My truck will not start by itself.

Asked by Jul 11, 2014 at 06:04 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Chevrolet silveado and my dad put a battery charger on it all night and will
not start by itself. We can jump it off but try to go down the road and it stalls. My truck has
sat for a year and we are trying to get it back on the road. It's a truck.

Take out the battery and alternator and have them tested, it sounds like both of them have failed.

I agree. Could also be dirty/corroded battery connections causing this.

Thank you
