    2003 GMC Sierra 1500
  1. 03 1500 with plow mounts

    Look for rusted fuel and brake lines. My transfer case (and differential pan) corroded to the point of leaking as well. Broken exhaust manifold bolts, fresh fluids, smooth shifting.
  2. Four wheel drive problems?

    Maybe bad encoder/motor. Its not positioning the gears in the right spot.
  3. Airbag light random

    Where was the bad contact?
  4. All the Tech2s I see on eBay state they are not for trucks. Anyone have a better source?
  5. Tow Haul

    Gotta do mine too. Thanks for the info!
  6. I think its more right in the center at the back of the motor. Indeed difficult to get to. I had someone else install mine.
  7. Depending on where you live or where the truck is from, rusting brake and fuel lines are something to look out for. My e brake system is totally gone as well.
  8. Replacing fuel lines

    I paid about $200 for a replacement set from Lines To Go. Was going to do myself but heard its difficult to get the bracket off the top of the bell-housing. I'm also not sure if I can get the pre-bent lines around the ABS module and torsion tube crossmember (don't want to have to take those lose). It can also be difficult to get the connections at the fuel tank apart if they're really rusty (like mine). I'll be getting a quote for a mechanic to do soon.
  9. Transfer case info

    You can get those RPO codes from the label on the inside of the glove box.
  10. Transfer case info

    What is your RPO code? That should narrow it down. It might be stamped/labeled on the case as well.
  11. Rear Diff

    When I did mine, I found that when I pounded the 6 point socket on them to get them off, they "cleaned up" fairly well and I ended up reusing them without any issues. You are replacing that cover right? What else you planning on doing?
  12. Does it make noise (clicking/clunking) at low speed going around a sharp turn? That's usually how they sound when first starting to fail. Just a matter of time though with a cut boot. I dont think they are too expensive and not terribly hard to replace.
  13. My 03 has a vibration at 65 and I too have already replaced hubs. Another thing I have not checked that supposedly can generate vibrations is U joints. Not sure the easiest way to check those, but they're relatively cheap so might just replace them for the heck of it. Glad to see you back on the forum Chris. You've been absent for awhile.
  14. Oil change

    For my 2003, turn key on (do not start), press accelerator 3 times holding to floor on third time until message resets.
