First check to see if you are getting power to signal wire at starter without the key on if no power to signal wire check to make sure that there is not a short between main battery cable and signal terminal if ok suspect faulty starter solenoid if you have power to signal wire without the key being turned on could be short in wiring or bad ignition switch if this is the case you sould get wiring diagram for proper wires to test

Your power wires that go to the starter are touching together as soon as you plug in the battery the car wants to start. Go under the truck and check that the wires are not touching each other when you tighten the wires they tend to turn and touch its a common mistake.Good Luck

2002 Chevy Tahoe. Car wont Start, Starter will keep on trying to start even with key out.


I'd look at the starter solenoid. It also contains the switch contacts that actually connects the battery to the motor. It may be starting to stick.

I have a chevy tahoe 1999 4 door. The problems started with my alarm system killing my battery. Now my car wont start and the alarm seems to still be on. Do i need a new starter? Or is there something else...


The starter is most likely fine, the problem is most likely with the alarm system. I don't know enough about the alarm system to help you though.

My 1997 chevy tahoe does not start right away.


Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

1999 Chevy Tahoe won't Start. Motor will not turn over.


I'm assuming that by turning over, you mean that the engine fails to turn with the starter . Check your battery for 12v and make sure all connections are clean and secure. If battery has less than 12v charge it and check the charging system after re-starting. Lights and radio do not pull the same amperage as the starter and may not tell you much about battery condition. If you have full battery voltage, check the starter for 12v at the battery connection and the small (trigger wire) for 12v with the key turned to start position. If you have both, likely starter has failed.

99 tahoe with remote start no start problem.


Sounds like you may have a cable issue. You should have two positive cables one supplying power to starter and one powering vehicle. if the starter power wire is not getting good connection but other is then it will only click. check this wire for corrosion inside cable
