Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
On the 96 Blazer again,
I got a scrapyard replacement, installed it, and work fine but after about 2 weeks or so the starter would just spin, and spin, etc. This would end up taking about 2 minutes to crank the engine. Maybe once or twice I would turn the ignition and I would get a loud clunk sound and the entire electrical system would just die out. No dash lights - nothing. I would then disconnect the battery, reconnect, and it would fire up (after the waiting period).
Yesterday I went out and tried to start and it went straight to the 'clunk'. After doing my 'battery dance' a few times it just went straight that all to familiar sound of nightmares and a dead electrical system which is its state at present. I can still dis/re-connect the battery but the problem just repeats itself.
Considering this is a junkyard starter, is it possible that this starter is just plain bad? If or if not, can it be possible two starters can go so fast as a matter of coincidence or do I have another problem? And where is the dead electrical system problem coming from? Bear in mind the first starter came with the car and its age was unknown. I'm stump!
Again my sincerest thanks in advance.
Your starter is fine your problem is your timing it is to advanced. Find someone to time it if you dont know how to do it. The electrical is coming from the starter not being able to turn your engine over its straining the starter which is cause a lack of voltage to all your other components
