I had an 84 silverado & a 91 sonoma with the same problems. It was a ground wire. Make sure all body, & frame wires are Attatched, tight & clean of rust & corrosion, no frawed wires. Also make sure battery terminals are clean & tight. Good luck.

SOURCE: my 2000 gmc truck will not start. New starter,

I assume that you mean that the starter will not run. Do you hear the starter solenoid operate (click) when attempting to start? If so, using either a voltmeter or test light, look for 12 volt power at the battery side of the solenoid. If none or it disappears when the starter attempt is made, check the cables from the battery for badly corroded ends. Also, check the grounding cable running from the frame/body over to the engine block for damage. If you hear no click from the solenoid, look for power which should appear at the small terminal of the solenoid when starting. If you get power, replace the solenoid. If no power, then look for a blown fuse, bad relay, bad ignition switch, or any damaged wiring. Make sure the new battery is fully charged. Hope some of this helps!

SOURCE: I have a 2001 GMC sonoma 4.3 v6 that will not turn

Try another starter and also try turning the crank bolt with a ratchet and socket to make sure that the crank isn't frozen in place. Do not leave the keys in the car when doing so. You don't want anyone messing around in the truck when trying that!

I have a 1992 vigor and it ran up till the battery went bad and so I bought a new one and now the car wont start. It just makes a click noise and wont even turn over.


A click noise is from a bad solenoid or starter, not the battery. Have someone check out the solenoid and starter. Quick fix.

1992 gmc jimmy wont start unless i spray with starting fluid after it starts it will start every time untill the next day then i have to spray again ?


Fuel pump issue.--

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

It wont start, just makes a clicking noise. put new battery cables on, new starter, new cylinoid. tried to jump start it, wont jump start either


Clicking noise usually means a bad connection at the battery terminal. It can also be a bad connection at the starter or solenoid.
Re-clean and tighten battery cables,and if that doesn't do it,re-tighten starter connections.Don't overtighten as copper-bronze studs can break easily.If your Ranger is standard shift (4 or 5-speed), don't get under the car or in front of it without the battery cables disconnectede or the shifter in neutral,as any current you inadvertently send thru the starter can engage it and run you over or knock the vehicle off jackstands or blocks. don-ohio

I have a 1992 chevy 1500 p.u truck - it wont start its making a clicking sound but nothing is turning over. its not the battery we put a brand new one in and it still wont work. Any ideas?


The clicking is from your starter solenoid, trying to get the starter working. If your electrical connections to the starter are tight and clean, then the starter needs removing and testing.

2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...


Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

I have a 1989 GMC Sierra that won't start. It makes a clicking sound when key is turned. Is it the starter? and what does the starter look like?


well the first thing to do is check the voltage at battery, if battery is bad it will make a clicking sound when trying to start vehicle. the voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 volts all things off. with it running at battery should be at least 14.2-14.7 if alternator is ok! if all checks out to be ok, then its either a bad solinoid on starter or the starter itself. good-day ! any auto store will check the voltage for free. just tell them you want to check battery and alt, output.

Started with head gasket problem, tried to flush system..


You more then likely have more then one issue. You can pull the plugs to see if the engine is hydra locked, It sounds like you lost power so check that the battery is still fully charged, check the connections at the battery, engine block, and starter. Sounds like something just got wet or it was a coincidence. I never suggest to anyone, the use of stop leak.
