Sounds to me like you need the alternator repaired,low voltage makes the engine work poorly and it will quit when the voltage gets low enough that all the sensors are out of range,by then you don't have enough power in the batteries for a restart.

1997 jimmy won't start just clicking noise

It could be:1. the battery is flat, in which case recharge the battery OR jump start the vehicle OR, PROVIDED YOUR CAR DOES NOT HAVE AUTOMATIC GEARS, get somebody to push the car while the driver is in the driving seat and the car is in second gear and the ignition is turned on ---- ; OR2. there is a loose connection from the battery to the starter motor OR a loose connection between the battery and the earth (where the lead from the battery is connected to the body of the car) OR there is dirt at one of these connections which is inhibiting the current. Solution in these cases is to check the connections, clean them and reconnect.Best of luck!

I have a 2000 Jimmy and recently replaced the battery. The truck died about two weeks ago and started with a jump. It died again last night and it won't do anything. It made a clicking noise at first...

It could be, but there are a couple things I would check first. Using a digital multimeter, measure the battery voltage. Normally will be about 12.65 volts DC. If it has at least 11 volts and the car just clicks, check that the battery cables where they screw into the battery are free of corrosion and tight to the battery. If ok, test the voltage at the starter where the red large cable comes from the battery to ground (engine block or bolt attaching starter to engine.) If you have the same voltage as at the battery, and still no start-just clicking, I would take the starter off and to the auto parts store where they can test it for free to see if it needs replaced.
Also, if you get the motor started, test battery voltage red lead to POS on battery and black lead to ground on engine. Should get 13+ volts or your alternator could be bad causing the battery to be bad in the first place.

Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?

If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.
