Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

2001 GMC Jimmy starts when it wants too.

Hi, I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy and sometimes it won't start. Everything turns over but will not start. I believe it involves the security system. Is there a way to disable the security system to trouble shoot the problem? Has anyone found a cure for this without replacing everything to find out...
Thanks

My jimmy 2001 wont start it does after a few tries wondering is it my security system


Make sure the transmission gear selector is in the Park position, before attempting to start your Jimmy.
I don't believe the problem lies with in your security system.
Make sure the negative and positive cables are firmly attached to your Jimmy's battery, and also the contact's on the starter motor's solenoid, which you should be able to see by lifting up the splash shield on the passenger side, front of your Jimmy.
If none of the solutions above don't work then the problem is probably due to the battery in your Jimmy not having a very high charge level.

97 gmc jimmy cranks but won't start, have replaced everything possible but still won't start, most of the time the brake lights won't work, or the gauges goes crazy. I have changed relays,...


There are two basic reasons for not starting - no spark or no fuel, both of which are controlled by the ECM. You need to check error codes and these items - for the spark, test it at the cylinder 1 sparkplug; for the fuel check the pressure (if too high or low, problem!).

2001 jimmy sle. I just replaced the fuel pump. Fuel guage works. Pump does not. Checked fuel pump relay- its ok. Trucks turns over but won't start. Whats next?


Test for ground and power at your fuel pump connector. Also, the sending units sometimes come without the pump itself wired in. You have to actually splice in connections sometimes. If you get stuck, dropping the tank again and removing the sending unit to inspect could be your next step.

I BOUGHT A GMC JIMMY THAT'S MY PROBLEM! JUNK!


A malfunctioning antitheft system can turn off injectors causing just such a problem. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If this light is present, go to this link for help.

2001 GMC Jimmy with a 4.3L V6 auto trans. Will not turn over


The starter relay may have a bad connection, this is where your battery connects, and a power wire runs to the starter, also these have a ignition wire which is approx 14-16 gauge wire. The relay could be cracked or the contacts inside are going bad. But the other is the neutral safety switch that you mention. I would check these first.

Can't turn key to start car on 2001 jimmy


Have you tried to turn the stearing wheel side to side while turning the key? Sometimes the wheel gets bumped and it locks with the key in the ignition and the added tension won't alow you to turn key unless you turn the wheel from one side to the other.
