Chevrolet 1500 Pickup ProblemsWindshield Wipers May Fail Due to Faulty Wiper Motor Control Board
The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.
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.
Chevrolet 1500 Pickup QuestionsI have a 1996 chevy siverdao. Ive changed the wires,plugs,rotor, cap and it. (2 answers)
what do I do
I'm on at least the 4th fuel pump since the truck was new, the last 3 according to the mechanic and my testing had a leaking check valve. I've found inline valves for around $10 which sure beats $150-$300 for a new pump not counting the work involved but need to know the size. THANKS
Would like to replace my engine with a 4.7 L. 96 Chevy Silverado with manual transmission. Please ignore last email from me.
Chevrolet 1500 Pickup RecallsSeat Belts Not Proper For Vehicle
The seat belts installed on the vehicle may not meet proper federal requirements. Dealers will replace both front seat belts free of charge to resolve the concern.
The bolts that secure the seat recliner to the seat frame may loosen, fatigue and fracture, causing the seat back to recline suddenly. Dealers will remove all foam and fabric sandwiched between the recliner and frame, install washers between them, and install new bolts, tightening them to a higher torque specification free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel tank may rub on the body at the front inner corner, causing a noise and possible fuel tank damage resulting in leakage of fuel. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank for wear and install a spacer between the fuel tank and body, as well as replace leaking tanks free of charge to resolve the concern.
