Angry Truck is freaking moody...WTF

My truck will not start randomly and then it will start perfect like 9 times and then it will all of a sudden not start. My battery is charged and everything, it's like I'm not getting a spark to start it or something but my spark plugs are flawless.....I'm stuck and very pissed. Anyone have any ideas?

basically the coil that sends out the power to the sparks. if its never been replaced, it could be bad..

x2 on the coils, I had to change both coils on my Sonata, it would throw engine codes when it was raining until I changed them. I never had them giving me problem to start though.

Check the battery terminals for corrosion as well

Another good place too look, especially if your truck is more then 10 yrs old and it has never been changed.

Be more specific when you say "it doesn't start". You need to describe exactly what it does and doesn't do.

Sorry it will crank but it won't ignite the engine. Randomly it will work and won't.
