Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
When I turn the key on every thing looks fine, but when I try to start the engine everything goes dead. I just replaced the starter. Had the battery checked and have checked both ends of the battery cables to make sure they were tight also checked all fuses all ok. Any sugestions?
It sounds as if the wire from the starter to the ignition switch is shorted out. You may also have a loose or broken connection at the main feed wire at the starter. Check the wires, and your underhood fuses as well. There are also circuit breakers that reset after a short time, put your finger on the outer shell of each circuit breaker and turn the key to start. If one is tripping, you will be able to feel it.
Hope this helps and rate me highly.
