Question about 1995-1997 Chevy 1500 Truck Ignition Starter Alarm Switch
Your starter is slowly dying, have it rebuilt or replace it.
Posted on Jul 09, 2009
General motors starters do a thing called "fielding" When the rear bearing or front bearing wear out, the armature windings actually come in contact with the magnetic field. This gennerally occurs "after" the vehicle is warmed up. It will progress to a point where the starte will not operate at all. Once you've determined the battery and charging system are okay then it's time to replace the starter. Let me know if this is helpful.

90% of electrical problems of not starting, or slow operation one needs to (wear eye protection, and
vinyl, rubber, or latex gloves, wash your hands when your done, have key off, no fuels
open nearby,) Locate car battery. If you are not at all handy with tools , you should
not attempt this work. The two Posts on the battery are always getting dirty and
corroded and slowing or stopping the 12.60 volts Direct Current within a 100% charged
up battery from conducting by clean, tight contact with the inside of the battery cables
clamped/bolted generally to the battery. Cleaning that connection is the lst, and
highest pay-off operation. One BIG check before mechanically cleaning that
battery to cable connection is: IS THE BATTERY AT FULL CHARGE?
A MULTIMETER (ABOUT $10-15 @ SEARS), OR GO SEE IF HEADLIGHTS COME
ON WHEN YOU PULL ON THE LIGHTS, IF LIGHTS LOOK WEAK/DIM
NOT BRIGHT, THEN, HEY YA GOTTA GET THE BATTERY CHARGED-UP
FIRST. The Meter really tells the truth about the batteries STATE-OF-CHARGE.
The quick check of looking to see if lights come on is dependent on the cable
connections being clean, keep that in mind. Don't forget to TURN THE LIGHTS
Be Safe , If your going to unclamp a battery cable and clean it GET AN ADULT,
SOBER, WHO KNOWS HOW TO USE TOOLS , OK? WHY?
THE 12 VOLTS IN THE BATTERY WANTS TO MOVE AT THE SPEED OF
LIGHT TO WHATEVER METAL NEAR IT, OR BROUGHT CLOSE TO IT.
IF YOUR METAL TOOL, FOR ANY MICRO-SPECK OF TIME CREATES
A CONNECTION TO METAL AND ONE IS BATTERY (+) POSITIVE, AND
THE OTHER IS BATTERY (-)NEGATIVE (FOR EXAMPLE THE (+)
POST ON THE BATTERY AND THE CARS METAL PARTS, (PAINTED OR
BARE METAL, NO MATTER), THEN BIG SPARK, TOOL HEATS TO
CHERRY-RED IN SECONDS, WELDS ITSELF ELECTRICALLY IN
WHATEVER POSITION IT CONTACTS THE METAL ONE TOUCHED WITH
ANY PORTION OF THE TOOL. FIRE ENSUES. USE ELECTRICAL
FIRE TYPE FIRE EXTINGUISHER, CALL 911, STAY BACK, GET
KIDS AWAY. GET BACK A CITY-BLOCK. NEVER WORK ON CARS
AGAIN. SOME OF US JUST DON'T LISTEN TO WARNINGS, AND
REALLY SOME KIDS DON 'T KNOW HOW TO READ, ADULTS TOOL
HABLA ESPANOL? SI NO BIEN ENTENDER USO DE HERRAMIENTAS
BUSCAN UN PERSONA CON MUCHO MAS EXPERIENCA ARREGLANDO
automoviles. (can't tell how much of that is misspelled)
BOTTOM LINE; NOT Having ANY idea whom is the audience , and the
BIG TROUBLE a innocent , would be heading for this
explanation stops here. KIDS AND NON-SERIOUS ADULTS
SHOULD HAVE SOMEONE KNOWLEGE-ABLE DO
ANY WORK WITH METAL ANYTHING AROUND AUTO
