    Ours developed a similar problem except that intermittently, the engine would not turn over at all, you turn the key to start it and all the accessories come on, but nothing ont he starter. I did take it in twice to the shop when it was acting up and naturally did not fail. I did see a tsb on that particular problem, but when I called the dealer on it, they didn't know anything about the tsb that was listed on the internet. The tsb had called to replace the starter relay.

    Hi
    I had the same problem with my 2002 Bravada a few years ago. It turned out to be some kind of set screw in the shifter. Basically the vehicle 'thought' that it was in gear when it was not. After a few attempts at the dealership they were able to fix it.

I would suspect the ignition switch in the column is the issue. NOT where you place the key but the electronic part behind the key. Hope this helps

Why am I having problems starting my Bravada. There is power, the started worksb, but when I turn the key nothing happens.All the dash board lights come on but no starter engagement?


do the dashboard lights go out when key turned to start? when you say nothing happens,is there a click? does the motor turn over,but not fire? is it an automatic,meaning is the gear inhibitor switch preventing starter from working?have you tried a jumper battery?putting a jumper lead from the battery earth to the engine ground helps sometimes,if earthing cables broken

You have probably triggered the antitheft system.

Relearn Procedure

  1. Turn the key on, with the engine OFF.
  2. Try to start the engine, then release the key to ON, Engine will not start.
  3. Watch the security telltale, after about 10 mins, it will turn OFF.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes. You must turn the ignition OFF for 30 seconds before attempting to start the vehicle after the 3 cycles. Then start the engine .

Car was rinning perfect. One day it would not start. there was nothing, no clicking ,bell and guages were working. Jump start was nothing. Installed a new battery there was nothing. Went bact back 2 hours...


It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

don't trust the new battrery, have it tested, i went through 4 aftermarket batteries in 6 months, gave up and purchased the factory batt, never had any further issues to this day, Kragen's are the worst.
