Did the engine die while en route - or after you shut it down it would not re-start?

Have you tested the ignition wires for proper voltage?

Thanks!!

Fuel guage goes to empty as i turn key to start engine 2001 gmc jimmy no start


Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch, not the lock cylinder but the switch itself. Electrical power should continue to go to the gauges and to the ignition module even with the key in the Start position.

WillNot start batt., good starter, good all fuzzes good


If the engine is not cranking over, it could be the clutch safety switch
(standard trans), Neutral safety switch (automatic) or ignition switch.

If the engine is cranking but not starting, it is not the starter, battery
or alternator. Check fuel supply, ignition and compression.

Battery not charging. had alt tested and it checked out. batt is brand new only a few hours old. was driving and tranny started shifting up and down, lights on gauges went out, no tail lights. connections...


check the big wire that goes to the fuse box under the hood. there is one that goes from the batery across the radiator shroud. then them. also check the ground from the engine block to the firewall its flat with no coating.

Van will not start. battery alt and starter all checked out fine at o'rileys have no clue as to what to do next


When you turn the key to 'start', nothing happens? The engine will not even rotate? If this is the case, you probably need to replace the electrical ignition switch.

Electrical Problem?


For some reason you lost power. Start at the battery, checking connections, check connections on the engine block(grounds), connections at the starter. What is the repair history on the van? Is this problem intermittent? A faulty ignition switch could cause your problem.

take volt meter check voltage on batt.while truck is idling,voltage should be between 13.5-14.5v,turn headlights on it should stay in that range if it goes below,check for bad wire connection at alt.,if conn. are ok,theres a good chance alt. not charging properly!before doing test make sure batt.is full charge!
