I have a '99 suburban and had the same problem. Couldn't figure it out. Took it to the dealer, and it was a engine disable type module. There is a sensor in the ignition switch that "sees" the key (connected to this module), and allows the engine to start/run. Could be the sensor or the module. My problem was the module. Seem to remember costing about $500 with troubleshooting, parts, labor. Good luck.

I have a 1990 chev silverado that won't start has fuel pressure has spark injectors won't inject changed injectors could the throttle position sensor being bad cause the injectors not to work

No. If it is throttle body injectors(TBI), Check the plugs for power with the key on. No power, check fuse and wiring. If you have power, use a test light at the injector plug on both pins, crank the engine, the light should flash. No flashing, check the wire from the plug the the engine control module(ECM) If it is good(less than 5 ohms and not shorted) replace the ECM. TBI Has only one driver in the ECM, fires both injectors. Multi port injectors(MPI) has several drivers in the ECM. Unlikely they all died at the same time. Unless you have recently done some welding on the truck. Being it is a 90. I would pull all the fuses and visually inspect them. This also get rid of any corrosion problems. Fixed many problems by pulling a good fuse.

I have a 1987 chevy S10 4x4 xcab pickup . it just died one day i rebiult the TBI and put a new computer in it and new coil in . Have checked all the fuses . and it will not start .do you know what i

Check if you have spark (coil or ignition problem) Next consider what you did when rebuilding the TBI as there may be parts that will only operate in one way or settings that have to be adjusted. Lastly is the new ECM compatible with the system (immobiliser) Use a scanner to reset the ecm program

My 98 gmc 1500 V8 5.0l won't start. Has good spark

Spray starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts and you have fuel pressure you have no injection or injector pulse as we call it. Check ECM fuse one and two for continuity if it starts with fluid..

Won't start

Check the fuel injectors, with the key on one side of the two wire connector will have battery voltage, if none is present then check the ECM fuses in the underhood fuel box.

90 chevy 350 tbi crank no start, truck was started driven around the block parked it and let it idle a few minutes before shuting it off, the next day it would not start, it acts like timing is off and is...

You first need to check the fuel pressure, an easy way to access this is to buy a can of spray starting fluid, spray it into the TBI throttle valve and if the truck starts and dies you have no fuel pressure. Replace the fuel; pump, and make sure you get the right pump, it is a low pressure system.
