Take a look at your local dealer, you might get lucky. Itís that time of year, some are willing to move some batteries. That is on sale for $99 CAD

Update,

Replaced the passenger side battery and it starts fine, both remotely and normally with a key in the ignition.
The other battery, on the driver's side seem to be OK, so I'll wait with replacement.

Thank you all for suggestions,
BJ

cangim has a good reputation on FTE.cangim has a good reputation on FTE.cangim has a good reputation on FTE.
Any particular reason to not replace both? My experience has been to always do in pairs.

Good to hear battery though, I was thinking potentially pats not reading the key...

The battery on passenger side had one cell shot (dropping from 12 to 10 Volts under load) the other battery is still OK.
The strange thing is that the truck was starting perfectly fine when using remote start, but needed a few clicks when attempted to start normally, using a key in the ignition. Perhaps the remote start is using the other battery?
After changing the passenger side battery, everything is back to normal.

This happened to me 3 weeks ago. Replaced the drivers side (showing red) pass side was green. Replaced the passenger side now it starts like brand new. Replace both together to save yourself another trip.

Right now you feel good saving money by not replacing both..........
Do yourself a favor replace both.
90 % of the equipment I have worked on over the last 30 years had 2 batteries.
