    Well this problem just seems to be getting worst. Yesterday, I had to turn the key about 25 times before the truck would turn over and start. All it was doing was making a click sound. Could it be a dead spot in the starter or something else ?? Any clues ??

    Sounds like the battery to me
  4. could be battery, or a dead spot in the starter also, when this happens again tap the starter with a hammer or have your battery checked even
