2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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 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.

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.

My 2009 Silverado 1500 is only blowing Out of the defrost vents, no matter what the dial is selected at. I was told it was the actuator, but which one and where is it located?

I can walk away for awhile 2hrs or so and it comes right on.

Start truck,information panel reads service stabilitrack, service traction control, stabilitrack off,traction control off.
Abs light,traction control light on lights stay on all the time,nothing else is wrong,truck runs fine.checked all wheel sensors,ok.
