Everytime i turn on my truck i get a message saying ,"steering assist reduced drive with care"

I took it to the dealer but they didnt want to work on it sence its lifted and all of the warranty is voided. Sounds like bs to me?? Any one with similar issue ?!?!? Its a 2017 silverado z71

I would honestly try to find another dealer that will still honor the rest of your warranty and not deny all claims because the truck is lifted, depending on your location that could prove difficult. Are you noticing any issues when driving the truck?

 

It looks like  there was another thread on this issue: 

Your truck could be having the same problem or a different problem, but it really needs to be scanned to better determine what is wrong with the steering.

All this started happening after the lift was installed? If so take it the shop that did the work. If that doesn't pan out talk to the dealer and possibly pay for a check up of some sort?

No i had the lift for abt 4 months,  it just started like 2 weeks ago, it always ran good.

Then one day at the dunes the 4x4 disengaged and i got stucked, then a hot transmision messaged popped up, then i left to get pulled out and 4x4 started working again, but everytime i turn on the truck "the steering asisstance reduce " pops up and it doesn't seem to affect the driving. But when i go to the sand dunes now the 4x4 seems like its not as strong as before???? It sucks its a new truck:/

Well that complicated things a bit. I would not tell any dealership this information or you will definitely be denied a warranty claim.

 

I would do a thorough check of all the front end components and any wiring that may be exposed up front to ensure that sand is not anywhere causing electrical interference or jamming a rotational mass up.

 

To check if 4wd is actually working or if it is just in your head that it is less effective now, I would put the truck on a lift and engage 4wd and see if all 4 tires spin

Key words in this thread, "I went to the sand dunes", I'm sure that all the truck manufacturers build and warranty their trucks for normal 4x4 duty, snow and icy conditions, muddy back roads in the woods, etc. Extreme off-roading like dune climbing and rock crawling, not so much. Most of the extreme off-roaders build to the max an older out of warranty vehicle for such endeavors.

I had this message coming up every time I started my truck after I installed my heated steering wheel.  I am not sure of the exact cause (turning the steering wheel without the key on to take off the airbag/ disconnecting the clockspring???) but I own an EFILive autocal for my diesel that allows me to read and clear codes so I tried it on my truck.  It did not read any codes but I did a "clear codes" anyway and after that the message stopped.

 

If you can got to a place that scans codes for free or have a buddy with a tuner that has that capability it my be worth a try.

 

Good luck.

      Okay so I broke my foot a last month so my truck has been sitting during the winter. Just recently the check engine light has came on. 
       
      I used my code reader and is said the thermostat was running cold. 
       
      And the engine fan automatically comes on and stays on for a little even after I turn the truck off. 
       
      My question is there a simple fix to this? Or would this require a replacement?

      I have a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. Ok internet gurus, need your advice here. When I'm using my camper, I would disconnect my tailgate review camera and hook up the camper, on my last trip, I got careless and accidently left some slack in the camper wire harness and it landed on the muffler. Needless to say, I didn't notice any issues pulling out of my driveway but by the time I got to where I was going the wire insulation had melted through and stuck to the muffler. I'm assuming that it grounded out and then shorted something out. I disconnected it at camp and when I reconnected the tailgate camera the blue screen and service rear video displayed. I had hooked up the camper probably a couple dozen times since I owned the truck and also coincidently I broke off the little clip that hold the tailgate wire on this trip so didn't worry that it wasn't working at camp because it wasn't tight. I ordered a new tailgate camera and hooked it up, still didn't work. I ordered a new wiring harness for the camper and tried that, still didn't work. I read through all the threads on here I could find about this problem and it basically came down to three things. 1) Fuses, 2) The Video Control Module and 3) Some type of Program update from the dealer.

      I tried checking various fuses but didn't do the Dallas Diag Guy thing of replacing the whole fuse block. Not sure I hit on the right fuse but the taillight, reverse lights and tailgate lock all work. I have had the truck for 95K miles and I take it to the dealer for oil changes so I'm assuming I'm current on software updates but I guess that's a possibility but since this is my first issue with the rearview but I don't think that's it. So, now I'm looking at the Video Control Module as a possibility or should I keep hunting for fuses. Does anyone know if 84624987 is the correct # for my 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 if I go that route? Someone posted that # and someone else posted 84691752, so not sure if that matters. Also, does anyone know what fuse I should be checking?

      The scanner shows code B127B

      Looking for what else you guys recommend to replace. I Noticed one of my tie rod grease boots was busted, planning to replace both inner and outer tie rods, sway bay end link, sway bar bushings.
       
      Anything else while I’m under there and have to get an alignment? Mileage is at 78,000 miles. 
       
      Looking to use MOOG parts. Running 33’s so if anyone else has upgraded to something beefier let me know!

      This is my first post so sorry if I’m all over the place. I’ve had my 2014 Sierra slt for about two years now. I got it with 116k miles and I’m at about 174k right now. Since the day I’ve bought the truck it’s been nothing but issues. You name it, it’s happened. Four separate water leaks (sunroof, gps antenna, third brake light, and cab vents), 2 transfer case control modules, problems with the power steering going out, brakes going out at low speeds. A couple of months ago my transmission went out and it also needed various other repairs totaling over $20k. Now my park assist sensors don’t work, my rear doors don’t open from the inside and also don’t lock from the outside, reverse lights and camera don’t work, and it constantly dings at me to service my trailer brake system (seriously, it chimes at me about every two seconds as I’m going down the road, telling me to service the trailer brakes). I’ve gone through and checked every ground I can find and nothing helps. Today I went through every single fuse and relay in the truck. I found a couple of blown fuses and replaced as needed, but still no change. I’m at a loss for what to do at this point as I’m stuck with the truck after all the money I’ve sunk into it. Does anybody maybe have any solutions to any of these problems? I’m desperate for answers, anything helps.
