1988 Chevy Tahoe Starter going out. Need to replace


Generally starters have 2 or 3 bolts and a thick wire coming from the battery and other miscellaneous connections.

You did not specify a vehicle that was on my list, i.e. 1988 Chevy Tahoe.

However, it may be similar to a Suburban R10:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The following is a general procedure for all trucks covered in this manual, and may vary slightly depending on model and series.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect and tag all wires at the solenoid terminal. NOTE: Reinstall all nuts as soon as they are removed, since the thread sizes are different.
  4. Remove the front bracket from the starter and the mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter. Fig. 1: Starter mounting location — 4.8L engines 84903021.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter mounting location — 4.3L and 5.0L engines 84903022.gif
    Fig. 3: Starter mounts — 5.7L and 7.4L engines 84903023.gif

  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter, front end first, then remove the unit from the truck. To install:
  6. Position the starter and tighten all bolts as follows: R/V Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt: 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm)
    • Nut (gas): 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm)
    C/K Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 35 ft. lbs. (45 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt (diesel): 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 75 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm)
  7. Reconnect all wires. Fig. 4: Disconnect the negative battery cable 87982p25.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the starter retaining bolts 87982p30.jpg
    Fig. 6: Remove the starter from the vehicle 87982p31.jpg

2002 chevy tahoe will not start


it may be the security system but i don't know how to bypass it. most security systems only prevent the original radio from being played if stolen from your car. but wouldn't affect a new radio. you may have to call a local dealer and ask them. the only other thing i can think of is when installing the new radio, you unhooked a wire or cut a wrong wire. good luck

1999 Chevy Tahoe won't Start. Motor will not turn over.


I'm assuming that by turning over, you mean that the engine fails to turn with the starter . Check your battery for 12v and make sure all connections are clean and secure. If battery has less than 12v charge it and check the charging system after re-starting. Lights and radio do not pull the same amperage as the starter and may not tell you much about battery condition. If you have full battery voltage, check the starter for 12v at the battery connection and the small (trigger wire) for 12v with the key turned to start position. If you have both, likely starter has failed.

1993 Ford Explorer battery was stolen and they cut all the cables


which wires ? the ones connected to the battery? or the wiring harness? if it's the battery cables then the large wire is the positive side normally red and the negative side is black and is half the size of the positive wire. The battery will have a + and a - on it so you know that the positive wire is + the larger wire and the smaller is black.

99 tahoe with remote start no start problem.


Sounds like you may have a cable issue. You should have two positive cables one supplying power to starter and one powering vehicle. if the starter power wire is not getting good connection but other is then it will only click. check this wire for corrosion inside cable
