2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The steering may develop a clunk type noise from the upper intermediate steering shaft.  Our technicians tell us that you should check with you local GM dealer to find out what the latest repair is for this condition.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The daytime running lights are prone to burning out. Our technicians tell us that the light sockets may show signs of heat damage but usually are OK. Always be sure to use the correct replacement bulb for the best life expectancy. The new bulb recommendation for 2002-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Engine -- Verified

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and possible stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will commonly correct this concern.

Brakes -- Verified

A poor electrical ground under the battery tray may cause the ABS warning light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that cleaning and properly securing this ground and also the main ABS ground on the frame rail below the drivers door may be necessary.

2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Reviews

I have a 2006 Avalanche that the doors and tailgate keep freezing. If anyone have suggestions please let me know.

Use Mobile 1 synthetic oil, at 119,000 miles low oil pressure sensor light came on, had checked at Auto Zone, said oil clean and levels correct. Recommended purchasing new sensor. Started home and within two miles truck locked up. I had someone's driveway blocked and had to restart engine to move the vehicle. Engine locked up due to oil pump failure and had to be replaced. Now I only get 10 to 12 mpg on new engine. I thought the sensor was supposed to shut your vehicle down to prevent the engine from locking up.
