Could be a few things. Maybe the starter, maybe a short circuit in the battery, maybe even the ignition switch.


asiaspeights' garage Thank you for your answer I appreciate it. I don't think it is the starter because it starts up then it dies after a few seconds.


I had this problem with my 2001 Tahoe. Ended up being a part wishing the fuel pump that failed. Mine ran rough right before it stalled. Hope this helps.


A part inside* the fuel pump. I had to change the whole pump out and never happened again.


Aztahoe I have a 03tahoe it runs for 5 to 10 mins then kills and won't start back till next day I changed everything electric is it the fuel pump also like urs


Check EGR valve, my Tahoe did the same thing. Changed the EGR valve and fixed it right up
