I have a 1997 Sonoma with roughly 50,000 miles one it. The problem is
that the truck is having a hard tine starting. When the key is turned
to the "on" position normally the truck (as with most models) will go
through a self check meaning all the dash lights will light up, the
fuel pump kicks on, and so forth. Well every now and then that self
check doesn't come on at all. The battery is still good because if I
were to turn the key to the "start" postilion the engine will turn
over with no problem however with no fuel pump or any other
electronics running the truck just won't start. Any suggestions?
A 50,000 mile tune up and overhall was completed over the summer with
no problems. In the middle of fall a new battery was purchased that
had 625 CCAs which is 100 more then the previous. A few weeks after
is when all this began. The problem seems to happen more often when
the Temperature is between 40-50, but not limited to that range.
