    Same problem. 2001 GC. Happens randomly. Sometimes it just takes cleaning the terminals, but sometimes not. It seems there's a short somewhere in the system. Keep blowing taillights.

    When I turn the key, nothing happens. All dash lights come on. Radio, locks, etc all work. 10 minutes later. It will start fine. This happens when its cold, warm or hot. Mechanic had it for two days and couldn't find anything. Took it to the dealer and they replaced a relay in the passenger door that they said was draining the battery ($750). The next day, same problem. Please HELP

My Tahoe locked up, shut down, no lights, no brakes, no steering, no dash lights. I disconnected battery and reconnected battery, there was a ticking sound coming from the engine. No dash lights still...

Sounds like you may have a dead battery or alternator. Disconnect your battery and take it to your local auto parts store and they will test it for you. You can do the same thing with the alternator. But call ahead to find a store that is capable of checking these parts for you. A check you could do yourself is jump start your battery off another car or charge it on a charger. If it turns over and starts, let it run. If it dies and the same thing happens with the ticking. Chances are you have a bad alternator that's not charging the battery. So the vehicle ran off of the battery til the battery ran out of juice. If it keeps running but won't start back up when you shut it off, chances are good your battery is bad and the vehicle is running off your alternator.

Out of the blue my chevy colorado won't start if i disconnect the battery then hook it reconnect after a couple minutes it will start

does the unit crank after it fails? I would check all of my battery connections you may have a loose ground either at the battery or at the engine. You may also have a bad starter relay located un the fuse panel under the hood

2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

I Have a 94 cherokee country with a 56028297 ecu,it has no power at the grey wire at the ecu,it does flash sometimes and I can hear the relay work sometimes. I can bypass the fuel pump relay circuit and...

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.

No start condition new battery , good starter, turn key to start position light come on dash, go forward to start light go out and you hear click under dash area like relay, no power getting to starter....

no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.
