SOURCE: Truck isn't starting. Starter

you have to have 12.4 volts showing on your battery to even attempt to start your car,, you need to completely charge the battery , ( if you have a walmart near you, they will not only charge it for you, but they run a Load test , which tells how the battery holds up under a Load , such as when trying to start the vehicle,, ) I would venture to say that you have a bad battery ,, it only take one bad cell to make it pretty much worthless, Plus the alternator is being over worked trying to charge it as it runs the car for you after starting,, ( note, never disconnect the battery when the car is running to check to see if the alternator is working, that will result in bad problems , such as computer stoppage) once your sure you have a fully charged, good battery in place, use a volt meter to check ,, start the vehicle and place the meter probe's on the battery terminals,, you should get a reading of no less than 13.5 volts, and should see that up to 14.5 volts on the meter, if you do the alternator is doing its job.

Turn key just a clicking noise. Lights come on. Check engine light on


A weak battery will make the lights come on & energize the solenoid for the starter, but the battery is too weak to make the starter motor turn. Checking the battery would be first, the solenoid second.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. Occasionally when I turn the key to start it nothing happens. I have power, all lights come on. There are no noises or anything. If I use the remote starter, it works.


sounds like the ignition control switch has gone bad. all light will come one but if you turn to start and nothing happen but works with remote starter then the first thing to get checked is the ignition control switch.

Do you know how to test a starter electrical circuit ?
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Starter Voltage Drop
The anti- theft system has nothing to do with the cranking of the starter . Disables fuel injectors so the engine doesn't run .
The theft deterrent system has been incorporated into the body control module (BCM). The theft deterrent is provided in order to prevent the vehicle operation if the correct key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The ignition key turns the lock cylinder. The cylinder rotation produces an analog voltage code in the Passlock™ sensor. This voltage code is received by the BCM. The BCM compares the voltage code to the previously learned voltage code. If the codes match, a class 2 message is sent from the BCM to the powertrain control module (PCM)/vehicle control module (VCM). The message enables the fuel injectors.

2000 silverado,runs good ,but sometimes wont start,lights,radio ect,work,however theres nothing to the starter,if you wait a few hours it starts fine.i brought it to the garage and they replaced the...


You either have a loose connection at the starter, or loose battery terminal.

You'd be surprised how many calls I got about your problem, and all it was, was a loose battery terminal.

Also, tap on the started itself...or the starter relay (under-hood, driver's side...in Electrical Center Box.)

Good-luck.

p.s. there is no sensor or reset for starter

Chevy 1500 electrical problem


Your grounding somewhere. Start looking at the starter. Good luck.

03 silverado turn the key to start but starter will not engage


Interesting problem, on the starter is a "trigger" wire that originates from the ignition (may run to the power distribution center). When the truck is started 12 volts runs down that wire and activates the solinoid on the starter. Put a 12 volt test light on the trigger wire by the starter, have someone hit the key to start, test light should come on, if not chase wire back and look for a break in the wire or replace trigger wire.
