What should I do if my Peterbilt wont start?

Let me know if neither one has power in start position. The one that has power when in start position should go to same side of solenoid,small post, as the big wire cable that has power all the time,and other small wire goes to other small post. And if you have power to either one of small wires.

Can a battery have good voltage but no crank?

It has a bad cell.It will read good voltage until put under load then it will drop or it can have good voltage but no cranking amps.

How are the wires connected in a Peterbilt?
