Question about Bulldog Remote Starter & T-Harness Kit for 95-03 Chevy Blazer/Chevy S-10 Pi

1 Answer

2003 S-10 with intermitent no start

Starter seems to work fine when it does start. It has a remote starter on it. Someone mentioned that GM has an issue with the security systems not allowing the vehicles to start and that there might be a series of steps that need to be performed to resync the system. The truck has the 2.3 L in it with only 35,000 miles on it. Most of the time when it does not start it is when using the key not the remote starter. It seems that if you turn everything off it will eventually "reset" and decide to start.

I would check to see that the red with white stripe wire, the orange with black stripe wire and the yellow wire have a solid connection. I thought they only made S-10 till 1994

About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.

My 1997 chevy lumina will not start it just makes a clicking sound when i tr to turn te key

Sounds as if you have a bad starter. The vehicle running differently when cold is a whole different issue that has nothing to do with the starter. Below is a picture of the starter and its location. You can have someone turn the key as if to start the car while you actually touch the starter. If it is bad you will feel it trying to enguage or click inside. I'm guessing that's the clicking noise you hear. If the vehicle is in a bad location and you need to move it in order to replace the starter, again while someone is turning the key to start the car you can tap on it with a small hammer or something and GM starters are pretty good about loosening up and starting while you are tapping on it. This doesn't fix the problem it just will get you going so you can move it. This "tapping" works about 85 percent of the time on GM starters. Either way if you feel the starter trying to go with somebody turning the key, more than likely you are dealing with a bad starter. Hope this helps.

If it's not a dead battery, it could have bad connections. Check battery connections for tightness

Check the battery cable connection on the start solenoid, usually very near the battery. Check all wires on the sloenoid.

Check solenoid cable to starter for tightness at both ends.

You installed this unit yourself, correct? You mentioned the bypass unit but not the remote starter unit. First, are all of the car's power wires connected...ignition(pink), 2nd ignition(green or white), accessory(orange)? There is a brown but it is radio accessory and not necessary for remote starter installation. Second, make sure that the ground for the XK06 is connected to the pass lock ground wire(black or orange with black) and not chassis ground. Next, check the ground when running(GWR, brown) from the XK06...make sure that it is connected to the remote starters ground when running. Now, it CANNOT be connected during programming, so make sure that you connected it AFTER you programmed the module. You didn't mention the remote starter unit but this wire is blue/white for Directed, light blue for Prestige and blue with black for some Code. Next, make sure that the ignition and starter wires of the XK06 are properly connected to the vehicle or remote starter's ignition and starter wires. You stated that the remote starter starts when you turn the key to accessory on...what about with just putting the key in the ignition(withoput turning the key)?

I have a 1971 corvette with a 454. The starter is new/rebuilt from GM. It started fine no problems for about 20 or so starts. The last time I went to start it, turned the key, dome lights dimmed, nothing...

A couple of things to check..

Since you did not have your starter rebuilt.. you may have gotten hold of post 75 starter.. there are differences.. the pre 75 have heavier windings and the copper tab to the solenoid is in a slightly different location. Also there should be a heat shield on the solenoid. You didn't mention if this happened after the car was hot or cold..

If this occurs when cold.. remove the starter and check the armature shaft.. it could be fractured.. it will work on the bench just fine.. but eventually under load.. will fail..

Obivously check all connections..cable condition.. and especially grounds.

Lastly.. it is not unsual for the auotpart store books to cross reference the wrong starter for these big blocks.. some starter replacements are often wrong for the year/motor and will extend the starter gear too far...

Good luck

The issue is the frequency of the remote control
often they will have a selection switch to change
the frequency. If not the remote & receiver need
to have chips changed to adjust the frequency

When it does not start, does the starter turn and the engine not fire up,  or does the starter not turn?
