Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ProblemsReplace Fuel Filter Every 30,000 to Prevent Fuel Pump Failure
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.
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 Silverado 1500 RecallsFront Suspension Control Arm Welds Fail
The front suspension upper control arms may have welds that are not sufficient, resulting in separation of the arm from the bushing. Dealers will replace both the left and right upper control arms and realign the vehicle suspension free of charge to resolve the concern.
The tensioner cable for the driver's seat belt may be positioned such that the driver slides over it, resulting in fatigue of this cable. This could cause it to separate from the seat belt. The driver may not be properly protected in a crash if this happens. Dealers will modify vehicles to prevent the tensioner from being damaged, and will repair any tensioner that has already been damaged free of charge to resolve the concern.
The audio warning that sounds to alert the driver that the safety belt is not fastened or the door is open with the key still in the ignition may not operate. Dealers will update the radio software free of charge to resolve the concern.
