The starter solenoid is the problem. The starter is under the truck on the passenger side. Go under the truck with a hammer and tap the starter a couple of times. Then go and try to start it again. Try this a couple of times and it may solve your problem. If this does not work, then the starter solenoid is out and needs to be replaced or you have a bad connection.

The engine starts and dies immediately. I have just changed the starter switch and starter switch housing. 2001 Chevy Silverado 5.3 Does the system need to be coded?


See if the fuel pump is working. Turn the key on and listen by the gas tank if you hear the pump working. Mine was still working but didn't have enough pressure to keep the truck running. You might want to test the fuel pressure.

2004 chevy silverado. Truck tries to start but wont. Everything is fine? Had it checked nothing wrong. Alternator, Starter Ignition Switch everything checks out!


could be a bad fuel pump...when you first turn on the key in the mornings in a quiet setting you should be able to hear a humming noise coming from your fuel tank it might only last 4 to 5 seconds this is the prime for the fuel rail going to injectors..if you dont hear this, i would take it to a shop to confirm. usually on most cars there is a dedicated fuel prime wire that you can hook up twelve volts to confirm that the pump is working, if the pump is working then it will be a lot easier fix.. because it might only be a fuse or relay that is causing the problem.

Turns over but wont start


you need to find out if your missing spark at plugs or fuel pressure,you could hear the pump but that doesn't tell you if you have 5psi or 55psi,
you will need a fuel preesure gauge and check that on the fuel rail redd valve if you end up having spark

You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.
