2016 Canyon stalling
Sean Riley posted a question in 2015-2022 Colorado & Canyon TroubleshootingHey everyone, thanks for the add! Got myself a 2016 Canyon SLE. I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas about something I've been looking through forums for before going to a shop. I was driving it to lunch and as I was turning, it completely stalled out on me. Battery was still on but no acceleration as if the engine cut off yet no indicators popped up on the dash. I quickly threw it in park, turned it off completely and restarted it no problem and its still driving smooth with no other issues. There anyone with the same problem before or ideas of what it might be?
No power No power, no instrument panel
Doc1310 posted a topic in 2000-2014 Silverado & Sierra HDGood afternoon, Newbie to this site. We have inherited a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 from a uncle who has passed away. It has 76000 miles on it and has been garage kept. Upon receiving it I had it looked over by Goodyear service center since I was concerned about the brakes. They found nothing wrong but sold me services that I really didn’t need....my fault there. The dealer found lots of problems with the brakes at a cost of 2500.00. They now work fine. The reason for that intro is I’m wondering if Goodyear service did something to my truck, some type of sabotage, like they did to me 20 years ago with some radiator hoses, so last night I went to move the truck to use another vehicle, it had no power, no lights of any kind, no instrument panel. So I trickle charged it all night. Come this morning the charger light was green so I tried to start it, again, no power. I tried jumping it with a electrical starter that I had bought my uncle for times like this. It would not jump, I tried that machines trickle feature and it sounded and flashed like a turn signal...tick....tick...tick, so I pulled the battery and had it tested. It had 9 volts and the service tech said things didn’t look right, so I bought a new battery. Now we come to the good part. Placed the new battery in, made sure it was clamped down, the terminals were protected with a battery spray, everything looked good and when I hooked up the terminals the horn would blare and the lights would flash causing me to jump. I tried postive first and then negative first, I checked fuses, I checked the grounds that I could find, all in a 100+ degree day. So I figure it electrical but not sure how to track it down. The vehicle is stock and has never had a problem like this before. I have read that changing out the neg. battery cable might work, but this seems a bit different. I still think it might be sabotage for more business from Goodyear, but I hope not. Any ideas on where to start looking or things to check to provide more clues? Thanks to all.
No Power At Fuse Box for Trailer Lights
jkrosky posted a topic in 2015-2019 Silverado HD & Sierra HDI have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD High Country with 6.6 diesel equipped with tow package. It has dedicated trailer brake and trailer fuses within the primary fuse box under the hood. My passenger side trailer blinkers and brake lights are not working. I've traced the lack of 12v power all the way up to the 10a fuse dedicated to the right side trailer brake/signal light (fuse #17). I have replaced the fuse, re-tested, and still no power. The left side trailer brake/signal light (fuse #14) has 12v power going to it, tested on the top of the fuse when the flashers are on, but the right side has nothing. I've also swapped and then replaced the trailer parking lights relay switch (relay #63) and still nothing. Is this most likely an issue with fuse box or something else supplying power or ground to the fuse box? Thanks for the help... this is the craziest thing.
HELP, NO POWER
time2fish posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I'm an idiot, I went to install a new battery and put it in backwards. I put in in correctly and had no power. I replaced the 175A mega fuse, but still, no power. I'm not sure what else to do next. I gotta get to work in the morning.
I had a strange problem with my '03 GMC Sierra but was able to figure it out and thought I'd post a summary in case someone else can benefit from it. The symptoms were random and odd. The ABS/Brake dash lights would come on every couple weeks and the chime would go off a million times, then started happening more often and finally started happening when I'd turn the key to the "on" position before starting the engine. I figured it had something to do with the ABS module maybe and would look into it, except that when it got really bad it was at the same time my A/C blower and electric windows wouldn't work. AND, the transmission would go into "limp mode" and stay in third gear. I figured it had to be related since it all started going bad within one day, then the truck wouldn't start at all, luckily in front of my house. I suspected the ignition switch since that's a place where multiple components are powered. I grabbed a good used switch (I work at a wrecking yard) and swapped it out and that didn't help so I checked power to the switch. One wire was hot going to the switch but when I rotated the wheel to acc and on positions only a ocuple wires lit up out of eight! Good switch but power not being distributed. Turns out that there's two power wires that go to the switch, in my case both red wires (some schematics show red and red/wht) and the other red wire was dead. I checked it at the fuse box and it had power, probed the wire from the fuse box to as far as I could toward the fire wall and had power, then started at the switch and probed the wire past the big connector under the dash as far back to the firewall as I could and it was good (continuity test). So I decided I had a bad power wire at the firewall somewhere. In my book this is weird, I've never had something like that happen before, but the bad wire was buried in the wire loom so much that I decided to cut the wire at both ends and solder a new "patch" in. Everything worked! The A/C and windows have worked perfectly for three weeks and the transmission never showed a problem again. The only disappointment has been the ABS/Brake lights lighting up once in the past three weeks. Not sure what to think about that yet. Sorry for the long explanation but I think it's all important. Hopefully no one else ever has this problem... Dan
2001 Silverado 5.3L loss of power
Kelson posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I have a 2001 Silverado z71 5.3L with 102,000 miles. The truck has a noticeable amount of power missing. On the slightest freeway incline I have to drop a gear to be able to maintain speed. I towed a 10' trailer with a truck bed on it(short bed) and the truck was really struggling. Off the line is not great either. The truck has 37" tires but I do have it geared to 4.88 so it should not struggle at all. Anyways, I've replace the spark plugs/wires, fuel filter and nothing. Figured it was probably clogged cats so I just gutted the cats all together. There is absolutely no difference. I'm at a loss. Any ideas?
Hello all, I am new here and yesterday I posted some questions that I really need help with in 2 locations because I didn't know where to post them correctly. Consequently, I never got any answers maybe because the admin deleted them both. My bad, I honestly didn't know where the right place was. So here are a couple of my primary concerns with this truck, if anyone can help I would appreciate it... The dealer had my truck for 6 days to replace a broken dash piece and to troubleshoot driving issues. During the test drive, the service (manager?) stomped the gas to the floor and we both heard a metallic sound, he repeated it numerous times and the sound always came back. To me it sounded like a couple of lifters that were about to shoot out from under the hood. We went back to the dealership where I was asked to wait while he and the shop foreman went for a drive. When they returned I was told that it was "just and exhaust noise" and it was "perfectly normal". They insisted I take a drive with the shop foreman even though we all agreed that I feel issues that they believe to be normal for this vehicle, so the test drive was pointless. Nonetheless, we drove. I showed how when I step on the gas to take off the engine seems to bog down and lack throttle response, I also showed how at each and every stop the truck shakes like it is having an epileptic fit. The explanation I got was that this was the active fuel management system just doing its job and it was "perfectly normal". Call me crazy but I just can't wrap my head around a new vehicle of any type, but especially not a 54K vehicle shaking like crazy, rattling under heavy throttle and lacking the power to get out of its own way to be "perfectly normal". But maybe I am wrong, any thoughts or advice would be super appreciated. Thanks
No power to fog lights
ianmac23 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500My fog lights just stopped coming on. I checked the fuse under the hood and it is good and there is no power going to the bulb. Is there another fuse I should look for or do you guys know what something else I should look for? Thanks for the help Ian
