1997 chevy 1500 5.7 vortec
With you. Looks like you have changed everything. Driving a '95 Odyssey - Love it. Has a Real transmission, and all the goodies I grew up with. Parts that make sense. So - what does Autozone say? About it's computers? Mine has only one, and it is ...lame. Is it throwing any 'codes'? Hubby is the expert. Hope to send this to him. JW

1999 chevy silverado 5.3 starts then dies out
check to see if you can hear a loud sucking sound (air) going into the throttle body when the engine starts then dies. if you hear alot of air being sucked into the throttle body, replace the Coolant Temperature sensor located close to the thermostat housing on top of the intake manifold. If this $12.00 part goes bad, it will cause the same symptom you have described. You can check the sensor for correct reading by using a scan-tool.

SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) Lamp
The SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) lamp is an integral part of the cluster and cannot be serviced separately. This lamp is used to inform the driver of the vehicle of malfunctions within the automatic transfer case (ATC) system. The SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) lamp is controlled by the transfer case shift control module via CKT 1567.
Transfer Case Shift Control Module
The transfer case shift control module uses the VIN information for calculations that are required for the different calibrations used based on axle ratio, transmission, tire size, and engine. The system does not know which calibration to use without this information.
The direct battery supply line (CKT 1640) provides the power to the module and motor circuitry.
Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor consists of a permanent magnet (PM) DC motor and gear reduction assembly. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case (clockwise or counter clockwise) to shift the transfer case. The encoder motor is controlled with a pulse width modulated (PWM) circuit within the transfer case shift control module. This circuit consists of a driver on both the Motor A and Motor B circuits. The encoder motor is bi-directional to allow the motor to shift the transfer case from 2HI or 4HI to NEUTRAL and 4LO positions.

Weres the silenode on a 99 chevy silverado z71 located ours wont shift right and we lost reverse and someone said try the silenode first
Finding a wiring diagram for the shift solenoid in question and testing for control (turn on signal ) from the PCM And checking to see if the solenoid is open is the proper way to find the problem . Not guessing and just replacing parts ! Check engine light on ? The PCM would set a code an turn on the Check engine light if a solenoid was open or if the circuit was open , shorted etc..... How many miles on the trans ? More then likely the reverse clutch has a problem .Before you start replacing parts you don't need take to a qualified repair shop and have it diagnosed . Hooking up a scan tool to check for codes an view data or inputs from the trans range sensor switch and outputs from the computer to shift solenoids . This would save you time and money
