Chevrolet 2006 starts then slowly dies
Billybruds posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianIt’s winter here so I went out yesterday to start my truck and the battery was dead. I put it on a trickle charger for about 7 hours, boosted it up “charger said 90%” when I took it off. I went to start my truck and it fired up immediately, my wipers turned on (to brush some snow off) and radio was playing. I turned it off then went to turn it back on it again fired right up easily then within seconds it slowly shut off. It sounded like something (a pump maybe) was still running while I had my key in (not sure exactly what it was). Read some things about changing a spark plug ? I will try this any other ideas of how to fix this ? Please help
I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 I'm having a problem with my lights, at night when I turn my lights on, the blinker lights stays on in the dash, and the actual lights slightly stay on in the front, rear, and on the mirrors. When I turn a blinker on, both sides flash, and when I hit bumps or slam a door it fixes it temporarily or makes them work slightly better. My headlight dims and brightens aswell when hitting bumps or slamming a door. The turn signals work fine when the headlights are not on.
