    I have an 04 GMC Sierra Extended Cab, and every time I wash my truck the carpet on the passenger side in the front is soaked. The carpet is wet under the plastic trim and about 2 inches beyond.

    Did you ever find a fix for this problem...I just purchased a 2004 Crew Cab and have exactly the same problem. It almost acts as though it is coming from the vent along the floorboard but is definately not antifreeze. I would appreciate any help.

    Your drainplug for the a/c evaporator is probably clogged. I'd check that out first.
  • Hi,
    I have 2002 silverado 4x4. I'll be driving and all of a sudden my message center turns red, not charging, then goes to low fuel and the gas gauge drops all the way down, passlock comes on and the abs light turns on. just as quickly it all returns to normal with the passlock light remaining on until I shut the key off.
    I don't believe it is actually not charging as the lights dont dim. The truck will cycle through these changes sometimes more frequently then others. Thanks for the help

    Are all of these "messages" contained in your "cluster"? If so, it appears many are having the same problem as you and having their dealer replace it free of charge.

    WHAT SIZE BULBS ARE IN THE DASH CLUSTER OF A 2002 GMC SIERRA EXT CAB P/U? ARE THEY THE SAME AS THE 70'S TYPE WHERE YOU TURN A KNOB TYPE CASE AND PULL IT OUT AND A WEDGE TYPE BULB PUSHES IN THE PLASTIC CASE LIKE PIECE. DOES IT TAKE 194 BULBS. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED. THANK YOU, CARL LESLIE EMAIL CARLKIM@BELLSOUTH.NET

    '04 silverado: what will cause all the dash lights to slowly dim out and finally turn off and not turn back on?

    when driving, all the dash panel lights started to dim and get dimmer. Finally turned off and no longer have any power. Also, the radio went dead.
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    Easiest to check would be the fuses. Sounds like the BCM may have gone south.
  • jkhmjkhm Posts: 3
    The fuses are all fine. The way that it slowly dimmed out also makes me think it isn't a fuse problem.

    I know nothing about cars. Can you tell me what BCM is?
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    There are several modules within the vehicle that controls different functions sort of like micro computers. The BCM is the body control module which controls things like power windows, keyless remote, lights, power lock, factory alarm, tach, a/c, and instrument cluster.

    You would need to check for codes using an OBDII scanner. Bottom line, you need to take it in to have it checked by a mechanic. Doesn't have to be the Chevy dealer. If you have a mechanic that works on your truck, he/she should be able to trouble shoot and replace the BCM should it prove to be defective.
  • I HAVE A 2002 GMC SIERRA EXT CAB WITH THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. DID YOU EVER FIND OUT WHAT WAS CAUSING THE WATER TO GET INSIDE THE TRUCK? IF SO PLEASE EMAIL ME AT CARLKIM@BELLSOUTH.NET AND I MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU ON SOME OTHER PROBLEMS YOUR HAVING. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THIS TRUCK SINCE I PURCHASED IT IN OCTOBER 2001 EVEN THOUGH IT'S A 2002 YEAR MODEL. THANK YOU, CARL
  • DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO PURCHASE THE INDICATOR BULBS FOR THE INSTRUMENT (GAUGE) CLUSTER? I NEED THE SMALL ONES THAT SHOW THE EMERGENCY BRAKE, CHECK ENGINE, ETC. THERE ARE ONLY TWO SIZES ON THE CLUSTER. I ALSO NEED THE BULB ASSEMBLY FOR THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AND THE OTHER BUTTONS AROUND IT. I KNOW THEY'RE IN DIFFERENT BODIES BUT I CAN'T FIND THEM ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET.THANK YOU, CARL LESLIE EMAIL CARLKIM@BELLSOUTH.NET

    I have a 93 Silverado and the AC has gone out. Has anyone had any experience with this happening to them? I was wondering if it was related to the electronics.
  • I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM OVER AND OVER, THE LOW PRESSURE SWITCH LOCATED IN THE LEFT REAR CORNER (WHEN LOOKING AT THE TRUCK FROM THE FRONT) IT IS DEFECTIVE, TO MY KNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE NOT ISSUED A BULLETIN ON IT BUT THEY HAD TO REPLACE MINE AT LEAST 4 OR 5 TIMES, BEFORE THEY FINALLY FOUND A NEW ONE TO REPLACE IT WITH. GO TO THE DEALER AND ASK IF ANY SERVICE BULLETINS HAVE BEEN ISSUED ON THIS LOW PRESSURE SWITCH. IF IT JUST WENT TO HOT OR WARM, THIS IS PROBABLY THE PROBLEM.WHEN MINE STARTED GOING IN AND OUT, IT DID THAT FOR A WHILE AND THEN IT JUST WENT TO NO AIR CONDITIONER AT ALL, AND ALL THE SWITCHES THEY PUT ON WERE DEFECTIVE ALSO. BUT THEY FINALLY FOUND A NEWER PART THAT FIXED IT AND IT HAS BEEN WORKING FOR OVER 90,000 MILES NOW. YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY MAKING A JUMPER WIRE AND UNPLUGGING THE SWITCH AND USING THE JUMPER AND IF THE COMPRESSOR CLICKS ON, YOU KNOW IT'S THE LOW PRESSURE SWITCH.
  • I FORGOT, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE A/C ON WHEN YOU USE THE JUMPER WIRE......YOU PROBABLY KNEW THAT, BUT JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE. THANKS, CARL

