Ok guy, I'm getting beat up on this one. 2015 Silverado, headlights flickering and a few other strange electrical issues. I've done the following: - new battery -new alternator -cleaned up ground connections- 2 on the front near the tow hooks, 1 on the frame that goes straight to the battery, the ever famous G218 in the left corner of the dash -new negative battery cable -took to dealer that did "thorough check" and still found nothing Still have flickering headlights and if I hit my window up switch when the windows are already up all the electrical in the dash goes dead for a few seconds and comes back. I'm ready to set this thing on fire. Any advice is appreciated.
I have a 09 chevy 2500hd 6.0The truck has a slight light flicker in most all of the lights(head lights , marker lights and interior lights.)I checked the battery ground wire, cleaned all cables ends and mount surfaces, change the alternator and battery. Then a few days later the the lights are flickering again. Dealer tells me this is normal, power on demand or something like that. Any help here would be great, this is really starting to tic me off.
Hey Guys, I have a 2006 Silverado 1500HD 4WD. Since I bought it, the headlights and ALL interior lights(cluster, radio, cabin lights) have dimmed/flickered while the engine is running.I Figured it was the light switch, and i would replace it when i got to it.... Yesterday, I was idling at an intersection, and all the electronics started seriously dimming and then died. the engine was still running(BARELY) and i was next to a grocery store so i limped it in to the parking lot with the power in and out, and it died. But before it died, the dash read "SERVICE CHARGING SYSTEM" & "SERVICE BRAKE SYSTEM".... Thing is, I just re-did the brakes less than a year ago, so I'm thinking it's all related and the brakes are fine. So far I have checked and cleaned the ground to the frame(down below the battery.... are there other points in need of cleaning??), both battery terminals, the connections in the little red fusable link box to the alternator, and the connection going into the alt. from that box. I also took the Alternator into O'reilly first and it passed. My old battery was a little low, so i just bought a new one as well. The BRAND NEW battery is testing 13.5 while running, with a load or without a load, and tests around 12 while off. I saw something about a MEGA fuse on the passenger firewall, but it is not there on my truck. I watched a YOUTUBE video on a '04, and so i know where it is on that model but mine isn't there. Has anyone had this problem, and WHAT WAS YOUR SOLUTION?!?!? Thanks in advance. EDIT: after typing this something occurred to me.... the previous owner had a remote start system installed, which also locks and unlocks the doors. My FOB died so i wasnt using it for about 6 months, but started again about 2 weeks ago. I did not use it at all yesterday or anytime for maybe 3 days before the issues.... could this be causing it? I mean, I'm not using the system while the issues are popping up, and it's low-voltage so my gut says it's not the problem, but maybe?
