Question about 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
I have a 95 Chevy Silverado and it will not start. I don't know if it is a ignition problem or if I need a new starter. I just changed the starter and alternator not but a month ago. It has a 454 under the hood.
To bypass the other switches, run a wire from the battery to the starter bendix and if it cranks then the problem is in the wiring or the switches you mention.

Nice motor for that truck!
First thing I would do if I were you would be to check spark and fuel. To check spark remove a spark plug with the wire attached and crank the motor, if you see a spark while cranking you got spark and that's not the problem. If there is no spark possible causes are bad/old plugs and/or wires, dist cap worn or out of adjustment. Being that it's a 454 I am assuming it is carburated. To check fuel remove air cleaner to gain access to carb. While cranking hit the gas pedal and have someone check to see if fuel is coming out of the carb jet. If you got fuel spraying out then it's not fuel, but if there is no fuel coming out then possiblr causes are bad carb jets(replace carb or have rebuilt), fuel pump, or fuel filter.
Here's a start, let me know what happens and we can keep running down the list of possible causes.
Hope this helps
