2006 Chevy Silverado Will Not Start

Asked by TexGun May 05, 2017 at 05:19 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 1LT Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Truck sat idle for a few months this winter and battery went dead.  I recharged the battery.  Truck sounds like it is attempting to start but will not finish cranking.  Any ideas?  Was thinking maybe the battery is not sending enough juice to get the job done...

tried starting it with the charger on it; same result; kind of acts like it is not getting fuel. How do I tell if the fuel pump primed. I have not done anything with the fuel line yet. Thank you for your ideas.


if we could just get more info from the start...put in your search engine > 2006 Chevy Silverado prime fuel pump system
