All right to sum this issue I'm having up....I turn the key and it cranks.I do have spark.However the fuel pump doesn't engage.Not even to prime.Have replaced the keyed tumbler in column as well as ignition switch.Have removed all the after market crap that previous owner installed.So now is bone stock.Have checked relay and fuse.Both are fine how ever relay does not click.Have bench tested the fuel pump.It does work on the bench fine.Have considered adding a backup harness to the fuel pump.(relayed of course.)To engage the pump manually.How ever before I do this, (have done same before in a 90 camaro)I'd like to try changing the oil pressure switch and or sending unit.Have been to auto parts store and seen the switch.How ever CAN NOT locate the blessed thing on the engine any where.Could someone please give me a location and or explanation? Thanx.....Bill

98 blazer won't even crank. The key on you can hear the pump working, also the starter contact relay under hood is engaging, all lights and dash lights come on, chimes work, battery fully charged, The security system has been suposedly removed by some so called mechanic shop. tried to giggle the shifter in the park position and also the neutral position. open for any and all suggestions.....

Starter. I had one do this to me years ago. The bendix will engage, but if the brushes are badly worn, the starter motor will not turn. Most auto parts stores will test it if you bring it in.

Thanks, Your exactly right. I performed the repairs on sun eve. The selonoid was bad. after doing voltage tests I removed the starter and tapped on the side....It worked.. I should have trusted my first instinct about this whole thing.... Thanks again

"Ok here is what happens to mine and please tellme if yours did the same thing. If it sits overnight and I go out to start it, it turns over but doesnt start. If i wait about 10 minute sometimes more and turn it over sometimes it will start sometimes not. It took me over an hour to get it started last week, but once it is started it will turn over everytime after that with no problems. I just want to be sure that you had the same issues before i install a remote start. Because if my problem is different it would be a waste of money. Thank you"
Hi, this is exactly what my 2001 blazer is doing. It just broke 104k miles. I am a college student and can not afford to fix alot of things that may or may not be wrong with it. Mine came with a remote started. Did you ever figure this out? If you did you would be helping me out a Ton!! Some have said they think it is the distributor cap, but I have no idea. Please let me know, thank you.

I had the exact same problem with mine a week ago. I was stuck in the parking lot of Fry's and couldn't get it started so I had to have it towed home and then to a mechanic. The problem turned out to be the positive battery terminal connector. It had gotten too corroded and wasn't supplying enough power to start it. But it was acting exactly like yours. I was very surprised that that was all it was. I was expecting some expensive solution. Luckily my mechanic is pretty honest

Unless you have AAA or Allstate Motor Club, and received a free tow, you received an expensive lesson to learn that you should keep your battery terminals clean. But, it could a have been far worse because you are fortunate enough to know a mechanic that is honest. I wish I knew one.
Honest mechanics are hard to find these days. An auto repair shop with honest mechanics are usually bankrupt within the first five years of opening business.

Having the same issues and even replaced my fuel pump earlier. My 4x4 was acting up and I was told it was a transfer case issue. It's worked fine ever since. I even have had my remote start removed thinking it was that. This damn truck has so many different quirks.
