ENVOY WONT START

Asked by Dec 10, 2017 at 10:10 PM about the 2004 GMC Envoy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Good Evening

I have a GMC Envoy. 2004 is the year to be exact and it is an STL model.
This morning I started my Truck, drove it from the front of my building to the
back to
clean it out and up to get a detail. Anywho, I parked it, turned it off to unload
the back,
came back to move it to the driveway in preparation to leave:

1st thing I noticed is that my remote was not working. so after fidgeting with it
for a
few seconds, I ran up to get my 2nd key (w/its own #2 on the back of the
factory
Remote itself) But this yielded the same; nothing! So, I went ahead and tired
both
keys in the ignition and although both lit the dashboard lights and gauges, it
did not
start my truck. (neither key! After several attempts) Then I replaced the
remote
battery; Nothing changed. Then I disconnected the cables from the vehicle
battery
itself; yep...still nothing! I did some research and found that I my have
somehow
activated Theft Mode somehow, so I also attempted to reset the FOB's... But
guess
what, the Windows, Door locks and Light dont work either. So after pushing
the truck
into the parking spot in the back, I was manually locking the doors. I got to
the rear
drivers side door (leaning over from the inside of the truck) and locked it.
BUT THEN,
the drivers seat starting moving to a memory setting by itself! I was wowed
by that to
say the least. I then tried the lock button on the remote AND bahdahbing; it
worked! I
started the truck too! All back to normal right! Wrong!! ...lol...(gotta laugh) @
minutes
later, it happened again! I have read it could my ignition switch or my starter
or my
alternator or my blahblahblah!

I am so frustrated ...so if you have any clues, suggestions or advice that you
could
offer...
... I AM ALL EARS!

2008 Envoy Denali. Stalled out while driving. Wouldn't start back (wouldn't even crank). Wouldn't come out of park. I've replaced the key switch, battery, and starter. Still having problems.

I have a 2003 Envoy with a lot of the same issues as MaxVelvet. I know my issue is the back gate / security system. If my truck will not start and I open the back gate and it will start with no hesitation. Also I have had off and on issues with the dash lights and gauges. The truck will run fine but all dash lights are on, gauge needles ie battery fuel... do not move. The radio does not come on and windows do not work. But if I open the back gate all is good. I haven't figured out EXACTLY what the issue is but I'm close MaxVelvet, Have you figured out your issue yet?
