Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
I have been working on the center console
If it's clicking, power is getting to starter relay..could be a weak battery among many other things? Not shifting out of gear? Is it auto or manual? If auto, check the neutral switch. Also check all fuses, relays etc.

I am assuming you have a console shifter. If so, the shift linkage is jammed keeping it from going into park (which is where it has to be to start the truck). When in park and the brake pedal is depressed, the shifter is interlocked with the brake pedal via a switch/relay connected to the shifter with a linkage. Check the linkage to the shifter - it may be jamming the shifter.

Testimonial: "Sorry that was not the solution. With what you told me I was able to disengage the electronic switch and move the shifter out of park, or up into park. still can not start Jimmie, just makes quick clicking sound."
try checking and replacing the B/T fuse. if blowen fuse the u wanna replace turn the car on and drive it round alittle, make sure u have 15amp back up fuses with you! then after put it in park then back into drive to check shifting!

My mother had the same problem in her 2004 SC Lariat. All you have to do is pop up that center console where the gear shifter is (it's connected by pop in fastners) and push that white default button on the side of the gear shift. After you get tired of doing this for a bout a week, the dealer will try and charge about 6-$700 bucks for this piece. Luckly we got it replaced for nothing...Thank God!!!
I forgot what the dealer said why was it malfunctioning; you might want to try and see if there is a recall on it first before you go and shell out some money. Hope this helps.
I'm actually surfing through yahoo to fix another problem I'm going through...the flashing climate control unit. Yeah, her's went out and I'm trying to fix it instead of going to the dealer.

Check your transmission. Look underneath the truck and see if you see moisture around the transmission pan. If you see any indication of that, you may have a huge issue on your hands. Your reverse gear is seized to the Drive Gear. However hopefully it's something like needing a new clutch or a clutch adjustment
