  1. Remote start only works when I disconnect and reconnect the battery. It will work for about 5 starts and it stops working. No check engine light. No warning lights, hood is closed, doors are closed and all the fuses are good. 2014 silverado 5.3L
  2. Apologies if this has been asked before, but haven't found it by searching yet. Last weekend I was driving up the 395 and after filling up a tank of gas, tried to start my new truck (2021 w/ <4k miles). I pushed the start button once and the starter engaged with a weird cranking noise that continued until I re-pushed the button to stop it. Tried it two more times with the same result. A guy in an LT Trail Boss behind me heard the noise and walked over. He said its happened to him 3 times in 15k miles and that the only thing he could do was wait it out, try the unlock/lock buttons on t
  3. Hey , anyone else having issues with this? I have a 2014 sierra with a factory remote starter. Recently when I try to start the truck cold it does not work but if I start with the key and run for a while the remote start works and continues to work as long as the engine is warm. Going back to the dealership tomorrow to get it looked at again. First time they did not find a fault and couldn't replicate the issue I had. I think the engine was probably warm when they looked at it. Thanks.
  4. So I have a 2016 Sierra. No issues till yesterday when I went to start after running into a store. I got one click then nothing. All the different systems service warnings come on display when I turn key. I recharged battery to make sure it was good. I jumped the starter relay to make sure it wasn't starter. It turns over great with or without the key on. Having all the systems service warning coming on seems the most confusing. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. New to the forum and thought I would inquire if anyone has some advice in regards to a starting problem I am having. Thank you for reading this. For starters, the SUV is a 2009 GMC Yukon XL SLT 5.3L SFI Flex Fuel (120K miles and oil change light is on, changed oil but have not reset light indicator as I have been playing with starting issue). For the last few weeks it has had a strange intermittent starting issue. When you turn the key to the acc position the battery reads correctly and matches my meter with all electronics working. However, when I would turn the key to the next
  6. Sorry if this has been asked before. I have a 2008 GMC Yukon SLE 4.8L and when we start the vehicle there is a grinding noise. Assuming it is the starter. Now i have replaced the starter a couple of years ago now. The grinding noise does not happen everytime but it also does not start once in a while on the first try. Any thoughts or ideas?
  7. The starter motor on my 2015 6.0l sounds like it's struggling. Sound file is attached. I'd appreciate if you all could listen and give me your opinion. Sounds kind of like a low battery but it's not. I replaced the battery just to be sure since it was of unknown age. Is my starter going bad? 6.0 starting.wav
  8. My son has a 95 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 5.7 Liter VIN K Truck. He noticed over the last couple of weeks he would need to continue to turn the key to get the truck to start. Last night he drove the truck, sat for about an hour truck would not turn over. Lights on the dash came on (but they where sort of dim) so we assumed the starter finally gave it up. We went to local parts store, bought a starter installed in the parking lot went to start the truck still nothing. We checked the battery with on ohm meter, check fuses everything seemed to be ok. I ended up jumping the connections on the start
  9. Hi everyone. Wondering if anyone has had an issue like this or could tell me where to start... I live in WI and we went through the polar vortex recently and my truck didn't move for 10 days (I work from home). I went run an errand and when I tried to start the truck, I got the starter spinning but it wouldn't engage. My first thought was since it sat for so long was to give the battery a charge and try again. I charged it up, checked the voltage on the battery which showed 12.85v so I tried starting again. Same result, just a spinning starter. That led me to think the solenoid on the sta
  10. I am trying to troubleshoot a strange noise that occurs when I start my 2008 5.3L 4WD Avalanche. It only happens occasionally, usually only on cold starts (although I can get it to happen with repeated startups), and it is usually pretty brief and goes away as the car starts. Its a metallic noise but kind of hard to describe, so I have a video/audio of three repeated startups, and the noise occurs on the third turnover. My first thought was of course starter, but I am not sure if it would make this kind of noise, and it does not occur often or long enough for me to pinpoint the
  11. Ready to leave for work, this morning, no start 1yo battery, turns strong every time Have lights, radio, fan, etc 1988 k1500 5.0 No upgrades, this truck is bare bone stock, roll up windows, not even AC I'm at work now got ride from friend Starter??
  12. My 2015 Silverado Z71 5.3 ltr seems to have a starter noise. When using the remote starter function, when the engine starts, for a very brief moment there is a noise which sounds like the starter did not disengage & continues to spin. I don’t notice it as much when using the key in the ignition to start. This is not a normal starting sound & I’ve never on heard it on 3 previous Chevy trucks with remote starters. Any ideas or thoughts?
