1999 C5 Won't Start

by Jim

When I turn the ignition on in my 99 C5, there is one click and then no power.....after about a minute or so, I can try again, but with the same result. I have a new battery and run a trickle charger on it all winter. I have tried to reconnect the battery connections and have had no luck. It isn't the normal sound of a bad starter...the succession of clicks and the car simply won't turn over...this seems to be something different. prior to this there was an issue starting in that when the ignition was turned, there would be a delay and somewhat of a labored start. Any suggestions???
