97 GMC Jimmy with 103,500 miles V6 4.3 ~ I've had no trouble with this SUV. I bought gas and a few hours later it had trouble starting. Started real rough. Started driving and almost stalled at the light. I gave it gas and it did not stall. If I started to slow down it seemed like it was going to stall. Got home and changed the air cleaner. It started right up! YAY I thought! I went to drive it and it had trouble starting again and stalled when I put it in reverse. I tried to start it again and I heard kind of like a backfire under the hood, it was not a real loud sound. Now it won't start, it turns over like it will start but it doesn't. I have no dash board lights when I turn the key, no air bag light, no light to tell me to buckle up. I do have head lights and my power windows work.
Thanks for your help!

If you are lacking power to the interior, get a test light and check all underhood fuses. Sounds like you could have a possible stuck open EGR valve, sometimes a littel piece of carbon can get in there and cause it to hang open a littel making it hard to start and wants to stall. The valve is located on the front of the intake manifold
