Hello, thanks for writing in about your 1996 GMC Jimmy. There are at least three big fusible link wires that come off the alternator and battery that power everything. You have to check each one to see if they are burned. Also, recheck the wires to the starter to make sure they are hooked up correctly. If the problem persists, you may want to have a certified technician inspect the system in order to diagnose the cause of the power loss and help you move forward with appropriate repairs.
