Haven't been checking in here for quite awhile, but now have an issue I
didn't see brought up already that's exactly like mine. There's been other
"no start" posts but mine is confusing. I have my "message center" blinking
at me with various warnings now, along with an ABS light that comes on after
several hundred feet the majority of the time ( ABS stopping prob. recall
already done - this one does NOT affect stopping, ABS function, etc...) but,
that's another problem.
What's happening now, along with the bouncing gas gauge/low fuel message, is
my SECURITY light will come on after starting the truck and stay on. So
far, it hasn't changed the operation of the truck while driving, but now I'm
wondering. Every few days, the truck now refuses to start (no security
light on). It seems to catch, but as soon as you release the key, it dies.
You can do this 50 times with no sputter or indication it wants to keep
running. Then, after sitting for several minutes, it will fire and run
smooth like no problem. No smell of fuel or smoke. No stored codes (for
anything; ABS, fuel gauge or security) show up. Suspicions are the security
system (does it cut fuel?), lack of fuel (pump finally cutting out - but why
never once it starts?) or ignition cut-out (but it does kick and act like
it's running until key is released).
Any help would be appreciated, since it's making me second-guess my 30+
years loyalty to Chevys.
PS: My son, a BMW tech, thinks it might be a crank sensor hit or missing?
