You can get new cables at any auto store, just take the old one with you.

Yeah I figured that. What about the solenoid ones? I'm sure they are okay.. that's a new solenoid.. I did have another battery in it. Starters groans.

If you mean the small ones going to the studs, have a look at where the wire goes into the connector...if it is secure and uncorroded just take a small wire brush (I like brass) and clean the ring. Also do the same for the studs on the solenoid.

If the ends are pooched you can put new terminals on the wires, do yourself a favor and use a proper crimping tool and some heatshrink with sealant.

I will definitely be doing that. Stay around on this post. You may come in handy haha.. I just don't know why the starter groaned. Almost like it was hung up or something.. thought bout taking the starter out just to make sure it's okay. Truck hasn't really been driving in like 6 years. I used to drive it as a daily. Then I got another vehicle and stopped driving it. Then one day I went outside the battery was dead. Bought new battery and I used to tap on the solenoid to get it to start... Bought new solenoid and now has this issue . Like I said tho. Say for a while.

Here are a couples of links that might help as well. Get the cables fixed before doing anything else and also do a load test on your battery.

Np and then that will narrow it down to cables/connections.
