  1. Hello everyone! So Im new in the truck world good myself a chevy avalanche 04 for my 18 birthday. It had a ac issue where passenger side would blow hot air. After diagnosis I found out that the blend door actuator was bad so I tried replacing it. I had to take out the passenger side airbag to access it. It was very tight and in the removal process I broke the shaft that controls the door :,(. Now what there isn't enough space in there to just epoxy the shaft back on. Any ideas? Summer is coming up here in so cal so for now ill just bypass the heater core but for future it would be nice to have heating lol. Any help is appreciated.
  2. I am currently helping my father with his transmission rebuild for the 4l60e on a 2002 avalanche, he installed a transgo 4l60e sk shift improvement kit along with adding a corvette servo. he installed a cam on the 5.3 and the engine runs flawlessly and for the transmission he added a 3000 stall converter. the transmission will shift into reverse fine and will shift into second with using the manual shift, however the transmission will not shift into drive. the valve body has been checked over and over again and everything seems to be in place. Has anyone else had this issue or know what may cause this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. This is my first post and kind of lame. Being from Maine, the trucks up here come in contact with a lot of road salt. I'm trying to find a new fuel filler door. The only one I could find that was in decent shape and matching color was from a 2005 Chevy Avalanche 1500. My truck is a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500hd. Does anyone know if this part will fit my truck or where I can find this type of info? Thanks.
  4. So my wife went and broke the right passenger side mirror on the Avy. They are the power extending style and of course they only extend and retract manually! What are my options for replacements? I hate these mirrors anyway but now I got a reason to change em out! I love the 07 and newer style HD mirrors on the GM's! Will these work on my truck? If not, what else would you recommend? I would love to install power folding tow mirrors using the factory power switch for the extending ones but I have not been able to find anything.
  5. My 2008 5.3L 4WD Avalanche with ~135K miles has recently been throwing a P0306 cylinder 6 misfire, along with a Stablitrak warning. It first happened a couple weeks ago but only lasted a day. I cleared the code and it was fine for another couple of weeks before it happened again today. It does go through a lot of oil (probably a at every 1,000 miles), and there is a clicking sound. I know from researching this the last couple weeks that its likely failure of the #6 cylinder lifter and/or plug fouling due to the AFM system design and/or old PCV cover. I intend on doing some diagnostics this weekend including inspecting and replacing (if needed) plugs/wires/coils, doing compression tests, and pulling off valve covers to look for stuck lifters/valves. My questions are: 1) Other than the obvious, is there anything else I should be specifically looking out for when running these tests? 2) Are there are any other diagnostic tests I should be doing while I am in there. 3) Assuming compression test is fine, and replacing plugs/wires stops the misfires, can I hold off on replacing a bad lifter if there is one? 4) I would plan on getting a Range tuner to disable AFM (which I should have done when I bought the truck 3 years ago) and replacing the valve coverwith the new one. If the compression test is OK suggesting there is (currently) no ring, gasket, valve, etc. damage, would these measures stave off more issues? 4) If a lifter is bad and I really need to replace it now, can I just replace the one, or do I need to replace them all? Also, how difficult is it to take the passenger side head off to access the #6 lifters? 5) If it does fail compression, am I likely screwed and looking at a rebuild or replacement? 6) Any other advice, recommendations, or thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  6. I took a trip to Louisiana Sunday night and on the way back I noticed that my cruise control was not working when I stop to get gas I walk to the back of my truck and the brake lights are still on even with the key turned off my immediate thought was that the brake switch was bad After replacing it I found out that it was not the Brake switch so my second thought was that maybe having recently have pulled a trailer that the trailer pin plug may have been shorted out I disconnected it and that was not the problem either I then began checking fuses all the fuses are good and even when I remove the brake light fuse the brake light still stay on the only way to get them to turn off Is to disconnect the battery I am at a loss of what it could be please help
  7. I put the truck in neutral, like you should, i bring the truck to a stop, and i push the 4lo button. It flashes for about 5-10 secs but then goes right back to 2hi, I've tried rolling about 2-3mph and it still won't even engage. Its a 2002 chevy avalanche z71, with the 5.3L V8. Sometimes when i press it, it engages no problem, but other times, it just flashes and goes right back to 2hi. When i press 4hi, it goes right in, but 4lo is giving me some problems.
