Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My 01 chevy silverado 1500 won't start MOST of the time.

I have an 01 chevy silverado 1500 (standard) When i turn the key over everything turns but it wont start. it doesnt make any sound. we have tested the starter and that is not it. it has something to do with the ignition. but is there a specific thing i need to replace or just replace the whole thing. and how much am i looking at spending? also my abs light came on the my break light keeps flashing what does this mean?

There is a clutch safety switch under the dash. When you press the clutch it presses the switch. You might try replacing that and see if that fixes your problem. This would cause it not to start and everything would still come on.

    No it would not include the safety switch, unless you specifically asked them to replace it. I would check with your mechanic and make sure.

Something weird on a 2005 chevy Silverado


The next time it acts up try turning the key back just a little and see if everything comes online if it does you will need to replace the igniton switch not the key lock the electric switch that will be located in or on the sterring colum.
