Is the purple wire at the starter solenoid showing power when the key is turned to the start position? Check that first. Also do you have an aftermarket starter interrupt system, look under the dash for a little black plastic case with wires coming out hanging down or taped up there.

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...


Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

multiple symptoms are usually caused by faulty ground connections, in you case probably engine to body strap, use booster cables to establish ground fron battery to engine then engine to body, if it solves the probem then clean all grond connections and battery cables, there should be a strap at the rear of engine to body

My 1986 GMC Sierra Classic K1500 4x4 350 engine has problems starting . The starter hits the flywheel or it meshes but can't turn the flywheel over. The starter is new. Would the battery size have anything...


The starter should have come with shims. You may have to adjust the new starter with the shims, so that the bendix, starter drive, meshes properly with the ring gear.
As long as the battery is fully charged it should turn the engine over.
Please let me know what you find.

Can i turn the flywheel that connects to the starter by hand


You can take out the spark plugs and turn the motor over by the frt at the bolt that holds the harmonic balancer(or lower pulley),with the plugs out it should turn over pretty easy.

My 89 gmc 1500 will not turn over


Did you check your ground wire?If ground is good check to make sure your solenoid wire which is purple usually if it is broke if not get a test light and have someone turn motor over to crank position and check if power there if so more than likely ground problem.If solenoid has no power move to fuses under drivers dash..
