    Electrical issues , Came out to my 2007 Prerunner with only 14000 miles on it and the battery was dead. I jumped and it barley started. Drove home and turned the lights on and the radio shut off, accelerated on the freeway ramp and the truck shut down and then came back to life.
    Got home turned the truck off and it would not start again , the electric lock would not even work. not even turn over .
    Anyone have issues like this ?

    Pull it out and take it to an Auto parts store. They normally test them for free.

    thanks for the info, i would not think that the alternator would go out in a truck that is not even 3 yrs old and only 14000 miles
