Question about 2007 Chevrolet Uplander LS Minivan

1 Answer

Hi My 2007 Chev Uplander wo't start. The starter doesn't even click. The battery seems strong cause the headlights are bright. There's a "Staring Disabled" that comes on, along with a "Change Oil Soon". No other messages come on.My friends found a very loose positive battery terminal, so he cleaned it & re-tightened it right. But still no starter click. I live on a remote community & have no access to a dealer.

Check to make sure that all your ignition wires are getting 12 volts and if they are not check for any blown fuses. Next remove the bypass module and the fuses from the RS and reconnect the starter wire to see if there's something backfeeding from the RS system.

Check to make sure that your not in gear while starting I know this is a no brainer but I thought I'd as anyways to eliminate all possibilities.

Check to make sure that the starter wire at the starter is getting 12 volts as well when cranking. If not leave key in the ON position and hot wire the starter and see if it stays running. If it does, then I'd say the starter relay may have bit the bullet.

"Change Oil Soon" message just is advise for change oil time.

Hope helped.

    Checked all fuses, all ok.

    Removed starter to bench test, runs great.

    Only checked the big feed wire to the starter, it was dirty but has 12V.

    Reinstalled starter but still no click. I suspected the ignition switch or a fusible link, but I don't have the equipment to check it.Would you have any other ideas with this problem??

I have a 2007 Chevy uplander. Yesterday while driving down the road it died on my. I pulled over and it started back up. Went about 10 miles and it died again. We were low in gas but nothing bad. I put...

Clicking noise where ? under the hood in the engine compartment ,the starter , a relay in the fuse box , inside the vehicle etc.... Checking the battery , battery cables and connections , do the headlamps work ,are they bright ?
If the headlamps work and are bright then the battery an connections are Ok . If not bright ,voltage drop test the main battery cables an connections .
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
The starting system on your vehicle is different then this , a tipical starting . Your starter system is more complex ,when you turn the key to the start position it inputs a voltage signal to the BCM - body control module , The BCM then sends a message to the PCM - engine computer on the class 2 serial data communication network that start is requested . The PCM will then supply a ground to the control side of the start relay energizing the relay sending B+ voltage to the starter solenoid .
The vehicle dying on you could be any number of thing's ,and without testing we'd only be guessing . When electronic thing's heat up they tend to act like that , till they cool again .

The battery is strong, but all I get is a clicking sound when trying to start. The engine doesn't even attempt to turn over.

Could be a bad connection to the battery; test by noting if the headlights are bright and stay bright while trying to turn over motor. If not, try tightening battery terminals and ground or get replacement terminals. Could be a bad connection at the solenoid (lump on side of starter motor); tighten connections there. Could be a bad solenoid or starter motor; check shop manual for repair.

Wont start just click.

Even after charging the battery or jumping? Do you know where the starter is located and what it looks like? Round, 3 wires coming out of the top, located under the engine at the rear. Check these wires and make sure they are secure. Located on top of the starter is the selonoid which causes the starter to engage. With the vehicle in park, emergency brake applied, have someone try starting it while you lay underneath. Listen for a clikcking to come from the seloniod. Can put your hand on it and feel the click too. If you get a strong click, but the starter does not engage, you may have a bad starter. Not too hard to change out but take battery cables off 1st! Also change the seloniod if you take the starter off. You do not want to do this twice so easier to make sure both parts are new. GT

Why would the powerlocks on my 2006 Chev Uplander unlock on their own?

Hi Brenda, I believe one of the locking soloniods is sticking. That will cause the problem you are reporting. Regards John

Trouble shoot a 2007 honda crv starter

Take the starter off for testing. If the lights were normally bright, and went dim when key was in cranking position, it means the start circuit is working-battery power is going to the starter, but it won't do anything. The starter motor is probably bad.
Good luck.

Grand Prix wont start

Antitheft failure can cause a "no start" situation. Look for a light in the dash that says security or antitheft. If you see that light, go to this link

Car wont start, doesn't even turn over. battery is good though, boost does not work. think it might be the starter?

Its a good bet. Be sure the battery connections are good too.. Flip on the headlights and then try to start it.. have someone watch the lights.. If they go dark. You have a bad battery or bad connection. If the lights stay bright then you need to look at starter connections/starter/starter solenoid.

2006 Chrysler 300, no start

It is all about troubleshooting. Possible causes are a dead battery. Did someone try to steal it and cut the wrong wires underneath?
The starter solenoid could be bad.
If the headlights stay bright when you try to start the car then it is not the battery. if you hear clicking and the headlights are very dim then it is likely to be the battery. If you have full battery with good cable connections and you get very active clicking but no starts then the solenoid on the starter has burned contacts. if battery is good but no clicking when trying to start then the problem is in the key area or alarm system.
All the areas mentioned above are place to start and troubleshooting steps.
