  1. 2016 Denali 3500 crew cab. Passenger side brake light / turn signal lamp is not working. Running light is working. New bulbs. Is there a fuse or relay that can be checked? I have not been able to locate one.
  2. Hey guys, i have a 2005 gmc yukon with electric fans. It is the 5.3 and the electric fans will not turn on. I have replaced the coolant temp sensor and the relays and it is still inop. If i send 12v to the fans they will turn on and constant power is getting too the two 4 prong relays my tools will not fit to test the 5 prong. None of the fueses are blown either and relays have resistance to them. It has a slight hickup on startup but not much of one and sadly no they do not work with the ac on the temp will go straight past 210 when parked
  3. Hello all, i have been lurking these forums forums for some time now but I now have an issue on my hands. My 2014 Silverado 1500 lt ccsb has been intermittently displaying the theft deterrent on the DIC but the theft deterrent light hasn’t stayed illuminated until a brief moment today. I had the battery terminals disconnected for about 20 minutes, it started fine, but when I put into any gear other than park it made the noise in the attached video. I replaced the battery about 3-4000 miles ago. Thanks. 90B0E818-502A-433F-9C65-86B59BAA2383.MOV
  4. 2007 suburban k2500. 6.0/4l80e. I have a click when cranked situation no start. Also, power locks cycle every time it’s cranked. If you hold the key in the crank position it’ll click every few seconds. With the key in the on position I’ve had multiple windows roll themselves down, locks cycle, all kinds of dash lights. So far I have replaced the battery, the starter, main power wire from fuse block to battery, starter power wire to battery, I’ve cut the end off the alternator power to battery cable and terminated all these wires with a different style battery clamp. I am bypassing the 175 amp megafuse. All 2 gauge wire. To my knowledge the oem battery cables are shit so I opted to make my own. On the ground side I’ve replaced the chassis ground to battery wire, the engine to battery ground wire, and I’ve added an engine to body ground wire to rule out the. Braided ground strap on the back of the drivers side cylinder head. No blown fuses, I’ve switched the starter relay with another of the same size, and nothing has changed this trucks condition. I’ve tried tilting the steering wheel to see if that would let the truck start and it didn’t. I’m waiting on an ignition switch to come to oreillys this evening. I’m completely lost. I removed the under hood fuse block and inspected it and didn’t see any corrosion on any connectors. I’ve heard there’s some intergrated relay in the fuse block that could be the issue but I have no idea. I just bought this truck knowing it needed a battery and brakes, drove it off a trailer and parked it and went to move it 3 days ago and got this by surprise.
  5. Hey everyone, New to the forum but I've browsed before when trying to figure out some of the issues I've been having with my 1999 Chevy Suburban 1500 5.7L 4WD. I bought the truck from my old neighbor because I needed something to tow my ski boat to the lake and back. I knew the truck was a little rough around the edges and needed some work but I was okay with that since I know how to work on cars and I only need to tow the boat about a mile round trip to/from the lake. The truck started and ran great after I bought it but it started having some odd issues. There's no communication between the scan tool and DLC. There's good power and ground to the DLC, the cigarette lighter fuse is not blown. Not sure if this is related to the rest of the problems but I think it's possible. The Check Engine Light does not illuminate when I cycle the key or turn on the vehicle. Intermittent battery drain. Since the truck was still starting and running just fine, I figured I would leave it be and I'd get around to fixing it eventually. It developed a fuel leak from the lines near the tank about 7-8 months ago and I didn't want to deal with it during the winter so I let the truck sit until the weather got nice and I was able to replace the whole fuel system from the tank to the motor (not the injection system). Before I replace the fuel system, I drove it around the local industrial park to try to run some fuel out of it and the following issues started. Truck stumbled, the Airbag light, Service 4WD light came on, but kept running. Now, the Airbag light, Service 4WD light come on every time I drive it (4WD seems to still work). Power/Heated seats inop Intermittent battery drain turned into a consistent battery drain. I put in a battery disconnect that I use every time I let the truck sit for more than a day. Power Locks inop I started to get pretty confused and started trying to find some kind of common ground or module that would explain all of these issues so I went ahead and did the fuel system work and it's back up and running again. I drove it again after the fuel system repair and even more things either stopped working or started acting weird. Radio and temperature/compass in the mirror work great at idle, but both turn off above 10-15MPH. Turn signal on/off speed varies from fast to slow and interior lights dim/brighten opposite of the turn signal turning on/off Wipers are slow/dont work at all Cruise control inop Dash/cluster lights inop Power windows slow up/down So tell me what you guys think. I'm thinking there has to be a bad ground somewhere. I'm going to go through the truck and replace/clean grounds from front to back and see what happens, although I know that G202 is behind the dash and may be a huge PITA to get to, is that accurate? Has anyone experienced something like this? Is there a module like the BCM that could be bad and bringing down the communication lines, causing the no DLC communication? Thanks in advance! Adam
