could it be something to do with the security anti-theft ???? If it was the anti-theft system you wouldn't even get a clicking sounds . Battery connection or main battery cable to the starter solenoid . Test the circuit using voltage drop .Do you own a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an know how to use it ? Starter Voltage Drop
Wouldn't be the park neutral safety switch either .

2003 Buick won't start. I put a trailer wire package in and it blew a fuse. Ended up taking out the wiring and put it all back as it was. Still won't start. Odometer says error.

You disconnected the battery, and didn't properly reset the anti-theft system. Also, some Body Control Modules need to be programmed with the VIN Number of the vehicle as it is part of the immobilizer system.

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

My car wont start even with a jump it click's a few time's while trying to start it then it does nothing it act's like the battery does when it's dead but i had it checked out and they say it's good what...

If you can borrow a draw test meter from a tool loaner Program, you can check the starter draw. A weak link is the starter Relay which can be jumped with battery cable jumpers.

By using the by-pass method, you are working around a potential problem with the anti-theft system. The anti-theft system reduces battery voltage to your starter to around 7 Volts so that the car can not be stolen.

If you find that the starter turns normally when bypassing the Relay, you may have either a bad starter Relay or the antitheft has activated. Take a Voltage reading on the main wire (between the Relay and starter) to see if it is at 12 Volts when cranking.. If voltage is at 12, then the starter is probably bad if it just clicks.

2004 Deville won't start

You'll either need to get it towed to a shop, or buy a used shop manual to get the testing procedures.
When you turn the key switch to start, there is a dash integral module, a starter relay, and the PCM in the circuit before power gets to the starter motor.
The anti-theft system is supposed to keep the engine from being cranked and started. So you get nothing when you turn the key if the security system is active. No click.

My 2005 Yukon denali won't start, I have replaced the fuses, relays, the starter, the ignition switch, battery, and removed the alternator and had it checked. The truck still will not start without me...

My guess would be the anti theft security system. When this system starts to fail, it turns off the starter from the ignition. The fact that you can hard start it proves this. Read this link for symptoms, info, pictures, and solutions to this problem.

Wouldn't start and I have checked battery, fuel filter, and fuses but it still wont start.

Might be the anti theft disabling your starter. Read up on this link. Read the symptoms part and see if you have the same symptoms. If so, it shows ways to fix this problem.

Hi, if there is an anti- theft system installed in your van, you mght have a faulty computer. I had the same problem and it was due to the anti - theft system. Ihad to replace the computer. If it is the anti- theft system, there would be a tiny red light continueously on in the instrument panel. I hope this helps.
