Won't start

Asked by Aug 29, 2016 at 02:50 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My gfs Chevy traverse won't start. It has always been fine.
She pulled into a parking lot to drop off the kids at
daycare, came back out, and it cranks but won't start. I
went over on my lunch break and tried, still doing it.  
Disconnected the battery for 15 mins and still nothing.
Any info would be great.  She doesn't have nav nor onstar  
just a simple basic vechial.

Do you hear the fuel pump buzz and or prime when you turn the key?

If not, the fuel pump failed, time for a tow.

Actually I didn't listen to it. But I'm sure that would be fine any other suggestions? We have never had any issues with this. She also said she heard a loud buzzing sound when she tried it once but when I looked at it I didn't hear it one bit

has it got gas in it the buzzing could be the pumps running dry, my advice to you is to take your automobile to your local shop and a qualified technician should be able to diagnose the malfunctioning buzzing sound

Fuel pump is good. Compression is good and spark is good. Just won't start. Anymore trouble shooing would be great

My 2018 traverse won’t crank even with a jump start
