  1. I traded in my 2009 Silverado 1500 this past Friday for a new to me 2019 Silverado LTZ 4x4 with the 6.2, with 19k miles. I'd been looking for a while, and comparison shopped till I was blue in the face. I was sad to see my '09 go. It was a great truck that I bought new during GM's bailout and served me well, but it was time. So, here it is...I was ideally after the 5.3 simply because I didn't really "need" the 6.2, but no complaints here I assure you. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  2. I was having a similar issue on my 2009 Silverado 1500 about 5 months ago. There's numerous folks who have had the same or similar problem and it turned out to be corroded battery cables. My truck would drive fine, andthen once I'd turn the key off it acted as if the battery had been totally removed. Both my positive and negative cables had deteriorated, especially the negative. Also, part of my issue was I found the nut holding down the positive cable to the starter solenoid was loose. Both cables totaled about $120 combined and around an hour to replace. Hopefully this is your issue! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  3. Just an update.. Replaced the negative battery cable/ground connection set. It's been working fine, until yesterday... similar issue. Went to start, but this time there was a momentary hesitation before it cranked. When it did start, everything had reset like a battery had just been changed. I was thinking I'd go ahead and replace the cable(s) on the positive terminal as well, to the starter solenoid and along the firewall to the fuse box. Those parts are proving to be difficult to figure out exactly which ones I need. Any thoughts? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  4. I replaced the negative terminal cable, so we'll see what happens. The old one didn't look to be in terrible shape. Slightly suspect at the lugging point that went to the negative terminal on the battery itself, but otherwise fine. At only ~$45, it certainly didn't hurt to change it and see what happens. Thanks, again! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Ok, I'll start digging into it and see what I can find. I'll try anything at this point. Thank you! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  6. I have a 2009 Silverado 1500 with just under 96k miles, and here are the details of the issue... The truck can start up and drive like normal, and then I can literally go back to it and nothing will power on, no lights, no attempt to crank, absolutely nothing. I can only hear some clicking in what sounds like from the driver side door, but that's it. The first time it happened, a jump start got it going. Initially, I thought a bad battery. It's less than a year old, but had it tested and it was fine. It happened a second time. It powered on momentarily with a check engine light, and I was able to get the code. P2127 with other messages saying reduced engine power, service stabilitrak, etc. However, the engine was running and idling fine. I drove it and when I turned the truck off, it went totally dead again. This time a jump start didn't help. I removed the negative terminal cable from the battery, then placed it back. Everything powered back on and the truck started up. I brought it to a reputable, local shop. They had it for almost 10 days and couldn't recreate the issue. It checked out mechanically and diagnostically. I got the truck back, and for 2 weeks it's been fine... until last night, I got stuck again with the same problem. Lifted and replaced the negative terminal, got it home. Never again have I gotten another check engine light. I'm at a loss and haven't found anything related on any forums just yet, so I wanted to finally reach out and see if anyone even remotely has a clue where to start? Thanks in advance!

  7. I had the same code and replaced my solenoid as well. Stupid questions probably, but did you manually clear the code and it came back, or it has yet to clear? Mine took about 30 miles or so to self clear. I realize you've likely done that, but just trying to help where I can! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Ok, I'll give these a look in the coming days and report back. Def appreciated! Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Nah, nothing running. I only noticed because I had the windows down consistently once the weather got nice enough here in TX to do so a few weeks back. It's not loud enough to hear otherwise. No telling how long it's really been going on, [emoji1787] I'll give the sway bars a look, though, for sure. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  10. Alright...apologies in advance if this is a redundant post. I tried going through forums and doing some homework before I pulled a repeater on here, but my issue seems a bit different. Anytime hitting a bump(primarily small ones oddly enough, but also not every time), my truck(2009 Silverado 1500, 5.3 OHV with 92k miles) makes what I can only describe as this... imagine you are holding a handful of small chains and gently shaking them for a second or two. It sounds exactly like that. I've tried looking for obvious signs on the suspension, but nothing yet and nothing in depth. I imagine next I'll need to have the front end up and let the front wheels hang and do some checks there for the joints, but otherwise....? Again, I'm sorry if that has been discussed, but anytime I found a similar post, their noise was stated as more a "clunking" or rattle that was more a loud tapping as that of a heat shield. Thanks!
