2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problems
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 CD player may fail due to an internal fault with the radio. Our technicians tell us that in most cases, the radio unit will need to be sent to a specialty repair shop to correct this issue.
The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.
2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Questions
I tried turn on AC but looks like it won't turn on. Light on switch keeps flashing
Ticking coming from the engine. Only at idle does it tick. Have heard the oil pump has a problem with it. Not the lifters, valves or cam. If anyone has had this problem fixed I would like to know
2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Recalls
The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.