  13. Hey everyone, I already posted this, but in the wrong forum (GMT 400 Trucks) Having a hell of a time wiring a successful push button start on an 85 chev with the 305 V8. When I turn the ignition to on, the gauges turn on, but (with new battery) when I crank, there is nothing. No click, no sound. So first of all, how do I wire it up if that is the problem, and second, thoughts on what this might be? Connections are good, new wires from battery to starter solenoid and I cleaned up the ground. Old farm truck, so about half the sensors are disconnected (like the clut
  14. Hey everyone, Having a hell of a time wiring a successful push button start on an 85 chev with the 305 V8. When I turn the ignition to on, the gauges turn on, but (with new battery) when I crank, there is nothing. No click, no sound. So first of all, how do I wire it up if that is the problem, and second, thoughts on what this might be? Old farm truck, so about half the sensors are disconnected (like the clutch safety switch). Looks like it ran without them for a while, so I doubt that is the problem. Bad ignition switch? Thanks for the help.
  15. A few weeks ago I was driving my 1983 C-10, and it seemed to be running alright. I parked in my driveway and came back out to leave in five minutes or less, and the truck would not start. I tried several things thinking the battery was the problem since I could not get power to anything (lights, radio, etc.) however even with a newer battery nothing worked. I then tried tapping the starter and solenoid with a hammer. It started and ran for about 3 weeks. Today I drove it about an hour away (mostly on highways) with no problems. When I got back in the truck to go home the radio and lights would
  16. This just recently started. Normally I turn the ignition key forward until vehicle starts and then let the key go. When I do this now, it continues to try and start even after letting the key go. It does this for a few seconds and then stops. I take the key out of the ignition and try again. This time it doesn't want to start until I pump the gas a little. Sounds like failing starter? 2008 GMC Yukon 5.3 flex
  17. I am having an issue starting my 1991 GMC K2500. Sometimes it fires right up. Other time absolutely nothing happens when i turn the key. If i turn it off and on enough times eventually something will connect and it will start. Other times i have to jump it, and even then sometimes nothing at all when i turn the key. It has a brand new crate 350, and runs great when it starts, but i cant rely on it enough to start to take it anywhere far from home. Any suggestions on what it might be? I have replaced the steering column and had the issue with both the old and new column. Thanks in advance- Ken
  18. I have a 2008 Yukon (5.3L V8, Flexfuel) that's having some starting issues after running for an extended period of time. Engine turns over fine when cold, but after driving for an extended period of time (minimum 30mins, varying speeds - city, highway), shutting the engine down and restarting after 10-30mins the vehicle starts funny. Instead of cranking over normally, it fires up almost immediately after turning the key - maybe half a crank. Engine then revs high for 5-10 seconds before returning to normal RPM. I've had the fuel pressure system tested and it came in at 55psi. I've also sta
  19. Of course my first post would be a trouble shooting question right. So ive got a 97 5.7 vortec, new starter, alternator, fuel pump and filter. a while back i started having issues getting my truck to start if the engine was warm and i had turned it off. usually quick trips to the store were ok but as soon as my engine gets to temperature it wont start. ideas of where to start looking.
  20. I am experiencing when I turn the key in the ignition, I get nothing, if a continue to try to start turning the key eventually it starts. Any ideas, all of the events seem to be abnormal from how the truck was running days ago. I replaced the two batteries in January 2015, highest cold cranking amps. 1999 GMC Sierra Quad Cab 2500 SLT 7.4 vortec 454. Voltage seems to be cahrging fine.
  21. I need some help, quick! I parked my pickup (2007 Sierra NBS) like normal on Saturday evening. Went back out Sunday afternoon to start it...nothing. It was completely dead. The remote keyless entry didn't work. There weren't any door chimes, interior lights, dash lights, dome light, shift indicator, nothing. When I went to turn the ignition over, dead. After I took the key out and reinserted it turned the ignition over the "Service Air Bag" message came on and then immediately after that the "Service 4 Wheel Drive" message came on. There is no shift indicator _ under the PRND etc
  22. I've owned my Silverado 4.3l v6 since it was new and have had this problem for about 10 of years. It starts fine the first time but after it's shut off for a while (say 15 to 30 minutes) it won't restart unless I turn the key just to let fuel pump (counting for 3 seconds ) then continue pushing the key over to start and it works every time. When it first started happening it was so intermitent we couldn't make rhyme or reason of it. It sounds like it's trying to crank but doesn't. Even after letting go of the key it contines to sound like you're pushing the key all the way to the start positio
  23. hi my 2005 sierra has a starting problem, sometimes when I turn the key I get nothing but a click, try a few times nothing, then all of sudden it starts no problem. I have lots of battery, lights etc working fine. I am thinking its the starter after all while the truck only has 110,000 KM on it is 10 years old. when it does start it doesn't make any kind of grinding or hitting noise, sounds normal I hate to buy a new starter just to find out that wasn't it but not knowing if it will start when I shut it off is stressing to say the least. thoughts, advise, options?
  24. The initial roll-out will focus on three key parts; the starter, battery, and fuel pump. Other components will be added in future model years. The service will be first offered on the new 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, Tahoe, Suburban, Corvette, Silverado, and Silverado HD. More Chevrolet vehicles will roll out during the 2016 model year. Building on the 15-year history of connected vehicle technology through OnStar, the prognostic service relies on OnStar 4G LTE to provide data streams from sensors within the vehicle.
