Start but no crank


Asked by Jan 22, 2016 at 10:08 AM about the 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Standard Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought this 94 chevy cheyenne 1500
single cab shortbed truck and it starts in
neutral instead of park but it's a pain to get it
to start we got it started a couple of times
but now we can't start it for nothing when
you put the key in and turn it on everything
comes on like it should but when you turn to
crank the alternator doesn't even try to turn

The alternator does not start the engine, the starter does. I think your neutral safety switch is out of adjustment.


Where would the neutral saftey switch be located at I looked it up and couldn't find it and I also found a wire that connects to the side of the transmission underneath and it was in shreds I think that might be part of the problem as well


Well I did some research and my year model and make it doesn't have a nuetral saftey switch
