2003 Sonoma does not turn-over

Have an 03 SLS Sonoma 4 banger.
Started fine, went to gas station, shut off, never to start again.
All lights come on, Radio, heater fan, fuel pump, etc, hit the key....All lights in dash go out except shift indicator/odometer panel, hear a clicking down under dash and at the big fuse relay under hood and tht's it.

    Even tried jumping it, no luck- still the batter?

    Hey, just tried brand new battery, same issue, so battery is not the answer.

U have lost the battery, check the cables, if they are clean (no corrsion) replace the battery, modern sealed batteries fail like this, crank fine and then puff nothing, happened to at least 5 times over the years and saw it all the time at work.

My 2002 gmc sonoma (extended cab sls) will not start i have changed plugs and wires fuel pump and fuel filter i have done oil change and air filter change. the truck will fire if i give it a spray off...


My engine light in my 2002 GMC Sonoma has been on for the past four weeks. Yesterday I had an oil change done on my truck with a local mechanic. He turned the engine light off, but it came on soon after leaving his shop.
This morning I went to start my truck and there was NO power whatsoever. After repeatedly turning the key, I soon saw a slight movement on the battery display, but no lights would come on. It just seemed like it wasn't getting any power. I changed the battery two years ago, so it should be fine.
Eventually, the truck received full power and started, more less out of no where. It wouldn't hold an idle and would just die if i took my foot off the gas.
Hopefully someone has a solution for me.
Thanks.

Doesnt always start, but lights, radio, AC/heat does come on.


First place to check is the battery. Old ones can push your lights , radio, etc, but the starter is the real load. . Can verify this by using jumper cables to a running vehicle and watch your machine fire right up! The reason mornings are the worst, is the battery has had the most time to discharge, and it is probably cooler outside.
