ok so i have a 98 jimmy. i went in the car to start and there was no power. i hooked up the jumper cables and then i got some chimes but no kick or turn over. so i just pulled the battery and alternator and took both to autozone. battery was bad it supposed to cca at 680 and was doing 480 i believe puishing 14. and alt just failed the test. when i replace the alter everything should be fine? but couldnt there be a problem with the starter since there was no crank noise. or the starter had no power since the alt and batt were drained ?

Sure the starter is fine, with a bad battery you would be lucky to get a click out of the starter. With the new battery and alternbator everything should fire right up.
