2005 avalanche and the...

2005 avalanche and the car started and the emergency brake light (brake was not pushed)came on and service 4 WD message. I shut the car off, unplugged positive side of battery for 5 minutes, cleared the codes with computer and avalanche will not even turn over now. trying to get home at this point but need the car to start. thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

Could that cause the car not to start? When I changed the brakes it looked fine but did not check today.

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

Yes, disconnected the battery and cleared any codes with computer

So those codes do not help us, those are codes for the speakers.

When you turn the key on, do you see the check engine light?

found fuse for ignition burned up changed it but still will not start
Is there damage to the fuse block? Wiring damage under the fuse block?
Ask Your Own GM Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Thanks for help
Ok, which exact fuse was it?
Ask Your Own GM Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
40amp ignition fuse under hood
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Never seen that blow out before thinking starter or other issues

Well that fuse does feed the starter, so a faulty starter solenoid or the wiring to the solenoid will take that fuse out. That fuse also feeds part of the ignition switch which is why you noticed those lights. If your starter is getting power on the smaller terminal with the key in crank then your starter has indeed failed. They are common enough for this on these engines.

Thanks for backup thought but put that in 3 years ago. Guess parts are weak these days thanks again
Just double check wiring first, I would hate for you to replace a starter to find it’s just a wiring issue to the starter or under the steering column.
