check out your starter relay in the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM). your key doesn't go to the starter anymore. It goes to the Power Control Module (PCM) the PCM sends a signal to the TIPM. the TIPM sends a signal to the starter relay and then the power goes to the starter solenoid. You need to find out where you lost the circuit at. Or, you could have a bad starter. check to see

tabacsko515515 said the stoplight work. tail lights work on the same brown wire as the license light. you talked about all the lights that do work but you didn't say anything about the license plate lights.

year, make, model, engine... needed for wiring. after the engine has come up to normal operating temperature (around 200 degrees F) are both of the hoses to the heater core hot?

if your truck was running okay before then I would double check the work that you did. Gap the plugs at .035" Make sure the spark plug wires are on the correct towers on the cam.

have you done any checking with a scanner to see what the engine is doing? egr can cause a problem if some of the ports are plugged up and only a couple cylinders are getting all the exhaust gas. Try unplugging the vacuum line to the egr valve and plug it off. test drive and see if it makes any difference. Oxygen sensor can also cause a problem like this if it is stuck lean or rich. Unplug th


In Forum: GMC Trucks

if the p0302 is the only code and you have done the plug, coil and injector you should look and compare to a known good cylinder, what the electrical wave forms look like. If the injector looks like another injector and the coil looks like another coil then you may have a mechanical problem with that cylinder. you may want to do a cylinder leakdown test and see if your valves are fully closing.
