Answers :

The truck can run without a battery. it is a bad altenater most likely. while most any vehical is running you can disconnect the ground cable safely and it will run, if it stalls out time to rebuild or replace. a battery only is there to make it start then the altenator continues to provide current at 13 amps, to charge the battery and provide more constant amperage.
\015\012Clean battery cables and battery posts. If that does not work you probably need a new battery.
