i replaced the starter, now the starter acts like the battery is low, interior lights dont turn on, cooling fan comes on when i open the door
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
WElcome. What happened prior to replacing the starter? What happened to the old starter? By the way I am Cam. what is your name?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
owen, the old starter would engage and disengage at the same time, returned it under warranty
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
OK Owen, we need to start at the battery. Can you tell me if you have had it tested at a part store?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the starter?
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
No the battery. Low battery voltage can cause many issues. If that is ok then we need to look at grounds. IF fans are coming on then there is a ground or short somewhere likely around the starter that was compromised when you replaced the starter.
