Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Interior and Dashboard

  • I have a 08 GMC Sierra The fuel gauge does not read correctly Took it to the dealer and said that it was a problem on quite a few of these trucks They replaced the sending unit and after about a week it is doing the same thing. I was wondering if anybody else is having this problem. I filled the tank and parked the truck and the next time I took it for a ride it showed 1/2 tank
  • I have a 2002 Silverado HD doing the same thing. Did you find the problem?????
    I am thinking it is probably the BCM or a defective ground somewhere.
  • I have a vintage 1993 Chevy Blazer K1500 that still runs like a sewing machine after 235K miles. But today, the temp gage failed high. That is, it reads off the high side of the gage even with the engine is stone cold, ignition switch on or off. The computer has stored a code "15". I followed the Haynes manual recommendation to remove the glovebox and wiggle the connectors to the computer, no change. I unplugged the engine coolant sensor connector, no change. Do I have an open or a short? I hate electrical issues. I was planning on replacing the coolant sensor, which may happen tomorrow, but I fear the problem resides somewhere behind the instrument cluster. has anyone in this forum encountered a bad gage problem like this one
  • I purchased a temp sensor, but the connector had a different pin arrangement. I took it back to the auto parts store who showed me that the 350 TBI has two coolant temp sensors, one for the computer, and one for the gages. The one close to the thermastat is for the computer, while the one tucked back near the firewall is reserved for the gages. I'm going to replace that one tonight.
  • I have a 2000 Chevrolet 4x4 Z71. 2 weeks ago it started acting up when I had it in 4 wheel drive because of the ice storm we had, every light in the dash would flash on and off and the gauges would jump back an forth or spin completely around. We changed the whole cluster and it done the same thing, and now it has quit completely. what is causing this?
  • Hi, I also have a 99 gmc sierra slt with the same problem, passenger seat moves about 1/4 to 1/2 inch every time I brake or accelrate. Have you been able to fix it and if so, how did you fix it? Does any body have a solution to this problem?
    Thanks

    Hello,
    I have just bought a 2007 Sierra crew cab and found after a heavy rain the front passenger floor completely soaked after it rained. Has anyone found a solution to this problem. I have 38,000 miles on the vehicle. Would this still be covered by GM as it appears to be a design/quality issue
    Please advise
    Thanks
  • I bought an '03 Sierra knowing the air bag light was on. I found out it's the air bag clock spring. There was front end work done and the rack and pinion was replaced. The book said you can't turn the wheel unhooked. I believe that this is what happened. I took the back off the clock spring and the connections had been broken off. Is this repairable by soldering or does it have to be replaced. The dealer wants a mint. Any suggestions, also for a cheaper one if I have to replace it?

    Did you ever find out the problem? I have the same exact problem with my silverado and the dealer cannot figure out what it is..

    Thanks!

    We just acquired a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado that didn't come with the power windows or door locks. Has anyone here had experience adding these with one of the kits from Ebay or buying parts from a salvage truck and retrofitting them? Do the models without the pw and pdl still have the wiring harness and plug in the door interior? I know that would almost be too much to hope for, but often, GM had wiring for options that weren't used and they were there, often tucked up into the dash, etc. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I replaced one on my Dad's truck. It was uber easy. Got the part from a GM place online very inexpensively ,takes maybe five minutes to replace, just pry it out, unlplug the wiring harnesses and replace the process, popping the mirror back posts into the holes in the mirror interior. Really simple. My mechanic, who is really usually very inexpensive, wanted, I think $60.00 dollars to do the job. Seriously, less than five minutes and if you have ever done it before, probably four minutes :-0 Good luck.
  • You're talking about the side view mirror on the right? And not the rear view mirror on the windshield? It's that easy? :surprise:

    Yes it's that easy. One small triangular panel to pop off. One wire harness to swap. and one nut to remove and replace.

    I have a 2000 Chev Silv 1500 x-cab with the 5.3L vortek engine. Recently and only on occasion while driving, with or without the cruise on, battery light flashes on dash in message center, speedometer jumps around, airbag light flashes and abs light flashes. This only lasts for about 1 to 3 seconds. Truck doesn't run bad or differently while this is happening. Any ideas what's going on? I've seen other posts about gauges, but not this particular issue.

    Radio button lights started going out, now speedo and dash lights are gone too. Shift display is still lit and turn signals work but no others. Just happened out of the blue. Battery is good, fuses are good - any ideas?

    There is a recall on this which is mileage dependent. It is a common occurrence among GM trucks

    I have a 2000 Silverado. When the headlights are turned on, there are no dash lights but the flasher indicators illuminate steady on (but tail lights luckily don't flash). When the headlights are turned off, at least the flasher indicator lights go off. The dimmer still dims the radio and shifter lights. I replaced the headlight/dimmer switch, problem remained. I have disconnected the radio and checked all the fuses and still no change. Any ideas where/what else to check?
  • Iv seen this problem alot its 99% of the time the third brake light, iv replaced plenty on the new body style. for some reason the seals on them fail, and iv see some that have had bubbles in the glue they use to put the back glass in, but yours sounds like its the third brake light.
  • Its your third brake light
  • my lights are burning out on dash and radio.can they be changed and how?
  • THIS IS THE BEST SITE, THEY REPLACE THE COMPLETE BOARD AND ALL LIGHTS
    WITH BRAND NEW BULBS. MINE WORKS GREAT, AND IT'S CHEAP AND FAST TOO.

  • Try LMC Truck.com. if they do not have the right color for the compartment door they will have interior paint to match.
  • Hello! I have a 2000 Chevy 1500. Recently the dash lights have started going out when the headlights come on. Everything goes black except the shift selector. If I turn the dome light on they come on. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

  • THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME, AND I HAD TO REPLACE THE HEADLIGHT/DIMMER SWITCH UNIT AND IT CORRECTED THE PROBLEM.
    IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I REPLACED IT, SO I CAN'T REMEMBER
    IF I PURCHASED IT FROM FROM THE DEALERSHIP OR ON EBAY,BUT IT WAS BRAND NEW
    BUT IT WASN'T THAT MUCH AND IS EASY TO REPLACE.THANKS,CARL
  • Thanks for your reply Carl......just to be clear, you're talking about the headlight dimmer....the turn signal arm itself....and not the dash light dimmer that is on the dash?

    My windshield washer motor/pump is not working either. That makes me wonder....since it is on the turn signal arm also. But, I haven't had time to troubleshoot that problem yet so it may just be the pump.

    Thanks for the help.
