Thank you for your response Sarah. With the symptoms I've given does it sound like one of my remaining warranties would cover this? I am thinking of taking my truck into a gm dealership. I work in Raleigh (zip code 27605).

I had the same issue also on my 2006 GMC ! It's probably not the gas cap! I had the same code for 3 months and it would always reset itself after I filled up with gas. When I got down to 1/2-3/4 it would come on and you could bet on it! I finally found the problem myself!!! NO THANKS TO THE DEALER after getting HOSED by them for alot of polution bullshit-canisters-etc, approx.800$ worth!, it was the map sensor by the air filter! Just go and buy a can of map sensor spray, remove it, be carefull the small wires are sensative and might break, spray, and let soak, respray and use very little air to dry or let air dry!
I found this problem, on mine was caused by my new K&N airfilter oil! Now I get another mile to the gal.

I'm afraid that I don't have the technical expertise to say one way or another. Were you looking to locate a dealer in Raleigh? I'd recommend visiting the Chevrolet brand page - you can find nearby dealerships through their "Find a Dealer" tool. If we can be of further assistance, feel free to get in touch at socialmediagm.com
All the best,

#702 of 768 ABS /Brake/ & StabiliTrak Lights
May 06, 2012 (7:32 am)
Thought I would post my problem in this thread as well. I have a 2007 Sierra, 27k (new body style), when I start in up the ABS and Stabili Trak lights stay on and after a couple of seconds the Brake light will come on. I disconnected the battery cables for about 1 hour, thinking this might reset the computer but the alarms did not clear. I then took it to Advanced Auto Parts and they scanned it with their Actron CP9580 and it showed "No Code Detected." They recommended a local auto care service department which I am scheduled to take it in a few days. The truck seems to drive just fine but I am concerned about these 3 lights staying on. If anyone has any helpful information that I can pass along to the service department it would be appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to post your concerns and experience. I would recommend speaking with your dealer of choice. Let me know how things go at the dealer. Please feel free to email me directly at SocialMediaGM.com. Please include your VIN, and current mileage. I look forward to your response.

#704 of 768 loss of instruments
May 23, 2012 (6:44 pm)
I have a 2009 silverado VIN 3gcek233x9g248265 with 66250 miles. Tonight after a 30 min drive I stopped and turned the truck off for about 20 minutes. When I resumed my trip i noticed that the only instrument that was functioning was the volt meter. no speedometer, no tach, no change in the odometer for the entire six mile trip, no fuel gauge. the A/C, radio and engine were running fine. The only warning light was the ABS light. After two engine start and stop cycles everything seems to be back in order.

Odd, that sounds like the problem that 2003 and 2004 had with their dashes. GM had sent us letters, but would only agree to replace the defect up until 70,000 miles. Friend had his dash replaced on his 2004 at his cost after about 72,000 miles.

Good morning burtm,
I checked your VIN to see if there were any open recalls on your vehicle, and there are not at this time. Given your mileage, you are outside of your Bumper to Bumper warranty but still within the following warranties until the date or mileage indicated (whichever comes first):
Emission Select Component Ltd Wty until 11/30/2017 or 80,231 MI
Powertrain Limited Warranty until 11/30/2014 or 100,231 MI
Corrosion Limited Warranty until 11/30/2015 or 100,231 MI
If you were to decide upon visiting a dealership to have this concern looked into, please let us know as we're available to assist in the process in whatever way we can. It may be a good idea to wait until this matter occurs more frequently if you decide upon this route. There would be a diagnostic fee involved and the technicians would need to be able to duplicate the event or have engine codes to read in order to move forward in the repair process.

#707 of 768 GM has some hutzpah posting on this thread
May 24, 2012 (11:18 am)
I have a hard time believing that a US company with the advertising slogan "Like a Rock" that has produced trucks with basic design and components purchased with the "lowest bidder" approach would have the gall to respond in this thread. The cheap, defective stepper motors used in Chevy dashboards are a disgrace and the fact that Chevy is standing on mileage instead of stepping up and just replacing the defective parts is pathetic. Defective is defective, no matter how many miles a vehicle has on it. And to think the American taxpayers bailed GM out......next time I vote no. Clean up your mess, GM.
#708 of 768 Intermittent Throttle Closure
May 25, 2012 (7:18 am)
I will try to explain. I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 4 wheel drive Z71. While driving down the road at no particular speed...could be 20 or 65mph, all das lights come on and throttle closes. Acts like a stall. After approximately 1 second, throttle re-opens and dash lights disappear and return to normal. Feels like truck stalls and restarts on its own while going down the road. I have taken the truck to a GM dealer and had a scan done and no errors are reported. Do i just wait until it dies on the road? What is causing this. Everyone seems perplexed.'
