16 LML, for the past week my truck is being flickering lights on and off ( on its own ), I noticed the other morning that it sounded like the battery was weak but no issues, now this morning the truck won’t start, dead batteries, could this be an internal short?

Sounds like something is shorting out causing a draw on your battery and your lights to flicker. Most likely, the same problem causing both. Now, you just have to figure out where it is. Hopefully, the problem will be continuous so you can troubleshoot while it's happening. So hard to find when it jappens just once in a while.

Found the battery on the back is leaking acid next to the pole, I guess time for new batteries, any suggestions, my truck is a 2016, don’t think they will be covered under warranty.

Suggestion...........Replace BOTH, or the old one will draw down the new one and they will both fail.
