Did you have power before you replaced the belts?

if you did, then check the replacement belt, of course. Also check all of the connections around where you worked to make sure a wire/connection didnít come loose or is broken.

i assume the truck must be running if youíre getting 14 volts

I'm an idiot

I actually had 2 v on both batteries
I'm assuming it's because the alternator belt was going so not charging :/
I have charged up the batteries now and the glow plug relay isn't working
no noise from starter. But I have dome light etc.
ugh
I'm fairly certain that it's the frozen tundra
one battery is new gotta wait until payday for second new battery
I know I know
I'm supposed to do both but......

mixing a new battery with an old but good battery isn't a good idea but would work for a while.
mixing a crap battery with a new one is a waste of time and money. Wait till you can buy 2 batteries.

You said you have 14 volts, then said 2 volts; which is it?
