Question about 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD
When i turn my key nothing happens no click or crank and my starter is fine and battery. What else could it be my gas gauge dont work or my lights for my gears on my dash
Check fuses I believe there is a main starter relay under the hood in the fuse box. Will it crank in neutral.

SOURCE: When i turn the key
Hello there geddas64,
When it clicks:
- Is it a series of rapid clicks? If so, this usually is indicative of a low battery state. If you have someone to give you a jump, try it again. If the jump works, run it for a while. Stop the engine, then try to restart. If it does the same thing, have both the alternator and the battery checked.
- Is it a single strong CLICK? If so, the problem is either the solenoid or the starter.
The solenoid contacts could be burned.
The starter could be bad.
The connection between the two may be damaged.
If you are comfortable under the truck, pull the starter.
See whats wrong:

Typically the Neutral Safety Switches are located with the gear selector, either in the column or the floor.
Hope this helps,

I have seen many ign switchs. Check to see if the theft doesn't flash when you try to start. It is still posable that the starter is going. Have someone crank the engine. Check for power on the purple wire. If there is power and the it does not crank. Check that the big wire has a soild 12 volts. You can use a screw driver and jump the purple and the big 12v battery at the starter and it should turn on if not replace the starter

Just maybe it's mechanical.Internal to the steering column is an activator rod that manually makes the contact in the ignition switch.It's the cast piece that is molded to the activator rod that breaks.Two things you can do;tilt the steering wheel all the way up and try again to start(the cast piece spreads before it breaks,by tilting you gain a little extra throw on the switch).This will only work a couple times before complete failure of the casting.The other is to move the cover that's just below the tilt lever enough to get to the rod and move it with a pliers to start.If it's mechanical these things do work,I ran my truck with a vice grip for a couple weeks until I could get the parts for the repair,but replacing the broken part is smarter and won't scratch up your column like mine.

try car to car boost-battery charger may not be working correctly or set on low amp charge -interior lights and dash may all light but battery may not be strong enough to energize starter have battery tested if battery good than check for power to the starter if power-- starter may be shot can remove also and have tested at most auto stores free if no power battery -wiring-or connection issue would need to test fuse panel-ignition switch and starter solenoid