  6. Amazing how ridiculously low lit the interior lights are and I bought these on Amazon which are super super bright. It has it’s own on off switch and it’s easily accessible so I don’t need to do this but just because it’s been habit so long it would be nice to use the switch to turn this on but even though it’s LED it’s probably going to draw a lot more power as the wires the OEM switch feeds for its LED is so small it looks like a human hair! LOL. So I don’t think it’s going to work using the switch as I believe the new lights will overload it unless I combine all four wires together. But I would like to use the power positive and negative coming in at least so I don’t have to run new wires. The picture is deceiving these things are really big like 12 inches long by 4 inches wide Can someone look at this harness and tell me which two wires to use and opinions on whether the switches will handle this new LED light?
  7. I was driving for about 45 minutes down the interstate in my 2014 Silverado. I went to pass a car and the cruise shut off when i turned the blinker on. The dash lights would also dim for a second when i pressed the brake or turned on the blinker. It continued to do this until i pulled into a parking lot and shut the truck off for about 30 minutes while i was in a store. I should also note that when i pulled in the parking spot it was like the power steering quit for half a second like it has done a few times before. On the 1 hour trip home it drove normally with no issues. I have had other electrical issues like diming headlights when pressing the brake and also headlights dimming in time with the blinker. Usually these problems happen when i have been driving for 45 minutes or more. My battery is about a year old so i dont think that is the issue. Has anyone else had these issues and found a fix? Thanks
  8. 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
  9. I just bought a 1991 Chevy C70 Kodiak C7H042 6.6L 403 CUI Diesel in amazingly great condition. I am now the 3rd owner of this dump truck. The first owner took great care of the vehicle, everything thing appears to be well maintained and no shade tree work. All the parts, wiring and accessories appear to be original and well maintained. However, the second owner bought this truck and never used it. It has sat in a field for about four years. To get to the point, I completely serviced the truck and replaced the batteries, checked the fuses, grounds, relays and I have absolutely no power to the truck. No interior or exterior lights and no lights on the instrument panel. What could be the issue?
  10. Yesterday, 11:28pm 2015 3500 WT Crew 4X4 SRW - Going to be upgrading several things and hard wire all my USB stuff. Surprisingly Google research shows nothing on this subject for having been done this way or location. Rather then purchase a hardwire kit with a converter step down box, isn’t there a factory one already in the vehicle for the USB port in the center consule I can tie into and where is the location of it, in the console itself? Other research shows its only a .5 amp and if so, anyone know if the box in the truck is ONLY .5 output or if it has multiple outputs? If not and factory box is only .5 amps, it’s all a waste of time! Need 2.4. Thinking now probaly easier just to install a 12 V outlet directly to battery and use the standard plug-in adapter and hide it under the dash! LOL
  11. Have 4 - 300 watt light bars on my roof rack and 4 - 103 watt cree’s on the winch mount. Decided to run all the wiring to a central location vs mix and match I did over time. So purchased a 6 rocker switch panel with 3 12V outlets, double row. Went back-and-forth a week trying to think in my head where I wanted to mount it to make it easily accessible, as I live in the mountains and when oncoming traffic is coming I need to be able to shut them off immediately! I knew overhead was the best place but didn’t want to go through the trouble. However now that it’s done it really wasn’t that much of an issue at all. I cut the sunglass holder 3/4 of the way out and it only over fills the entire consul by about a 1/4 inch. If I hadn’t already bought this panel and knew today was the only day I could do the project for a few weeks, I would have waited and not used the 3 outlets and just went with a single row panel of 6 (8 best) rocker switches as that would’ve been very neat, clean and looked much more custom! For anyone looking to do it, the absolute best looking would be 8 rocker switches on a single row panel for an absolute perfect fit! But I was impatient and wasn’t going to toss $50 out the door for the panel I had so wound up force fitting into the console. This doesn’t look horrible and I think I’ll be able to live with it but if it gets the best of me and my OCD, I can always order a new console with the 8 switches as the wiring is already there and would be a simple project. Any questions feel free to ask! I’ll post pictures shortly.
