I have an unusual issue with my truck that started this morning. I tried to start my truck with the key fob remote start however it didn't start the truck. I was able to start it with the key however after using the truck i turn the truck off as usual and 5 minutes later i went to start it and nothing. when i put the key in the ignition the chime doesn't work, the engine wont crank, the key fob doesn't work ,essentially it like the battery is completely dead however i was able to start it the GMC app. \But even when ot was running i put the key turn it into the on position and it was like the key was engage. I can do everything (put the truck in gear etc) but the engine will not run or crank. I was able to get it started eventually (i don't know how) and the service engine light came on. I brought it the dealer to get the code and they said something about high voltage code however until they can look at they don't know if its under warranty or not.

My question is has anyone experience this or have any suggestion? Any help would be greatly appreciated

.

Best Regards

If it is the original battery, replace it. Remote start will not work because of the CEL that you had.

      Bought this vehicle brand new. I love it, and perfect for myself, my family, and the fact it's Diesel puts the cherry on top for me. But... now things have started. We have currently 1,137 miles on the vehicle and had the first message populated:
       
      - Service steering column lock. (see photo)
       
      Everything else worked, remote start, standard start, and the vehicle had zero issues. The following day from our road trip, we had to go to the DMV with our out-of-state paperwork to submit for plates. My wife now received a new message. 
       
      - Service emissions system. See owners manual. (see photo)
       
      She drove to the DMV and left to get the smog paperwork. Then a new issue: 
       
      - Vehicle remote start isn't working. (see photo)
       
      She is in the car and tries to start... Nothing. She tries again. It starts, and she drives it to a local dealer. They come to look and scheduled us for an appointment. She drives the vehicle now, and Onstar now shows the emission issue. ( see photo ) We now can't register the vehicle in California, because, the check engine light is on, emissions warning, and they won't smog it until it's corrected. 
       
      Awesome... 
       
      I noticed that none of these issues happened until it updated the software in the vehicle. I'm hoping this is something that can be fixed. I've been looking around for answers and only finding more issues that are all pretty shitty. Sorry, no better way to say it. I've also seen a post of people saying, “deal with it, it's a new breed of vehicles,” etc. I’d challenge that answer. No one should pay this much for a vehicle and face these issues I'm reading about. 
       
      So here's what I'm going to do, document everything, and I mean everything. This will be for everyone who may have this issue now or who may come across it. 
       
      My opinion...but I'm not a mechanic, is that there is a massive software and hardware issue with these models. I believe GM internally has to know about this from Dealers, Customer Service, Compliance Reports, etc. I'm sure all issues are in the queue to be address or fixed. I do, however, feel with the challenges of physical hardware that they chose a vendor that was most cost-effective, which is a component of these issues a long with the capability to support the software complexity of the current models. 
       
      Or maybe I'm just wearing a tin hat, who knows. 
       
      So, I open this up to you. Any advice, similar issues, outcomes you've faced, and other topics, please comment below. 
       
      May the journey of dealership visits begin. Hopefully, this journey isn't to long.

      My 2015 Silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab has about 110000 miles on it. It just started having an issue that I cannot seem to fix. The engine stays running when I turn the key to the off position and remove it. The accessories turn off normally and the RAP seems to be working. Meaning the radio and things turn off when I open the door....this truck is all stuck with the exception of a light bar. I’ve already pulled the light bar fuse at the battery hookup to see if that had anything to do with it and it made no change. Any ideas? Thanks

      I recently bought a 2020 Trail Boss and whenever I remote start the vehicle, the A/C is blowing on high, how can I disable this  or Adjust this?

      I have a 2017 Silverado Work Truck. Came with Factory power windows and power locks. It did not come equipped with a keyless entry system from the factory. It does not have any of the modules to add remotes for door lock entry or remote start.  Does anyone know of a kit to add these features to my truck?

      I am getting desperate for some help on this issue. I bought a 202o Silverado 1500 WT and I have been slowly adding OEM parts to it. I live in New England, so I thought a remote starter would be nice for those cold mornings. My problem is that my local dealer told me that the OEM remote starter isn't available for my truck (something about the software not having that option). I don't know how much I believe this, because an OEM starter should be pretty much universal across the 5.3L engines and computers, right? Well, I asked another dealer, and they said the starter kit isn't showing up as a possible accessory with my VIN#. I then tried to call GM directly, and got absolutely nowhere with the tech support, because the first girl had no idea why it wasn't showing up, and the second one had no idea what I was talking about. She thought I was just wondering why it wasn't showing up as an accessory on the page.
       
      I am trying to keep the truck as OEM as possible, because I really don't want a bunch of wire splices and extra key fobs to carry around. My question is, has anyone else been having this issue, and/or is this just a load of b.s. and the starter kit and new key fob with the start button will install just fine? Any information would be greatly appreciated about why my WT can't have the remote starter kit installed. (Last eight of the VIN is LG141071)
