Try to unplug the throttle position sensor and start it. it will go int what they call limp mode and idle so you can essentially limp the car home. if it idles id say it was the throttle position sensor.

SOURCE: wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

SOURCE: From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out

Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

Stuck in park


There is a shift lockout on some models which requires your foot to be on the brake when you want to shift from Park. Often you will find that the brakelights do not work when this part malfunctions.

The troubled part was suppose to insure that you would not have a runaway vehicle when the truck was started. Makers used a combination of ideas to prevent runaways. Most common was a starter interrupt to prevent the engine from cranking unless your foot was on the brake. Then newer models required that your foot be on the brakes to shift the running vehicle.

If you lose the signal, some engines will not crank and others will not shift from Park. The idea being that in Park the vehicle is locked out from moving. Check the upper brake pedal lever for this switch.

it sounds like your shift lever is loose and now your Park/Neutral safety switch is out of position. Try, with foot on brake, holding key in start while you move shift lever slowly from park to low.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

Truck will not start.


sounds like the starter solenoid or starter relay or the "Park-Neutral Safety switch"

Try starting it in neutral, or carefully, hold the key in start while moving the shift lever from park to low gear slowly and - with your foot on the brake and parking brake on.

report back.

There is a shift lever park interlock. Either push the shift lever firmly in to park or turn the key on, put your foot on the brake and pull the shift lever down at least to drive then return it firmly back to drive, you may also rock the truck back and forth while it is in park, then try to start it.
