Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

1 Answer

When I went to start my 2004 silverado 1500 crew cab there was no crank no start. The dealer ship mechince said that if the battery dose not have enough power to make the starter work even if you can turn on the lights and the wipers it well not power the starter. He said that there was some thing that kept on turning on with 70 w.a. draw on the system but he could not find out what it was.

    He said that he did pull the fuses and he still could not find the problem. The one thing that the mechanic did say that I would like to find out if it is true or not that the start wont work even if the head lights and the wipers work . I have not work on cars in a while but I remember you could turn the key and crank it until you drain the battery dead.

First, I can't believe a dealership mechanic said that!
The easiest way to check this is to measure the draw on the battery and pull fuses one at a time untill the draw stops and, presto!, you found the item that is draining the battery.

Good luck and hope this helps.

04 silverado will not crank

Could be security. Does the light stay on and/or flashing? Turn the key to run, let sit for ten minutes, turn off for 30 seconds, try to start.This is reset. If you need relearn, do the 10 minutes and 30 seconds 3 times then try to start. Throw a charger on it because if the lights come on it will drain the battery. Any interruption, ad you have to start over. It could be a starter, wiring, or a bad neutral safety switch.

GM has had issues with their security chip shutting down cars and trucks because it thinks it's being stolen. Check with service department at the dealers to see about any recalls.
