2000 Chevy s10 starting problem

I have a 2000 Chevy s10 that when I try to start all of the electrical comes on but the engine won't crank. The battery, alternater, and starter are all less than a year old. I will have to just sit there for up to ten mins turning the key back and forth untill the truck starts, other times it starts right up. I went through a bid puddle of water about two weeks back but just started having this starting problem 4 days ago. Could it be a bad ignition, or could I have shorted something out? Someone plaese help I can't afford to take it anywhere.

Check the ignition and Engine relay switches located under the hood. Sometimes relays go weak with age and even a bump on the road will shut them off. If you can turn the truck on, take it to Autozone or similar store for a free DTC scan code.

Won,t start after it sits a while


Alternator may be faulty and not charging the battery or you may have a voltage leak to ground which is discharging the battery like a clock or radio light or some other faulty electrical component leaking power.

The alternator is the easiest to check. Does the battery go flat as you drive it? If not its probably not the alternator. You could check it with a current meter when the engine is running.

You could do the same with the battery when the engine is off to see what the current drain is. This might give you an angle on the thing which is draining the battery.

I got a chevy s10 v6 2001 and it wont crank


If it won't crank, then either your battery is dead, your starter relay is bad, bad starter, or dead battery. Lots of people confuse "cranking" with starting. Cranking truns the engine over, so if it won't crank, then you have a starter system problem.

2000 chevy impala won't start but everything comes on


you have a shorted battery (have it tested) or there is a loose connection. A starter motor pulls a large amount of current when it engages, a loose conection or shorted battery will all the voltage away from the dash,lights etc.

You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.

Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day

could be the battery, sometimes all the electrical would stay on but the battery doesnt have enough juice to crank the car over, if not check the alternater.

2003 Chevy S10 won't start


Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.
