2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problems
The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.
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.
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.

My gear selector light on my instrument panel will shut off or dim really bad faint when the brake pedal is applied. After releasing the peddle it will either stay dim or stay off or come right back on bright as it should be.
I have replaced bulbs and the headlight swith in the dash. I hear this is a fairly common problem most often attributed to the switch, but that didn't solve the problems. Does anyone have a suggestion?
