When you say it starts up and dies right after, how long does it run? A faulty Passkey code to the security system will allow the truck to start and then run very briefly for about .5-1.5 seconds then die. You can try resetting the Passkey system in the bcm and see if it helps.
Put the key in the ign and turn it all the way forward to the IGNITION position without starting the truck. Now leave to key in this position for at least 12 mins. After 12 mins or so, turn the key back to the OFF/LOCK position then forward again to start the truck.
If it is a security problem, this should take care of it. Some suggest to do this 3 times, but it worked for me the first time.......... dmh

I had similar starting problems with my 99 Tahoe. It turned out to be the anti-theft device was malfunctioning and not recognizing the key so it would turn off the fuel pump and eventually the fuel pump went out too. Since having this replaced ($555.00 with parts and labor at the dealership) I have had no more problems at all with my truck and have actually braved taking it on a 6 hour road trip and had no problems with it leaving me stranded. Since that road trip, I have gone on several more and have full confidence that I will no longer have this be an issue.

Isuzu 4jx1 crank pulley not turning after replaced cylinder head. Is it timing issue? If say so, how to set the timing right with crank and cam shaft?


it sounds like u have something stuck in the engine ,u should be able to turn the shaft manually.so tear it back down and look for something in there or something stuck.dont try to force the engine to turn it over.if it just wont start and does turn over ,set the timing by putting the cylinder on #1 and make sure your timing marks line up.

I have a chevy tahoe 1999 4 door. The problems started with my alarm system killing my battery. Now my car wont start and the alarm seems to still be on. Do i need a new starter? Or is there something else...


The starter is most likely fine, the problem is most likely with the alarm system. I don't know enough about the alarm system to help you though.

What year 350 motors will bolt up in a 1999 4x4 tahoe


I believe in 97 they started the vortec 350 and they ran until 2001 not real sure but any salvage yard will know what years will fit. there are also different engine codes I think they are W and Z that will make alot of difference in the computer.

1999 Continental will not start


Does anti-theft light come on for a sec then turn off when you turn on the key or does it flash with key on?
You said that CEL turns off while cranking,does it come back on if you continue to crank after about 8-10 seconds of cranking?
If it does not then your PCM is not seeing a signal from the crankshaft postion sensor.You can try wiggling the harness at the crankshaft postion sensor and see if it will start.
