One possibility is that the pinion gear of the new starter is jammed in the ring gear, preventing rotation. Sometimes shimming is necessary to get proper alignment.

The starter may be binding on the flywheel/flex plate. Your new starter should have come with shims. Try putting them between the starter and the block one at a time and see if that helps.

SOURCE: battery removal on a 2004 GMC Envoy

The battery is on the right side behind the fuse box. You need a metric set to undo the 3 screws. Theres one that attaches to the body, one to the bar that goes along the top, and theres one on the left side below the vacuum hose and air induction. After you've taken out those three, you should lift the whole thing out(battery and shroud) together. It's hard to take the shroud off before you lift the battery out. After that, you have to pry the shoud off the battery. The two terminals in the back make it hard. Then just go to any auto parts store and they'll give you a new one.

did you try turning the key all the way over while moving the gearshift selector through all positions.Sounds like gearshift linkage may need adjusted.

My 2004 envoy will not start and all the lights come on..but sterring wheel is not locked asnd gear shift will not move


Lots of possibilities, but based on the information you've given, the most likely scenario is that the battery voltage has dropped too low to engage the starter. It may still be strong enough to turn on dash lights, interior lights or even headlights, but those draw far less power than the starter. That is assuming it is not 'turning over' based on you saying it will not start. If it turns over (cranks the engine) normally, but still will not start, then that is different. The gear shift on most vehicles will move if you have the key turned to the on position, but I cannot be positive about a 2004 Envoy, so that part seems a bit odd. The steering wheel should be unlocked when the key is in the on position, so that part is normal. If it is a battery problem, that could have been caused by some other issue (failed alternator, for example), or could have been as simple as lights being left on. I hope that helps.

Check the connections at the battery. Loose connections or corroded connections will cause this same symptom.

It is not uncommon for side terminal batteries to also have a problem internally between the mounting button (the place that the cable end bolts to) and the internal connection to the battery.

What sounds like what is happening is the connection is good enough to power up a light load, dash lights, gauges, radio, etc, but when a heavy load is demanded the connection heats up and looses continuity.

I see this issue more on fords but I have seen a fair amount of GM's with this issue.

Tried to start vehicle and it is just clicking


The clicking sound is the Starter Solenoid making the sound because the Starter is not getting enough amperage to turn (start) the engine over. I would have the battery checked or tested to determine if it is good or not first, if the your vehicle has the "Original" battery that came with your GMC when it was new, it may be time for a new one.

2004 Dodge Neon - Engine died, coasted to stop, and won't restart. Not even a click. Brand new battery, clean terminals, fuses good, starter relay good. Radio and lights work. Power windows work fine.


Does the starter turn the engine over,or not?Or is the engine not running when you turn the ENGINE OVER AND OVER? If there is no starter turning on the car,then check for a start,or main fuse to see if one is blown.Also look for a fusible link burned into.It will look like a wire,but if it is burned into,you can pull the link apart like taffy.It will either be on the starter with the battery cable,or on a positive cable junction near the battery.If I can help,let me know.

Dead battery


The clicking sound you hear when you turn the key is the starter solenoid trying to apply voltage to the starter. Try this, if you can see the starter tap it with a hammer and then try to start the car. this is an emergency make do.

The solenoid is a heavy duty relay that is capable of switching the high current requirements of the starter (up to 70 - 100 amps).

If it's clicking its closing. By the way a new starter will come with a new solenoid

I just replaced my starter in my F-150 today for the exact same problem. Cost $100

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh
