Question Asked: HELP ! DIC Problem, display freezes when I start the engine.
May 20, 2014, 09:25 AM
The Driver information center on my 2008 Chevy Uplander is causing me troubles. If I have leave a door open, whether it is front or rear, and start the engine, then close the door, the DIC continues to display "**** Door AJAR". There is no chiming, the lights turn off as normal but the DIC display seems to be frozen. I am unable to change screens or navigate the DIC until restart the vehicle (as long as all doors are closed). This leads me to believe that there is no issue with the door sensors or harness but the problem is confined to the DIC Module as it is the only thing that seems to think the doors are open. Thank you for any info you can give me.
Question Asked: Help! Steering Column Electrical Harness maybe shorted due to tilt.

I have a 2004 Chevy Malibu 3.5L V6. If the steering wheel is not tilted in the correct position all the idiot lights will flash, the spedo and all gauges will become eratic, if I have the cruise on it will turn off. If I move it to just the right position the gauges will return to normal, but the theft detection light and airbag light will remain, and sometimes the check engine light as well, but my cruise control will remain non functional until I restart the car. Sometimes when it happens going down the highway I will shift into neutral, and restart the car, shift into drive and for the most part things will return to normal as long as the steering wheel is at the correct tilt but the above idiot lights will remain lit and the cruise will no longer function. I am thinking I will end up tearing into the steering column and find a pinched wire in the harness. Just looking for some info before I get in too deep.
