Customer Question
2007 Chevrolet Suburban I had...
2007 Chevrolet Suburban I had a faulty starter would only crank every now and then I would have to go hit the starter. I replaced the starter and now it won't crank what so ever locks aren't working either not on the door controls or on the remote control. Almost like if it was stuck In theft mode but I know it's not bc the lights goes off.

If you take your 12 volt test light at at the starter are you getting 12 volts on both the larger battery wire as well as the smaller start wire?

Yeah I'm getting enough voltage

The starter relay gets its crank signal from the PCM once it reads the key, are you getting the crank signal at the starter relay with the key in the crank position?

See the wiring diagram in the link below for testing reference. Start with making sure you have power at fuse 65 .

Lock fuse ?
Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

The only fuse that can effect the starter is the Fuse 65 in the under hood fuse panel. Usually if the system can not read the Key , the BCM will set a fault code and or codes, have you scanned the system to see if there are any fault codes setting?
