Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD

1 Answer

Something weird on a 2005 chevy Silverado

I just bought a Chevy Silverado 2005, and every now and then, the engine and ABS light will go on when I start the vehicle and then the wipers will not work...I will stop the engine and restart, if lucky the problem is solved, and some other time, I will start the truck, and everything will run smooth, and no engine light or ABS will show...

I believe it would be electrical, but not sure, I checked the fuses, and they all work.

What would that be??

Thanks for any info...

    Fine for the lights in the dashboard, but if that is the problem, is going to fix the wipers which don't work when the light comes on???

The next time it acts up try turning the key back just a little and see if everything comes online if it does you will need to replace the igniton switch not the key lock the electric switch that will be located in or on the sterring colum.

    Possibly because if your switch is not returning to the run position you may not getting power to that system.

I would probably have the computer scanned for ABS trouble codes.
It could be a switch or something else such as an actual problem with the abs system.

Try checking the abs madule, that could be causing all the problems, such as the trans code and engine code. Also check the grounds cable maybe rusty or lose. I had a Chevy Tahoe and it was almost the same problems and it turn out to be the abs madule. Hope this helps good luck.

Hi...your problem might be coming from your front wheel bearing hubs. They are know to cause this problem as they wear out and eventually have to be replaced.

Check the fuses.I know that there was a recall for the ABS senser,but not sure what years are covered.Check with the dealer service Dept.The just clean the sensor and there is no charge.Not sure if this could cause your issue.I had this done on a 02 and a 04.They also replaced the tail gate cables for free.
