Have you tried releasing the parking brake? My 2006 GMC 1500 HD Sierra 4X4 does this everytime I apply too much parking brake. As soon as I release it everything works fine. It may have to do with adjustment to the parking brake assembly. I also sometimes get a message the 4 wheel drive needs service, but releasing the parking brake takes care of that too. I haven't been stranded sisnce.

My truck wont start. The battery is fine and as I try and turn it on it just clicks. I am very disappointed with Chevrolet. I have a 2003 Ford Sport Trac and I have never once had a problem with it and I bought it new. I previously went to Cavendar Chevrolet in Boerne and reported that the transmission kept kicking. They said there was nothing wrong with it. I know for a fact in doing research that my truck of same year, make and model is not the only one with that problem. Things also keep breaking off like the adapters for chargers and the aux cord hole is unusable because it has too much static. The paint on the radio buttons are missing and the what is worst, there are cracks near the air bag on the dashboard. I hope I dont get in an accident before that gets fixed. Simple things made on a supposed tough truck should not be happening. I will start my long process tomorrow of trying to find out what needs to be done. It is ridiculous that this much time and effort be spent on a new truck.

I have posted to this site many times about my 2006 GMC Sierra 1500HD 4X4 not starting. It has almost become comical that all I need to do is release the parking brake and the truck starts. Sometimes I get a message the 4 wheel drive needs servicing, but then again releasing the parking brake solves the issue too. I am hesitant to take it to a dealer even with all of the examples. Good Luck!

I haven't had this problem with my 2006 GMC 1500HD Sierra 4x4 also a 6.0, but I have had it with other vehicles. Have the catalytic converter checked out. This sounds like a typical Cat melt down and the system is clogged. When it cools it allows a little more exhaust through for a little while.

Sarah this truck has 76,000 miles and I have paid for a computer diagnosis, told it was a bad starter, had a new one installed. I am out over $500 so far and my truck still has intermittent no start issues. Chevrolet has not been helpful so I had another auto repair mechanic try and still playing the expensive guessing game. I guess I will have to try to figure out this problem myself so I can get this thing running enough to trade it in on a more reliable brand than Chevrolet.
