Customer Question
When I turn on...

When I turn on the ignition switch, all of the gauges work, as do the warning lights. The engine will not turn over, and the service engine soon light comes on very dull.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

No.

Mechanic's Assistant: Not a problem. You can work with the Mechanic to figure that out. What is the make/model/year of your car?

2004 gmc envoy 4x4 with the 325 ci engine.

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

Yes. I have checked the relays and all are snuggly in place. I replaced the starter, and ignition relays. No work.

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

I cannot shift out of park to move the car.
