Question about 1995-1997 Chevy Tahoe Ignition Starter Alarm Switch
I have a 2003 chevy tahoe. When you turn the key it will not start. The lights on the car do not dim, and the batterie is fine. what could it be?
If it just "clicks" check starter cable. If you have an aftermarket alarm, make sure it's off. There are 2 or three ignition fuses under the hood and I think one or two on the left side dash panel at the door (open the door on driver side and you can see the plastic panel on the side of the dash directly in front of you) There maybe an Ignition relay under the hood (fuse panel) and one on the right side dash (same as left) To check the relays, it takes two people, one to turn the key and one to listen for the relay "click", if you hear it click, you have power and the relay is good. Check them all, the owners manual will give you all the exact fuse and relay locations. Beyond that, try and jump start the truck. Make sure all of your equipment is "off" Radio, A/C etc. then try and start, if the jumping vehicles RPM's drop, let them sit for a few minutes with the second vehicle running and try again. If it still won't start, and all the fuses and relays are good, you've got a bad cable from the red square batt box next to the alternator that runs to the starter, or a very loose cable, or a bad starter. I am not a mechanic, however I have owned 4 Yukons and my current one has 243k. I've seen all the quirks! (and fixed them all) Hope this helps
