Asked by Jul 07, 2018 at 02:17 PM about the 2002 GMC Envoy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 GMC Envoy  I dont think I was clear about my question a few minutes
ago.   It would not start, I could get it to crank but not start, everything works.  
So I started with the fuel pump, fuel filter and starter, oh and battery and
ignition switch.  Same except one very strange thing when I hook the battery
up the startewr immediately engages.  So now I cant hook up the battery.  
What did I do wrong to make the starter get a life of its own, where does the
starter get energy to start from, battery obviously.  What unengages it when I
start the car I guess is the better question?

If it was not doing that before replacing the starter I would say you have a wire crossed when you put wires back on.

You do realize that the two wires are of different sizes and it is impossible to wire them backwards?


Ok then try tapping on starter with a hammer sounds like the starter drive is stuck
