Out of the clear blue the car will not turn over. The battery is about a month old and is 100% charged. The dash lights come on when you turn the key but it seems the starter is not getting the signal to crank over the engine. If you hold the key on the crank position for about ten seconds the odometer reading swithches from the mileage reading to "NO BUS". Also no codes come up with the obd2. Could it be the crank senser or ignition switch? Thanks for your time.
It could be the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic transmission car. If it is a manual transmission car their is a safety switch in the clutch pedal. If these check out ok then check the starter solenoid

#1. Check the secondary cable which runs to your starter.
#2. Check Starter Relay (unplug, and shake it - sometimes to can hear broken stuff inside of them)
#3. Make sure your cables are tight, and your battery has a good charge. (was it trickle charged ? jumping and then turning the car off will not be enough charge for the battery ; you must charge to 100%)
#4. Check all grounds.
Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John
When you get that code it means that the computer isn't detecting the
relay kicking in and starting the cooling fan. In most cases replacing
the relay for the fan will cure that problem and you can erase the code
with scanner once the problem is repaired P1490 Low Speed Fan CTRL Relay Circuit - you need to
check and make sure the cooling fan is coming on when it suppose to.

Try to do the crank relearn: Ensure that your battery is fully charged before attempting the relearn procedure. Do not leave any battery charger or jumper cables attached to the battery. Close the hood completely. Some applications require that the doors remain closed during the procedure. 96-99 S10 1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the all position (same as if the vehicle would have started). The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes. 2. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns oft) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt tostart the vehicle. The vehicle should start on this cycle. 3. Once the vehicle is running, the password relearn is complete.
00 + S10 1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the on position. (same as if the vehicle would have started) 2. The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes. 3. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns off) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes. 5. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start 6. Once the vehicle is running, the password is learned and this completes the cycle. 7. Clear any DTC's with a scan tool if necessary. DTC history will be cleared after 100 ignition cycles. Thank you for using fixya and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your jimmy running 100%
Had this problem in mine, I would say try
rebooting your computer in your Car. how ?1.)removing both battery
terminals 2.) go in and turn the key (this will drain power in any
circuits) 3.) turn key off 4.)then for around 30 seconds then reconnect
The battery light on your dash indicates a charging system failure, that would be the alternator and its wiring. If you are still driving the car and haven't needed a jump start in four months, you probably have a malfunction in the circuit that checks the charging system. Check your voltage at the battery with the vehicle running and if it is between 13.5-15 volts i wouldn't worry to much about it.
