Dash lights - change color
thunderbolt1991 posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI just bought a 2014 GMC sierra and the dash lights are a horrible red color. I know I've seen a similar dash on one of these post with a greenish blue color. Anyone know if its possible to change color? Thanks
Hello, I recently bought a 2000 GMC Sierra 2500 extended cab SLT 2wd with the 5.3L. I was very excited about this truck initially as I got it at a great price, but I am starting to become overwhelmed with all of its problems I recently discovered. The previous owner purchased this truck at an auction, and put a lot of new parts on it mechanically and cosmetically. There are a lot of mis-matched parts on this truck and I can tell it is somewhat of a "Frankenstein." One thing I noticed is that there are 4x4 buttons on the dash, even though this is a 2wd truck (no T-case). So obviously someone put a new dash on from a 4wd donor. Also, the plastic around the ignition cylinder looks like its been monkeyed with, so someone was probably fooling around near the steering column. When I test drove the truck, the only light on was "Service Engine Soon." However, when I brought my truck to get an OBDII scan at the parts store it returned 14 codes (some duplicates) which are as follows: B0017 - Passenger frontal deployment loop open B0024 - Driver deployment loop short to ground B0036 - Discriminating sensor open or short to voltage B0051 - Deployment commanded C0265 - EBCM relay circuit P0430 - Catalyst system - Low efficiency (Bank 2) P0440 - EVAP system P0449 - Evaporative canister vent solenoid control circuit But, NO lights are ever on the dash except the SES. Shouldn't the airbag or SRS light be on as well? On startup the only lights that come are the SES, nothing else. All the gauges work, although they bounce oddly when I shut off the truck. The voltage needle also twitches very slightly when I use the turn signal. Also, when I turn on the headlamps, the only thing lit up is the cluster. The radio, climate controls, and everything else is dark. And, when I cleared the codes with the ODBII scanner, the radio went off and reset itself to 1:00?! I have literally spent hours on end searching in vain for a definitive answer to this host of problems with only little success. I am guessing that the "B" codes mean that I need a new SDM? Perhaps this truck was in a wreck? P0430 might be because of a small exhaust leak this truck has, or possibly the cat is bad. P0440 and P0449 might mean I need a new EVAP solenoid or can? Please help me, it would be greatly appreciated. This truck means a lot to my little family as it is how we are getting across the country for my new job in Tallahassee. Any insights would be very welcome. Thank you all.
Hey guys, So over the weekend I put a new (to me) transmission in my truck (2003 silverado 1500) upon finishing the job I went to start it up to start pumping the new fluid through, but the truck will not turn over. All lights, radio, ect.. come on, but the truck will not turn over. Also, even after I have pulled the key out, the front marker lights, rear running lights, and dash lights all will not shut off. There is a high pitched ringing coming from the engine compartment, which, along with the lights shuts off when I pull the fuse for "ECM B". Initially I thought this was the Park-Neutral safety switch, which was cracked while we were installing it. The only idea I have left is that there is a small wire that comes out of the harness and attaches to the back of the engine right behind the passenger side cylinder head that was broken while installing the dipstick, I cannot find any information about what this wire is for or where it is supposed to be attached. ANY help would be much appreciated!!!
ABS and E-Brakes...
NamlessKing posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500As of last December I had been given my grandfather's 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 (Though oddly enough it has the 2006 body) and since then I've been working on improving and fixing the issues that it's had. Since I've had it I noticed that the ABS and E-Brake lights have been on and I never really had thought twice about it until now. The ABS light is constantly glowing from the start-up point until I shut the truck down, and I'm wondering if anyone had any insightful tips for that. Furthermore, the E-brake had been pulled at some point and was broken into the "pulled" position. There is no longer an E-brake (or at least one that works) but the light is still on because the handle is still "pulled". Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
