  1. My 2102 Sierra SLT with automatic dual temperature controls recently started blowing full cold regardless of the temperature setting. It's been hot outside, so I don't mind on short trips, but on a longer ride, I keep turning the temperature up and it just keeps blowing full blast on cold, freezes you out. The outside ambient temperature reads correctly, so I'm thinking maybe the cabin temperature sensors have gone bad. I'm not sure where to find them and how to test them. Otherwise I suppose it's in the Body Control Module? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hey guys so I have a 2019 Silverado 1500LD with a 3.42 rear end with 11k on the clock. I've been noticing that my engine or coolant temp goes passed 210F but when it hits the next 1/8 gauge stick it goes back down passed the middle mark to 190°F. Is that normal for 7000 pounds uphill towing in 95°F weather. Talking about the 5N grapevine in Cali for those who know the climb.
  3. My 2018 denali changes one of the digital gauges to tranny temp when I press tow-haul. Does the 2019 AT4 with tech pkg do the same, or do you have to go in the trailering app, etc.?
  4. Good afternoon all, I'll try to make this short and sweet so here's the deal: 1) Gauge Coolant Temp wont respond. 2) I have done the necessary test with the coolant SENDING unit. (Ground out to see if it pegs hot) 3) Used Voltmeter to check for signal to sensor which it has. 4) Checked Fuses. All are good. 5) Rest of gauges work. And here's where I'm stuck. Apparently the 1995's don't use stepper motors? (I haven't taken the cluster apart yet) But if they do, I cant find the right ones. Seem to be for 1996 or 1997 and up models. This cluster does not have a conventional pigtail that plugs into it but rather the cluster "sinks" into the adapter. The circuit board is flexible. Does anyone have any info on this type of cluster? If its a simple stepper motor or resistor I can fix it. (I think, lol) However, rather than replace with a refurbished or used one where the mileage will not be correct I'd rather upgrade to a digital cluster if possible or even swap in a later model chevy cluster. Anyone know if this is possible? One thing ive found out with the 95's is that it isn't very compatible with other models. Please ask any questions that you may have. I look forward to your responses!
  5. Hey guys, I'd like to tap into the collective knowledge of the group. Can someone tell me (or show with a picture) of where the temp sensor is for the outside air? I need to figure out how to not block the wind getting to it when I'm driving with the plow on. I tried all the way up, down low, straight, angled, and nothing seemed to make much difference. The best I could get was down low to the ground and the temp reading on the center screen was telling me 60 degrees F, while the local weatherman told me it was about 0 F. on Saturday when it was a bit warmer out, the reading actually hit over 100 degrees. then my heater switched to blowing cool air. That doesn't help me much when trying to melt snow off the windshield. So, long story short, where is the sensor, and if anyone has tips on how to maintain airflow to it while plowing, that would be great. I am open to moving it right now.
  6. 2015 chevy 1500.. 3400 miles. A couple of times the heat didn't work. It always did "next time".. the other day I had to take a 3 hour drive.. it didn't work the whole way there...stopped for an hour..headed back still with no heat (it was 42* so it was not pleasant) Took to dealer - they said they cant find anything wrong, of course, and of course the he was working fine. Its only done this a couple of times in the past 2 months now. Anyone experienced anything similar? It blows out air, and it will adjust the fan speed properly (or what I'm guessing WOULD be properly if it was blowing out heat) based on the temp of the cab. Even when taken off of auto and just turned temp to hi and fan speed up, with AC button off, it was still blowing cold air. Any ideas? Could it somehow be user error? (doubtful) Also when the AC button is on, even when its on heat, is the AC really still running? seems dumb that lights always on even when you have the temp high and its blowing heat.
  7. Hello everyone! I recently just put on a 6 in bds kit and 35 in tires. I was just wondering what everyone's average transmission temperature is after their lift and tires. I have a 5.3 and 3.42 gears and I'm averaging around 190 degrees- 196 degrees in 90 degree weather. I'm just curious and as always all replies are greatly appreciated!
  8. After I parked the truck last week the fan stayed on quite a bit longer than normal after the truck was off, I didn't think a whole lot of it at the time, but a couple days ago I got a "over temperature idle engine" warning on the DIC and watched the temperature go back and forth from dead center to max a couple times. Looked at the reservoir and there was no coolant visible at all. Ran to the store in our other vehicle and bought 2 gallons of coolant. It took the full first jug and a bit from the second to bring it up to the full cold mark. I couldn't see anywhere it would be leaking from - and I've had no pool on the driveway - but there was a definite coolant smell in the engine bay. The only thing I noticed was the visible corner of the rad that you can see (driver side) there was white residue along the top edge, not 100% sure if this is coolant or not but I suspect it may be. Have an appointment for the Onstar module replacement (2G to 4G) next week so will ask them to look into it then, until then I'll keep checking and topping it off.
  9. My 1999 Silverado LT has 300+k miles and its got a temperature problem I'm worried about. Running down the highway at 75 the engine temp soars to about 235 but normal temp at 65 and below is 205-210. The temp comes down once I slow down but worried about it being a precursor to a larger problem. Also, the tranny runs at about 210°F when its warmed up and will start rising to 215 if left to idle. Everything I've read says it should be about 175°F. Any help would be appreciated
  10. Bought a 2006 Sierra crew cab w/5.3 a few weeks ago. One day it got up to around 230 degrees, I turned A/C off and it cooled back down. it was only 85 degrees outside. I also noticed it took a longer than normal time to get up to temp, so I bought a thermostat for it. Before I tried to replace thermostat, I added Peak Radiator Flush to the radiator and drove it a couple of days with no problems. When I removed the breather, to replace thermostat, I noticed it had a new water pump. It also did not have a thermostat when I opened her up. It did not have antifreeze, only water. I installed thermostat and filled with water - drove it a couple of days to work (approx. 5 miles round trip), and the gauge read exactly as my 2004 Suburban always has, just under 210. When I saw there were no leaks, and it was performing correctly, I drained water and added Dexcool and distilled water 50/50. It did fine for several trips to work until yesterday when i drove it to lunch, it did it again. I tuned heater on high and it started cooling back down. Drove home that evening with no other problems. Any ideas? Thanks
  11. Has anyone noticed that the temperature being displayed varies a lot from the actual outside temperature? I am seeing a difference of over 10 degrees, at times, and it can also be correct. It seems to display whatever it likes. I had a 2003 Silverado and the readout was always accurate by no more that 1 degree, comparing to bank displays and other reported otuside temps. I inquired at the dealership and of course they told me that it took a while for the reading to be accurate. This photo was taken after driving around for several hours.
