A few months ago I replaced the stock speakers that came with my truck. I put in Rockford Fosgate 3-way speakers. It worked for a while, now no sound comes from the speakers. They will come in every now and then, but not often. I think it’s the head unit. What could be the issue?
Hi guys. I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500. I recently had to replace the turn signal switch do to the steering wheel tilt issue most of these trucks have. The wires disconnected under the column from using the tilt too much causing my headlights to stop working. I forget to disconnect the battery and in the process of changing this part, a spark went off when an exposed power wire hit a ground somewhere. I noticed 1 fuse went out that wouldn't allow my truck to start. I replaced it with a new fuse and my truck was up and running. But now the fuel gauge, temperature gauge and transmission temperature gauge all stop working at the same time. Also now the battery light is consistently on. Also the digital display for mileage and gear turns on when key is half turned but turns completely off when truck starts. This all happened at the same time. I checked all the fuses in the engine bay and cab and all seem to be fine. I had the gauge cluster checked at a pro shop and they said everything is working fine. What do you guys think the next step I should take? Are there relays I can check or test? Do you think all these sensors could have went out at the same time when I caused the spark? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
I have a 2001 silverado, CEL came on, then at the next red light the tranny slipped out of gear and would not go into any gear. Let it set @ 15 minutes, restarted and worked fine or a few minutes then started slipping again. At stop sign could feel a pulsing in the transmission. Set code P1870. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
We have a 2001 Silverado 1500 that had the hitch and trailer wiring hooked up by the local dealer back in 2002. Our previous trailer didn't have electric brakes on it so we have no brake controller inside our truck. We have just upgraded our trailer to an enclosed 7'x14' trailer with electric brakes on it. Without the brake controller; we get power to the brakes and have them lock up when we step on the brake pedal. We are having a hard time figuring out how to hook this brake controller up to the existing harness. We have removed the cover to the external fuse box in the engine compartment, attached the red wire within the existing harness to the post and made sure there was the correct amp fuse in the box for the power. Utilizing the inside factory connect and junction box, we are getting power to the controller inside the cab of the truck when plugged in but it doesn't seem to make any changes to the braking force. It's like we still have a full 12V running to the brakes whenever we step on the brakes. Is there another wire (blue one that is by the red one built in to the junction box) that we need to hook up? Also, what is the best location and where should this wire go? I have heard conflicting info between a mysterious white wire and the dark blue wire that is in the 7 pin pigtail. I am confused as this pigtail when connected to the trailer provides full feed to all 4 electric brakes. Any help would be appreicated as we need to use this trailer this week to haul some items. Thank you in advance for you time and knowledge.
