Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

1996 Chevy 1500 will not start...

I had been driving this truck one day and the next it wouldn't start, no power (lights, radio etc.), no audible clicks of any sorts...just a dead truck. I tested the battery, starter, alternator and battery cables and the starter and battery came back bad. So I bought a new batt and starter and when I went to turn the ignition, the power came on but the engine still would not turn over. Now I'm back to square one again, no power at all in the vehicle. I need HELP!!! What can I do?

    OK, I'll try looking around at the rest of those areas. I did check my fuses and they were still looking good. Under the hood an din the instrument panel. Would a faulty relay be the cause as well? Would you know which one it would most probably be? Appreciate the help.

First thing I'd do is check all ground sources/straps for good clean contact at all points, especially from block or frame to firewall area, then check all fuses in panel at drivers side end of dash or wherever located on your particular vehicle, then check all fuses etc, in power distribution box under the hood, for blown or corroded contacts.
