Go back to basics. Check if you have spark. From the coil and the plugs. Check if you have fuel pressure, check if you have compression on all cylinders. If you have all three action should happen.

Most engine computers will not activate the fuel pump relay if there is no oil pressure. Listen for a hum after trying to crank when you stop cranking. You can try spraying some starting fluid (Ether) on the air filter and trying to start it. If it still won't start with the ether, you may not be looking at a fuel problem. Check visually (never by touching) for a wet distributor cap or spark plug wires. Also check for cracking, blistering or burn marks on the distributor cap, ignition coil, spark plug wires or the ignition control module.

Assuming you have everything reinstalled correctly and the fuel pump was your problem to start with, try disconnecting the battery for at least 15 minutes to reset the computer. This worked on my 1996 Blazer.

hello ase tech here. so your starter clicks when you try to start the car correct. the first thing i would check would be the ground at the battery is it tight. next i would check to see if you can hand turn the motor over, by attacting a socket that fits the crank bolt and turn by hand if ok i would take the starter back where you bought it and request a new one.

1996 blazer battery draining


i had this problem on my 96 blazer, it turned out to be the timer that turns off the interior lights after 15 seconds, it would turn off the lights but not all the way, it would sit and drain the battery.. an easy way to test for an open circuit yourself:
  • Connect one end of the test light to the negative terminal of the battery, and the other end of the test light to the end of the negative battery cable, so that the light is now "inserted" into the circuit between the cable and the battery.
  • Step 3 Check the intensity of the test light. A faint glow is normal and indicative of the small current used to power the cars computer and clock. A bright glow means you have a significant battery drain that needs to be repaired.
  • Step 4 Leave the test light in place, and begin to remove fuses one at a time from the fuse panel. Check the test light after you remove each one. If the light is on, replace the fuse and move on to the next one.
  • Step 5 Pinpoint the circuit that is causing the battery drain when you pull a fuse and the test light goes out.

    My 200 blazer sits all week and this past saturday


    Seems as though your mechanic needs to check for some chewed wires but a bad cap and rotor as well as plugs and wires have been known to cause no starts on these trucks for years.

    Have a 01 Tahoe with new red top and fairly new alternator. It charges at about 14v. But if I leave the Tahoe set for a week, it wont start.Where do I look for a voltage leak. The Tahoe seems to be working...


    Start with the basics; Is the reason the car does not start is that the battery is discharged after a week of sitting or a case that it won't start without a jump although the battery is still good. If the car just does not start after sitting then try the following; Pull the negative battery cable and let the car sit overnight. Reconnect the cable in the morning and see if it starts. If it does then you are looking for something that is pulling current from the battery. Could be lots of things; light on in the glove box or trunk, a short in a wire, etc. You can try pulling a couple of fuses each evening and in the morning, replace the fuses and see if the car will start after sitting. If it continues to discharge the battery then try another set of fuses. The day it starts after sitting then you have narrowed the electrical system that is discharging your battery. Focus on those systems

    sounds like the fuel pump isn't working. check your fuses. and when you turn the ignition on don't try to start it but just turn it to the on position and listen for a humming noise that would be you fuel pump pressurizing the lines if you don't hear a noise then i would replace the fuel pump. Hope this helps.

    1999 blazer wont start??


    Your battery is either faulty or ther is a parasitic drain, have it checked out at parts house. With a good battery installed, spray some starter fluid into intake housing. If it starts, then dies, you have fuel pressure/delivery problems. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the key? Hope this helps.
