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?

sounds like a dead battery ---turn on dome light and turn key to start if dome light goes out or dims very low than battery needs boost or replacement--if light not affected check ignition system -key -not worn down(didnt specify yr and vehicle)relays fuses and connections to starter and starter itself-------also have starter checked may be have short
Sounds like a starter issue. If all lights and interior lights and dash lights work than the battery seems ok. If it makes a clicking noise when you turn the key... Then it's a dead spot in the starter solenoid. If you can hit the starter with a hammer while someone tries to start it.... If it starts..... Definitely the starter
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 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.
Vehicle not all the way in Park or Neutral? Bad battery? Bad battery cable? Bad Transmission range selelector switch? Bad Starter? Bad starter relay? Onboard security system disabling start circuit? Locked-up engine?
What is working and what is not? Headlamps? Interior dome lamps? Radio? Warning lamps on dash? Is the "Security" light flashing?
Listen for a click from under the steering column when you turn the key on. If you hear no electrical click then your ignition switch could be bad. If you hear an electrical click the you starter soleniod is bad.
It sounds like the anti theft pass key's have most it's memory and needs to be reset. Try this, it takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to help
