General Motors Engineering is currently working through an issue where 2019 and 2020 Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra may not start as expected during certain specific situations. Customers who have this issue are encouraged to take their truck to the dealer for evaluation.

Engineering Notice:#PIE0576A
Release Date: 8/4/2020 & Updated 11/6/20

Notice #PIE0576A Applies To:

  • 2019 / 2020 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L (L84) or 6.2L (L87) engines
  • 2019 / 2020 GMC Sierra with the 5.3L (L84) or 6.2L (L87) engines

Notice #PIE0576A Relates To The Following Condition:

An owner of the above listed trucks may observe that the vehicle will not start during a normal push of the start/stop button. This issue may also manifest during an automatic stop/start situation, where the vehicle will not automatically restart. Notes: DO NOT TAKE YOUR TRUCK TO A DEALER ABOUT THIS NOTICE UNLESS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED THESE EXACT SYMPTOMS. THIS IS NOT A COMMON PROBLEM

Causes Related To Notice #PIE0576A:

GM engineering does not currently have a fix for this rare issue. If owners experience either of these no-start issues, the company would like dealerships to ask customers questions about the circumstances of the no-start condition.

Those questions include:

  • Was the vehicle parked and for how long?
  • Was the vehicle being driven during the no start condition?
  • Was it a failure to normally start or a failure to restart after a start/stop event?
  • Did the owner hear any abnormal noises during the event?
  • Was the vehicle jump started or attempted to be jump started?
  • How many times has this condition happened?
  • How did the customer or technician eventually get the vehicle started?
  • Are there any aftermarket accessories currently plugged into the vehicle?

If Your 2019/2020 Silverado/Sierra Has Had A “No Start” Condition:

Take it to your dealership and mention this notice number. Be prepared to answer questions similar to those mentioned above about the no start condition.

If you have not experienced a no start condition that exactly fits this notice you are not affected and there is nothing you need to do.
