Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Problems

Stalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and possible stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will commonly correct this concern.

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.

Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Reviews

besides my current problem with the 4wh. drive, i absolutely love my avalanche... i will never not have one. it is by far the smoothest ride, the back seats are just as comfy as the front, and it is the best drive in movie vehicle ever... with traveling coolers built in. Love this truck!!
I have a 2006 Avalanche that the doors and tailgate keep freezing. If anyone have suggestions please let me know.
I am a pilot car for the oversize loads and travel all over the country. I currently have 360,000 miles on my Avalanche and it is still in great shape. I have had trouble with the instrument cluster (speedometer not working). Have also had trouble with the heating/cooling functions. Other than that, it has held up well.
