Dealer did a top engine re-build at 60k and it's back. Stuck piston rings is there excuse now, told me to pour marvels mystery oil in spark plug hole to help eat away carbon. Just keep adding oil and driving.
Triki_Dick replied to Triki_Dick's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have been thinking about this, and I think this may of been a common thing because there is a heat shield over the coil (I think that's the correct name). I took the starter off, and checked the connections, however the exhaust is 2" from the starter, so obviously the heat from the exhaust is effecting the starter. Thanks to the people who have viewed this post, hopefully I can find a solution.
Triki_Dick posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have had this problem for a long time, but it has never bothered me until lately. During the winter, I have no issues, but the summer is a different story. New battery was my first step, installed a Gel Red top. Get in, drive, enjoy your ride but when you get to your destination turn off the truck and BOOM, your screwed. I usually wait about 15 minutes and when I turn the key the truck starts like nothing is wrong. Usually, what I do is get mad, and rattle the battery, and that has made it start. Usually, just opening the hood and cussing has made it start, but that doesn't always work. Well, I just crawled under the truck and took the starter loose in hope I would find a loose connection on the starter. It was tight. For some reason, I have heard a tick, and after it ticks the truck will start. The tick sounds to be coming from close to the battery bay, but I am not sure. So, I wait until it cools off, and it will start right up and drive. Any advice will be appreciated.
Triki_Dick replied to grizzlyrafting's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have the same problem too. I believe it's an exhaust leak, coming from the donut leaving the manifold attaching to the exhaust. You only hear the pinging when its cold, when its warm you can't hear it. I had transmission flushed yesterday and he said there was a pinhole crack that he could't fix because the bolts were too tight. Try that.
BCM, right, that's making this even more complicated. It'd be nice if you could hook this up to a PC and edit it. Just like how you use the DIC to display info on the dash.
The Light Control Module. (I've found that relays etc do not control lights at all, it's the LCM) The LCM tells which lights to be on period!!!!...... Shame it doens't have a serial connector and some simple software available. I'd fix it easily!
M.Cueva, if you have a few mins, how about some info about the LCM. I know it's probably sealed tight, and impossible to get to, however asking questions may get me closer to figuring this out. I have no idea how complex or simple it is, but I'd like to know.
I"m trying to figure out what's causing the fog lights to go off when main beam comes on. I'm thinking, we can buy a $10 relay and replace the stock one with this different one. Also, someone else on here wants fog lights to come on whenever a the lights are on. Either way, I apreaciate you taking the time.
Sweet, I just want to figure out whats triggering what so we can hopefully Modify the problem without having to Splice into too many wires. Thanks
Wire diagrams for the Headlights/dipped and foggs. We're gonna try and figure out how to modify the stock fog settings.
Sweet, I"m going out and getting another battery. I was worried my 145amp altenator wouldn't be able to handle keeping 2 batteries charged. But like you say, it uses the same amount of juice, weather it's from 1 battery or 2. I want this setup so I can play my XM for hours and never worry about flattening the battery.
