Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, allows the fuel pump to prime the system.
How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes?

How do you reset bcm in a 2005 trailblazer? Took original out then put it back in. Never started it with replacement in it as my original problem was the fuel pump


Here you go have fun...
For those vehicles that use a BCM, the BCM can learn the resistance value of the existing key by using the relearn process. In order for the vehicle to start, the BCM (as well as the Passkey module in other vehicles) must identify the resistor pellet in the key, then the BCM sends a password to the PCM. If this password matches the password stored in the PCM, the system enables fuel delivery. So you can see that if either the BCM or PCM are replaced, a relearn procedure is necessary. This same relearn procedure can be used if an ignition key with a different resistance value is used to replace the existing key. Before beginning the relearn, make sure there is a fully charged battery in the vehicle, and both the BCM and PCM are properly powered up and in communication with each other. Now you're ready to initiate the relearn procedure.

1. First, insert the ignition key and turn the ignition switch to the "On" position (Do not start the engine). Leave the switch on for 11 minutes. The security light may flash or be on steady during this 11 minute period. Make sure the light is no longer on or flashing before proceeding to #2 .
2. Turn the ignition switch off for 30 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position (as in step #1) for 11 minutes again.
4. Turn the ignition switch off for another 30 seconds.
5. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position for 11 minutes a third time.
6. Turn the ignition switch off for 30 seconds one final time.
7. Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position one final time and wait 30 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine starts and runs normally, the relearn is complete. If the engine does not start, check for trouble codes and address them before attempting the relearn procedure again.
Sorry kinda long but it is what it is.
Have a good one.

Why won't it start?


You have to have relearn done .
?€¢
A 10 minutes procedure which requires a Tech 2 and a techline terminal.


?€¢
A 30 minutes procedure which does not require the use of any tools.

10 Minute Learn Procedure
Tools Required ?€¢
Tech 2


?€¢
Techline terminal with current SPS (Service Programming System) software

  1. Connect the Tech 2 to the vehicle.
  2. Select "Request Information" under "Service Programming".
  3. Disconnect the Tech 2 from the vehicle and connect it to a techline terminal.
  4. On the techline terminal, select "Theft Module Re-Learn" under "Service Programming".
  5. Disconnect the Tech 2 from the techline terminal and connect it to the vehicle.
  6. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  7. Select "VTD Re-Learn" under "Service Programming".
  8. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
  9. Observe the SECURITY telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF (the vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock?"¢ Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK).
  10. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  11. Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the password).
  12. With the Tech 2 (scan tool), clear any DTCs.
30 Minute Learn Procedure
  1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
  3. Observe the SECURITY telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes ( the vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock?"¢ Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK).
  6. Important: The vehicle learns the Passlock?"¢ Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
  7. Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the Passlock?"¢ Sensor Data Code and/or password).
  8. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed (history DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles).

Start a Camry after it ran completely out of gas. Does the fuel pump fill the line when tank is filled & key turned?


Your fuel pump is located inside the gas tank and every time you turn on the ignition switch the fuel pump will start and pressurize the fuel line for a regular starting cycle. But, since your fuel lines are totally empty. I would turn on the ignition for a 20 second period. then turn it off for a few minutes to let the system fuel system reset and then turn the key back on for the same amount of time and do this for at least 4 times. Each time you turn on the key if you have waited long enough to allow the fuel system to reset. This will in the end fill the fuel lines and fuel rail on the engine and then you should be able to crank the engine and start ok. do not crank the engine until after you have cycled the ignition key about four times and wait about 2 minutes in-between cycles.
Have a nice day, regards, Dennis

I lost the key & transmitter for my 2004 Envoy. Had a new key made at the GMC dealer. Worked great one time. Tried later and it seems the alarm set itself. Cannot get the alarm to disengage thus...


Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

You either have a bad solenoid on your starter OR a bad ignition switch as these are the only two things that can cause the symptom you describe... I lean to the solenoid first, RARELY does an ignition switch sieze up in the start position but it is a possibility. Several national chain parts stores can test the starter for you (GM starters have the starter solenoid mounted directly to the starter and you need to remove the starter to get to it, so you would take the whole unit in to test it... REMEMBER to disconnect the battery first!)

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...


it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
