What now?

The new voltage regulator is in. The alternator checked out, OK. The battery was good two weeks ago, and I have kept it on a charger for a while, but the truck wont' start.

It will, one time, right after I pull the battery off of the charger. But then, If I try to restart, it won't without a jumpstart.

I still made a couple of short trips in the neighborhood this weekend. And for the first time, I got stranded. Luckily, only two blocks from home.

DO you have another battery to swap in long enough to confirm that it's the current battery with the problem?

I should do that. I can pull the battery out of the minivan and check.
