Question about 1994 GMC Sierra

2 Answers

I left the ignition on overnight and ran the battery down. The next day I charged it and started the truck and it ran fine. I shut it off after 5 minutes or so. Today, I went out to start it and it initially started to fire, then died, and then no fire at all. Its getting fuel, but no spark. I have to think it has something to do with leaving it on all night. Any ideas??

SOURCE: will not start after running, turning over getting fuel and fire

Sometimes when a starter is starting to go bad they will do this.  As they heat up they won't spin fast enough to get the car started.  Take it to an auto parts store and have them test it several times to recreate it being hot and they should be able to let you know if it is good or not.  Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

Run it back to autozone and while running have them test your charging system. It sounds like a low voltage situation. Alternator is probably not putting out enough voltage to run ignition, charge battery and run all accessories at same time,

This is a good indication of a bad ignition control module. The module is located under the coil pack (where all of your spark plug wires come from) and may be testable. Auto Zone says they can't accurately test this part but it is $100 to replace it.

Your battery may be at it's very very end of it's life or is already in the battery heaven and no boosting is going to bring it back. Start with replacing the battery, if the money is tight do what i do and go to the Salvage Yard. The average price there for a good battery is $15,00 to $35.00, depends on the yard. Got mine for $15.00 and it may need to be replaced now, it's been almost 4 years. You want to pick one up that has the highest cold cranking amp (CCA) that you can fit in your car and there is date of service on the battery you want to look for. A bad Battery will cause your engine to stall if it's no longer holding a charge. Start with that and then we can worry about the harder things. Note: if the Volt drops less then 10.5 volts, the ECM will shut down the engine. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted.

Dead battery making a clicking sound


take the battery out of the veh and see if it will charge overnight on a charger, if not then the bat just ran its course I doubt it is 11 years old. Bats last anywhere from 3 to 5 years then they die if it does charge then your alternator needs to be replaced as it charges the battery when you drive, low voltage may cause the buzzing, tellin gyou there is a problem.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
