Hello, my name is Ben. Your starter is down low on the passenger side of the truck, at the right rear of the engine. If you get under the truck on the passenger side and look up, you will see it.

To bypass the other switches, run a wire from the battery to the starter bendix and if it cranks then the problem is in the wiring or the switches you mention.

Did you use the Shim's that come with new starters or check the gap with the little rod that come with the starterto see if the shim's are needed.

I have a 2000 chevy 1500 and i changed out the fly wheel and starter because of grinding noise and i was still having the same problem after i did that so i added shims on the bolts and now it wont start...


If you changed the starter with one that came off of a newer style engine,or if you got an aftermarket starter than the problem is likely to be that the bolts have bottomed out due to a narrower mounting pad on the starter.Remove all the shims and either get shorter bolts or add washer to the ones you have to make it tight to the block,been there,done that!

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it starts by jump starting it. Your battery needs to be replaced. If it turns really slow, the starter needs replacement.
