Question about 1997 Chevrolet C1500
Replaced the battery and neg. cable and my battery still shows almost dead why
The klunk you hear is the noenoid/bendix engaging but iseems power is lacking to turn the starter and therefore the engine..Some suggestions. Disconnect battery cables. Using small steel brush or a made to order brush, brush posts and cable clamps to remove corrosion. Reconnect and try. Also check the hot battery lead(red) at the starter for itghtness.

First, remove the battery terminals and clean them. Check that the ground wire on the block is tight and clean and the wire at the starter is also good. If you have 12v at the main starter cable and12v at the smaller (trigger) wire next to it with the key turned to the "start" position, it's likely the starter is bad (providing you can turn the engine by hand with key switch off) Make sure that the battery has 12v before starting diagnosis...radio etc. draw far less than the starter does. Even if relatively new, if the charging system isn't working, it will draw down the battery in less than an hour while driving..
