Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Problems

Instrument 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. 

The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

ABS Warning Light On and/or Erratic ABS Operation

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Questions

What 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.

truck starts, runs rough then stalls out. (1 answer)

It's not the distributor, I changed that out. Not coil or emission control module.

Distributor (1 answer)

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?

Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Recalls

Seat Belts Not Proper For Vehicle

The seat belts installed on the vehicle may not meet proper federal requirements. Dealers will replace both front seat belts free of charge to resolve the concern.

Seat Bolts Loosen And Fracture

The bolts that secure the seat recliner to the seat frame may loosen, fatigue and fracture, causing the seat back to recline suddenly. Dealers will remove all foam and fabric sandwiched between the recliner and frame, install washers between them, and install new bolts, tightening them to a higher torque specification free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Seat Mounting Bolts Missing

Some front seat mounting bolts may not have been installed during vehicle manufacturing. Dealers will inspect for missing bolts and add them where necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
