2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problems

Intermittant Failure to Start

Will turn key and it is like no power from battery to starter, but have lights, radio, etc. Turn key again or sometimes multiple times, to no avail. Then, turn it one more time and it starts. Then the next 15 starts, no problem. Sometimes hot engine, sometimes cold.

UPDATE: 2-6-14; I sold the truck to my father. He changed the starter. No problems since March 2013.

Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically

The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Heating and AC Temperature and Air Delivery Mode Door Actuators May Fail

One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
