There is a good chance that your ignition keys need to be replaced, you can pick up a replacement ignition lock switch at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instructions to getting the job done.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

2001 chevy blazer turns over but wont run. new fuel pump,new fuel filter,door switch ok,have gas and pressure at manifold, have spark,runs for a second with the help of starting fluid


Try to do the crank relearn:
Ensure that your battery is fully charged before attempting the relearn procedure. Do not leave any battery charger or jumper cables attached to the battery. Close the hood completely. Some applications require that the doors remain closed during the procedure.
96-99 S10
1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start).
Allow the key to return to the all position (same as if the vehicle would have started). The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes.
2. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns oft) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt tostart the vehicle. The vehicle should start on this cycle.
3. Once the vehicle is running, the password relearn is complete.

00 + S10
1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the on position. (same as if the vehicle would have started)
2. The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes.
3. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns off) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes.
5. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start
6. Once the vehicle is running, the password is learned and this completes the cycle.
7. Clear any DTC's with a scan tool if necessary. DTC history will be cleared after 100 ignition cycles.

Thank you for using fixya and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your jimmy running 100%

Truck don't start


When you turn the key to the "run" position, listen and see if you can hear a buzzing noise coming from the under the bed. This is your fuel pump buzzing for 2-3 seconds. If it isnt buzzing, you most likely have a faulty fuel pump. If it does buzz, check the fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve on the fuel line under the hood near the back of the intake manifold. You will need a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure. If it doesnt build 50-60 psi, it will most likely, again, need a fuel pump.

How do we get the check engine oil light off of a 1999 chevy 6 liter


First turn the key to the run position, (not start). Push the gas pedal down to the floor 3 times within five seconds. Turn the key off and then cycle back on and start the truck. The indicator should flash five times and go out.
It may take a few tries.

Car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down


Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
