How many miles on it? Did you check the fuel pressure? Did you look at the spark plugs? When was the last time the plugs were changed? Sounds like it may need a tune up.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. Occasionally when I turn the key to start it nothing happens. I have power, all lights come on. There are no noises or anything. If I use the remote starter, it works.


sounds like the ignition control switch has gone bad. all light will come one but if you turn to start and nothing happen but works with remote starter then the first thing to get checked is the ignition control switch.

Someone tried to steal my truck 2004 silverado my ignition is busted out and now it will not start what do I do


Take your care into the nearest shop and have them install a new ignition. You can also do it yourself but i would strongly recommend that you take it into a shop and have them check out everything. Best of luck.

I changed the fuel filter in my 2004 silverado and now my truck won't start


It would be nice if you were to mention WHICH ENGINE your Silverado is equipped with...Knowing WHICH Silverado MODEL you have would also be nice...1500, 2500, 2500HD, 3500. etc.
If it is a gas engine, all you should have to do is to cycle the ignition key ON for about 5 seconds, then turn the ignition switch OFF and wait about 30 seconds, then repeat this about 3 times. This will allow the fuel pump prime to get the air out of the fuel lines. It should start after this is done.

If your truck is equipped with a diesel engine, the process is much different, let me know if this is the case, and I will post the fuel filter replacement instructions for the diesel.

Periodically, when I turn the key to start my 2004 Silverado, it does nothing. It doesn't make a noise, it just is dead. If I sit in it and turn the key about 50 - 100 times, it will usually start....


Next time check to see if the security light is flashing. If it is then you set off the system.Some models the security is set everytime you leave the vehicle. I believe yours can be changed thru the radio, check your owners manual. If the security is set off, turn the key off, then bck on, let set for ten minutes, you will have to do this three times, do not take the key out or try to start it untill after the third time or you will have to start over. If the security light is not flashing then you have a ignition switch problem. The switch is locate under the dash mounted to the steering column. not to hard to replace.Let me know I can help, If you need it.

Heater only works on passenger side.


there is a motor actuator that moves these doors for hot and cold, two separate ones for either side. the motor unit for drivers side is no good and needs new one. replace this and all will be good.
