    Ok so i took my truck up and down a few fire roads yesterday, nothing rough enough to even need 4wd. Now, whenever i try to start my truck i get the clicking noise like a dead battery. I checked the terminal connections for corrosion and made sure they were nice and tight. If i jump start my truck it starts fine, but if it sits for more than a half hour it wont start. Battery is roughly 3 years old. What else could it be? Thanks!

    If your battery is 3 years old, it might be time for a new one. Get it tested.
