2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Q&A

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Question: Steering Column

Why is there a crackling noise coming from what seems like the steering column? This may also be the cause to why the lights on the steering wheel controls are burned out. -
Answer 1
If the other elsectical functions releated to the steering wheel are ok - the horn and the air bag - then I would think that the cracking noise is not releated to the lights being out. You may have a proplem with the steering upper intermidiate shaft - they tend to make what is normaly refered to as a "popping" noise. -
