I accidentally logged out on mine, and everything but Key Fob was available, I had the call On Star and reset the password. As stated earlier, the subscription expired to be the problem, I believe my 2015 will expire next year. As it is now, I have a problem with it saying I have a driving range of 105 miles.....tank full or empty, 105 miles ?

Beer Belly replied to Dersch's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraNot sure thats from the Car Wash.....don't those things rotate front to back ?......those scratches look like top to bottom movement like putting something in the bed.
I'm done working on vehicles, I won't even fill the Washer Tank. The truck has a one year Bumper to Bumper since I had it Certified as part of buying out the Lease in December, and I did mention the Battery is between the Bumpers, and also understand it is a wear item, so I wasn't gonna push too hard. I will also express that I told them multiple times to "check the Starter, there is a secondary issue", when I get the customer survey
So, finally after having my truck for days, they are replacing the Starter, which I told them from the get go they should look at. They say it has a "Flat Spot"......I'm betting this will resolve the issue. Have been driving a 2019 Silverado.....all I can say is, I miss my 2015 Sierra.
Going to pick up my truck today. It would start on the 4th or 5th attempt. After they diagnosed a Battery, which I argued was not the problem and they should check possibly the starter, I reluctantly paid for a new Battery only to have the issue within hours. They had the truck 3 days, and replaced the Starter saying there was a "Flat Spot"......something tells me (fingers crossed) this will be the answer.
Dropped the truck off and got a 2019 Silverado loaner (like my truck better.....when it starts). I was talking to the service writer and mentioned "there's gotta be a bad connection somewhere, or maybe bad Starter, maybe do a Starter draw test ?"....he said "Did you ever think it could be a bad Alternator ?".....I looked at him with a puzzled look......"How would a bad Alternator cause an intermittent no start ?".....no answer, but his attitude got a little nasty after that exchange. They will have the truck till Monday at the earliest.
I brought the truck to the dealer to have the Battery replaced ($167), as they diagnosed it as "on it's way" and why I have an intermittent no start on first turn of the key. I ran a few errands without any restart issues and was feeling confident. I went to pick up the Wife from work, and.........nothing.......tried again.....nothing, called the service writer and left a message that the truck is dead in the driveway. Tried to start again, and on the fifth attempt, fired right up. Service writer said to bring it in, but I was already on the road going to work. I will be dropping it off this morning, unless they give away my Loaner. He said " I guess it wasn't the Battery and you have a secondary issue"......those were my exact words when I first brought it in.......I'm guessing they won't find anything and hand me back the keys......time will tell.
Thanks for the replies. Replacing the Battery next weekend (unless it totally goes first), just as everyone stated, it needs to be done anyhow, and if the problem rears it's ugly head again, I eliminated one possible cause.
