    Does this truck have a battery cutoff switch? When was the last time it was replaced? It might be something to look at.

    Ok first check the battery cables and make sure that they are tight.

    The battery switch goes bad over time. It can cause weird things to happen. If you drive in areas that use salt or brine the switch should be changed or eliminated.

    Thank you for your quick reply first, I'll ask you one more question, could you read the initial question one more time, and even after the engine is turned off, the battery power is connected and cranking is possible.It's just that we're out of fuel, and we've checked all the battery connections and tied cable, Is there any other reason?I appreciate it again

    The long cranking could be another issue but withoit seeing the truck I don't want to say it's injectors. You should get it properly diagnosed. That way you get it fixed the first time.

    The battery cut-off switch isn't that expensive and should be easy to replace on your own.
