Dear Ken, the used Ford pickup I just bought from Cars for a Grand will not start unless I jump start it even with a new battery in it.
Any idea of what could be wrong?

Dear Gus, first check the battery cables.
Sometimes these connections can becomecorroded and stop transmitting electric current.
Also, check the alternator belt to see if its worn. If not, then it could be the alternator. The wiring on it may be wrong,
but most likely the alternator gave out.
Make certain that the charge that is being produced by the alternator is actually being fed into the battery.
Hope this helps.
