Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

I just got a 1997 chevy tahoe 4 door.. It won't turnover or anything. All of the dash lights work and it's not the battery. I have read where something with the anti theft can cause this and y

It ran great the first two days we had it. The previouse owner had a speaker box that they took and the radio, not stock, only played from the tweeter in the passanger door. My fiance got the door speaker to work after tracing the wires the previouse owners had run, and removing an amp. The truck still ran when we got back from running errands, he tackled the speakers on the drivers side door. He started the truck and the speaker still didn't work so he shut off the truck and about an hour later the truck wouldn't start There is a plug with one black and one gray wire going to it but I don't know forsure what it is.

    Thank you, but actually it was the wiring from the after-market anti-theft. I had to trace all of the wires from the inside of the firewall to the ignition and reconnect the split ones from where they cut them to install the anti-theft because it broke the loJack sensors connection when the anti-thefts wiring went bad. Then I had to trace every wire from the ignition wiring harness through the dash to the stereo that the previous owners installed because they couldnt figure out Chevys wiring, not that its hard, and cut wrong wires. So, if anyone else has this problem inform them of the after-market anti-theft and to remove ALL parts of it and be sure to trace EVERY wire that was cut and reattach to same color wire. (Which sometimes the opposite cut end will be wrapped up inside electrical tape that is wrapped around all wires from the different wiring harnesses. And usually, but not always, the cut wires that need to be reconnected will be close to the harnesses and/or relays.)

Try checking the spark plug, and the spark wires, if that doesnt clear things up then try replacing the roter under the distributor cap and check the cap for any corrosen

Sounds like a bad fuel pump.Check the pressure it should be 60-66 with key on engine off. If its the 5.7 or 5.0 engine.The fuel injectors on these motors need at least 52 psi to open the poppet valve inside the injector to allow fuel thru.

2004 chevy tahoe won't turnover or start by being jumped


The ignition start circuit is the path from the ignition key in cranking mode to the solenoid on the starter. The path travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch before it reaches the starter.
This must be the circuit not working on your car.Make sure battery and starter connections are tight.Check for power at the starter solenoid terminal with a testlight when someone turns key to crank. If you have power there, they sold you a defective starter. If you have no power there then it could be the relay or the neutral safety switch.

If you have already checked the relay and fuse then have someone bang on the fuel tank hard while you crank the engine, if it starts then you know you have a bad fuel pump.

Replaced brake switch now won't go out of park 1997 chevy tahoe what do i need to do?


do the brake lights come on now with the new brake switch? Why did you replace the brake switch? It sounds like the switch is not being actuated or does not have a good electrical connection. You cannot move the shifter out of park unless the brake switch indicates the brakes are depressed. Whether or not the brake lights are functioning is a good indicator of whether the switch is working or not.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.
