    (basics) Turn on the head lights, if they are on try to crank the engine while someone watches to see if the headlamps go dim. If they dim, you could have a dead cell in the battery or a serious battery drain with the key off.

My pcm came unplugged without the battery unhooked on a 96 gmc jimmy now wont start


I don't know what you mean by, "I plugged it back up". Did you mean that the harness unplugged or that a wire came out of the plug? Inspect the fuse-box. Look for a blown fuse. You can try disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds. If the stock stereo has the anti-theft feature, remember to disable it first. If a wire did in fact break away then you will need to do more than just push the wire back into place. Please write back with any questions or status, good luck.

2001gmc jimmy wont start


Sounds like dirty corroded battery post connections...remove from battery clean and/or replace the post push in terminals...these can be purchased through your local parts store for under $5. They are push out...push new in also clean inside the battery connections...be sure new posts are tight...all systems will need to reset after the dis-connect...Hope this helps.

My 96 monte carlo wont start and i have changed the alternator and the starter and it still wont turn on


Check your ground cables. All the ground cables you can find. Most of the time there the black ones. Remove them one at a time and with a wire brush, clean them off. clean them really good then put it back on tightly. Mainly the one that goes from your battery to the engine block. i had the same problem.

Will not start


It could be a timing belt issue, or your starter is no good... taking too much power.
