SOURCE: 2003 GMC Duramax Diesel won't start

I see that you had the injectors replaced 20,000 miles ago. I would still check the oil to make sure it is not overfull. The new injectors could be bad. If the oil level is not overfull then get a paper towel and touch the dip stick tip on the paper towel while oil is on the dip stick. If it's only oil it will not spread. If it has diesel in the oil the oil with spread. If this test doesn't show the injectors to be bad then you have three other possibilities. The FICM (fuel injection control module), the fuel pressure regulator, or the injection pump. It's hard to pinpoint what the problem is without running more tests and the only way to run those tests is with the computer the dealership has. Just so you know your injectors are still under warranty until 100,000 miles. Most likely you will have to take it to the dealership to get you truck fixed. I hope this helps you some.

Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

I would check the fuel pump turn key on do not start or turn engine over just until dash lights up and you should hear a grunt sound come from back seat area if you do not hear this grunt your fuel pump is not working.Also if you have a check engine light on you should have your can scaned with a OBD 2 scan tool to retreve and faults the cars computer might be undrer going.

Hi 2005 Isuzu Rodeo Dmax Diesel 110k miles Ireland . Cold start after Glowplug warm up, at key turn does not crank engine at all, just silence. 10 min.'s wait. today no prob with engine crank.


does car have and immobilizer on it (we dont this car in usa)thanks of saying country... VG!
intermittent no cranks!
check battery lugs for the green corrosion.?
to diagnose, no cranks, like this takes using a voltmeter. (at point of failure)
to find out witch path fails.
loss of battery power,(batteries are notorious for this) 12.6vdc rested ,
next time it don't crank, jumper cable crank it over, off a donor car.(like tow trucks do)
or swap in a known good battery form other car.
does it crank now? if yes, suspect a bad battery.

no? then we hot wire the starter solenoid,
no crank now? then bad starter.(intermittent)
or if it cranks now, yes, then a bad key line/
i'd scan the PCM to see if it's the immobilizer, blockage,(bad key errors,etc)
or other issues.
my guess it's an automatic transmission
crank it , in neutral? the operators guide shows how to do that.
if it always starts in neutral, then the Park switch is bad, in trans.(intermittent as all do)
eventually.
or intermittent starter relay.
(diy magic)
rap the relay with end of screw driver, crank now?
wiggle shifter, in park start now?>
crank in neutral, start now?
rap side of starter, with dead blow hammer, gently
like cracking a walnut not breaking rocks.
did those allow cranking?
wiggle those 2 huge battery cables. crank now>?
end magic.

HYUNDAI MATRIX GSI TD WONT START FROM THE KEY, BUT WILL START AND RUNS FINE IF YOU TOW IT A FEW FEET


Maybe your system voltage while cranking is dropping below a certain threshold that your ignition system requires to both spin the starter motor and run other critical system components. Assuming this is the diesel model, you may benefit from measuring voltage while cranking or attempt a jump start (get reserve power from another vehicle that has the same system voltage as yours). The fact that a bump start works, and normal start will not leads to this advice. Good luck.

Its a hot start issue.

Can be related to low fuel pressure or problem with crank sensor.


Also it can be weak battery or starter.

More likely than not, you have the famous broken solder joint(s) at the coil inside the FOB...if that is fine and all solder joints look fine , then you had best get MB, or a good Mercedes Independant garage, to check the EIS and make sure it sees the key

My merc vito 2002 turbo diesel ran out fuel after filling with 20l and trying to start 4 60secs have no sign of any firing of engine have undone small bolt on top of feel filter attempt to start noting no...


Hey, I've got an R reg vito and they're all the bloody same. They're fitted with a "self priming pump" and i've used the quotation marks because they never bloody work! I've ran out of diesel in mine a few times due to a broken guage and it's always the same, depress pedal and for 30 second intervals crank the motor and depress the accelerator halfway. After an hour, multiple stalls and a flat battery it may choose to start. If you run out on a hill, forget it. The last time I ran out before I got pissed off and fixed the fuel guage I did just that and a handy hint if you're stuck on a hill in a vito and out of fuel is to always carry a posi drive screwdriver in your van. If you can bear the taste of diesel, unscrew the rubber hose on the clear fuel line that runs into the fuel filter on the left hand side and ****. The pipe's fitted with a n/r valve so once you taste diesel, reconnect it and crank for a bit and it'll start. If you happen to be really organised, keep a can of brake and clutch cleaner spray in your van and spray into the air intake in small bursts and it'll fire up in a second. The latter mentioned product is a must to have and works ten times better than any can of easy start. Finally when you have time I'd recommend doing what I did and fitting an inline hand primer pump to the clear fuel line which i've tested and removes the need for all of the above messing around. The simple fact is, the vitos self primer is s**t and cannot be relied upon so if you're like me and like to play petrol station poker, a £3.99 ball pump is a must.
