I did not get a good look at the gauges and lights, is the battery fully charged, and is the security light staying on ?
And have you tried cranking it in neutral ?

SOURCE: set timing 1997 jimmy

Ok that's pretty simple Put cylinder # 1 on TDC= top dead center on the (compressionstroke piston all the way up). Mark on metal part of distributor (with marker) where the number one is on the cap( that's where the number 1 wire plugs in) Then in-plant distributor make sure that rotor point is pointed to #1 on the cap, turn distributor shaft until this is achieved or as close as possible try to center shaft so you can adjust... ****** or advance to fine tune after you in-plant distributor if needed. Contact if you need more help . Good Luck

I also had this problem with mine. There's a main power cable that runs to the battery. The bolt was completely corroded, so there was no connection = no power to start the truck. Check that, it'll cost ya less than 5 bucks to fix.

Check the wires that go to your wheels for the ABS. They are probably bare from stones hitting them, and shorting out the system.

Ran out of gas on a 1997 gmc jimmy and 4 days later it just cut off and than it won,t crank I let it sit for a minute and than it crank but it happen again. What to do?


Cranking and fuel issues are two separate things. Check age of battery and voltage across terminals. Does it always crank as long as you hold the key but not start? If cranking okey,check fuel pressure,key -on,cranking,or if it does start. Check battery cables for corrosion,also inside cables. Do,a voltage drop test on both cables.. Need a meter or just have a shop pick it up and take care of it.

1997 , wont crank


if starter will engage and engine can turn over quickly it should start.

however.. i dont know how you are verifying it has fuel as its a high-pressure FI system.

these systems by GM are VERY finicky and unless within spec precisely it will NOT run. i suspect fuel pump is putting out less than 57# which is min for these.

fuel pump known failure part. if replaced you MUST also replace wire harness at tank as they usually fail internally w/melted wires you cant see through wire sheath. low voltage will KILL the new pump.

also you didnt note engine size and family...