  12. Hello. My brother seems to have a bit of a weird problem. He recently swapped his belt driven fans for an electrical ones. He did all the wirings and changed the temp Sensor. Although the AC fan works fine, It seems that the radiator fan turns on instantly when the engine is cold, but when the engine reaches the operating temperature it turns off and stays off. What could cause this? Did he flip a wire somewhere?
  13. I have a 2015 SLT and would like to install an IPAD PRO 12.9 into the dash. I have to relocate the climate controls and the radio control clusters to the center console. Has anyone seen an extension for the AWM 20706 60v 105c VW-1 Ribbon that connects the radio control cluster to the board on the back of the monitor? It resembles the picture. I need a cable that is about 12 inches long. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Got an error "service charging system". After some testing it appears the "mega fuse (175a Littelfuse) PN 84095551 is what is bad. (2018 Silverado 1500). I cant find one anywhere. GMpartsdirect.com says 84460795 "replaces". I have had mixed luck with this site... some stuff WAY off. However, I cant find the part anywhere else. I know I can take it to dealer on Monday (NYE) but my fear is they will not have a loaner for me and I NEED the truck/vehicle Monday night/Tuesday. Anyone familiar with this part? Pic below
  15. I have a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado C1500 5.7. I removed the top dash piece today in order to replace the climate control unit. Seemed simple enough (I only had to disconnect the 2 wire harnesses from the dash cover). Replaced everything, cranked it, and noticed the blinkers were stuck on and the wipers wouldn't work. Pressed the hazard light button and the left blinker stayed on. Pressed it a couple more times and the blinkers eventually went off. This is when I noticed that the gear indicator light was also not working. These don't have anything to do with either wire harness that I disconnected, nor the HVAC control unit I replaced. What could cause these 2 issues to happen at the same time? I can understand that by some strange twist of fate the turn signal module died at the time of replacing the HVAC unit, but the gear indicator light too? Anyway, I've checked all fuses/relays and everything seems to be fine. Any ideas?
  16. Hello, I have a 2005 Silverado. It has about 157k miles on a 5.3L. I drive about 20 minutes to and from work, and lately my dash will start having issues while driving. It doesn't happen all of the time, and usually only lasts until I hit the gas pretty good. The radio usually loses power and intermittently goes on and off. The battery gauge will drop and the low battery light will illuminate. The door lock security light illuminated. Also, a chime will alarm during the cycle in which it happens while driving. This morning at a stop sign, I shut it off and restarted it. The gauges all acted like it was still off for a minute then jumped to proper location. Then I shifted into Drive, but the IP showed it still in Park. I drove about 1/4 mile before the doors locked and the panel first displayed as it should. It still had a failure cycle; though, until I got to work and shut it off. The automatic door locks did not unlock after I shut it off. Is this caused by a faulty battery ground for alternator issue?
  17. So I plugged in my travel trailer today and no left turn signal. Checked the bulb, all good. Didn't think it was my truck BUT, I was wrong. Test light and nothing......wait, I can see it blinking but almost non-existent. I chased all of the connectors down, cleaned them and put them back on. Same thing. Help & thanks. Clem
  18. I have a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Z71 with 8000 miles. No modifications. Great truck, almost no issues but... I have owned this truck for 7 months now, and for the second time in the last couple months, it has left me stranded for around an hour each time. When i start the truck i receive the "Power steering reduced, drive with care" message. But unlike others i have read about, i can not turn the steering wheel with all of my strength. Also the truck will drive forward in this state, but not reverse, nor will the back up camera come on. And the AC and blower wont turn on unless i spin the dial a few times. Each time i have opened the hood and pulled out and plugged back in all the (really hot!) fuses and after about an hour the issue goes away and i can drive again. Why would the fuses be so hot just sitting in the parking lot, maybe they always are. who knows. I took it to the dealership and they are trying to recreate this issue, but since its only happened twice in 7 months that's not likely. So they told me next time this happens to have it towed. How inconvenient is that though! Cant they run diagnostics or troubleshoot with the many symptoms the truck has in this error state? I was hoping someone here has an idea i can tell this dealership to try since they don't have ideas of their own. Thanks!
