Asked by Oct 09, 2013 at 02:05 PM about the 1994 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SL 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It groaned a bit when I started it yesterday to move it into the driveway. When I went out later The starter/solenoid doesn't even click, just a lot of nothing. The battery seems to be fine...lots of juice, everything electrical works. Would the starter cut out like this or should I be looking at the battery cable or something else?
