Question about 2008 Chevrolet Suburban
Nothing electrical works after being parked for a few minutes or a few hours. NOTHING !!!! Then when I am waiting for a tow, I try it for the 20th plus time and everything starts working for several weeks.
You have a temperature problem. The circuit heats up and shuts down due to high resistance. After it cools down it works fine.
Would like to know the answer to the above questions. Carb is not a problem (I don't think so).
As asked before, what lights come on on the IP?

When you turn the key on, do the warning lights come on the dash ?
Can you turn the headlights on ?
These answers will help narrow down the problem to the main circuits or just the key switch.

OK this is the part where You take out your test light or multimeter (best) and start chasing down the disconnect. begin at the battery and then go right to the starter to begin with, then the accessory side of the ignition switch. Once you covered these items continue from battery again and go item by item till you find the problem. Don't forget you need a good ground, regardless so make sure that is good as well. Only do testing after verifying that your battery is fully charged and can withstand a load test, otherwise all testing is invalid. After finding the problem, check the charging system to make sure it's working.

It sounds like the carburator needs to be rebuilt. If you have to hold it to the floor to get it to start that means it's flooded. So, the carburator is leaking gas into the engine when it's not running. Are getting poor gas mileage too?
