GMC QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I drove 45 miles the other day and then turned my truck off for about 10 minutes. I tried to turn the truck on and it tried to turnover once and didn't start, I turned the key to the start position about 3 or 4 more times and nothing happened, I waited a second and tried one more time and it started. I drove 60 miles and turned the truck off and it wouldn't start again. I had someone try to jump me off and nothing happened, so the guy suggested that I tap on the starter to see if that was the problem, I tapped on the starter a minute and it started. I drove another 60 miles and the same thing happened. I tried to tap on the starter this time and nothing happened, but I got a flathead screwdriver and touched it to the front of the starter and a piece of medal and it made the starter spark. After touching the starter a few times and it spark and tapping on it a few times the truck started, I drove 60 miles again and shut it off until the next morning. The same thing started to happen again and this time I had someone with jumper cables hooked up to my truck and I tapped on the starter several times and I made the starter spark with the flathead several times and it took about 30 minutes to start. I drove 60 miles and turned it off until today. I tried everything that I did before and nothing happened, I replaced the battery because it has messed up before and it was 7 years old. Still nothing, it won't even try to turn over. Any suggestions?
My van is actually a 1986 - could not denote earlier year than 1990
Recently got an oil change and a new battery no when I hit a bump or press the brakes paddle the radio changes station
The battery light comes on for a few seconds then goes out then comes on then goes out. It just keeps doing it.
Tires are good,pressure good.Vibration can be felt in steering wheel.
New plugs wires air filter oil change oil filter. Cleaned throttle body and replaced gasket 3 weeks ago. Had a rough idle before tune up and still does. Fuel filter was changed about 6 months ago. Why will truck not stay running.
The issue is inconsistent. What are fixes and what is possible damage to my engine/vehicle? If this is a common problem why is there not a GMC recall?
won't even try to turn over, if battery gets fully charged and key in on position for about 5 minutes then will start but only will run for a day or two
Battery has been replaced but didn't fix the issue. The problem seems to occur more often when trying to start the van after it has recently been run. (Stalled at the gas pump, in a parking lot after getting groceries.)
When it doesn't start and the key is turned, the van has full power to all functions (including radio.) It's as if the ignition doesn't recognize the key is turning because there's no "pause" in electrical connection to any of the steering column.
No engine light occurs, nor do any errors show up. I had it at O'Reilly and they tested a good battery and alternator.
only happens on cool mornings after its warmed up runs great says "engine power is reduced" and "service theft deterrent system"
I gave someone a jump start and right before I did my a/c was working perfectly fine. Until afterwards all the power inside my car and a/c stopped working. I fixed the power inside but the only problem now is my a/c is only blowing hot air out of the front side vents.
my 1995 Kimmy starts at times it will idle bat give gas it stalls
the speedometer acts erractily after stereo was stolen from vehicle
I love my Vandura 2500 I bought from a one owner. The power steering unit is leaking like crazy, use a qt a day and not going much of anywhere. Will be traveling to MO and FL soon. Need to know what unit it is. Is a gas fuel.
Will the other 3 bolts hold that cause the one bolt snapped flush so there's no way of getting it out I doubt. And I didn't realize it was gonna b so easy to break and now I'm concerned if I just put it back together the other 3 bolts might not seal and hold the pressure when I'm driving. Has this happened to anyone b4 and can u help with suggestions?
This light just came on. I keep my vehicle upkeep right on schedule. Does this mean I need new brakes, rotar. Also, IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE?
The coils aren't firing at all, everything else working including fuel pump, replaced crank sensor, and cam sensor too. Lost. No codes coming up, all grounds checked
I need to replace the rubber push button on the rear lift gate that opens the window only. need to see the procedure for doing this don't want to take to body shop
Problem randomly happened at 50 mph and my trans just stopped working. Rpm rev high then truck slowed down. Won't even go into reverse. Tried diagnostic it looks like it could be a solenoid but not sure.
on star cant diagnose the problem since radio doesn't turn on . already tried shutting car roff locking doors wait 4 min go back in car turn it on still no radio or on star booth green and red on star buttons not working
steering feels very loose
When shutting off engine, dash gauges go down as I would expect. 5 sec later they go back up. Something is not shutting off.
when driving my anti theft light comes on and shuts off all my gauges of but the battery gauge and turns off the ac it still blows air and drives fine what could be causing this???
Replaced torque converter last week everything good til I put it in reverse then instantly the motor shuts off.
Trucks starts cold fine then dies out. Pulls crankshaft sensor code change and no change
The problem occurs always
I have looked online and haven't found anything to help me. I have tried putting a screwdriver in and pulling, I have tried sliding it out. Nothing. I can't stand driving without my mirror.
I can remove it but where do I take it for repairs
Oil looks like brown mud and truck has no pressure
clicking noise from under dash. could be a actuator in heat a/c system. can I fix this?
