Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

1 Answer

2003 2500HD Chevy truck will not start

The truck has a new battery and all the guages come on in the dash when teh key is turned on. But when the key is turned to start the truck everything goes dead until you let up on the key. I can hear the fule pump kick on, the battery is full charged. Any ideas on what it could be or have you experienced this before. It done this back in November abd I let it set over night and when I tried it the next day it started up and has been running ever since then.

    It has no remote starter and it does not do anything when you try to turn it over, other than loose power to all the dash guages and lights.

    I don't beleive his problem is power related.. but to clarify just a little more when your key is on, do your power windows move normal ? and does your horn and headlights work ?? When you attempt to start after trying leave the key on and see if a "security" lights is flashing on and off (do this while the door is closed)

    Check the Tension on the Belt. If it is even a little loose it will not allow the Battery to Charge. Check the Fuel Pump and Filter also.

All acc power stays on and starter wont stop turning over when battery is connected in my 1997 chevy blazer


I would take a look at the wires down at the starter. He may have the large positive wire shorting to the smaller, trigger, wire. This could potentially cause a back-feed through the whole system.

No power when i turn the key


Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a bad main electrical connection between the battery and the switch. Check all the battery connections and grounds for clean tight connections. Check for power going to the switch.

I changed the battery and still have a no start. Guages light up, then nothing when I turn key to start.


It is important to check teh oil. Low oil means low oil pressure and the car will not start. Try that good luck

Will not start, no dash gauges light except "low gas level"


I have a '99 dodge dakota, 4 cyl, 5 speed manual. While researching a no start problem ran across possible solution to this problem. If no guage lights show when key truned to on position then normally a bad ignition switch. With fully charged battery and working ignition switch guage lights should slight up then go out when ignition in "on" position. Try shaking the key back and forth.
