SOURCE: topkick cat 3116 wont start

Check your fusible links; these are small wires molded into the middle of a bigger wire they are usually located up by the battery cables. When they burn they become discolored and softly flexible. Also check your relays too.

97 gmc 2500 with 454 loses head lights and power steering when at slow speed it has a loose belt have been puting dressing on it


since that belt turns the alternator and the power steering pump it may not be a bad idea to figure out why it is loose and get that fixed first.

1994 GMC Topkick not getting power from the fuel pump. Where is the fuel pump relay located?


Before going there, check your INERTIA SWITCH (INTERTIAL CUTOFF SWITCH). A small accident or a sharp bump can cause the cutoff switch to trip. The switch is located adjacent to the passenger side rear shock tower, and there is a pushbutton to reset (on most Topkick tucks). Carbureted Topkick trucks do not have cutoff switches, and some custom trucks have the inertia switch relocated.

1998 gmc c7500 topkick, replaced fuel pump but it's still not cranking and when it does, won't stay cranked. Like it's not getting fuel, any suggestions?


First, use test gauge to check for correct fuel pressure. Bad regulator could be the issue, or badly clogged fuel filter. Next, test ignition module.

I resently did work on my 97 gmc jimmy and took out the battery. when in got done and put the battery back nothing worked. no lights no radio no nothing. now my battery was charged and theres power going...


It's a cable issue. What type of work did you do? Anyway there are two cables coming from positive terminal, one straight to battery one to pdc (fuse block) gm has poor set up there clean retighten not too tight. Or during your work a ground was left loose or undone. Security not the problem. Turn on headlights wiggle either cable till they flicker thats where problem lies.

My 2004 envoy will not start. A couple nights ago the lights on the dash were going crazy on and off. I would lose power on the radio and the dash gauges would lose power (fuel, battery, water) they...


Check the connections at the battery. Loose connections or corroded connections will cause this same symptom.

It is not uncommon for side terminal batteries to also have a problem internally between the mounting button (the place that the cable end bolts to) and the internal connection to the battery.

What sounds like what is happening is the connection is good enough to power up a light load, dash lights, gauges, radio, etc, but when a heavy load is demanded the connection heats up and looses continuity.

I see this issue more on fords but I have seen a fair amount of GM's with this issue.

Battery light stays on in 97 gmc


Battery light probably means low output from the alternator. You can have it checked at your local parts store. Hope this helps!
