Where is the starter in a 1999 4-door Chevy Blazer and how do I test to find out if it needs to be replaced?

Asked by Jan 11, 2016 at 02:22 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When trying to start my 1999 Blazer it only makes clicking sounds and won't start. I have checked the fuses (seem okay), Charged the battery and tried the lights and wipers - they seem to work fine and the dash lights come on. I would like to check the starter to see if that's the problem. I looked under the hood but I must be blind as I cannot see it. I can't check the alternator until the car turns over. I don't know if it is a 4dr. LS 4WD Suv. or a 4 Dr. LT 4WD Suv.

Have the battery tested at the parts store. Just because it's charged doesn't mean it's good. Or maybe have someone jump you off. Other than that you need a starter. Once off you can take it and have it tested too.
