Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

1989 Chevy Silverado C 1500 Truck

Truck has an intermittent starting problem. It starts fine for weeks and then for no reason when I turn the key, nothing but a click. The voltmeter registers about 10 volts and the temp guage buries. The engine does not turn over or start. After any number of times turning the key (clicking it) it starts (sometimes it takes 15 minutes of doing this sometimes a half hour). Last year I had Cheverolet install a new motor, distributer, battery,starter but problem continues making the truck unreliable.
The problem existed before the expense and effort of the new parts. Is it possibly related to ingnition switch, wiring, computer ???? Thanks.

Ctsy fuse when put in makes a clicking under dash as if a short? truck 1998 chevy silverado no lights truck wont start?


What lights ? And won't start how ? The clicking is more then likely a relay or a module of some sort . When you turn the key to the start position does the start engage an spin the motor ? Or nothing happens , a crank no start or no crank no start !

99 chevy silverado running rough and stalling.


the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck

01 Silverado Intermittent no start


If new starter and solinoid doesn't do the trick you might check and see if there is an adjustment on the electrial part of the ignition switch down on the colum. I had one causing a problem one time. It was like you just couldn't get the key to turn quite far enough. but a very minor adjustment on the switch worked. It was like there was an expansion or contraction in the switch because when it was warm weather it was fine but cooler didn't want to work as well. This problem was on a 86 Elcamino so things may be different on the 01 Silverado.
I have an 02 Silverado with 50,000 and no problems yet. Hopefully your new starter and solinoid will do the trick because its kind of a pain messing with ignition switch to try that.
