This morning I started the truck up and I could see the lights on the dash were flickering like there wasn't enough power, and then the battery light popped on. I restarted the truck and the problem went away, was headed to work so figured I would look at it later.
Drove to town with no issues, then parked, when I went to put it in reverse, it died and the battery light popped again. Started it up and no problems. Got to work and parked, and it stumbled like it was going to die, then recovered but all the electrical shut off, like the radio restarted, and the voltage meter was reading low(it usually fluctuates between 14 and 15.5ish, this was around 11. Restarted and now it seems fine again.
Battery is about 3 years old, alternator is maybe a year and a half. Not sure what to start looking at for intermittent issues like this.
I have a 2006 GMC 2500. The problem I have now is dimming of the DIC and mirror display. I can be driving on a bright sunny day, and at any time the DIC will dim. The mirror temp and compass display will also dim and will be unreadable it is so faint. The two displays will dim at different times. I have auto-on lights and daytime running lights.Is this related to the cold solder issue I see in other topics?

61872730218__99E50898-03B8-416E-B2E1-D303018DE498.MOV Hello All,
I have a 2001 Chevy 1500hd that won’t turn over/start with other electrical issues as well.
-went to start truck after not using it for a few days and the battery was dead
- Boosted it with a booster pack, it started and ran for 1 second and then quit.
- charged battery from an other vehicle and won’t even turn over. The dash only has volt meter, and backlighting working. Since then I have triple charged the battery. When you turn the key to the on position the lights come on, the radio works, voltmeter works, check engine light comes on and transfer case indication works. There is no PRND321, odometer, batt light, airbag, seatbelt etc....
when you push and hold the odometer reset button all the normal lights do come on.
if you try start. You can here a faint relay click.
if I energize the 10 amp crank fuse on the side of the dash the truck starts and continues to run.
i have checked fuses, start relay, and battery post connections

Hey guys. I'm trying to add a line out converter for my 2020 GMC 3500hd. I'm stuck trying to get the last 2 bottom screws to remove the actual deck portion . There is a strip of plastic between the dash and the center console (SLT version). Is there a truck to getting this piece of plastic out without damaging it. I don't know if it's clipped or screwed. I've included a pic. Also, which color is the ANC wire? I heard you have to clip that or else your sub will sound like crap. I've heard purple/blue or purple White.
Thanks in advance.

I recently had a heater core leak in my 1999 chevy silverado and had an ASE certified shop replace the core and inspect the ac evaporator and actuators while replacing it. When I got the truck back the center bracket where the Radio and HVAC controls mount under the trim is offset, with the left side being lower than the right side. I also noted the fold down cupholder bolt points are not completely lined up with the trim that's over it. I contacted the shop to bring it back in under warranty but was wondering if anyone has a full dashboard diagram that might illustrate where the correct positions for the bracket underneath to attach is or has had any experience with this sort of reassembly issue before (I have extensively searched and came up empty). This isn't an area I have had a lot of experience with being a near full dash teardown and I like to know more of what I'm talking about to communicate well and to be a good customer.
