Bronco freezes if left out overnight.

i have a 96 bronco 5.0 Eddie Bauer. My truck will not start. Battery is fine. Had it taken to the shop, had it back for almost 2 weeks now. She doesn't start again. She starts to fire, but doesn't turn all the way over. I need some help. I have no idea what's wrong

Check all the connections at the battery and starter. Check the grounds too. Also, was it ok when it left the shop? Maybe the alternator isn't recharging the battery and it took this long to drain the battery? Check those connections too.

What does "battery is fine" mean? Did you have it load tested?

What does "starts to fire but doesn't turn all the way over" mean? Either it turns over or it doesn't.

What did the shop do to it to fix the problem for 2 weeks?

How many miles? Repair history? Has it done anything like this before?

Need LOTS more info to be more helpful.

Pull the battery, and let it sit overnight, then have it tested.
