Question about Cars & Trucks
Leading causes of not starting on these are a bad ignition switch and a bad starter. Needs electrical diagram and diagnosis.

Try this procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.
·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Gm vehicles have had a ton of problems with the antitheft systems. When will turn the starter off when not functioning properly. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Try putting the car in the "on" or "ACC" position for 10 to 15 minutes then turn car off, then turn car on. Doing this some how resets the security on the car. I had this problem today and someone on here told me to do that and it worked.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.
