Question about 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2 Answers

Tried to start my 02 Silverado and power comes on but no crank.

This has happened once before, just a couple weeks ago. After trying over and over, it finally fired right up. Surely this is just a faulty conection somewhere. Where should I look?

This happened to us also. After many trips to the mechanic and nothing was found due to the fact that it would start once he had it. It finally gave out and would not start for several hours. Statred one more time and then wouldn't again. He found that the starter solenoid was frozen. We replaced the starter and have not had a problem since. The mechanic stated that the solenoid would not show up when running diags on it. I hope that this helps!!!

Could have been stuck injectors or low fuel pressure. If it happens again have fuel pressure check and fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump.

Have you tried cranking it over with all the spark plugs out to clear any water from the cylinders. If yes then I would say the water ruined your starter. I would start there.

02 silverado 2500 duramax- loss of power steering/brakes

I know GM decided to run the brakes and power steering vacumm all off of the power steering pump on some of their trucks. This could really be a big problem because if your power steering quit it would stop supplying your brakes with vacuum to stop the truck. In my experience I would check out the situation with the steering pump. Change it for a new one. Don't take any chances on smashing your truck.

1500HD try to start no sound replaced started 2 weeks ago

Check small wire at starter for 12volts with 12v test light. If no power then...check fuses(blown or MISSING) and move gear shift to neutral and see if it cranks. Could be defective or incorrectly adjusted park neutral switch.

if the car just wine's when starting like it would normally and nothng is happening...Check for fuel, either find the fuel pressure relief valve near the rear of the engine, and depress the valve stem (fuel should hit the roof of hood) if not then its a fuel problem, try this a couple times, but turning the key over, and listen for noise from the gas t ank to see if the pump is actuating.. if you hear the noise while just turn the keyy to acc, not start plz comment back that you hear it , but its still doesnt start....
hope this fix's-ya!
