Check voltage at battery, bypass fusible link and check if wires are re-connected and tight at the starter

I have an 93 gmc yukon brand new starter and battery wont start or even click

id make sure the fuses and relays didn't pop for the starter while installing as if it was intstalled wit the battery still connected it could have arched it causing them to blow. then id make sure the battery was good and so was the alternator first thing. second, make sure all ur connections are good ie battery ground as well as wires on the starters solinoid.

Cannot remove fan onto waterpump for 1996 gmc suburban

Clutch fan? If you have the wrench to put on the nut, you have to hit it with a hammer, counter clockwise to get it to break free, once it does you can remove it by hand. Also hit it several times after you install it.

1995 GMC K2500 Suburban, engine wont start, it will click, not a battery problem, lights, windows, windshield wipers will all work when ignition is in off position. Wouldn't start last night, fired right...

Sounds like the starter solenoid or the starter itself - probably needs replacing but check the wiring at the starter first (loose connection, frayed wires, etc.).

99 suburban wont start, power to starter, only clicks. new starter. lights all work dash warnings seat belt alarm etc. owned for four years never had any issues.

If you installed a new starter and your getting battery volts at the starter wire on the soleniod switch while trying to start the engine, then you bought a bad starter, Good luck, Gary

My 1996 gmc Suburban won't turnover. Nothing. Not even a sound. Battery is good.

Go down to starter check that it is getting positive voltage to big stud. If yes, you will need to test little wire. It will get voltage when key is turned to start position. If you get voltage then & still wont start most likely starter is bad.

Not able to reach the wires on my starter on 1996 gmc surburban

Look under the hood on the pass. side and down by the frame you will see the main power wire that runs from the batt. down to the starter.There is a wire clamp that has a 13mm bolt which secures the wire to the frame.Taking this off will allow more slack to pull the starter down further to access the wire.
