Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Silverado that doesn't want to start. It turns over good, but I may have to turn the switch off and on 5 or 6 times before it will start. Once it starts, then it will pretty much start 1st time for the rest of the day. I have a new starter and a new battery installed. Any help will be appreciated.

It sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Its located on the steering column under the dash. You may have to drop the column down to gain access.

2000 chevy silverado v6 vortec engine, died driving, changed fuel pump, plugs wires, etc. and still wont start. ever heard of that


1st, check to see if the fuel pump runs for 3 seconds when you turn the key to run (not start). If it doesn't run, then check the fuel pump fuse & relay in fuse box under hood, if OK, (spray starting fluid in the intake to see if engine fires at all), if no fire then look towards the ignition as the problem. There are 5 things need to start an engine: 1. fuel (delivered & pressure), 2. air, 3. spark (distributor/ignition module or pickup coil), 4. rotation & timing, 5. compression. any of these that are wrong or not there, the engine fails.

Doom & under dash lights will not turn off


Try this, remove the trim that covers the headlight switch, use a flat tip screwdriver and depress the tangs holding the headlight switch in place, pull the headlight switch toward you along with the wires, unplug the headlight switch from the electrical connection, if the dome light goes out, chances are you have a bad headlight switch. Good luck, Gary

I have a 1999 chev silverado 5.3L. Engine will


What is the fuel presure? on a vortech engine the presure needs to maintain 60-66 pounds. It is possible that the fuel filter is restricting the flow of gas or could also be a weak pump... just a another thing to check... hope it helps.
