Chevrolet Express 3500 Problems

One or More Rear Lights May Not Work

The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Electrical components under front carpet may be damaged when cleaning van interior
Various electrical components under the front carpet/rubber mat may become damaged if excess water is used to clean the rear cargo area.

Chevrolet Express 3500 Recalls

Vehicle Equipped With Improper Inside And Outside Mirror Combinations

The vehicles were built with an improper mirror combination of no inside rear view mirror and a right hand convex mirror. Vehicles require both side mirrors being flat if no inside mirror is provided. Dealers will install a right hand flat rear view mirror free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Stalls From Electrical Module Short

The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Natural Gas Leak

Certain vehicles equipped to run on compressed natural gas are being recalled because the high pressure natural gas regulator could develop a leak, increasing the risk of a fire or explosion. Dealers will replace the natural gas regulator to correct this concern.

Though I have 2 weird intermittent p...
Very bad problem with paint on this vehicle. Paint starts peeling off the hood and then off the rest of the van. All that is left is the primer. If you watch when you are on the road you will see many of these models with the same problem.
