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.

Recently indicator panel read battery nt charging, mechanic put diagnostics on said oh its not your alternator its your battery, they couldnt keep truck running put diagnostics on again and said oh now its your alternator, leaving the second shop $1000 latter truck is running choppy, one mechanic say oh its your fuel pump min $800 to start the job maybe more, today another mechanic says he thinks it could be a blockage in the cadialliac converter, omg don't know what to do about it can someone give me an answer Thank-you I live in Fort Mcmurray labour rates 170 /hr - $200 /hr plus parts

Any ideas on prices?
