1994 Chevy K1500 Help!


Asked by Aug 24, 2016 at 04:21 AM about the 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't know much about cars, so I need help
determining why my friend's 1994 Chevy K1500
won't turn on. It was involved in a minor accident
with a pole, where the left front end was crunched,
and the pole dented almost all the way down the
left side of the truck.

The door may be salvageable, and dents pulled
out, etc., but the window shattered. Long story

The original door was pulled off before realizing it
could be fixed, but in the process of gutting the
door, two of the wires touched each other and
shorted out (pretty sure). They were taped up
pretty quickly after that, but the damage was done.
What damage exactly? We don't know.

It worked just fine before that, bit since the door
was gutted, the truck now refuses to start. How
could components of the door effect the truck as a

The owner's mannual suggested it might be due to
the truck's internal system that shuts off to protect
itself until the problem is fixed(?) But, like I said,
that doesn't make much sense to me.

We only know of one Fuze box in this particular
type of truck, and all fuzes seem okay.

So, based on that, does anyone know what the
problem could be, and how to fix it? If it IS because
those wires touched, how do we solve that
