yes, starter checked too. (i think the hubs checked it) would have been the next logical step!

#787 of 802 1995 Chevy Tahoe NO START

So after fueling up I got in my Tahoe turned the key to "Start" In doing so all the lights on the dash (Turn Signals, Brights, ABS, Check Engine etc.) light up but there is no response. The starter does not click. However there is a random clicking sound under the dash.
Prior to all this, the fuel gage was not working properly, and the speedometer was off by about 10mph. Also the ignition would turn to accessory without the key needing to be in.
From what I am reading on this site I am expecting either the ignition switch, or the starter. Something crazy electrical is going on.

Sounds like your battery is bad, or has a ton of corrosion on the battery terminals causing a high resistance.

I would start by checking the ignition system. I had a 2000 Intrigue that did the same thing. I had to replace the ignition switch.
#790 of 802 92 Trooper without spark
Mar 25, 2011 (9:43 pm)
Short story, simple problem(?), limited references...
92' Isuzu Trooper,
Electrical problems (no spark),
(originally belonged to my younger sister)
for a couple of years the speedometer and odometer would suddenly quit while in motion, then come back after turning off the car and restarting (sometimes), and occasionally had a starting problem for her (p/s pump leaking on the alternator)
I bought it from her for $500 the beginning of last December. The starting issue increased in frequency even with a new AND Clean alternator.
-Put it in a shop the Last week of December.... and it's stayed there nearly 4mths... A week after arriving there it stopped starting consistently.
-Crank sensor was bad (replaced)
-has no spark
-replaced good ignition control module and good ecm
-has no spark
-checked all wiring (supposedly), connections and relays
-no spark and they gave up
I have copies of their trouble shooting trees and flowcharts with notes - if you or anyone you know is familiar with troopers (and/or) this list of symptoms I would really like to get back on the road soon
#791 of 802 96 explorer no electric

my friends 96 explorer would not start last week and would not stay running after removing jumper cables alternator was replaced and now has no power when you turn on the key no lights, starter response, or power window/doors. will jumpstart and continue running under its own power as long as you do not turn it off. battery and both terminal ends were recently replaced and all fuses are good
. need pointers of wher to look next
#792 of 802 Engine won't start after removing air cleaner housing
Aug 01, 2011 (4:12 am)
I was working on my truck yesterday (2001 Ford Explorer sport trac) trying to find a leak in the AC vacuum supply line. I removed the air cleaner housing & outlet tube, unplugged MAF and crankcase ventilation tube (to get to the reservoir globe). I found and fixed a leak in the AC supply line. When I had the air cleaner housing off yesterday, I had run the car for a few min to check if there was vacuum in the AC supply lines. The car started running rough then, so I shut it off. Put everything back together, but now the engine won't start. Battery and Alt are new. Oddest thing. Can't figure out what I might have done. Any ideas???
