There is a starter relay. Do you have a volt meter or test light?

moose,
are you there?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

The starter relay is in the fuse box under the hood. Remove the relay and test all the pins, one should be powered. Hold the key in the start position, 2 pins should now have power. Check that.

Crank fuse 17 under the hood is it good and does it have power when trying to start?

doers what have power when i try to start it?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

At the starter relay if you jump across pins 30 and 87 with the key on, will it crank and start?

I just tried to start the car with the relay installed, i heard some clicking noises but not from the relay. From the starter possibly?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

If you are hearing clicking from the starter but it is not cranking this means the wires at the starter are making poor connection not getting 12.6 volts or the starter motor is faulty. You may of had a poorly seated relay as well which is why your now getting clicking at the starter.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

When i pulled the relay i didn't pay attention to how it came out, i assumed i would only go in one way. i dont know what pins are 30 & 87. is there a certain way the starter relay goes in?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

It will only fit in one way, there should be a pin diagram on the relay.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
There is a diagram it fits both ways.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
what pin numbers should have power?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

30 should have power all the time.

86 power when trying to start

85 ground when trying to start

87 is the signal wire to the starter if the relay is working.
