Question about 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

2 Answers

95 Chevy Silverado.

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.

    Well one problem I should have said at the begining. When I turn the key over it doesn't even crank. No click (like if it could be the starter). I think its the ignition switch or the Neutural Switch (If I put it into Neutural it would start.) All that happens is the lights come on and everything else works. Just no crank!!

    1994 chevy truck 4.3L has power to lights, radio etc.. Just no engine crank or starter engaging. Had auto store check starter and it's fine. Ignition module is good. Need expert advise.

    I turned the ignition key and absolutely nothing happens. My starter is only 8 months old. I finally got it started by turning the key for 3 seconds and than pushing the gas pedal down a third of the way.

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.

Good Luck
Hope this helps

The small wire from the ignition switch goes to the small post on the starter solenoid. The large wire from the battery goes to the large post on the starter solenoid.

2002 chevy silverado starter would start sometimes and other times everything worked but the starter did nothing husband put new starter in now it turns over fine but does not even try to start [ a small 3...

If the starter turns over, it's doing it's job. Look toward the ignition or fuel system for solutions. That broken wire just may be the culprit. It takes spark, fuel, and air intake to run.

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.

Replaced starter and ignition relays under hood on my 99 chevy silverado and to wont do anything no security light no nothing is on everything good on all connections replaced wiring harness...

Is power getting to the ignition switch? Do the warning lights and gauges come on when key is turned to on? That would verify power in and power out at the switch. Then you would need to check the start circuit. A single start wire comes out of the switch, the signal travels through the neutral safety switch and a starter relay and then to the starter solenoid mounted on the starter. Solenoid closes contacts so battery power can operate the starter. If new starter doesn't work, power has been lost between the ignition switch and the starter.
If no power to the ignition switch check maxi fuses, all fuses in fact, and possibly a fusible link from the battery that may be the feed for the switch.

How can i manually reset the computer on my 99 chevy silverado 1500 4x4? my oil pump is weak and it has a dry start and when i started it this mornin i think it kicked the knock sensor and shut my motor...

The knock sensor will not cause a no-start. The knock sensor only retards the timing when the engine is running. If the starter is not working we need to check the battery voltage, battery cables, starter, engine ground, neutral safety switch, ignition switch, security system. These are the only things that can cause a no crank.
If you really have the urge to clear your computer disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes.
