20 Most Recent 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Questions & Answers


In the first part of your post, are you saying, you have to jump starter relay in order to get it to start? I looked at info for 96 c1500, 5.0L engine. If I understand you correctly, check the control side of relay, left side in the diagram. It needs voltage and ground both. Ground is a chassis ground, voltage comes from crank position of ignition switch and is wired through the clutch or neutral switch, depending on the tranny.

When the key switch is off and the engine is not running, do you have power to the coil ? Could be a problem with the key switch.

check your connections on the starter solenoid, the wires on the solenoid if they become loose will cause this problem and you will have juice to the other components. also you probrably unhooked the battery before installing the trans. so recheck the connections on the battery for a proper ground and positive hookup, clean these connection to be sure.

check 12V at pump terminal when on/cranking

hear/feel pump operation (if external to tank)

if low pressure (carby) disconnect fuel line and observe flow. If high pressure (FI) connect fuel pressure guage and observe pressure. Check fuel filter while doing all this. Filters are the source of many problems that start people messing with fuel pumps.
