My 1996 GMC Jimmy won't start. I bypassed the solenoid and it started. What, besides the solenoid, would you suggest checking?

If it started by not using the solenoid, then replacing that unit should be the answer, if nothing else is preventing it from starting, why look for more problems before they ensue??

you say it won`t start unless primed I take it you have to supply a fuel source. if so check fuel pressure as the pump maybe failing.

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

97 gmc jimmy cranks but won't start, have replaced everything possible but still won't start, most of the time the brake lights won't work, or the gauges goes crazy. I have changed relays,...


There are two basic reasons for not starting - no spark or no fuel, both of which are controlled by the ECM. You need to check error codes and these items - for the spark, test it at the cylinder 1 sparkplug; for the fuel check the pressure (if too high or low, problem!).

1996 jimmy wont start, think maybe timing ( died driving down the interstate)is it a timing chain or belt? is it even worth trying to fix


The 1996 Jimmy has a timing chain. I can't tell you whether or not it is worth replacing or junking the vehicle over, that depends on if you are able to replace it yourself, if you can find somebody to do it for a good price, or if you have enough money and have been wanting a new car. If you haven't checked yet you may want to check the solenoid. They tend to get hot and cut the circuitry of the engine off. If it was me i would check and see if it would start cold and if it does try and replace the solenoid, and then if the problem happened again take it to a shop to have the timing checked.

1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift in to first unless it has sat for a cupple hours


You'll have to connect the vehicle to a scanner and read the pressures @ the pressure control solenoid and the 1-2 shift solenoid to narrow down the problem.

1995 Gmc Jimmy Starting Problem


If the engine is using a carburetor, the top gasket maybe leaking evaporating the fuel in the bowl. Check or replace the solenoid switch on the starter body.

Did you check for loose wires at the solenoid? I know they are a buger to get at...
