Question about 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche

1 Answer

I have an 04 chevy pickup, yesterday went to start it, would not turn over..nothing. Later tried again and it started right up. noticed that the clock restarted. While driving last night, turned the high beams on, and all the gage lights came on, and it scanned driver 1, like when you first start it, and the clock restarted again. It happened twice lat night, but could not duplicate the problem last night not this morning.

    we have a similar problem but our truck is dead every morning, we had the truck in 4 times including today with no fix, the battery cables have been tighened and the posts cleaned, also we had the battery checked as it is 4 olds, battery is good, the battery shop could see that there is a draw that causes the battery to die, however the local dealership says they still can find the draw or the fix

    I have been having the same problem with my 2004 chevrolet pick in regard to not starting. It has been occurring for about six months. Eventually it starts. It is frustrating and embarrassing (in line at the car wash is embarrassing, picking up mom from the hospital is frustrating)

    We havew same problem. All lights and guages work just not turning starter over. We un hook battery over night and hook back up next moring and it starts.. We drive it all day but we don't turn it off till we get back home. Then it may start again or not, If it doesn't start we un hook battery for over night and hook back up in morning and it will start. Any ideas?

I would start with checking your battery connections and your ground connections. Sounds like you are losing battery voltage.

When you say won't start do you mean it will crank over but not fire off or do you mean it doesn't' turn over at all? We refer to this a "No crank no start" or "Cranks will not start"

First, is this a factory replacement starter from your local toyota dealer? My guess is not.......right? Well in my experience if is not a brand new starter meaning not a rebuild or reman they always give you problems, the click you heard is the solenoid plunger trying to get it going but dirty or worn out contacts that passed inspection some do your self a favor and buy one from your local dealer or at least a good brand but new, usually I take my apart and clean them my self also replace those contacts and plunger and last one just pass 80k miles in service no problems, make sure you tight those bolts and for peace off mine use blue lock tight.

Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.

"04"sorento fuel or not?

replace the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you have a bad fuel injector.
