Hey. Soooo my car won't...
Hey. Soooo my car won't start. I thought it was the battery but my tester says the batteries fine. It'll turn on but won't crank and turn over. Any idea what that means?? I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL. Battery is good everything is good. Could it be the starter switch

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

wow not many people have those, I would check voltage at starter while someone has it in start position on both positive wires and check ground and loose bolts,
