CHEVROLET SILVERADO BATTERY PROBLEM

2003 Chevrolet Silverado • 177,560 miles

03 silverado 1500HD/LT 6.0 will not turn over?
I was driving came to a stop turned left and started to go
then the truck just shut down. I have power to everything
ABS light is on and says to service brake system. Tryed to
read for codes but the code reader just says can not connect to
vehicle. When I turn the key to start nothing not a click click, nothing
I turned the h balancer so it is not locked up. Can you help?

Check the battery and connections first. It sounds like it ran out of battery power to keep systems up.

If it doesn't crank, the battery is probably run down. Measure the battery voltage and holler back. You might try charging it at a slow rate for an hour too, then see if it cranks.

`IF U HAVE PROPER VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY. TEST THE VOLTAGE TO THE STARTER. TRY HOLDING THE KEY IN CRANK POSITION WHYLL SOME1 TAPS THE STARTER WITH A HAMMER.

AHHH! Don't hit the starter, (except out of frustration). They use permanent magnets instead of field coils. They warn against hitting them in the training video because the glue can crack and let the magnets fall off. Then she's junk.

If you want to hit a starter, find a Ford.
