Customer Question
My chevy uplander 2008...

My chevy uplander 2008 wont start, just a click I hear not even engine starting. I brought it to gm service and they changed spark plugs and those wires but when I borught it home and try to start it it doesnt start again. Just hear a click again. They say it is not the battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

A month ago I always start it at the morning by pushing the gas pedal but before doing that I can hear the engine. But now just a click

This sounds like the starter relay clicking just the one time. Try grabbing the starter relay and wiggling it in the socket to feel if it's loose and if so see if it cranks over now. If so and/or it was loose try a new relay and also feel if the new one is also loose. If so, and the problem persists, the socket could be worn out.
