My '98 Chevy truck battery is not starting. I believe, I replaced it four years ago. Unfortunately, the truck has been sitting ALOT this past year --- I've started it up several times - until last week. I hear "clicking" and it doesn't start. From what I've read the clicking is a good thing. My plan : Remove the battery + have it tested. ( This would be save me TIME + Money = I have no jumper cables ) If I was to purchase cables -- I could still have a dead battery issue -- or other electrical issues - so I'll check battery FIRST --- correct ? * So, if the battery is dead........we buy another. However, ( Walmart ) has a fine print that the cost of a new battery - includes the old dead battery being "turned in" at purchase. So ?.........I should hold onto the battery if it tests "dead" -- don't leave it behind ? Sears was where i bought the last battery -- I believe they installed it as I bought it. Might do that again...........but then I'd have to buy jumper cables to get the truck in for the service ( nobody around me has cables, to borrow ). * Just wondering ?...........I'm going about this correctly....right ? * What brand battery has treated you well ?
