Thanks! The battery was my first thought but when I noticed the lights so bright figured maybe something else.

also check to make sure the cable's are clean.alot of time's they get pretty coroided and will not make a good contact when you try to pull alot of amp's trying to start it.

do a load test on the battery ?..just because a battery has 12 volts ?..does not mean it has enough cranking amps to crank the starter !. try jumping it from your car/truck ?..if it cranks ?..then your battery is bad ?..if it still does not crank ?..then it's your starter ?..or starter solenoid ?.
