Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe
The remote start is an after market unit.
The tahoe did work fine for the last 5 years with this remote.
Now it will only start with a brand new battery fully charged.
Otherwise when you turn the key it only clicks.
Battery voltage is good. Interior lights come on bright.
But even with a brand new battery after one day it will no longer start.
Just clicks when you try to start it..
The clicking of the solenoid is solid.
The starter has a new solenoid also.
There is some normal battery drain for the clock etc.
But otherwise nothing out of the ordinary.
I do not think the battery drain is excessive because;
I can take the battery out of the tahoe and use it to start my
96 K Blazer but in the Tahoe no joy.
I think the problem is in the remote starter.
Somehow it is not allowing full battery voltage to get to the starter.
By the way this problem only occurs when the temp drops below 32F.
I used to have problems like this with dirty bat terminals in older cars.
But in the tahoe this did not help. I must have a bad/dirty connection
somewhere else that only acts up when cold. Somewhere in the remote start system is my guess. Can I bypass this system somehow without removing it?
Sounds like you may have a cable issue. You should have two positive cables one supplying power to starter and one powering vehicle. if the starter power wire is not getting good connection but other is then it will only click. check this wire for corrosion inside cable
