Default 2013 Won't Start

Ok guys, need a little help here. My 2013 LML with less than 1,200K will not start. I drove about 5 miles, filled up at a store that I had filled up at before, and took off for about another 20 miles or so, mostly along I-95. When I stopped, I went into a store for 10-15 minutes, when I went to start my truck after that, I cranked it, let off the key a little too soon, and it didn't start. I immediately tried again, it cranked for a little longer than usual, but eventually fired up. Drove back the 25 miles to where I am staying, let it idle for 15-20 minutes then shut it off, now it only cranks. I checked the battery connections, the one on the passenger side was loose on the positive terminal so I tightened that up, but still nothing. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I don't feel like calling Chevrolet because I am liable to say something about someone's mama.

Erik

You didn't "gas it" by mistake?

That or gelled fuel would be my first thoughts.

It's about 47 degrees, and if I put gas, it's because the store put gas in the diesel pump.

Pump the fuel at the filter and see if it has pressure.

Doesn't feel like it does.

Didn't someone post up recently about a kinked fuel line somewhere?

Well, I bit the bullet and called roadside assistance. They hauled it to the dealership, I'll let you all know the deal as soon as I find something out.

Well, I picked up the truck today and they said nothing was wrong with it. It had two old codes, but neither had to do with a no start condition. They said it started up every single time for them. They test drove it, shut it off, re-started with zero problems. That's about my luck.

That's the worst feeling ever. Hope you get it figured out!

So, after being told all is well. I'm sitting here in a parking lot on my way home and the damn thing won't start again. This is absolutely ridiculous.

I'd record a quick 30 sec video of it to show the dealer. Like Bobo said, being told by the dealer that it can't "duplicate" the problem sucks. Good luck and keep us posted.

Check all fuel lines. Does the fuel filter have prime? Also not sure if gm vehicles are the same but a buddy of mine has a armada and somethig happened with the key and it would only crank like that. Tried the backup key and bam truck started.

Sorry to hear that, looks like they will be getting a poor warranty survey. We havent had any issues like that with the LML or LGH, the LMM trucks had a security issue that was fixed with programming. What codes did they say it had in history?
