There is a relay under the hood that could be the problem, easy enough to test. grab a new one from autozone and stick it in, if it doesnt fix the problem take the new one back as they are somewhat expensive ($20-30)

SOURCE: 2000 silverado wont start

one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

These are unrelated problems. The battery to your truck is probably dead.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy silverado. Truck tries to start but

could be a bad fuel pump...when you first turn on the key in the mornings in a quiet setting you should be able to hear a humming noise coming from your fuel tank it might only last 4 to 5 seconds this is the prime for the fuel rail going to injectors..if you dont hear this, i would take it to a shop to confirm. usually on most cars there is a dedicated fuel prime wire that you can hook up twelve volts to confirm that the pump is working, if the pump is working then it will be a lot easier fix.. because it might only be a fuse or relay that is causing the problem.

you might have a bad connection or bad wires bad ground the first thing you have to do is see if you are getting 12 volts to the thick red wire on the starter then when someone is turning the key the small red or purple wire should get 12 volt

Battery good but when key is turned it want say anytging

Hi, Here's another source of troubleshooting information:
Cut and paste that into your web browser, if clicking on the link doesn't get you there. This gentleman located his problem by confirming the Start Relay in the Fuse Box under the hood was working (clicking, this confirms the PCM is good also) when he turned the ignition key to start his truck. He observed slight sparking and arcing between the Starter Solenoid and the Starter connections and determined them to be corroded and the source of the trouble, resulting in the intermittent starting conditions happening. Once again, Good Luck.

Ever since i got my kia rio 2003, it has ome problem... sometimes it s tarts and sometimes it wont... i can wiggle something under the hood sometimes and it will start... other times it wont do a blessed...

My 01 did the same thing, it was the main relay in the fuse box. Try taking the headlight relay and switching it with the main. If that fixes it might want to keep a few on hand, my most recent relay went out was the c/fan which in turn overheated the engine and the fan melted off the motor.

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.
