Truck shuts off once put into gear

Asked by Aug 27, 2016 at 08:24 PM about the 1993 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently received my dads truck and I'm trying to
do some TLC on it. Runs great sounds amazing !
Throw it in drive and it shuts off if you don't keep
your foot on the gas. If you keep it in park it runs
like a charm. Then I turned on the defrost and it
shut off just as it did when you put it into gear. Any
helpful hints would be much appreciated
