silverado won't start hear two clicks now get nothing

Asked by Jan 04, 2016 at 12:14 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Base Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, my husband changes the oil filter like he always does only the truck is
parked on an incline to drain completely.  We also just had the brake line
replaced on the driver side.  All of a sudden he went to turn the key - heard
two clicks and then Nothing.  I mean, NOTHING.  we checked fuses,
cleaned battery terminal, and tried to jump it.  still nothing.  While i was
playing with the key - I could get the beeping sound when the key was
about 3/4 the way in, but not engaged enough to turn the key.  Weird.

Wondering if the knock sensor could be a culprit?  or if there are starter
wires near the brake line that could have been tampered? (starter is on the
other side from replaced line).  Would love some Feedback, y'all!

Not a bad idea to check to see if any wires from the starter was disturbed when installing brake line but it sounds more like a bad starter. Try this have someone tap on starter with a hammer while trying to start vehicle at the same time if vehicle starts replace starter. This way does not always work but most of the time it does so if it does not start still can be the starter.

Also, check your battery connections at the far ends, not just the battery end. Could be a ground problem.
