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 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.

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.

I have an 88 gmc jimmy fullsize, I recently had to replace the alternator. Now the truck wont start and run. I almost starts but then just dies, i got it to run for a second by pushing throttle fully down...


Make sure the battery post are clean ,and shiny,and the terminal ends also.Check and see if the connections on the alternator are good,I assume this is a new alternator?If so,it maybe at fault,You may have to return it,and have them defect it out for another one.

1995 jimmy has started to hesitate to start and progessively getting worse now won't start. would make noise now battery dead


Sounds to me like you need the alternator repaired,low voltage makes the engine work poorly and it will quit when the voltage gets low enough that all the sensors are out of range,by then you don't have enough power in the batteries for a restart.
