    Could have gotten a brand new bad battery. But make sure your connections are clean and the cables themselves are in good shape at the connections.

    I had a similar situation on my 2003 Chevy Suburban 2500. It turned out to be three faulty ground connections on the chassis, that would provide
    inadequate grounding for the BCM. The grounds were located at: one in front on the driver's side chassis - behind the bumper - in line with the
    tow hook. The two others were located on the chassis >>drivers side>>just aft of the wheel well at the chassis/body support bracket. After cleaning off
    the rust and coating the contact points with silver paste, the truck would start.
    Good luck and write of your outcome.

    The positive cable may not be making a good connection if you hear the starter click and nothing else that would definately make me suspect the positive that goes to the starter from the junction near the alternator. The grounds could be a prob as well but unless you performed work that required you to remove them it is unlikely that they have become loose on their own.

    decibles is right. the click your hearing is your solenoid going in and out from ur ignition voltage to the small wire. your big positive cable is probably green with corrosion around where the end is crimped on.
