It's turning over but wont start.

Asked by Jun 19, 2016 at 10:12 PM about the 1997 GMC Sierra 2500 2 Dr C2500 SL Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I replaced the spider assembly on this thing less than a year ago.  Been driving
it like a dog back and forth from LA to AZ.  The side mount battery bolts were
stripped out and loose this morning so I replaced them and it started right up.  Got
in and drove to store, turned it off for a half hour, and it started up fine.  Drove
about three miles to my next errand. Parked and turned it off.  5 minutes later
wouldn't start.  
Turns over but sounds week.  Feel like the battery is getting drained.  Coil has
spark.  Starter is new(changes 2 months ago).  Have a 1/2 tank fuel.  And now I'm
asking for help online as sit in a Taco Bell parking lot.  Any advice would be greatly
appreciated.

Check the battery cables could be a break in between battery and starter.

Just sounds like an electrical problem, may not have a good connection at the battery yet, or the battery is just weak, try getting a jump start.
