Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Complete power loss - 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500

The truck has been running well, occasionally when it has been parked I will go to start it and will lose all power to the truck. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it will usually start but everything int he truck is reset (clock, etc.) Last night, I parked the truck at work, went out to go home and it started to turn over and just died, no power at all. The guages started dancing and the instrument panel lights flickered a little, even without a key in the ignition. I waited a while and tried to start again but had no luck. I tried to get a jum, left the cable on for 10+ minutes and never got the truck to turn over, although it did get some power to the lights, etc. At one point, it acted like it was going to start so I gave it a little gas but as soon as I let me foot off of the gas, it died.....truck has a new battery and new battery terminals....any ideas? Thanks!

It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free

There is a light sensor that tells the truck if it is night or day on the dash. Make sure that is it not covered up. If is is not then you may have a bad sensor. It sounds like the sensor is telling the truck that it is night every time the truck is running.

Start the tuck with the park brake on to see if the light come on when it starts. If they do you have a bad relay if not it is most likely that sensor on the dash.

2000 Silverado daytime running lights don't work. bulbs new.


Not saying that you don't know this but the daytime lights are turned off in park.
If that is not your problem, a friend of mine uses the amber bulbs, they last longer.

Truck wont start


You might want to change the fuel filter because bu running out of gas you probably sucked all the crud up from the bottom of the tank. Do this first so you dont damage the engine from all the junk. After this if it does not start try press your gas pedal all the way down and hold it there while starting. do not pump the gas pedal. This should work. Please change the fuel filter first.
