Chevrolet 2500 Pickup ProblemsInstrument Panel Lights Flickering and Exterior Lights Intermittent
The headlight switch used on the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.
- Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
- Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
- Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
- Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
- Parking light malfunctions
This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues.
Chevrolet 2500 Pickup QuestionsWhat will be the problem if the truck won't start and the starter is good? (1 answer)
My friend has a 4/4. He walked in to the gas station and he shut it off. Before that it was running fine. He started right up. It sounded like the starter went. We took it in to get it checked out and it works fine. There is gas in the tank.
It's not the distributor, I changed that out. Not coil or emission control module.
I just changed the distributor in my 1999 k2500 and now fuel pump and gauges will not work I also bought a new battery and fuel and ignition relay if I turn the key sometimes it will engage and sometimes it won't you think it can be distributor related?
