Question about 2004 Chevrolet Suburban
The truck worked perfect this morning. Just went out and turned on the ignition. All of the normal lights came on and then everything clicked off. Nothing associated with the electrical system works.
If nothing works, I would check the battery cable connections first.
You may need a meter or test light to check the fuses and other circuits to follow the power from the battery.

It could be your neutral safety switch. It could be the starter relay which is located in the fuse panel box. It could be the smaller wire going to the starter could be loose or corroded.

first try to check the fuse of the ignition if it is ok or clean coz some times when it has a corrosion it has the tendency of having a delayed power transmital . if it is fine then check the starter relay if it is good coz it also having a power surge so you have a delayed power to your starte...

Under your hood, on the firewall just above and too the left of your master cylinder is a black terminal that has two studs sticking out of it with about six or seven wires running to it, you may want to make sure that they are all intact. The fact a puff of white smoke came out of those vents is likely an indication of an electrical problem under the hood. This would also explain the starting situation, the instrument lights, etc. The symptoms you are describing say there is a short in your electrical system, more specifically your ignition. the reason the cd will still eject is because that function is run from the direct power source that provides your deck with memory for channels and cd tracks etc. Also, with that puff of white smoke, you probably lost your accessory fuse/ radio fuse. If it got hot enough to smoke because of the short, it definitely popped a 25-30 amp fuse. If the wiring under your hood is original, check to make sure you are not shorting out through the primary cable that goes from your positive battery terminal to the alternator. This cable goes across your intake manifold, thrrough a loop connected to your thermostat housing and then up to the back of the alternator. there maybe a bare spot in the wire cloe to that loop causing the whole mess.

The problem you are describing is common in the type of starter design this truck uses (and all GM cars and trucks), the starter solenoid has heavy copper contacts inside it that energize the starter when the plunger in the starter solenoid is pulled back by the magnetic field, that is the clicking or clunking you hear. To repair this you can either pull the starter out and replace the copper contact feet inside the solenoid on the starter or you can just install a rebuilt starter, which I suggest on cars and trucks with over 75,000 miles on the ticker. The starter is located at the bottom rear of the engine at the transmission bell housing, it is held in by two bolts to the engine block, disconnect the battery before starting any work and mark the wires remove from the starter solenoid, not marking them is the single biggest error you can make, there are only 3 or 4 wires but you can still get them mixed up. Rebuilt starter are very reasonably priced for most V8 engine used in the HD, the one exception is the Diesel. If you have time to wait for a part you can save about 40% over local parts stores by ordering from an Internet parts supplier called www.rockauto.com You can also buy a rebuilt kit here fo rthe solenoid. http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/Nippondenso.html
Below is a picture of the contacts that burn. There of course are two contacts.
