Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

1999 Chevy Blazer will not start sometimes. Turn the ignition key and nothing, no starter noise or clicking. Can get it to start most times by turning the key to Run, then then shifting the automatic transmission into neutral then Park a couple of times, trying to start in each position. Not sure if it may be the ignition switch, the starter, or an interlock switch for the transmission postion. The altenator checks OK and has a new battery, 4 weeks old. Any ideas what to check first?

2001 chevy blazer randomly won't start....no click or anything.....then will randomly will start


See if it has the double stacked positive cable ends at the battery, Sometimes one won't make a good connection, 1 goes to the starter the other feeds the rest of the electrical system, Also check make sure your ignition switch isn't going bad, NOT the key and tumbler but the electrical switch itself...Make sure your starter wiring is tight also..

Your ignition switch is going bad. The strange noise is the starter remaining engaged and locked to the flywheel. Your best bet is to have the starter tested at your local auto parts store, to deduce that it is not, in fact, your starter.

if an ignition switch fails, sometimes you can jiggle the key and it will start right up. its very hard to tell. but if you can start it by bypassing the ignition switch, then its the switch itself. go to this site for more detailed info--- aa1car.com/library/1999/cm119948.htm---this page should help. click on top link.

1999 Chevy Blazer Engine will not crank over. All


try turning the key over to the start position. then take a long screwdriver and touch it across the terminals on the starter. this should start your vehicle. if the sarter doesnt turn when you do this,then you have the starter locked up,and yo will have to take it off and install some shims under the bolts.if the starter is trying to turn and the lywheel isnt urning...then you have a locked up engine.

Problem with a 2000 chevy blazer not starting


Have replaced starter, alternator , ignition wiring, neutral safety starter switch, still happens ??????? Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? Not guessing an replacing parts . Not starting ??? How ? when you turn the key to start does the starter motor engage an spin the engine ? Or when you turn the key to start nothing happens ? A no crank no start or a cranks no start . Plus you shoud learn how the system works before trying to diagnose .

96 chevy blazer just clicks and won't turn over.


Hi!
Check the main cable going from the battery to starter rellay.
This could be loose or there is corrosion on the connectors, clean this with a spray like WD40...
To find this cable start from the starter motor and work your way back to rellay and then to battery...
If not.
Check with multimeter if the rellay is fine.
else the starter motor is jammed... it will have to be opened and serviced..

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

My 97 Chevy blazer has a Immobilizer ; doesn't start.


I agree with gasitjr.
I own a 98 blazer. When you try to turn over the engine. Does the engine rotate? If yes,it's not the starter or the battery. When you turn the key into the ON position before it starts can you hear an electric motor noise winding up? If yes , the fuel pump maybe OK but if the pump pressure is bad...blazer wont start. Pump runs about 300 plus labor. I've done it..It sucks

1999 chevy blazer won't start


First of all make sure all your battery connections are Clean and Tight. If they are and all your dash lights come on and its not starting But its cranking over Your anti theft alarm may have gotten activated. You may have to leave your Key in the On position for 20 minutes to reset the alarm. Not cranking just in the on position, Now if its not Cranking and your hearing a clicking sound it may be your starter. I have sometimes tapped on the stater with a deadblow hammer and had someone crank it over Making sure your in park foot on brake and being EXTREMLY Carefull that you are not going to run someone over. If that don't get you going Get back to me we can do some more trouble shooting. Get that thing going for you. Thanks, Bear001
