What were the codes? When it was running, How long? 2 seconds would be security, by would start back up and do the same. Older GM's would kill the starter. Gm's alternators are grounded by the PCM. Fuses are the first to check. You have an 01, so pull the fuses and relays and look. This gets rid of corrosion problems. Also, you have fusible lings on this car. I believe the are down at the starter. Easy to tell. You either have one cable from the battery or you have 5 wires going to it. The other wires all have fusible links .

Testimonial: "the code had something to do with the brakes. I reset and started over. I had it running for over 10 minutes. well fusible links, that's interesting. If it were a fuse this would explain a great deal. I have 3 wires on the starter. checked all fuses and relays. Not security problem. however this thing with the alternator is intermittent. So possible a relay is nuts, but the dash indicators occasionally go nuts too. However I will look into these fusible links."
