2000 Escalade Starting issues any advice?
The past few months I have been having issues when starting my truck. It takes at least 3 to 5 times of turning over until it finally starts. I have replaced the fuel filter and put Sea Foam in my tank thinking that maybe I had dirty fuel injectors. There were a few times that I had to use Starter fluid to get it to start. My next step is to buy a fuel pressure regulator. Any other suggestion as to what could be causing this? Has anyone else had this issue?

No lights are staying on. But now I am having a new issue arise. When I roll up or down my windows the lights flicker so now I'm thinking there might be a short somewhere. And just this evening when I went to start my truck the clock was set at the wrong time. I am hoping that its not a computer issue if that's the case I might as well invest in another Cadi :\

Also even if you replace the bcm its still cheaper then another truck
Here is a parts site www.rockauto.com
Of course this can be a loose or bad ground so check every possibility before making a expensive decision like this
(Ps my radio went black on me tonight as I was driving but I think it's because of my media gateway)
