So I have a new code, check engine light did NOT come on, but I have a soft code of P0004, which from what I've found is for the fuel volume regulator control circuit? From my searches it seems like it's common in diesels, but since I have the 4.3l V6, I have absolutely no idea how it might affect my truck, and haven't been able to find anything on how to address it. Last month I had to replace the fuel pump, so I don't know if it would be tied to that or not? Anyone have any ideas or point me where to start looking? 2014 Chevy Silverado 4.3l V6
I scoured through the leveling kit / lift kit threads and didn't find much information on the 2wd trucks. I want to put a 1-1/2" or 2" leveling kit and be able to put a 33-34" (305/70/17, 305/65/17 or 33/12.5/17) tire without rubbing on the stock rims. What's the best way to go to get these larger tires to fit?
So my passenger air bag sensor, or passenger presence module, that goes under the seat and detects if a person is there or not, which turns the air bag on or off, needs to be replaced. Anyone know if there's a way to turn the air bag on all the time? The part itself is almost over $400 and then with labor will easily but a couple hundred more. I have a 2014 1500 LT, and I'd prefer to just turn the airbag so its on all the time if there's an easy and cost effective way to do that, or if anyone knows where I can get the module for a better price and how to replace it? I haven't been able to find much info anywhere. Part # 23175692
That was the # Tasca gave me, seat cushion comes with it since its included in the calibration process. There isnt an option to turn the airbag on all the time, Im looking for an aftermarket module. They make them for.previous modules but I havent seen any for the newer generations yet.
So I've rebuilt my 2014 Silverado that was in a front end collision and repaired everything except one last thing. I'm getting error code B0081 and my airbag light is on, saying that the passenger presence sensor (weight sensor in passenger seat) has an issue. In the front end collision, there wasn't a passenger in the front seat and the passenger side airbag did not deploy. So I don't know why I have an error with it. So to fix it, I either need to: 1. replace the sensor ($250-$300) 2. find a way to repair/recalibrate the current sensor 3. find a way to bypass the sensor and have the passenger airbag on all the time Other than option 1, does anyone know how to do #2 or #3?
So I went to aim my right headlight to raise it a little, and the dang thing just spins and the headlight won't adjust on my aftermarket projector. Does anyone know if I can easily fix the adjuster or do I pretty much just have to get a new headlight?
For those of you that need to reset, or replace your air bag module after your air bags have deployed, it is located underneath the center console or jump seat. I was told it was under the driver's seat, which it's not. For the entire process, for the air bag system, there's a couple good videos on youtube for the air bag removal and front seat and center console removal. The clockspring is really straight forward, but couldn't find a video of it on youtube. You'll need a pair of lock ring pliers. For the seat removal, just follow the you tube videos, very simple and quick. It's actually a little more difficult re-installing the driver's seat than it is taking it out, but a little patience and it goes right in. Overall replacing/resetting an air bag system is not difficult to do at all, just make sure you follow all safety precautions first. I was quoted almost $1,500 just for the drivers air bag, clock spring, module and front sensors. I did everything but the front sensors myself and saved almost $900!
mavrik2747 posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra Troubleshooting2014 Chevy Silverado 4.3l V6 So heading in to work right now, I lost all power. Came to a stop and truck won't restart. Check engine light is throwing codes p0106, p018b and c0700. I have ZERO oil pressure but am not losing any oil. So I'm sitting on the side of the highway waiting for a tow truck to take it to the dealership. Anyone have any idea what the culprits could be? Would these codes fall under the powertrain warranty?
Does anyone know how to remove the clockspring? It looks like theres a retainer ring holding it on that has 2 small holes, potentially to separate it to remove it? Is there a tool for it? My truck was in a wreck and Im rebuilding it and have to replace both the clock spring and airbag. Ill try to get a photo this afternoon of the retainer ring.
Thanks! Thats what I was thinking but the ring isnt shaped like a typical snap ring so I wasnt sure. Is there a spring under the clock spring? A guy I talked to said Ill need some kind of puller/spreader to put it back on. I didnt see one when looking at it last night but it was dark so I don't know.
So total of $775 to replace the fuel pump. The part only has a 1 year 12,000 mile warranty which is disappointing, but at least Im back on the road.
Thanks for the info! Makes you wonder why the original part they put in the truck is covered for lifetime, but only the replacement is...
No warranty. It would have been included in the 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, which expired. It's not included in the power train warranty.
Nope. I've had it since September, and it's never been below 1/4 tank.
Yeah that's the first thing I did, called a couple shops that I'm familiar with. They were actually surprised that the dealership price was pretty reasonable. Especially since I'd have to pay for the diagnostic fee for $115 if the dealership wasn't going to do it, so that on top of whatever savings from another shop (which wasn't much) didn't it make worth it.
Man, not good news, but thanks for clarifying for me! Looks like the wallet is going to take a $750 hit.
