Report: Intermittant Failure to Start
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problem
Average Mileage: 113,250 mi (65,000 mi - 170,000 mi)
Exactly same problem as described by Schmackster1952. Problem is totally intermittent, but frequency of occurrence seems to be getting higher. Battery, charging, and all other electrical system components seem OK. I have tried moving shift from park to neutral; took key in and out of switch; nothing seems to be related. Is there any switch, relay or sensor that could cause the truck to "think" it is not in park, or the engine is already running, or whatever else might keep it from engaging the starter motor. When it decides to act right, all is will. Anyone else found a solution?
Will turn key and it is like no power from battery to starter, but have lights, radio, etc. Turn key again or sometimes multiple times, to no avail. Then, turn it one more time and it starts. Then the next 15 starts, no problem. Sometimes hot engine, sometimes cold.
