Truck starts and runs for a second or two then dies


Asked by Dec 04, 2013 at 04:57 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 3 Dr LS 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced fuel pump about a year ago with no problems until now
I just installed a new fuel filter nothing changed still starts and dies I started having some weird electrical issues in the last week before it wouldn't start some of them are auto headlights not working no dome light or cargo light and the word security staying on all the time in my message center its looking like an electrical problem more than fuel any suggestions?

I believe it has something to do with your spark plug, you should also check all the wires going to your battery to make sure there isn't a split,burnt, or a short in your wires. But first replace the spark plug the check your wires. I wish you the best of luck.
