Question about 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

S-10 won't start

Charged battery. lights and warnings, radio work when you turn the key. truck wont start. Tried it in neutral and tried it in park. Thought if I rolled it forward or backwards a little and tried it again it may help, no luck. When I turn the key it makes a snap sound followed by a shhhhhh sound. without turning the key to off if I try it again it just makes the snap sound the second time. It doesn't make any clicking noises or any other noise other than the single snap sound. The engine turns over when I turn the ignition on but it just won't start. I haven't done any troubleshooting as of yet but I can hear the fuel pump come on when I turn the key. My gas gage hasn't worked in a few years so I wondering if the fuel pump finally gave out.

Try replacing the fuel sending unit first. Then check your ignition relays. Are you ruining any codes. because for the most part your truck will tell you whats wrong if your pump is bad it should run a low fuel pressure code and if there is something with the ignition you might run a oxygen sensor code. when you turn it over do you smell gas.

91 Mitsubishi Pajero, wont start get power to the power solenoid when turnig the key. What would be causing this problem?


Check the start fuse first. Then try to start it neutral, not park. It could be the fuse, the safety neutral switch, or the ignition switch. My guess would be the neutral saftey switch.

Sounds like starter motor given your slow to no turnover, I assume your new battery has full charge, if not, check with meter, it may be a defective battery, or another issue with connections, did you clean cable connections when you put in new battery? I assume your engine was running properly before battery change and is not partially seized due to overheating or low oil.

You tried it in neutral but did you take it out of park and force it back into park? Just a suggestion since sometimes the switch that tells it that it is in park needs a bit of a nudge sometimes.

I may not be all the way in park or the safety neutral switch in not working. Did you try and start it in Neutral? Also move your shifter around while the key is engauged and see if it will start.
