#563 of 787 2011 Silverado 1500 Electrical / Computer problems
Jun 14, 2011 (12:22 am)
I have to go in to the dealership in the morning to remove the led dome lights and replace them with the factory ones, They are telling me that could be causing my problems now, which I don't see how that is causing the problem either. It seems they are guessing what the problem is since they released the vehicle after saying it was the hid headlights and I only made it a few miles up the road before loosing the accelerator pedal plus the other issues. I told the service department that i also needed a truck to drive for work and other everyday purposes, that's why i purchased one, but they said Enterprise didn't have one. They have me in a Chevy Aveo at the moment. I will have to speak the service manager in the morning. Also I don't see why I have to go to the dealership and have to do these simple light bulb changes without getting charged. I live over an hour away from the dealership and this will be my forth trip to the dealership which also brings me to my other concern, I took my truck to Parkway Chevrolet in Tomball, TX which is the closest to my house. I took it in on a Wednesday when the truck was acting up when i was driving it. the service person told me I would have to leave the truck and they might be able to look at it on Friday but no guarantee and it would probably be another week before it was finished. I said that was fine but I would need a vehicle to drive, he asked me if I purchased from them and I said no. He told me that they don't give vehicles to drive I would have rent one or to take it to the dealership that I purchased it from they might give me one. I told him that I didn't feel safe driving the truck but I could not rent a vehicle either. I asked if I could just bring it back on Friday but he said I would loose my place in line. This bad customer service is why I didn't purchased from Parkway Chevy since I experienced problems with them back in 2007 when Purchased my 2007 Silverado, that's why I went to Landmark Chevy. Ive purchased from Robbins Chevy before that's why I went back there for my 2011 Silverado. Ive only had my truck for about 3 weeks now and if I can't have this problem solved I will not be confident driving this truck since I do have to drive an hour to work everyday not to mention it is a $43,000 truck.

It seems when that in the process of putting my starter back on the positive terminal post had loosened up and wasn't getting a good connection causing the short. Even though they didn't have to Advance Auto Parts replaced my battery twice free of charge so a big thanks to them, it took me some time to figure this mess out it ended up not costing me a thing. Hope this helps someone in the future.
#565 of 787 Starting issues
Jun 15, 2011 (6:49 pm)
I have a 2007 Chevy 1500 with the 5.3 liter. It has 33,000 miles on it and I just got it about 2 months ago. I have had two occasions where I get in it in the morning and turn the key and it there is absolutely no power. After a jump it starts right up, even after shutting it off soon after the jump it starts no problems. Few weeks later, same deal. The dealer checked the battery and said it's good and they thought a relay may have stayed on. No problems for 4-5 weeks then my wife drives it and shuts it off at the gas station, she goes to start it and turns the key, no power, turns key off then on again and gets a slow labored turn over of the engine, turns key off for about a minute and again turns the key forward and it fires up like nothing was ever wrong. Battery cables are attached securely, is this a starter issue, ignition issue, or what? Thanks for any input.

#569 of 787 2005 Silverado

I have a 2005 Silverado. It has 73 000 km on it. At 40 000 km, I noticed a slip in the transmission. That is, when you start from a complete stop, there is a hesitation. I took it to the dealer (it was still under warranty) and said this was normal. This continues to occur. I have seen many posts with people experiencing the same issues. This year, my speedometer has gone wonky, going up to 120 km/h while I am just starting off; the tack has gone down to zero while driving on the highway. Finally, my driver's side window has been going down on its own over night, but not all the time. First couple of times, thought I left it down, but since we have insured it was up prior to leaving it for the night. Anyone else have similar issues? I am going back to the dealer in the morning to see what they have to say. Any advice?

I have 2010 Silverado 1500, My electrical problems started with the passenger window functioning on randomly in 2003. I thought it was because I left the window open when it rained. Then noises from behind the glove compartment, Then the fan/AC would stop working ( for three years I was able to take the keys out and restart the truck and the AC would work. now It works went it wants to. Now, water won't shoot out of the wipers, it makes the sound as if the blinker is on (the sound stops when I put my foot on the brake) the radio turns off sometimes.
I don't know but I'm thinking of replacing the relay to see if that helps.
Has Any one had these problems?

Could you clarify those years you posted? Would seem impossible to have a 2010 truck that has had problems since 2003.
