Put a new alternator and battery and serpentine belt on a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3 . It starts at times but then nothing . Not even a click that the starter is getting any power to it . But then if I put a booster on it from a charger and set it to start ... The truck will start ..... I can turn it off and it will start up right away ....

    Check your battery connections.
    Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight.
    Sounds like the ground is loose.
