Yes about 2 secs

Chevy Mechanic: cartech, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
Do you have any test equipment that you can test dc voltage to the small purple wire at the starter when trying to start.

Np

No

Chevy Mechanic: cartech, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
I do not believe you have a theft issue as the security would stay on and not go out within a few seconds as it is doing it seems you have a starter or starter circuit issue.

I didnt expect thst since it turns over

Chevy Mechanic: cartech, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago
I'm sorry i mis understood the statement i thought it did not turn over. Being it turns over but don't start it is most likely a bad fuel pump you should be able to here it run in the gas tank for a few seconds when you turn the key on if you do not then the pump is most likely bad.
