Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Problem Report

Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Noise and/or Dead Battery Due to failed Alternator

(13 reports)

The alternator may fail causing the battery to go dead, or an abnormal noise may develop. The dash warning light may or may not illuminate. A failed alternator will require replacement.

I had a terrible noise when I first started my truck, then it seemed to fade away. Came back again within a drive or two. Dropped it off for other service and they told me it needed a rebuilt alternator, since the bearings were gone in mine. In my mind, a vehicle of this age is bound to have things like this come up. I feel like I have an excellent service garage taking care of my vehicles now, so, I'm just reporting, not complaining. My battery is fine! Dec 12, 2014 -
