    HELP on slt 780

    I have a 97 SLT 780 that I am having an issue with While starting, it will turn over fine the first few times. Then suddenly, it wont trun over anymore. You can hear the relay clicking, but nothing happens. It doesnt matter if its hot or cold. Just seems like if I try to start it more than a few times, it will not turn over anymore.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Hulk ryan.

    Make sure the battery is strong before you do anything else.

    Put a voltmeter on the battery when cranking. What does it read?

    Welcome to the Hulk

    As others have said, start with the battery. Check the voltage using a multi-meter while pressing the start button. The voltage must stay above 10.6 volts while cranking.

    If the voltage sags below 10.6 volts, replace the battery.

    Sounds like a loose connection.
