Get the batt. tested. GM needs lots of cranking amps if you have a bad cell in youre batt. the car wont start and you can destroy the alternator.

Car won't start until jumped


Most likely the battery. Most auto parts stores will check it for free with the hopes that you will buy your replacement from them.

I ran into the problem and it was corrosion on the battery terminals. on the inside against the battery. also check the the terminals for good connection.
