Question about 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT
Cranks but wont start. while it cranks it sounds as if the starter engages and then disengages and after a while will eventually start i have been having this issue for 6 or seven months now. and sometimes it goes away for a few days and then shows up again. now i tried to jump it the other day cuz it died again but no such luck with it starting. no click nothing. recently it has been clicking like a dead battery a few times and then it will having the cranking issue and start finally after turning and holding key a few times. i cant even put it in neutral to move it out of the way it seems as if its locked up. anybody have any ideas im stumped i replaced the ignition switch a while back and seemed to fix the problem for about a day

SOURCE: 1996 cavalier will not crank
when it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.

I had the same issue this morning...ran yesterday just fine, but this a.m. when I went to start...nothing. No dash lights, no click, nothing except some odd ticking from the dash(?) ~ weird. Anyway, replaced the battery...starts like the champ!
Changing the battery is a bit of a challenge, but I found a GREAT step-by-step on http://www.corvettemagazine.com/2001/october/battery/bat1.asp

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
