Are you still with the car? If so stop texting and call a friend to come with some gasoline ( 3-5 gal. should be plenty). Put that in the tank and then turn the key on and wait for about 10 sec. then turn key off. Repeat this two mor times. Then try to start the car normaly and drive to the gas station and fill the car up. Oh and stop running out od gas!
I have a 2003 Chevy Avalanche 1500 Z71 4X4. What you describe happened to me (6) times last week. #1, I replaced the ignition switch, $32.00. The issue happened again last night and recorded the code P1514 (Throttle Body performance condition). #2, I cleaned the MAF (mass airflow sensor) and the throttle body. These parts require specific cleaners, which can be purchased at any parts store. Truck runs like new. Best regards, Mike Pyne
You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.
I had a like problem with my 2003 Aztek. I brought it to a dealer and I was told it was the Egnition Switch ($50.00) and the BCM ($250.00), ($100.00) diagnonsis fee, so I bought the 2 part threw a freind for a discount price and put them in myself and had the vehicle towed (88.00) to a different dealer (because it will not start without the BCM being programmed) to get the BCM programmed ($95.00). After programming the car still would not start. BCM and Egnition Switch was not my problem and my car was mis-diagnosed my the first dealer. Now after wasting approx $500.00 the seconfd dealer had found the problem, 2 days later. 3 little wires inside the car under neath the brake pedal what were getting wear spots on the lines and one was fully corroded and broke. My bill at dealer number 2 was $655.00 which included the $88.00 tow and the $95.00 programming fee. If you plan on getting a dealer to help you diagnose your car, don't just stick to one, try two. You may be surprised what you hear.
there is a technical service bulletin to relocate the fuel pump on this vehicle when the transfer pump needs replaced. there is the possibility the transfer pump is going bad on the 2003 now...its not good to run them low or out of fuel
