    Ok so this morning my truck was acting funny

    When I turn the key to the on position all my lights work, but when I go to crank it over everything dies ( no power what so ever, my radio and clock even reset ) so I pop the hood and play with the ground and it started up...came home for lunch and it did it again...im hoping its just a bad ground and not the ignition.

    Just wondering if this ever happen to anyones truck?

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Poor battery connections will do that. Get your charging system checked to rule that out. Check wires for corrosion and good connections.
