I replaced my pass side light bulb about 5 months ago with the same type of halogen bulbs that they come with out of the factory and one day i realized that the same side as before went out. Before that one went out i had a set of after market LED lights. these to be exact https://www.amazon.ca/Lumen-9012HLC-G7-LED-Performance-Bulbs/dp/B01N5Q0TMA i ran those LED's on my truck and they looked great! everything was plug and play they lasted for about 4 months when my pass side bulb gave out on those too. when i took out the bulb to inspect it one of the LED diodes was blown out. I wasn't too surprised by that because sometimes after market parts can be a bit cheaper quality. But when my OEM halogen bulbs went out. thats 3 sets of bulbs in less than 2 years. I am just wondering. Is this bad luck?? Have any of you had this issue before?? if you did what was causing it?? any troubleshooting tips?? I really dont want to keep buying light bulbs every 5 months even the halogen bulbs are a little expensive
Last week I noticed my passenger side powered seat on my 2017 Sierra Denali was no longer working. Just dead, switches resulted in no movement. Checked the fuse and it was blown, replaced with a spare and tried the seat again. Lower seat switch worked fine. Seat back switch worked fine. The moment I moved the lumbar support switch I saw a flash come from underneath the seat and the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse again and - nothing. The seat is now dead. The driver's seat makes a sound like a relay switching when you move the switches, but I don't even get that on the passenger seat now. Verified again that the fuse is fine, moved it to the rear sliding glass to test. Anyone have any idea what may have broken? I understand it appears I have/had a short somewhere in the lumbar support, but now the whole passenger seat seems to be dead. Is there a relay somewhere that would need to be replaced? Anyone have the powered seat wiring diagrams? Would anyone, at minimum, be able to remove their passenger side seat fuse and tell me if they hear the relay switching noise even when the fuse is removed? First post since I've always been able to find the answer here before with some creative searching, but not this time.
Hey All, Hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. I have a 2014 Silverado that has recently lost the passenger side low beam. The headlights will turn on when starting the truck and then flicker and the passenger side goes out within about 10 seconds. The driver's side continues to operate as normal and the high beams also operate as normal. If I turn on the headlight switch with the truck not running the headlights will both stay on. Once the truck starts the passenger bulb shuts off. I had this in to the dealer since it was looking like a BCM issue and I have no way of testing or programming a new BCM. They diagnosed and said the BCM was bad. Essentially they replaced the BCM with no results and they replaced the underhood fuse panel with no results. They said when the light quits they are not getting power out of the BCM for that headlight. So it is either a BCM input or something in the BCM. They did find a code (after performing the "repairs") and that code was a "short to ground" code. They did not give me the code number. Has anyone had this? Right now this is the only issue. I've read about ground issues and will check those on Saturday but I am not experiencing any other electrical issues so I am doubting I have a dash ground issue. I appreciate any help you all can give. Thanks, Derek
