Truck was running fine. I parked for 1-hour and tried to restart. Dash lights up, clicking sound, w/headlamps that go off quickly, and the engine does not turn over at all--absolutely no cranking.

Is this battery or starter, or something else?

    Thanks. It is a second battery from WalMart, that was replaced in 2009. I've pulled it out and I'm taking it to WM to have it checked and replaced if necessary.

    The starter never showed any signs of trouble. No hesitation, or odd noises. I did recently just replace the headlamp bulbs, and I have no idea if I didn't replace the battery terminal cables correctly. Perhaps that was part of the issue as well.

    I'll let you know what I find.
