Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Jimmy will not turn over. All of the lights come
on, I can hear the fuel pump, but when I turn the
key, not a sound. Any suggestions before j spend a
crap load of money to try fixing it?

Check your relay center located under the hood, possible bad ignition fuse or starting relay, both are low cost repairs.

It could also be the starter itself. Have someone gently tap the starter with a ball peen hammer while you try turning the engine over. If it starts, replace the starter.
