Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
When I try and crank my truck it make all the sounds of the systems making its normal checks. Sometimes it will crank and sometimes it wont. When it cranks everything works fine. When it don't crank everything works fine but the fuel and oil pressure stay at 0 and the battery volts goto about 12. Is there any recommendations on where to start looking for a problem. I have seen a lot of stuff on the internet about wont start the first time but will the second. Mine is not like that either it starts or it wont. I have fixed a few cars in the past but I have never had a problem like this and I cant find anything that is like this on the internet. I have found a few things close but nothing like my problems.
Happened today, truck is parked luckily in secure place, but not able to be towed at current location.
It happens all the time I cannot drive it except to move it , I used a cen-tec canobdll but no codes came on this cheapo diagnostic
Started having problems with the gear indicator when shifting from D to reverse, or even park. When changing gears from D to R instead of R being highlighted it would be 3. Even when putting into park (P) 3 would be highlighted or sometimes nothing at all, and the auto door locks will stay locked. The truck shifts gears fine with no problems. Was told it was the neutral safety switch. Had it replaced, but problem still the same.
it loses about 2 quarts every 1500 to 2000 miles I change oil ever 3000 miles it started about 3 years ago with about 1 quart every 3000 miles. It has never smoke out the pips I cant get a good annser
Check engine light on, i'm told its almost always gas cap, by friends and by guy who hooked it to computer. Have replaced gas cap twice, light still on. Some tell me the light HAS to be reset manually. Some tell me you are not supposed reset manually, can even be fined for that. Would like definitive answer about light before I go any further with expensive, possibly unnecessary repairs under the hood. Code was P0455. THX
this all came about when i was trying to get my boat off trailer.kept hitting the brakes hard in reverse to get boat off trailer
have also cleaned all the grounds i could find if that makes a difference.
when i have taken out the cluster there is a burn mark on the part that houses the prndl.
I was in traffic yesterday with a 20 foot camper attached and truck was running odd. Engine light on. Started smoking under hood then wouldn't go into reverse. I opened coolant fluid slow and it exploded. Added coolant and oil. Drove for a mile ok. Tried to start again, drove for a mile and wouldn't any more. Put new battery in today still won't go into gear unless I let it cool down then let's me drive for a mile or two if I can glide and not stop. Replaced transmission to brand new one 2 years ago.
2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500. The part was 132 and the shop charged 100. Was I overcharged ?
I can make the compressor turn on by jumping the wires by the condenser. But, it won't work automatically. Also, I added some freon thinking it might be low.
list of parts changed throttle control accuater, battery, tps, fuses, i also pinged all wireing harness going from each sensor and all checked out, parts that i have not replaced are the gas pedal sensor and the actuall throttle body its self but that also checked out fine, i also have instrument pannel issuse and a driver door that just quit working all together so i dont know if i have a major ground issuse (put all new grounds in so i dont believe it is that) or what it could be the code reads LOST COMM WITH THROTTLE MODULE not sure what this is not alot of information out about wiring on these trucks so if anyone has any idea what my next step would be please advise thank you
No prior problems. Only had 150k miles
I have changed the resistor twice in a month. the blower & motor is new and still works. What could be causing this to happen & how can I fix it.
previous owner changed ignition, security light is always flashing when running and when off. no starting issues but cluster will occasionally turn off and now transmission wont shift. Others have had the same shifting problem when aftermarket items i.e. lights, stereos were added and when removed the problem went away. not sure if they are related problems but fix for any would be appreciated.
I have reverse, first and second in my 02 chevy avalanche 5.3 2wd automatic but that's it when it go to shift into third It acts like neutral. Could it be a speed sensor?
Check engine light is off now
at the end of April my radio stopped working then on May 1 the truck would not start. We replaced the battery and everything started working again. Well this morning, June 2, the truck wouldn't start again.
The security system is mounted under the steering wheel and looks like a small padlock when removed all light and everything works but no juice to ignition switch the other day its went up in smoke and now when in place it still won't turn over can I remove the system?
I was going reverse then I put it on drive and it made a noice after that the truck wouldn't move on regular 2 well drive but when I push the gas the peedometor look did work ..I parked it then I tried the 4 well drive an it does run..
My a/c system switches to full heat while driving. It occurs on the drivers side only. Shutting of the engine and restarting will temporarily correct it. System is dual control. It happens frequently and without changing the temp settings.
