Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1998 Chevy Blazer

A couple of times, the truck would just stop but could be started without problem. It happened again and with a jump it started up but died again after a few miles. We tried buying a new battery and it sounds like it's just about to turn over but won't. My husband and brother-in-law think it's something electrical. Could that be a reason why it wouldn't turn over?

It sounds to me as though you may have an alternator concern and when it is running all it using is the battery and will die when the battery runs down.I would charge the battery up and start the truck then using a digital volt meter and take a voltage reading at the battery with the lights on and the engine running it should read between 13.1 volts and 15 volts if it doesnt you probably need an alternator.
Let me know

you might want to look at your O2 sensors, they can cause the motor to run lean or rich. also you might have an electrical issue that is tripping your ECM. your electronic control module might be faulty. best solution is to get a trouble code reader and find out what your on board computer has stored. from there you can repair and clear the codes.

Chevy blazer won't start

Well odds are that your blazer is fixed by now. Either way sounds like a bad battery, that's why you need jumps all the time. Why it would die, there are too many possibilties off hand. So what was wrong with it?
