  1. Hey guys, I have a problem I can't solve and I'm hoping someone here can help. Last night I was driving my 2011 GMC Sierra 2WD 5.3L and pulled into a gas station. When I got back in the truck I turned the key to the start position but nothing happened besides the dash going black. I didn't hear the starter click and I didn't hear the fuel pump turn on. So far here's what I've done: Tried to jump the car, no success. Took the battery to get tested and it's fine. Switched the relays around to see if something else would quit working and the truck would start, but same outcome. I jumped the two big connectors on the back of the starter and the starter turned over, but the truck never started it actually kept turning even with the power off and didn't stop until I disconnected the battery I replaced the battery in the remote but this didn't fix anything. I thought it might be anti-theft related but the the light on the dash isn't on for the alarm and the truck locks and unlocks with the remote. I connected a scanner to it and am able to see the ecm getting an ignition signal when I turn the key to start Through the scanner I can see that the ECM recognizes that the transmission is in park/neutral Has anyone ran into this before? Is there anything else that would prevent it from starting and cause a no crank, no fuel, no start issue that I need to check? The monitor I'm using has the ability to check basically any sensor value. Thanks!
  2. My buddy just got a 2017 Sierra SLT Z71 after his old truck died. The Sierra has a 4" Rancho lift kit on it that the previous owner had installed. To keep a long story short, my buddy & I drove to the shop where his old truck was located to pick it up as they were able to make it driveable. He drove his old truck back & I followed him in the Sierra. He lives on a farm with narrow dirt roads & I had to move over to the far left of the road as there was a tractor going in the opposite direction. I hit a roughly 7" deep pothole that I couldn't see as there was grass around it while trying to get around the tractor. After arriving at my buddy's house we both noticed the left front wheel grinding on the well when I turned in, & also that the truck is a little more than 2" lower on the left side than the oppsosite side (Please see pictures, I've uploaded 2 of the side that is lower). My biggest concern is that after spending nearly 2 hours looking over everything, we can't locate the reason for the leaning. Since I was driving it I'm going to have to pay for it, & neither of us are mechanics, so I would greatly appreciate any information as to what the issue could be, if anyone in here has experienced the same thing & what was needed to fix it, etc. Sorry for the long post, I'm new to this. *Edit* After very carefully going over the undercarriage pictured below we discovered a crack in the control arm (albeit a small one) & also discovered that the sway bar link on the driver's side is bent fairly badly. Hopefully that's all it is but I'm wondering if those two things alone can account for a 2" drop & the wheel being off center.
  3. Good Evening all. apologize for the novel but bear with me...I need a hand troubleshooting before the local dealer takes me to sizzlers. 2006 GMC Sierra 1500. Dual manual Climate controls. Crew Cab. 5.3 Liter. I have an issue with the air conditioning ceasing to cool while driving after about 20 minutes (what seems). The only way I can get the truck to start cooling again (compressor to re-engage) is if I restart the vehicle ( or if I plug in the OBDII Code tester, more on that later). I have taken the vehicle in for service twice. Once to check the refrigerant level which was fine. Second time they replaced the low pressure cycling switch off the dryer/accumulator (which seemed to be a common fix according the internets). All with no joy. I have a OBDII scanner and it shows no codes. Today I made the connection that the compressor seems to stop when I bring the system off full dual cool to a warmer setting where the truck should be trying to maintain a cabin temp instead of full blast. Once all the fans slow down is when I seem to lose the compressor and the cooling even if I try full cold again. I repeated this failure while driving 3 times. However, while parked this issue doesn't seem to happen cycling the full cold to warmer.. cabin maintaining and back to cold. Very frustrating. Final note: while checking the last time while driving and the compressor had stopped I brought it back to my garage... plugged in the scanner prior to restart to see if a code had popped. When I plugged that scanner in.. the truck did its normal thing being tested (kinda a flash on the dash).. however it also "reset" the compressor and it started again... and cooling like a champ without a restart. So in a nutshell this is where I am. Refrigerant is good. low pressure cycling switch is new on the accumulator. Lose the cooling/compressor when the cabin is not full blast and maintaining cabin temp. Restart will bring compressor back to life or plugging in OBDII scanner. So pretty sure the mechanical side is good. What is next to check or replace? HVAC control head? check another sensor? Please help. Sorry about the novel.. but been at this for a while. Hagendaus
  4. I have a 99 Silverado 1500 4.8L standard cab manual. Recently, just after making a turn (both left or right) from a stop or slow roll, I sometimes hear a loud, brief buzz on the drivers side somewhere behind me, just a second or two after pressing the accelerator (normal, not hot rodding). It sounds electronic or hydraulic. Has happened in both 1st and 2nd gear. It’s not a vibration, grind, or constant hum. It sounds similar to but much louder than the sound made by new vehicles when you engage the electronic parking brake. It’s hard to tell exactly where it’s coming from, maybe near the fuel tank but not the fuel pump. Everything seems to be working normal and nothing looks broken or out of place underneath. Anyone have any idea what this is?
  5. Hello, I have a 95 GMC Sierra K1500. A couple of months ago a problem arose. Every once in a while after starting the truck, when it is put in gear and goes a couple of feet, the back left tire completely locks up. It will roll in reverse, but will not go forward. After turning the truck on and off and switching it in and out of gear it will at random let go. Recently, in one of my attempts to get it moving again, the truck was put into 4WL, This seemingly forced the tire to turn. The sound of something clanging into place occurred and the truck was again mobile. What could the problem be?
  6. Today I was driving down the highway when all of the sudden my radio froze up. It was on XM at the time so I tried to switch it to iPod or regular radio and it wouldn't let me do anything. I pulled to the side of the road and turned off my truck and opened the door thinking that it would reset the radio and go back to normal but even with the truck off and door open the screen still stayed in its frozen state. I then sat there and waited for about 5 minutes and the screen finally went off so i restarted my truck and guess what...the screen is black and doesn't come on at all. Let the truck sit for a few hours and it is still in the same state. Not only is the screen black but none of the buttons around it are lit, as you can see in the attached picture. Everything in this truck must be linked to the my link screen because now my backup camera, phone bluetooth, and voice commands all do not work. Also, when I put my blinkers on they do not make the clicking sound and when i turn my engine off the interior leds no longer come on. Also, when the key is in and the door is open it no longer chimes. I will try to call the dealership tomorrow and get an appointment on Friday but can someone please tell me what is going on?? Did I mention that my truck is not even 3 months old yet and only has 4,000 miles. Please Help!
  7. Hello. I had problems with my heated seat and had to change the Master Door Window switch on the driver side. when i took the old switch out the the door chime was working. after a few moments it stopped working. the next day i got the new switch and installed it and the only thing it would turn on was the driver window. Locks didnt work from that door, passenger windows dont work from that door. i unhooked the battery for a few moments to see if it would fix it. Now im getting warning on my screen as in, service 4 wheel drive, service tire monitoring system, hood open (even though its closed) My seat wont move on the driver side.Blinkers dont work, Break lights stay on. i can turn the key on and the lights will come on but the switch to turn them off and to parking dont work they just stay on. Fog lights dont work. FOB key wont work. I have no clue what happened. anyone have any guidance on this? 2011 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ 5.3L V8 Crew Cab
