Customer Question
Hi! My 2000 Chevy...

Hi! My 2000 Chevy 2500 has no power when I put my key in and turn to the first position. This happened out of the blue, I previously had the ignition cylinder replaced so I think it is something in the circuit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It is consistent. It never turns on. The battery is good, and there are no sounds made when I attempt to turn over the engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Chevy?

2500 Silverado LS

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

I am. I checked all the fuses

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

I also checked the battery, along with the starter solenoid.

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.

Nothing at all anywhere on the truck is powering up?
