Chevy blazer problems

I turned the blazer off while in drivethru line up. when i tried to start it she wouldn't start but it was trying to turn over. BCAA sent a tow truck and the driver said fuel pump, he tapped on it and she started up so i was able to get home but she hasn't turned over since and the security light is flashing, something it has never done. any idea's besides it being fuel pump. a friend suggested it may have a security lock and thats why it wont start

Does sound like the fuel pump if it started after tapping on it,but the security light is a different problem. That will also kill the fuel,but if you drove it home,that problem must have started after you got home.Not sure what year it is but if it has a chip in the ign. key,try a different key,if there is no chip run the pass key relearn .
Takes about a half hour,make sure the battery is fully charged and try to kill the daytime running lights if possible,(maybe set the parking brake,some trucks that shuts off the DRL)
Then crank the engine,leave the key on(as if it was running) after about 10 min the security light should go out.When it does turn the key off and crank it again,same deal,key left on for 10 min. till the light goes out. Have to do this 3 times ,should start on the 4th attempt. That will reset the security , but if the pump is bad it still may not start,the security light should be out tho.
When the pumps wear out the brushes you can get them to run once or twice by tapping on the tank,sometimes,but it sounds like a pump as in order.

SOURCE: turns over but wont start

you need to find out if your missing spark at plugs or fuel pressure,you could hear the pump but that doesn't tell you if you have 5psi or 55psi,
you will need a fuel preesure gauge and check that on the fuel rail redd valve if you end up having spark

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Blazer Cranks but wont start...

What about the fuel filter????? Have you changed it out??? If you can spary something like a started fluid, that means it is a fuel problem. My last check, it has to be above 50-psi on the fuel pressure to make it run right. I had 35psi, but whould not get over 30mph or down hill maybe 45mph. Check both filter & pressure, but check pressure with a New fule filter!!!!

You need to check the crank sensor, this controls tthe injector pulse. If it will attempt to start with alternate fuel but not on its own, it sounds like the injectors arent pulsing, so your not getting fuel. Try the crank sensor first.

I have a 1997 chevy blazer. when you turn the key the engine will rotate but no spark.

Sounds like a problem I had. I needed a new fuel pump. A mechanic gave me a way get around it for a few days until I could get it brought it. He told me to turn the key to on (only far enough where the radio comes on) count to like 15 and then turn it back to off and then start it. That seemed to work for a bit and kept me from killing my starter. Once the fuel pump was replaced though, it ran great. I wouldn't suggest doing the "key" thing for an extended period though. Like I said I just did that a few days or so. I hope this helps you.

Have replaced starter, alternator , ignition wiring, neutral safety starter switch, still happens ??????? Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? Not guessing an replacing parts . Not starting ??? How ? when you turn the key to start does the starter motor engage an spin the engine ? Or when you turn the key to start nothing happens ? A no crank no start or a cranks no start . Plus you shoud learn how the system works before trying to diagnose .

Car won't start

I had the same problem it was the fuel pump itself. Have it pressure line tested, if it is lower then 60 psi then its bad. Mine was reading 55psi and would not start my blazer. If i sprayed starter fluid in the throttle body vrrrm start right up. This is because (what I was told) it is a high pressure furl system. also make sure the line you replaced is installed right and is right line

The plug on the fuel pumps are common for being bad and burning up the pumps. But the new pump will come with a new plug.

You can check the manual that came with the Remote starter.
If you do not have one try look it up on line.
You can try call the people that install that kind of remote starter.
Some started do a lot more than start your car and the only way to know is to look at the manual.
You are trying to find out if it is has a ignition kill command.
