2014 and up guys with funky electrical issues.

Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 that was having the same issue. Complete power failure...it seems that if I leave the truck for 5 mins and then come back it will start right up with no issues. I tore apart the dash to fix the ground issue, but there's no ground in that location on my truck. Anyone have the same issue? Did Chev not put all the grounds in the same spot...

 

Thanks!

Hi, I have a 2014 Chev Silverado Z71. I'm having similar issues. I'll have complete power failure/engine shut down intermittently, once while I was driving. I took apart the dash to fix the ground. But my truck does not have a ground in that location. Also, it seems all I have to do it wait 5 mins and everything works like normal again. Does anyone else not have the ground in that location or know what else I should look at to fix it?

 

Thanks!

With my 15 Silverado, my only electrical fluke was my forward collision alert sensors going nuts.  I posted a video of it somewhere in my album for it.

 

With my 18 LTZ ME, the Infotainment System would randomly reboot and my battery dying prematurely, a couple months ago.  Infotainment System hasn't rebooted, since I had the firmware on it flashed about a year ago, yet.  Would be my luck, it reboots on the way home from work tonight.

While vacuuming I found two more hidden grounds, one under driver and passenger seats under the vents. Mine were clean and tight, no insulation to deal with.

Thank you so much for this amazing detail!! I was able to follow the exact instructions, photos, service bulletin and the YouTube video you included that helped me get the job done myself in just a couple hours. 

 

To people reading this post currently: this only has to do with the vehicle shorting out when you hit a bump. This issue has been bothering me for about a year now and I have spent hours looking for answers. I have a 2015 Tahoe Z71 and it seemed to run better instantly after this change.
