1997 GMC Sonoma 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 124000 miles
when you turn your key to the on positioin but do not crank it over, a few things happen. Your fuel injector turns on, there are about 5 or 6 lights on your instrument panel that come on ( air bag, engine light, beeps start.) And you should be able to apply the foot brake and shift into any gear you want, even when truck is not started. After a few incidences when my truck failed to start then started after a while, I noticed that sometimes these things do not occur when I turn the key on. But then all these things would work and it would start instantly. I say this because i've weeded out the possibility of a fuse. It's to the point that the first thing I do is turn the key to see if these things come on. If they don't I know the truck will not start no matter how long I crank it. But it usually does eventually. Well, it's now been 2 days and it will not start and fuel injector is not pushing fuel to engine, and lights on insturment panel still not on. It is important to understand that it's not something just with the fuel injector, but all these things are connected by one problem. I originally thought it was the ignition switch where the key goes in. But whatever it is I need to know. I don't want to replace 20 things. Just the right thing first. What could it be?
have the same problem?
