Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I had same issue. I thought it was a fuel delivery problem but I then noticed that while I had it on a battery charger it started up immediately. I noticed that the speed of the starter/flywheel was significantly quicker leading to the conclusion that the battery just needs to have more cranking amps. When I told this to a mechanic friend of mine he told me that it had something to do with the computer and that I just needed a better battery, more cranking amps. I just bought a battery today might even get a bigger one

The van will start fine for periods of 2 - 3 weeks then will turn over & won't start. Usually within the next day or two it will start & run fine
& the cycle repeats. This has been going on since Jan. I've had it towed 5 times, looked at by 2 different mechanics & a chev dealership
mechanic. Still nobody has a clue whats going on. The van has 94,000
miles & besides this problem runs fine. I've had it for almost 7 years
without any other problems. This is beyond the point of being frustrating. I use the van for my business & its embarrasing when
I have to get it towed from a customers house. If anyone has any
ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Bob

You need to replace the handle itself. The inside of the handle where the metal cable fitting attaches causes too much strain on the plastic and the molded groove breaks. Ford has the same problem. I don't know why these car man. dont just go back to all metal exterior handles. If you have time you can probably fix it with epoxy and washers, but the fastest way is to get one aftermarket or from a junkyard. Hope this answers your question.
Please remember to rate this fix.

test and see if you have spark and fuel preasure, you may have bad feul pump, common problem is the fuel pump goes bad, but check before replacing.

Start with fuel system. Listen for fuel pump humm at fuel tank No humm check wiring to pump for power. Then check for spark at plugs and wires. Remove wire from coil and hold near engine and see arch when you crank. No arch. Replace ignition Modular inside distributor cap or cap or rotor