    My gas gauge jumps when I use the turn signals and hazards. The needle movement (bouncing, flicking) is greater when the tank is fuller. It's a 1997 GMC 1500 Savana. Also want to mention that the Volt guage slightly twiches with the signals turned on. The typical volt readout is between 12.5-14 volts. Higher volts show up when it is colder out and drops to the lower range with hotter weather. Does anyone have any ideas of the failure component?

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the dash panel on a 1999 sierra 1500 so I can get at the instrument lights behind the speedo and tacho.
    Thanks
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    Remove the trim that goes around the cluster. You will have to lower the shift knob and steering wheel. Begin by prying the top left corner nearest the door. Once that is removed you will see several screws that hold in the cluster. Remove the screws and unplug the cluster.

    Does anyone know how to replace the panel lights for the A/C buttons? I have an '02 Silverado. The dealer said the whole A/C control panel would have to be replaced.

    I just bought a nice 95 Silverado extended cab pickup and am looking to replace the bucket seats with a bench seat to handle 3 passengers up front. Anyone know of options besides going to the dealer and paying around $1400 ?

    Thanks

    Easiest place to go would be a junk yard. Even if you had to get the seat recovered it would only cost $300 or so. The dealer would be the last place I'd look.
  • Word of caution an erratic fuel gage is a signal of dirty fuel filter/fuel pump drawing too many amps and will soon fail. My fuel did back flips for about a year before the pump failed.

    Towing bill Truck $75
    Towing bill Trailer $40
    Rescue Pickup by Girl Friend $30
    Assistant to drop tank $40
    Fuel sender Module $300
    Fuel Filter $ 9.00

    Time to Drain/Drop tank 3 hrs.

    For sure in the future I will be changing my $9 fuel filter at 50k or less.
  • forgot to add
    4 - 5 gallon gas cans $38.00 apx
  • I need to install an amp to hook up to a Sub. i need to know how to take off the dashboard to get to the back of the radio and to get to the electrical port so i can lead wires from the inside to the battery.
  • I need to take the 6 disc out and get it fixed, is this a hard job and is the disc changer removeable by its self. Thanks
  • We have 2009 Silverado work trucks that we want to have the LT style center console with lid. Has anyone done this and do you have to change the seats?
  • Hello,

    I have a new body style 07 gmc ext cab truck. After a good heavy rain my carpet will be soaked in the drivers and pass floor boards. Water will be pooling up in the rear floor boards. I park my truck front up hill on my driveway. The dealer says they can not find the leak? Anyone else having this issue.
  • I HAVE A 2002 GMC SIERRA EXTENDED CAB SPORTS SIDE P/U. IT HAS THE 5.3 LITER V/8 AND I SPECIAL ORDERED THIS TRUCK AND HAD A SPECIAL UPGRADED SUSPENSION UNDER IT FOR TOWING. I HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE BACK PASSENGERS FLOOR GETTING WET AFTER RAINS. I HAVE BEEN IN THE BACK SEAT AND WENT THROUGH ONE OF THEM TOUCHLESS CAR WASHES AND I CANNOT FIND ANY LEAKS OR SIGNS OF LEAKS, BUT IT DOES LEAK AND GET THE PASSENGER FLOOR CARPET WET WHEN RAINING. THE DEALER SAID THE SAME THING, THEY COULD NOT FIND THE LEAK, AND SAID I MUST HAVE LEFT THE WINDOWS DOWN A LITTLE. I SAID I DON'T LEAVE MY WINDOWS OPEN EVERY TIME IT RAINS. THERE IS SOME KIND OF DEFECT IN THE GMC SIERRA'S FROM 2002 THRU 2007. THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO ADMIT IT DUE TO THE RECALL THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO ON 6 OR 7 YEARS OF TRUCKS. I'M SURE THE SILVERADO'S HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, BECAUSE THEY'RE THE SAME TRUCK WITH DIFFERENT INTERIORS AND SOME COSMETIC DIFFERENCES OUTSIDE, BUT THEY HAVE THE EXACT FRAMES AND BODY'S.