  8. I have a 2004 avalanche I change the head unit I went to Walmart In bought the plug for my new radio. plugged everything in and my front speakers do not work. I've heard and read A lot about the pre amp. But nobody explains how to do it In detail. I also have an extra plug with 2 wires that are inertwined with each otherI don't know what those 2 wires are or what they go.
  9. I have a 2003 Chevy Avalanche 1500. My factory amp under my center console I believe is going out because sometimes when we get in the truck the radio plays audio & others it does not. Everything comes on as it should, just does not play any sound. We could be driving & all of a sudden it comes on. I have unhooked all my wires at least 3 times & re hooked them up just to make sure I have not had any loose wires or bad connections. So I want to do a temp fix until I can replace the factory amp. I want to bypass the amp & hook the speakers straight up to each other from the amp wiring harness. I would unhook the 2 wiring harnesses on the amp & then run a jumper wire from each speaker to make it like the amp never there. I want to run it this way instead of running all new wires to each door. If anyone can help me with this project that would be great.

  11. Greetings all. I sure would appreciate any members thoughts on my ABS Traction control nightmare that I'm having, I just can't seem to get ahead on this one. 2006 Avalanche 1500 4x4 LT, 108k. Started out as an intermittent ABS and Traction Control lights activating with the "service stability" in the display. They would stay on for five minutes driving down the highway, then turn off for a half hour, then back on. All intermittently. Ran a scanner, no DTC's. I tried a different scanner but still, no DTC's. Cleaned up the grounds and Decided to replace the front hub assemblies with the sensors because they're almost the same price for just the sensors. Still getting the warning lights on. Replaced the rear sensors but it helped none. So, not much left so I replaced the ABS Module. Had the Dealer Reprogram and still... ABS and TC Lights are illuminating. Could air in the brake lines cause this weird abs problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Anyone have any experience with lowering their 2013 4X4 Avalanche
  13. Howdy guys! It has been awhile since I've posted anything as life has been crazy and the 2007 Avalanche 1500 2WD has been good. However, with almost 150,000 miles now, the front end is starting to feel loose and noises abound. I think it is time for some maintenance. I'm trying to determine what all I should replace. Might as well do it all while it is apart. All work will be performed by me in my garage. I know I've gotta replace the ball joints and tie rod ends. Upper ball joints aren't replaceable alone, have to replace the entire control arm. Going to get the control arms complete with ball joint and bushings. Might as well do the same for the lowers and make it easy on myself. What else should I replace? Pitman arm? Any other steering components? I was all bearings, joints, bushings to be replaced, I just don't know what all is down there. I'm also having some squeaking/squealing and I'm wondering if I should replace the front hubs. Maybe a front brake job while I'm at it?
  14. I've seen several conflicting reports regarding the fluid capacities on both the front and rear differentials on my 07 Avalanche. The manual does a great job specifying the gear oil types but seems to be lacking the capacities part in the "fluids and capacities" section. Anyone have a good answer for me? I sure would appreciate it!
  15. Brand new set of black billet bowties for 2006+ Chevy Avalanche - I believe they will fit Tahoe and Suburban as well, but do your research as I bought these for an Avalanche These sell on ebay and parts sites for $110+ pretty regularly as they're nice billet pieces - Will sell for $80 shipped to the lower 48 states
  16. Cold start and idle of my Corsa Sport on the Avy. Sounds incredible under load and WOT and very quiet in the cabin when just driving regularly. Definitely wife approved (and that counts for a lot LOL). Hope you enjoy
  17. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and looking any suggestions on a problem that has me stumped with my avalanche. It has a hard start condition. It seems to be related to the outside temperature. I didn't do it all winter and started back as the weather warmed up. It starts fine if the engine is completely cold and it starts fine if you crank it within about 15-20 minutes after cutting it off. If I cut the truck off and let it sit for two hours and try to start it it cranks for several seconds before starting. it's a 2004 with the 5.3. It doesn't have an inline fuel filter or a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Everything is in the tank module, which I have replace with a new AC Delco unit. I have also replaced the evap vent and purge solenoid. I'm going to try a crank sensor just for the heck of it tomorrow. It doesn't set any codes. Does this sound familiar to anyone. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!
