The most common problem, I think, when changing a battery, is neglecting to clean the terminals off enough with a wire brush. Try toggling the starter switch a few times rapidly, to see if it turns over after cleaning the terminals, again.

The terminals should be shiny and clean, and sometimes, they may appear metallic, but are not clean enough.

Also, do you have current through the thick wire that leads to the starter solenoid?

Can you bypass the ignition switch and turn over the car by supplying current through a thumb switch to the solenoid?

What causes a 1999 chevy silverado to crank for about three seconds then cuts off

When you say cuts off, what do you mean? If the engine stops turning and the starter is still spinning, you have lost teeth on your flywheel. IT might be that the starter is bad or the battery is low too.

Not getting power to the starter

Have you put a code reader in to help you detect the problem.? I know this sounds silly, but does the horn work? Check the manual for battery relay.

My 2500 chey silverodo starts hardfor the first 10

Hi, if it's a diesel engine, they all have to sit for some seconds because of the glow plugs. Some diesel don't send power to the starter until the glow plugs run for the pre-determined amount of time. There are many things that could be causing this. Fuel filter, clogged injectors, fuel pump going bad or bad connection to fuel pump. Try checking out for this things..
Take care

I have a 96 silverado K 2500 with roughly 78k miles on a swapped 5.7L motor.Has been stuck in the driveway for two months for tranny repair. Went to start it today, no power. Charged the battery, gauge...

You need to charge it until the gauge reads 0. If your battery has been dead for that long it could well be ruined and need to be replaced. Be sure to take the charger off before you try to start the engine or you could burn out your charger.

Here we go. Battery is dieing, had the battery checked it's good, had the alternator checked it's good, had the starter checked he said the solenoid bad, replaced starter. Still have the problem. Checked...

RAP stands for Retained Accessory Power. It is the circuit responsible for powering accessories when the key is off. Sounds like something is staying on that shouldn't. Hard to say what though with the information here. if this started happening right after you put in the new radio i would check into that. otherwise start checking accessories like power mirrors,seats, locks and see it something is staying on that shouldnt. i good one to check would be the glove box light or the light under the hood. you can unplug them and then test your draw to see if thats where is was.
