Does the starter make a "clicking noise" when it wont turn over? check your battery cables at the battery and at the starter solenoid....if it not a connection , then it sounds like a bad starter relay/solenoid

    you will need to check for power to the starter solenoid while turning the key

The hi beams should be on the turn signal switch you should just pull it back towards you and most GM radios have to be turned off then you hold the seek or volume button down and it will start changing the time and some had a real small HOUR and MIN button that had to be pushed with a Pin .

You can get the battery load tested at just about any parts store. I would have this done. If it checks out good, get the charging system tested, and if that is good, you could possibly have a draw draining your battery when it's not running.

2003 5.3L 4x4 GMC Sierra has started being hard


Sounds like a Solenoid might be bad on the starter if it spins freely and a high rate of speed without engaging.

Also, the relay could be bad.

I am ot sure if the fuel filter and pressure regulator would cause this problem.

No code will show with a bad starter or bad relay, I don't believe.

Good luck with this one.

4X4 inop on 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD


I have found that when you are going to engauge 4x4 high, it is best to only be going about 3 miles an hour. Not faster, not stopped. It likes some movement to help it mesh. I've had perfect shifts since I started this. Hope it helps. Wade.

the connections near the front axle that activate the motor to engage the system aren't melted? That's a comon problem for that body style. If there good, sounds like it could be that motor itself. To figure out if it's you motor or transfercase, jack up the rear end, have a friend inside shift into 4 wheel drive, or try to, and put it in gear and apply some gas. If the front driveshaft is turning then it's something with the front end. If not, farther back in the system.
