    LOL. I don't think he has that truck anymore. Not for a long time. I'm pretty sure he has a #RAM now.

    I have a #RAM. My Audi has been gone for a long time. 8-10 years. I asked for a name change, but I was told I had to pay. Fuck that.

    Edit: Also, I have this problem recently (on my tractor) battery voltage was good at rest, but dropped to like 5v while cranking. Turned out to be a bad positive cable to the starter. The battery has off-gassed and corroded the wires all the way deep in the middle down the line. Replaced the line, good to go.

    Battery voltage while cranking is about 9v. Now just have to find the motivation to jack the car up and check the starter wires. Maybe after some food!

    My bet is on starter. Either connections or starter itself. Starter troubles are tricky sometimes (for me at least) Good luck buddy!

    My bet is the cable.

    If you take the positive terminal off the end of the cable (if you can?) check for corrosion.

    If you can't take the terminal off... CUT it off. And then strip back about an inch of the cable and check for corrosion. If it's not corroded, slap on a $4 terminal from canadian tire.

    If it is corroded, replace the whole cable. They're like $20

    If it is a poor connection on the starter terminals, would it be the cables fault or the starters? Something to ponder. Either way check the starter and cable.

    Zhao at least has owned a couple of Z32s. I don't see how you have a dog in this fight.
