1 Answer

I have a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab pulled out of the store yesterday and the truck just died I tried to start it when I turn ignition on the security lock light came on and statement that did not Flicker and the chick airbag light came on it never came on before I clicked I turned it on position and everything lights up when I try to start it there's nothing no click no crank no start nothing. Since then I have replaced the starter I have taken the battery apart put new cables new clamps still nothing. I bought a Foxwell nt301 scanner read the codes on it hit it shows no codes. Pending stored or permanent but the yellow light comes on and it has a code for my Stabilitrak but still nothing on the no crank no start

Check the under hood fuse block for a 40 Amp starter fuse, if ok locate and remove the starter relay use a short piece of wire to momentarily jumper cavity 30 into cavity 87 this should make the starter run if it does swap the relay out with one of the same number if it still doesn't work suspect the PCM (powertrain control module). I hope this helps.

You may have a failed battery, or maybe just dirty battery terminals. Check for both.

If the battery terminals are ok switch on the headlights - if they don't work the battery may be faulty.
If you have a multimeter check the battery terminal voltage- it should be greater than 12V.

umm not sure on the 02 but sounds like u are looking at the passengers side air bag light when that lights on means there is a problem with it and its not working so if its off that would be the problem and the reason it turns on some of thiem have a x2 symbol on thiem to let u know its the passenger side

YES, PDC is the Power Distribution Center (underhood), there is located the main relays. According with your comments, do you have power to the relay when the key is turned to the crank position? Then need to see if getting power to the small wire on the starter solenoid when the key is in the crank position.
Have you checked this if so what was the result? To me, it sounds like either the solenoid or the starter is sticking intermittently. I know you had it tested, but if it wasn't sticking then it would test fine.

Check this Testing & Troubleshooting and test diagrams...

Feed Circuit Test
CAUTION The ignition and fuel systems must be disabled to prevent engine start while performing the tests.

  1. Connect a volt-ampere tester to the battery terminals. Refer to the operating instructions provided with the tester.
  2. Disable the ignition and fuel systems by disconnecting the Automatic Shutdown (ASD) relay, located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.
  3. Verify that all lights and accessories are OFF , and the transaxle shift selector is in PARK . Set the parking brake.
  4. Rotate and hold the ignition switch in the START position. Observe the volt-ampere tester:
    WARNING Do not overheat the starter motor or draw the battery voltage below 9.6 volts during cranking operations.
    If the voltage reads above 9.6 volts, and the amperage draw reads above 280 amps, check for engine seizing or a faulty starter, then go to the starter feed circuit resistance test. If the voltage reads 12.4 volts or greater and the amperage reads 0-10 amps, check for corroded cables and/or bad connections. If the voltage reads below 9.6 volts and the amperage draw reads above 300 amps, the trouble is within the starter.
  5. After the starting system problems have been corrected, verify the battery-s state of charge, and charge the battery if necessary. Disconnect all of the testing equipment and connect the ASD relay. Start the vehicle several times to assure the problem was corrected.

The following test will require a voltmeter, which is capable of accuracy to within 0.1 volt.

CAUTION The ignition and fuel systems must be disabled to prevent engine start while performing the tests.
  1. Disable the ignition and fuel systems by disconnecting the Automatic Shutdown (ASD) relay, located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment.
  2. With all wiring harnesses and components properly connected, perform the following:

    Fig. Testing the battery connection resistance

    1. Connect the negative (-) lead of the voltmeter to the negative battery post, and the positive (+) lead to the negative battery cable clamp. Rotate and hold the ignition switch in the START position. Observe the voltmeter. If voltage is detected, correct the poor contact between the cable clamp and battery post.

    2. Connect the positive (+) lead of the voltmeter to the positive battery post, and the negative (-) lead to the positive battery cable clamp. Rotate and hold the ignition switch key in the START position while observing the voltmeter. If voltage is detected, correct the poor contact between the cable clamp and battery post.
    3. Connect the negative lead of the voltmeter to the negative (-) battery terminal, and the positive lead to the engine block near the battery cable attaching point. Rotate and hold the ignition switch in the START position. If the voltage reads above 0.2 volt, correct the poor contact at the ground cable attaching point. If the voltage reading is still above 0.2 volt after correcting the poor contact, replace the negative ground cable with a new one.

    4. Connect the positive (+) voltmeter lead to the starter motor housing and the negative (-) lead to the negative battery terminal. Hold the ignition switch key in the START position. If the voltage reads above 0.2 volt, correct the poor starter to engine ground.
    5. Connect the positive (+) voltmeter lead to the positive battery terminal, and the negative lead to the battery cable terminal on the starter solenoid. Rotate and hold the ignition key in the START position. If the voltage reads above 0.2 volt, correct the poor contact at the battery cable to the solenoid connection. If the reading is still above 0.2 volt after correcting the poor contact, replace the positive battery cable with a new one.
    6. If the resistance tests did not detect feed circuit failures, replace the starter motor.

Hope this helps.

How do i remove the ignition swicth from a 2004 chevy siverado 1500


The procedure to remove the ignition switch is
  1. Start by disconnecting you negative battery cable.
  2. Wait at least 1 minute to disable your airbag system.
  3. Remove the airbag from the steering wheel, it's retained by a couple bolts on the back of the steering wheel.
  4. Disconnect the wires to it, and set it aside.
  5. Remove the clip that is above the lock nut for the steering wheel, then remove the lock nut.
  6. You need a steering wheel puller to pull the steering wheel off. After you remove the steering wheel, you should have access to the turn signal switch.

2007 Chevy Classic Crew Cab tried to overheat in traffic for the first time. I have 48000 miles.


Your vehicle should never over heat regardless of age. Your thermostat and radiator cap will however become tired and will need to be replaced. The coolant in your engine should also be replaced as the PH level will rise and this will eat away at your radiator.
As for your brakes squealing, they may need to be replaced. There are little springs on your front brakes that will contact your rotor and these are intended to let you know that you have 10% left.
