And you are getting spark to the plugs? It could be many things but you need to check to make sure you have fuel pressure which has to have a gauge hooked up to the fuel pressure rail. You have checked all of your fuses correct?

Listen for the fuel pump prime cycle.
Have someone listen back by the gas tank....turn the key after it has been off for at least 10 seconds to run position....you should hear a WHIRRRR for about a second or 2.
If it is silent....you may need a fuel pump.
Next give it a shot of starter fluid...if it starts on that...you indeed have a fuel problem.No start....no spark.
If no start and you did hear a pump cycle....then it's most likely a no spark problem.......a common cause is the crank sensor and/or ignition module.

My jimmy 2001 wont start it does after a few tries wondering is it my security system


Make sure the transmission gear selector is in the Park position, before attempting to start your Jimmy.
I don't believe the problem lies with in your security system.
Make sure the negative and positive cables are firmly attached to your Jimmy's battery, and also the contact's on the starter motor's solenoid, which you should be able to see by lifting up the splash shield on the passenger side, front of your Jimmy.
If none of the solutions above don't work then the problem is probably due to the battery in your Jimmy not having a very high charge level.

Just bought it drove all day now it wont start


If the battery was dead before you got it, then you'll need a new one. Sometimes a battery will only hold a charge for a day or two, or even a few hours before it dies.

Did they do a fuel pressure pressure test to determine that its fuel pump? And if so what was the p.s.i.?It should be around 55 to 60 p.s.i. a few pounds under 55 p.s.i. Pump needs replaced, Your shop should have chk. this when it was there the first time. Did they by chance chg. the fuel filter, that can hinder it from starting too.
