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
