  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Monson Towing & Locksmith says:

    Had this same exact to the T situation I was facing today! Thought way back about this video and sure enough wire to ign riding on that same location of fuse box braket green crusties. Gave er a tug and popped in two! I have learned so much from you! Eternally grateful for all you have taught me throughout the years! You rock!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David summers says:

    If you connect the test light directly to the battery on the negative side even with a jumper you always have a good ground then

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ozzy Krahn says:

    Maybe you can help me gonna be a semi long story but I will keep it short. My 2015.5 silverado duramax started with no sounds from speakers or turn signals. After turning it off and on again they would work. I did this recently and all the lights flickered and only one click. I got the batteries tested and they said both had bad cells. Replaced and still one click no flicker. Replaced the starter and still same thing. Every fuse and relay under the hood and inside have been checked and all good. Except for the 60a on top of the battery it doesnt show 12v. I dont know where that goes to. But I am close to sending it to the dealer if it doesnt start after jumping that fuse. I am tired of throwing money at it like a stripper to get it to start

    what will cause an ignition switch to fail?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Bigham says:

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carson Jensen says:

    wow, amazing detail on this diagnosis! Too bad it's not my exact problem. I am starting to have a few electrical issues with my duramax; trailer tow harness and no crank starting issues.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deadpool Lee says:

    I have a 1998 Silverado no crank no start replace the starter replace battery security not on what do I do please help

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew J. Foster says:

    Ive got an '00 Silverado 1500 5.3 and am having intermittent starting issues. You turn the key to start you can hear the relay click, but no crank. New battery and headlights look good. Not a battery issue. Because this issue only happens 1 out of every 4 or 5 start attempts I believed my ignition switch is good. When it didn't work its just dead in the water for 10 or so attempts (2 mins) but eventually one would take and she fired up. I figured the contacts in the starter must be wearing and finally gave in and installed a new starter/ solenoid. NOW I still intermittently have the issue about every once of every 4 or 5 attempts (as before), but when I have a failed attempt, she ALWAYS starts on a 2nd subsequent attempt right after. So the new starter definitely has helped. I pulled the steering wheel column cover and all checked all connections, appear good. I also swapped my Headlight and Starter relay's in the fuse box to make sure that wasn't the problem, no cigar. Where should I go from here?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lars Turner says:

    I have a 2004 GMC 3500 Sierra the battery was dead so ask someone for a jump he hooked the jumper cable up the wrong way now the truck won’t start I would turn the key n it does nothing but the lights come on an the dashboard too I’ll take the key out an everything would still be on only way to get it off is to disconnect the battery I’ve checked all the fuse but some one told me that there is a open circuit N would the computer be damage if the jumper cables was hooked up the wrong way. Thank you
