  1. Locate your RPO Code label, usually on the glove box door. Do a Google search search for 05 GMC SIERRA RPO Codes and match your codes with the list. That will give you just about all of the build / option info you want.
  2. what is this plastic clip?

    Looks like some kind of retainer clip for either wires or possibly a fuel line.
  3. Headliner Deforming

    My 03 Silverados headliner is sagging as well. There is no kits out there that i know of. What i plan on doing is pulling the headliner out, remove material and the old foam stuck to the base. Purchase liner material off of eBay and with spray glue made for headliners, recover it.
  4. Standard or metric?

    So far everything I have done to my 03 Silverado 4x4 required metric wrenches.
  5. I had a similar situation when I replaced all of mine on my 04 Silverado 1500 4x4. You may have air trapped in EBCM which is preventing you from getting a good bleed. If you know of someone who has a GM Tech 2 or a Tech 2 clone you can activate the EBCM pump to bleed out the air. I didn't have one at the time so what i did was drive my truck on loose graveled area and hit the brakes hard to cycle the pump. I did that a few times and re-bled the brakes with success.
  6. I had almost 10 degree of play side to side until the steering box was adjusted. Now it's perfect. Turn the steering wheel, truck turns. No play.
  7. Another thing you want to have checked is the steering box . After i replaced everything short of control arm bushings on my 03 Silverado 1500 4x4 ( all stock ) and had it aligned I also asked the mechanic to adjust the steering box. I made a world of difference. No more lose, wandering front end.
  8. Maaco paint jobs

    If you were to use a shop like Maaco the cost for a single-coat synthetic enamel paint job ranges from $300 to $900, with an average of $566. A mid-level paint job with a higher-quality paint and additional prep work like removing rust and dents can range from $1,000 to $3,500 with an average of $1,316.You can save a lot of money if you do most of the prep work yourself like a good cleaning and degreasing, removal of parts, trim etc,etc that would need to be taped off if left on and so on.
  9. My 03 1500 and 04 Vette, both purchased new have been doing it since day one and still doing it to this day. No problems what so ever, other then a the annoying "slap" until warmed up.
  10. My sensor crapped out as well...needle pegged at 80 psi. I was all over the top of the engine trying to reach the damn thing which to me is almost impossible. I just may have to pull the manifold...as much as I don't want to although I have heard and read that it isn't that hard to do.
  11. I'm sure he can....send him a I'm sure he can. Send him a PM and ask him .
  12. As it was said to me...... " Well it looks easy on YouTube"...LOL I replaced the stepper motors in my 03 Silverado along with the cluster lights to LED's but when it came to the HVAC unit I BUTCHERED it up. No big deal, I'll get another one....and I screwed that one up too ! Along comes member Cody7 to save the day. I sent him my HVAC unit and he managed to salvage the circuit board that I screwed up and made it work. If you want to do a LED conversion and you're unsure about doing it yourself then give Coby7 a shout ! The MAN KNOWS HIS STUFF ! Thanks Agian Coby7
  13. This just happened to my 03 Silverado 2 days ago but it was the left directional signal that wouldn't work. After checking and confirming the bulbs were ok ,I got it working again by, removing the upper and lower cover to the steering column, unplugged and removed the stalk assembly and sprayed liberal amount of contact cleaner along side the stalk where it enters the housing. Exercise the switch and it was enough to clean the carbon build up on the contacts. Reinstalled the stalk it it good as new.
  14. A HELL of a lot to do with it !
  15. What the Gent above said..............replace the unit as a whole. MUCH EASIER !
