what i should look for first? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like alternator issues, maybe battery. If your alternator dies, the truck will run the battery down very fast and you will then have no power. Start by checking the battery, then go to the next known source of power if it is good, aka, starter. Then if that's good, check alternator
