2001 Sonoma GMC 4 cyl reg.cab

Every now and then the door bell sticks in the on position. I can hear the bell dinging through glass. I disconnected the door bell connection and that didn’t work, the battery was drained by the next day. What can I do to get this fixed the cheapest way?

I had the same problem with my 01. My problem originates in the in the ignition switch. When the truck chimes (& the radio light stays on) after removing the key and opening the door, you know the circuit is still open, and this will drain the battery. I just have to tap the key slot on the column once or twice to close the circuit. My battery has been fine ever since I figured this out.

It sounds like you have a bad relay. If you know where the relay is or how to find it, you could fix/replace/disable the function. OR there could be a short circuit in your wiring because a brief overview of your owners manual, if you are the same as a 2004, indicates there are a few circuits that trigger the chime (i.e. door, lights, turn signal, safety belt). You could test for these with a circuit board safe probe, or a digital multimeter; or you can find the fuses related to each electronic circuit that triggers the chime and start by pulling those fuses to see if ends the chime. If any or all of this seems too crazy, I'm sorry to say but you will need to find someone who is good with troubleshooting electronics to help fix this. I'm not saying the dealer is your only option, but I would rather pay for somone who knows either the vehicle very well or is great with electronics. If you decide to bring this to someone, and you have to pay by the hour, I would pay more for a better technician opposed to paying less for a less qualified technician that will take longer to find/fix the issue. Just my 2 cents. Good Luck.

How do i know if brake booster is gone ? 2001 gmc


Do you by any chance hear a hissing noise from under the dash? If so, yes, you have a bad booster. For it to do what you're saying, it would almost have to have a vacuum leak. However, if there is a problem with something in the ABS system, you should have an ABS warning light on. Also, ABS can make the pedal fade, but I've never heard of it making the pedal hard. Your diagnosis of a brake booster does sound likely, but I'll admit I can't be sure -- this is an odd one.

Oil pan


If your truck is a 4 cyl, then there is no way around pulling the motor to reseal the oil pan. if it is a 6 cyl then the frt diff will have to be removed and then the oil pan will come out of the truck. either way you are in for a full day of work.
