Check Engine Limp Mode and Won't start
shirienchappell posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianDec/Jan, 2016/17, Check Engine Light and Limp Mode: Silverado Dec, 2016: The "check engine" light came on on the way back from St. Paul, MN, and then the truck went into "limp mode". Also on that trip there were several days that the truck wouldn't start easily in the morning. Dec. 16: In Elk City, OK, the truck started hard in the morning and then went into limp mode before we got back onto the freeway. We took it to the Gene Smith Chevy dealer. A tech. who read the codes said it probably wouldn't affect our drive home and reset the codes. He said the problem read out as being in the five volt system but that we very likely could drive the truck on home. When we turned it back on after he reset the codes the limp mode was gone. The truck drove ok for the next day but the check engine light came back on. Dec 20: The truck did make it all the way back to Cottage Grove, Oregon, with the check engine light showing. Interestingly, when we unplugged the U-Haul car transport trailer the check engine light went away. We thought maybe the plug-in on the trailer might have caused a short in the truck system and when the trailer was gone, the short went away. Turned out that theory was wrong. Dec 21: The check engine light came back on and the engine went into limp mode so we took the truck into Madras, Oregon, Chevy dealer who said Left it there for a few days, and then paid them $456.21. Here's what their bill says: "Customer states when temps are in the range of freezing or below the vehicle will not start as if no fuel preheat. If is cool yet warmer than freezing and does start it will set a mil light and go into lip m0de. Diagnosis found multiple codes set, P03040, PO3041, PO193 and P2545. Bulletin existed to check wire harness for chafing, none found. Pressure tubes and sensors checked good. The fuel filter housing not holding pressure and the exhaust soot level high. We replaced the fuel housing and regenerated the Def system." Tuesday, January 3, 2017: the check engine light came on again and the limp mode started again but we limped all the way in to the Bend Chevy dealer. The dealership didn't have any idea what was wrong, nor when we'd get the truck back. Wednesday, Jan. 4: David from Bend Chevy says they've replaced one wire harness but think they need to replace another one, and it has to be ordered, but maybe Monday or Tuesday it might be done. Wed, Jan. 11, 2017: Got a call from David from Bend Chevy this morning; said the truck was done. John paid Bend Chevy $656.75, and drove away. He didn’t get more than a block away before the check engine light came back on, so he went back to Bend Chevy. The read the error codes again and said it would take more time to find the problem. They’d had the truck for eight days so John brought the truck home. He asked how many miles the truck could be driven while in limp mode: no problems, he was told. Does driving the truck with the check engine light on cause a problem? None, he was told. If the limp mode comes on and John stops the truck and starts it back up again and the limp mode is gone, would that cause any problems. No, he was told. "Date started: Jan 3, 2017 Date ended: Jan 11, 2017 A customer states the check engine light is on and vehicle has gone into reduced engine power. See attached for previous work performed. Advise. Eng Diagnose short at SV Refence. Repair connector for brake pedal position 176077 CCRC 1 12672642 (S) Sensor Parts: $41.75 labor: $614.00 Other: $0.00 total Line A: $656.75 114926 checked vehicle dtcs and found multiple codes stored as history including p0340, p0341, p0193, p2454, p0522, p0641, all of these codes are for the sensors on the 5 volt reference one. which means that a short to ground on one of these circuits or internal short on one of these sensors would shut down the whole 5 volt reference. The main connectors would set a p057c which is for the brake pedal position circuit. Disconnected the connector and performed a pin drag test everything was normal, opened the wiring harness and inspected wires found no faults, possibly another problem with the brake pedal position sensor circuit but could not duplicate code. Conditions were intermittent the only code that would consistently return would be for the cam position sensor. Inspected wiring and tested all there circuits to the cam position sensor and everything tested normal. Replaced cam position sensor wrapped the wiring harness and test drove vehicle. No further diagnostics unless codes come back and can be more persistent." Note: as I look at the bill above I don’t see any wiring harness charges Thursday, January 12, 2017: truck was plugged in all night; it started easily this morning and sat in the driveway, defrosting windows and warming up. When we started to back out of the driveway the limp mode and check engine light went on. John turned off the truck, tried to turn the truck back on, and it would not start. If Chevy mechanics can't figure this out, what do I do? any help? Thanks so much.
I have a 2012 silverado and my check engine light keeps coming off and on. The codes read are c0900- device 1 voltage high(history) c0899- device 1 voltage low(history) p0300- multiple misfire detected (History Mil) p0301- cylinder 1 misfire detected (confirmed) there is a slight rough idle on the truck, and I think that my gas mileage has decreased slightly Does anyone have any idea what my problem could be before I take it to a shop, or start replacing parts
Hi all, I have had my 2015 Silverado 5.3L Crew for less than a year, purchased February 2015. Currently, the truck has around 14800 miles on it, most of which are highway miles as I make frequent trips between Atlanta and Florida. Today on my way to work in Atlanta my truck just gave out on me power wise, no acceleration passed 40 mph. The check engine light came on and started flashing repeatedly which the Chevy site indicates that to mean there is a serious problem that needs immediate attention. Well I was a very short distance from the dealer near work so I just maintained my speed and tried not to let the truck shift gears. Once I got off the highway I had to come to a stop and experienced really rough idle and some hard knocking sounds. The truck did not however seem like it wanted to die out or stall on me. When the light turned green I pressed the gas and had very weak acceleration, the truck was hardly picking up speed and I couldn't tell what the trans was doing. Anyway, I got it around the corner to the dealer and dropped it off. I am hoping its just a computer module or something that gave out and started affecting things but it honestly seems more to me like a serious mechanical issue. Does anyone have any similar experiences or have any speculation into the issue? The transmission in this truck has always been the thing I liked least about it, sluggish shifts, not knowing what gear it wants to be in, hard shifts and knocking/dropping sounds. Any info or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeremy
2003 Silverado 2500HD 6.0 P Code problems
bredin posted a topic in 2000-2014 Silverado & Sierra HDHave a few questions, wonder if any of you have some ideas or input on them... I have an 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4wd with the 6.0L Vortec (U code for VIN) and has about 179K miles on it. The truck was getting a check engine code of P0101, MAF Sensor, I replaced that one and now I am getting the below codes, on and off... P0131 Oxygen Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (B1S1) P0151 O2 Sensor Circuit Low B2S1 P0327 Knock Sensor DTC Code P0332 Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low (Bank 2) Everything except P0327 (normally stays on during normal driving) comes up when I floor the gas on the highway. But when going around 65 - 70 mph at 2000rpm, and gives full throttle, the truck down shifts to 3000 rpm first and then once more down to 4000 rpm, but there is no torque... truck actually slows down going uphill instead and does not go above 4000 rpm. Should I bite the bullet and change the knock sensors and O2 sensors as well? I got the suggestion that it could be clogged cats, but it's not idling or running rough... Any ideas?
2008 Yukon Denali...what does this light mean?
ZK686 posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianThis light popped on before, and it turned off about a day later. It just recently turned on again, and it hasn't turned off. It's been on for about 3 days now. Denali has about 94,000 miles on it. What does it mean? http://i.imgur.com/GT30F6w.jpg
