    same with my 02 suburban. It cranks over but doesn't start. It initially sounds like it wants to start a little but just cranks over and over. now battery is dead. I already added gas from a can. no good, same issue.

    Any ideas???

    I get the same problem. I can usually add a good couple of gallons of gas and it will fire right up. I think it is either a bad sender (ie really out of gas) or a bad/cloged fuel pickup. Havent had the time to look into it. Just keep it above the 1/4 mark and it is fine.

    I had the same problem just this morning which made me late for work. It has 1/2 tank of gas, and has worked perfectly since I bought it a couple weeks ago. First problem I've had with it and not sure what to do. Please help!

Go to the back of the truck near the gas tank and listen for the pump to run while some one turns the key to the on position not Start but on. If you do not hear the pump it is probubly bad.

Nothing electrical works on 2004 Suburban

If nothing works, I would check the battery cable connections first.
You may need a meter or test light to check the fuses and other circuits to follow the power from the battery.

2002 suburban 2500 hesitation backfires intermintly

Check for error codes (DTCs) before going any further. Sounds like a fuel problem (fuel pump, injectors, etc.) which may have been affected by bad gas. Try a good fuel additive (cleaner) as well.

2002 Suburban: is changing a fuel pump on a 02 suburban something...

It can be done, but if you are a beginner and not alot of tools, and a jack and jackstands, I would say no. The tank is rather big, and with gas in it, it's a bit rough to remove. You might seek out a helper with some mechanic experience.

Fuse is the cheapest solution, I'd start there. Then perhaps light bulbs and/or relays.
