2005 Silverado Won't Start

My 05 Chevy, 3500,4WD (diesel) won't start. It will crank over and act like it wants to but just stops turning over. My door power locks and windows, radio don't work either now. Ran fine before, next morning nothing. Checked my standard fuses and all good. Un-hooked the batt's to try and reset something but no good. Please help with ideas.

Very likely stuck door jamb switch. Replacements are cheap and available at most parts stores.

SOURCE: 2005 colorado pulled fuse for power locks, to stop

This is a common problem, there is either a pinched wire in the harness that is in the door jam or your fuse block is shot, there is a gm service bulletin out on this, I would call your local dealership to find out if it is covered.

2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 diesel (turns over but won't start)

Check and make sure your glow plug controller is putting out voltage to your glow plugs, make sure voltage to your glow plugs is cycling. if it is not, at the front of the engine there is a temperature switch, if this switch is not working your glow plug controller will not work. also make sure you are getting diesel to your injector pump, if you are not, there is a high pressure switch at the back of the engine right behind the glow plug controller, if this switch is not working, your injector pump will not get fuel. also make sure both batteries are fulley charged, if one is low, your diesel will never start. you can jump out these switches, if your truck starts after bypassing, just make sure to replace them. i have a 1993 silverado C3500HD 2WD. good luck!

My 2005 chvey 2500hd diesel truck will not start,

on the back of the engine close to the firewall by the glow plug controller is a high pressure oil switch. if this switch goes out diesel fuel will not reach the injector pump.try pulling the molex and jumping it out with a wire. if it starts. replace the switch. it takes an extra deep socket designed for that switch that can be purchased at any auto supply. good luck!

05 dodge diesel, code 0633, turns over but won,t start, what causes this.

That code will not cause it not to start. You got a fuel problem it sounds like. Try a little, a very little either. The injectors are **** on the common rails, lots of problems.

first check the oil and see if it is full. the injectors are fired by oil pressure so check those things first.
