2001 blazer won't start

Asked by Aug 12, 2016 at 11:04 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4-Door 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A couple months ago I had the starter replaced.
After being out of town for a week I come home
and the car won't start. When I say it won't start I
mean it doesn't click or crank when the key turns
Not a sound. Replaced the battery which was
about shot but same result

Check all connections at battery and starter,if good,the new starter may be bad.


Do you have headlights and all of the accessories? I assume it is an automatic transmission. If so try setting the park brake and put it in neutral and then see if it cranks over, if not then a voltage test will have to be performed at the starter, the large terminal will have battery voltage on it at all times, the small terminal will only have power when the key is turned to the crank position, if all of this checks good then the starter has quit, if you don't have both powers then you may have a bad safety switch or ignition switch. This is assuming that the wiring is in working order.
