Question about 1997 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

Vehicle will not start

Own a '97 Chev Silverado - unable to start. Turn the key on and will not turn over, no noise from starter, no interior lights, nothing. Tried a different battery and also tried to boost with the exact same results. Leads me away from believing it was a bad battery - what next?

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.

I have a 97 ford expedition. When I turn the key...nothing...not even a click, is that the solenoid, or is there a starter relay that could be bad.


Do you get anything from the dash (lights, gauges..etc.) when you turn the key or is it completely dead? Check the battery connection and also the starter. Sometimes the battery is on its last leg and will provide enough for lights but won't turn it over.

Try the spare key.
Dodge introduced in-key chip around 97.
The transponder may need to reprogram.

Check the factory window stick to verify is the system is in you vehicle.

03 chev s 10 pickup no start -turn the key get lights stereo fuel pump everything But the starter-have to turn the key back and forth until it finally starts except one time ten minutes of nothing gave up...


I'd start with battery cables. (Hear me out) Lights and other accessories draw minimal amps whereas your starter draws 100s of amps. Your battery cables, especially the bottom ends are exposed to grease and grime which causes resistance. By turning key multiple times you actually heat cables up and they expand making better contact. That would be my first thing to look at. You very well could have bad starter & solenoid but I'd start w/cables. Clean them with a good stiff wire brush.

Car Won't Start


More then likely when you replaced the water pump and starter you might have installed the starter wrong or it's defective if it used to start before the repairs u did but now wont. Also, Why did your car overheat in the first place? might not be a problem with your water pump but perhaps a bad headgasket. Might wanna get that checked.
