Chevy Silverado won't start.

Asked by Apr 20, 2017 at 08:17 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 Ext. Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving to work this morning stopped at a gas
station. Came back to my truck, attempt to start it
one click and completely dead. No accessory lights,
no noise, like someone completely stole the battery.
One of the lovely gas station attendents hooked it
up to his 2500. Which got the accessory lights to
turn on, can hear the solenoid click but no such
luck on starting it. Wondering if it could be a bad
ground, completely dead battery? I mean when it's
about to be jumped the solenoid is clicking so I
don't think it's the starter. Never had any issues
starting it.

It could be all of that, it should have started with a jump. But if the battery has a short in it, there wouldn't be enough charge to turn over the starter. Not to rule the starter out. Should have the battery checked out first, if all is good with it, then look at the starter. Also check the battery connections, may be corroded, and the battery cables to see if there in good shape, no visible corrosion at the connector ends.
