Starting problem on 99 9-3 ... battery good, no fuse problem, no clicking sound from ignition, no turnover at all. sometimes starts sometimes doesnt for past 2 days... trying to have a clue before taking...

check solenoid and or key switch... try jumping out key switch and solenoid by bypassing with a remote starter button, can buy a cheap one at kragens or autozone... tap with prybar or hammer handle on starter as someone else operates key switch...

1994 GMC Sonoma 2.2L will not start after sarter install

Check the plug in for the crank sensor and the plugs on the ignition module and coil. All of these are real close to the starter. Also did you hook up any ground wires attached near the starter.

95 gmc sonoma just put in new starter now only starts sometimes.

Test your battery if it test good then replace your starter. Most big parts houses will test the battery and starter for you for free.

99 gmc sonoma starts sometimes and sometimes it doesn't

Check and clean your battery cables. Then, trace the wires from your battery to your starter. Make sure they are clean and secure. I believe this will fix your problem. If not, you may have a starter solenoid starting to fail.

Hope this helps and good luck!
