Customer Question

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yep it spins over fast and hits for a sec

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to fix it myself I work on hotrods etc , I can hear the fuel pump Iin gauge , and the pump on the filter stiffens after a few pumps

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

With the primer pumped uptight, will it make more of an effort to start?

Do you have a scan tool to see the actual and desired fuel pressure while cranking?

Scan tool won't connect to the ecm , I did get it to start a few times after turning the key on and off several times , after it would start I noticed the battery light would stay on , it's having a anti theft issue or some type of electrical issue. The dash board lights will stay on after the key is out and you can turn the blower motor up or down on the ac/ heater controls , I'm trying the 10 min key on turn off for 30sec and repeat sequence to try to reset the alarm code any suggestions would help thank you

After your follow up. You look to have more issues than I think I can resolve not in person. I will opt out and let another try.
