Trucks Shuts Off!

Recommended Posts

I had this problem on my 2016 Sierra, someone said to Google G218. I did. I cleaned the dash grounds and replaced the negative cable off the battery. I also took a grinder and totally cleaned where the cable connects in the passenger wheel well and then sprayed it with undercoating. My truck hasn't shut off since.

My truck is "shutting off" while driving! It is typically at low speeds while making a turn or putting car back in gear from a stop. The power steering locks up & I loose all power. This is extremely dangerous, I have read several other reports of this happening. A stabilitrak message appears, then says to lower driver side window upon restart. The radio is reset to like 87.7 (the default station), as if you had dis/reconnected the battery.



Did anyone find a solution to this? I’m experiencing this exact issue.

I’ve had this issue as well, except mine almost killed me! I just replaced the alternator and battery about 2 months ago and out of the blue it dies mid drive on the highway during rush hour going 75 mph. Lost all power and no power steering and almost crashed head on into a guard rail. The battery and alternator are brand new and this will be the third brand new battery I have put in it so there has to be another underlying issue that I am not seeing, if anyone has any insight on this please let me know. I have always been a Chevy guy but I also had this same issue with my 2011 Camaro. Chevy is t doing me justice right now
