Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

Periodically, when I turn the key to start my 2004 Silverado, it does nothing. It doesn't make a noise, it just is dead. If I sit in it and turn the key about 50 - 100 times, it will usually start. Sometimes, I have to wait 30 - 60 minutes, and then it will start. If you any have any knowledge or information about this problem, I would be grateful to learn about it. Thank you, L.Brown.

Next time check to see if the security light is flashing. If it is then you set off the system.Some models the security is set everytime you leave the vehicle. I believe yours can be changed thru the radio, check your owners manual. If the security is set off, turn the key off, then bck on, let set for ten minutes, you will have to do this three times, do not take the key out or try to start it untill after the third time or you will have to start over. If the security light is not flashing then you have a ignition switch problem. The switch is locate under the dash mounted to the steering column. not to hard to replace.Let me know I can help, If you need it.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. Occasionally when I turn the key to start it nothing happens. I have power, all lights come on. There are no noises or anything. If I use the remote starter, it works.


sounds like the ignition control switch has gone bad. all light will come one but if you turn to start and nothing happen but works with remote starter then the first thing to get checked is the ignition control switch.

Everything is dead


Hi eyansdaddy,
Sounds like a bad connection on the battery , check the earth cable on the battery and the one that earths the engine to the bodywork (at the bottom of the engine) if there worn or frayed it can stop the engine from starting. all the best Scott

I had the pacifica on ramps changed the oil now it wont start


Clean your battery terminals take them off and clean them. Turn on your headlights if you turn the key and nothing happens and the lights are bright hit the starter with a hammer try it a few times if it starts you have a bad armature in the starter. If nothing happens and the headlights go out or dim the battery has a bad connection or is bad. Check under the hood on the right above the battery the relays one is the starter relay switch it out with one of the extra ones in there. Put a volt meter on the battery just because you charged it doesn't mean it is 12.6 just sitting and not below 10 volts with key on

My 2004 silverado crewcab battery went dead and was replaced. The Air conditioning system now only blows through the defrost vents and the dial to change the airflow does not work. Can this be reset?


Turn the key on and make sure the blower motor is working. It doesn't matter what speed. Turn the key off. Pull the hvac1 fuse out of the under hood fuse box. Wait five minutes. Reinstall the fuse. Turn the key on, do not start the engine or touch the heater controls. You should hear the heat swiping through the different modes. After a couple of minutes it should stop. Turn the key off then start the vehicle. It may take several tries but eventually it should recalibrate.

Battery dead after a day (repeatedly.....)


Take your truck to your local Auto Zone and aske them to test your alteranter. They will do this at no charge. If you can "jump" it and it starts ok, I bet the alt is bad. Check it out, costs nothing but your time!
