Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

2 Answers

I had my daugher's Jimmy sit for a few month and when I went to start it, I got a few week cranks and nthen nothing. I tried jumping it, but no luck. decided the battery needed to be replaced. Battery in it had cranking amps of 900 and cold cranking amps of 720. Went to Costco to replace battery. The same battery from Costco now only has 875 cranking amps and 700 cold cranking amps. Is this enough?

Yes. try spraying some starting fluid in the air intake or throttle body & see if it starts. it is not a battery problem.

Before you go any further, have the battery checked. If there is an internal problem, it will create all kinds of problems like this.
