Hi Bob. May I ask what happened to the old battery? Did the truck start properly before the change?

drove to Walmart when I came out wouldn't start battery was dead
Automotive Expert
Ok, when you try now to start it, what exactly happens? Does everything power on normally?

Replaced the battery everything works but when I turn the key it says low voltage
Automotive Expert
Did you remove the cables off the battery fuse block when you changed out the battery?

NoNot sureLol
Automotive Expert
Ok, my first thought is that the new battery is faulty. As odd as it sounds, I have seen it a few times. Did you try getting a replacement or charging that one?

Where's the reset button at
Automotive Expert
There is no reset button. taking the battery off and waiting 10 minutes is the reset to do. Otherwise we need a shop scanner to see what is happening.

Ok thanks
Automotive Expert
You are welcome. Happy New Year.