  18. I got my first in person view of this package today. As a former Avalanche owner, I do not think I am down with it.
  19. Hello folks, I'm Aaron Grayer and I'm a new guy here. Short intro, I'm currently a Auto/Diesel Tech student and musician (yes, they do go together). Got hopes and dreams of working for Ohio CAT and making something of myself in the industry. I am also a die hard GM Truck fan, which is why I joined GM Trucks Currently, I have an issue that I'm confronted with on my truck. I installed and wired correctly an XO VIsion X358 Single DIN In Dash Receiver. After searching to the ends of the Earth it seems like, I finally found a radio harness compatible for my truck. However, I'm still confronted with the same problem: I have to fuse the Orange (Illumination), Yellow (Radio Constant), and Red (Radio 12V Ignition) wires together for the radio to power on. As you may suspect, this mean the radio is receiving constant power. I have to pull the radio fuse under the hood to disconnect power to the radio but I noticed it also disconnects power to my speedometer, tachometer, message center, LED display in the cluster, oil pressure gauge, temperature gage, illumination in the door panels, fog lights, the light in the ashtray and the HVAC controls. I still have the factory radio and I've seen some YouTube videos of people with the same GM setup successfully but they never walk through the steps of how they did it. Can someone here help me please? I would gladly appreciate it!
  20. So I have developed an issue this winter where mice have decided my truck was a good spot for hiding dog food (not sure how a mouse can haul a large breed junk of dog food but whatever). Anyway, I took my air box apart to find about 5# of dog food hidden under the filter!! What?!!! Funny thing is this happened with my old truck as well! Strange! Anyway, that dog food has somehow made it into my HVAC system. I literally have dog food rolling around in there somewhere and making it's way out the floor vents! I took the blower motor out and couldn't find anything there. It looks like they are getting access to the channel l that runs the width of the truck where the vents are by the windshield. So, how on earth am I suppose to get the dog food out of there and how do I keep them bastards out of my truck??

  24. I am a new member here. My insurance company just totaled my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. I was completely stopped in freeway traffic when I was rear-ended by a lady in an Acura TSX (I think) She hit me hard. I estimate she was going 45 mph, slowing down but was distracted and didn't have time to get out of the way or stop in time. I say 45 because she pushed me into a Honda Odyssey. I was about 2 feet from him, and he was pushed into 3 vehicles ahead of him. So 6 cars total. She had state minimum coverage, $10k for property. Needless to say her insurance company is not paying for anything right away. We were told to file on our own insurance via Under Insured or Non-Insured. While not happy about this, I would rather have the ball rolling on getting back on the road. Her claims guy told me she will likely get sued by all six insurance companies in the end to try and recover what they can. That cheap insurance isn't looking so cheap to her any more. My insurance company was more than fair with me. I am very happy with the settlement, even though I had a new engine in it (6 months and maybe about 10k miles) which they kinda screwed me on, but considering the age and mileage of the Avalanche they gave me "Very Good to Execellent" / "Dealer Ready" condition for pretty much everything. I am sad that I lost my favorite truck ever, I am moving on. I just ordered a new 2016 1500 Silverado LTZ 2WD (Crew Cab/Small Box). My dealer found a couple of trucks in the area that were close, but in the end I decided to order from the factory to get exactly what I wanted. I lose my rental (2015 Ram 1500 Quad Cab) Wednesday. (I hate my rental - LOL) This RAM doesn't even have a shifter on the column, It has a KNOB on the dash. Very difficult to get used to. Luckily my father has offered his 2015 1500 High Country to use while I am waiting for mine. It is a company vehicle (family corporation) we decided to not go High Country and drop down to LTZ and save the company a little cash. And the loaner High Country to save some cash on driving a rental. My dealer quoted me 6 to 8 weeks to get it built and delivered. Needless to say I am going a little stir crazy playing the waiting game. But it has given me time to do some research on a tonneau cover for it. I read all 80 pages on the subject here. Better info than anything else I could find online. I am excited to be here and more excited to have a new truck. While I loved my Avalanche, after 9 years it was really starting to show it's age.
  25. I have an '03 Avalanche w/93.8K miles. Got out of the truck at the grocery store and immediately got hit w/a very strong burning odor. Original thought was electrical, so took a flashlight in my pocket and looked for smoke in the cab. There was none. In fact, I couldn't see any smoke anywhere. Smell had dissipated while in the store, but upon arrival at home (2 miles away), there it was again. I sniffed around and found that it was strongest around the left/rear wheel well. Hoping someone else has had this issue and been able to resolve it. I cannot find any recent posts about anything similar that have any confirmed solutions posted. Thanks in advance, I really LOVE this truck!
