Envoy won't start

Asked by Oct 19, 2016 at 09:35 AM about the 2008 GMC Envoy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Envoy, sometimes it doesn't start, but the lights come on. So far, I've got a new battery and put a new starter on my car. I do have an automatic starter on my car, that didn't come with it??

Have you checked the alternator? If your alternator is bad it will not keep the battery charged properly. The battery can have enough juice to turn lights on but not enough to crank the car.
