Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
My truck does fine iv had this problem once i had to tow it home and it started the next morning i think my security system is on my security light doesn't work so i cant tell but it disables my starter my gauges work my lights work everything works it just wont crank can someone please help me out with this problem its a 2001 with a 4.8 engine.
Do you have a spare Key ? The key is probably the most likely cause of your problem. Shorting the two main terminals of the starter motor will only make the starter spin, to engage the starter with th fly-wheel you need to short the main lead (usually the outer one) with the solenoid terminal (smaller terminal) However this will not energise th fuel solenoid etc that the security system also disables. You should have your key cloned at your local lock smith retailer before it fails all together. I am an auto-electrician and seen this many a time. good luck.

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.

It sounds like a shorted class2 data line to me. Is the scanner giving you U-codes? (U1000, U1042, etc.) If you are getting U-codes that is your problem.
