Truck no crank no start issue.... Again...

Asked by Jan 09, 2018 at 06:02 PM about the GMC Sierra 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 86 gmc sierra is acting up again. Just got a
new starter in last week... now this! Was driving
this morning and first I smelled something
electrical burning... Turned off stereo and heater
went away . noticed maybe a little hesitation on
acceleration ... Turned it off and back on twice at
the gas station and one more stop. Drove about 5
miles and it started hitching like when I had to
replace my ignition control module a few months
back. Not quite that bad though. Then noticed I
was super hot..about 260. Pulled over, turned her
off poppped the hood checked around didn't even
seem to be bubbling over or anything. Got back in
to start it and nothing. No accessory lights and no
start. Headlights work. Tested battery . full charge.
Won't do anything from there but will crank by
arcing starter. No start though. I'm at a loss.