  19. Has anyone had any issues with their 08 silverado 1500 shorting out? I don't know if its a short, ground issue or a bad body control module. My issue only happens when I am driving over 60mph. Intermittently when hitting the blinkers or the brakes the electrical system freaks out. Gauges start going crazy, radio goes out, door locks lock and unlock over and over, airbag light comes on, abs light. Seems to be happening more and more frequently. The other day it through it into 4 low and totally died on me. Took positive lead off battery put back on fired up with no problems. I just don't want to spend money on one thing and it not being that then another and another. Wondering if anyone knows what this could be. I have no aftermarket electronics. I recorded it happening and put it on YouTube. Here is the video link
  20. I have a 2008 crew cab WT and a donor 2008 crew cab SLE I'd like all the SLE features and want to know what modules I'll need to swap without getting my BCM reprogrammed. My dealer won't do it for me. So Im ready to change all necessary modules in my truck with the donor truck including the ignition. Can you tell me if this is possible and what I'll need to do and what modules to replace? I understand they go by VIN or something. But if I get all the stuff from the donor and move it over to mine it should work without locking me out of the truck right?
  21. Does anyone know how to hook up the 12v constant power to the run lights in my trailer? They definitely work on our dodge 3500, but on my 2014 Sierra 1500 they don't. My only assumption is its not hooked up from the factory. Is it as simple as the older model GM trucks? Hook up a wire to the post by the fuse box and plug in a fuse for that location? Cheers
  22. Hey all, I will start from the beginning here. Purchased my new 2017 Sierra Elevation Edition in February 2017. Drove it off the lot with 6 miles on it. This is my first new vehicle so its been a little discerning to me that this has more issues than any used car I have owned before. A few weeks after owning the truck, my microphone stopped working for my phone calls and the onstar stopped working all together. My OnStar module died and they replaced it with a new one. About 5 thousand miles later, my trucks radio screen started randomly going black, turning off all sound, then coming back on again. It would resume where it last was, phone call still intact or radio still on the right station. This went on for about 2 weeks then my dash lit up and chimed at me, the radio turned off like it does I get a warning of a Power Steering Failure. I call my local shop and get it in there right away. The drive in, the power steering worked just fine. They said the reading came back as High Voltage, they updated the computer and sent me on my way. Fast Forward to 3 weeks later, my truck starts doing the radio off again but this time the dash lights all shut off too. I can't be sure but it seems to do it when its wet outside. It did not have problems after I was in the shop but it was also dry outside. I also noticed when this happens the voltmeter spikes high. I am dropping my truck off again the Tuesday after Christmas. Does anyone have experience with this before? The shop told me last time they have never seen this before. Thanks!
  23. Has anyone hooked up dual alternators in a 1500 Silverado? I'm dealing with a 2011 that has a 5.3. Apparently GM used to have a factory plate for older generations of the Silverado to add the second alternator. I've found a 3rd party selling an adapter plate, idler pulley and belts for $215 but it seems awfully pricey for what they're selling.
  24. 99 Silverado LS Z71 extended cab 5.3L Anyone know what this relay is for? It is fitted to the firewall on an attachment point that seems made for it, and is fitted with a proper, braided factory-looking ground strap.
  25. Hi Guys, I'm about to replace my spark plugs and wires. Keeping it OEM of course. I really don't wanna screw up the ordering as no auto store in my country has the wires. I already got the plugs but will order the wires and 758EE is what I've read is the correct wires. How do I know what coils I have? 2015 Silverado HC, 5.3 (non flex)
