Asked by Jun 25, 2014 at 01:55 PM about the 1997 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLE 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had a 1997 GMC Jimmy for about a year. It has run well, but just yesterday morning i went to
start the truck, it did not start. What happened was the dashboard lights lit up for a moment, and
the engine started to crank, but it all died within a second. Now the engine wont turn, the dashboard
wont light up, and the key is stuck in the ignition. I took the battery to a service center, its fine.
What I can make out from the info I have read is that it is probably the starter or ignition, or perhaps
an electrical wiring issue, so what is most likely my problem? Thanks in advance.

If no lights light up then you need to jump start it or (worse case scenario) get a new battery
