Ok, new battery, new starter...turn the key, dashboard lights do the off thing
but the starter no longer turns or attempts to turn it seems that power is no
longer going to starter...do starters completely die like that...what else would i
look for ignition wise...something in steering column? fuse, computer thank
Yes, a starter can fail like that. Get a hammer and give it a few whacks. It may get you going. If so, it's the starter. If not, try starting it in neutral. If that gets you going the neutral safety switch is bad. HTH. -Jim
cant get to the starter with hammer well....did not start in neutral. and reaching in and checking the connections i received a zap..so i guess it is the starter because it looks like the solenoid is built in, not sure.
Yes, on GMs the starter solenoid sits on top of the starter. It's the little round gizmo on top with the wire terminals on it. HTH. -Jim
