sometimes won't start just goes dark when key turned to start. everything else works

Asked by Feb 09, 2013 at 01:49 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet Express Cargo G3500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

checked all wires to starter and trans, even tried jumping starter terminals then out of nowhere it starts

1 Answer

You haven't cleaned the positive terminal properly. theres a ring lug with a bolt holding to the lead clamp. This is an important one. Also the ground lug has both ends, one going to the block and another going to the engine. turn a hose on it all, then wirebrush all connections. and wazaa, you'll have a new buggy.
