THE FIX: i was going to clean the clamps and cables and the positive just popped right off of the terminal. the clamp had corroded so bad that there was only a very very thin strip of metal left on what use to be a thick clamp. 3$ later and a bit of my time, i replaced it and the truck started right up. no clicking, no popping and no spending 575$
SCREW THE PROFESSIONALS ( at least this one )
i cant believe that wouldnt of been the first thing they would of checked.
Heck man, Last april I took a 3000 mile trip to Casper Wyoming. It was rough. Got stuck in 6 foot snow drifts, 50 MPH winds...IN APRIL.
