On Blazers, when you turn the key, it pulls the rod up and down. It is by where the tilt is. This rod usually has a bend in it so when you put the new rod in, you have to jiggle it a lot.

SOURCE: i was having problems with

I have worked on quite a few chevys and can tell you what I've found to work with this type of problem. When you replaced the starter, did you tug on the fusable links that connect to the solenoid to see if one of them was burned and loosing power? There are two or three short pieces of fusable link attached to wires that power the fuse block and other electrical circuits at the solenoid / battery cable connection that will stretch when you pull on them if they are bad. If they are, then you won't have power for the fuel pump, relays and other circuits to make the truck start.
If one is bad, cut the wire behind the link connection and put a **** splice and piece of wire on it with a ring terminal,and connect it to the solenoid. Turn on the ignition and listen for the fuel pump to buzz. The fuel pump is controled by the ECM and makes the pump turn on for 3 seconds to prime the system with fuel before starting the engine. One of the wires on the solenoid with a fusable link does this. If this works, your done.
If the truck won't crank when you try to start it, check the "S" terminal for power with a test light while someone turns the key. The "S" terminal on the solenoid comes from the ignition switch, to the neutral/backup / clutch switch to the starter. You'll have to check every point in between these for power to locate the problem. One bad connection or part will keep the starter from getting power to the "S" terminal. You can use a screw driver to test if the starter is working by touching the two terminals together.
While your under the truck, look at all the wires in the harness for any chafing or rubing, I once found a wire that rubbed through and was causing the problem.
Hope this helps, Craig

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

1993 Chevy Suburban. Why does it want to start but doesn't turn?


If your saying the starter motor won't crank? Make sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections are all good. Then check the wiring circuits at the starter for voltage and ground. When testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also check fuel injector pulse. Can you check applicable trouble codes? How long since a tune-up?

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

1993 suburban is not starting and it is not the battery. What could it be?


IF BATTERY CABLES OLD THEY WILL CAUSE POOR GROUND HIGH RESISTANCE IN STARTER CIRCUIT CAUSING STARTER NOT TO CRANK ENGINE.CHECK TO SEE IF DASH LIGHTS AND GAUGES WORK WHEN YOU TURN ON IGNITION SWITCH IF NO CHECK IGNITION FUSES.IF FUSES OKAY IGNITION SWITCH IS OPEN NEED REPLACING.NOW IF BATTERY VOLTAGE IS 12.6 VOLTS, BATTERY CABLES GOOD AND IGNITION SWITCH AND FUSE OKAY. STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER FAULTY.REMOVE STARTER TAKE TO ANY AUTO PARTS STORE THEY WILL TEST STARTER.TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY SO YOU WONT LOCK OUT RADIO.

I would change all three. alittle expensive, but on this old of a vehicle I would not waste time and trouble. if this doesnt work then maybe some ignition problems. But i would guess that battery, starter, alternator, should do the trick
