SOURCE: 2001 gmc jimmy not starting

Did they do a fuel pressure pressure test to determine that its fuel pump? And if so what was the p.s.i.?It should be around 55 to 60 p.s.i. a few pounds under 55 p.s.i. Pump needs replaced, Your shop should have chk. this when it was there the first time. Did they by chance chg. the fuel filter, that can hinder it from starting too.

SOURCE: how do i bypass security on 98 gmc jimmy 4.3

I experienced this problem, intermittant failure to start. This procedure must be done with the truck RUNNING.

Remove the cover off of your ignition switch. On the top there is a small wire connector that, once the truck is running, should be disconnected. This will turn on the 'SECURITY' light. All will be better, except the security light will be on at all times, much cheaper than replacing the ignition switch, however.

i think if you checked the sparking plugs and map sensors then check your distributer its maybe not delivering the current nedded to perform the spark to some of the cylinders

You may potentially have an serious electrical drain in your car circuits. The drain is slow and continuous, draining your battery charge even if you do a start. Check the cabling and look for load on your battery with a Volt meter to check for any charge drainage. Check this as a precaution before replacing any more parts.

you should check the voltage on your batttery when the car is running. If it reads about 13.5 to 14 volts, your alternator is doing it's job. If it's less, replace the alternator. If the alternator is ok, you have a power drain somewhere, you will need a proffesional to look at it.

Jimmy would not start, voltmeter read 9. After jumping battery, engine started but voltmeter did not go above 9. Battery symbol did not light up. Alternator or battery with high resistance?


sounds either like your alternator is bad, if it still goes dead then i would go with the alternator, other wise a cell or two could be bad or shorted in the battery.

look for a lose wire near your fuel pedal. sounds like some thing is drawing the power and you might be knocking it free when you hit the throttle.
