SOURCE: 1998 GMC Sierra radio and display stays on all the time

First of all...does your truck have the retained accessory power (RAP)? If it does, the radio would always stay on with the key off until you open the drivers door. If it does have RAP and the door pin on the drivers door has went bad, then the truck doesn't know that you opened the door and continues to allow accessory power (although it would still cut off after about 20 minutes). If the interior lights come on when you open the door, then the pin is ok. If the lights come on, it could be the RAP relay. If it has gone bad, it is possible it is stuck supplying power and needs replacing. The relay should be labeled in the fuse panel, and there should be other relays in the panel with the same part number. You can swap a relay for the RAP relay and see if it fixes the problem...if it does fix it swap the relays back and replace the RAP relay. If the truck doesn't have RAP then it is possible the problem is in the radio..if you have a friend with a GM car or truck close to the same year you could swap radios and see if that fixes your problem...should be pretty simple. pull the cover off the dash, it just clips on, take out a couple screws that hold in the radio, unplug it and plug in the other radio. sorry so long winded...hope this helps you somewhat.

SOURCE: 2000 GMC Sierra left rear door

Hello,

You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.

Options:
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.

Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.

Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.

One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!

Open the hood, and in the top right and left corners of the primary headlamps you'll see two pins (L shaped) swing them out (towards the front of the truck) and lift out. This allows you to remove the upper headlamp assembly. You can then remove the lower assembly by pushing outwards on the plastic clip that is hooked into a metal clip. Once it's out you just turn the bulb to remove it.

It's much easier if you unhook the leads to the upper assembly's bulbes so you can set the whole thing aside.

SOURCE: 2005 gmc yukon back passenger doors will not

My wife's 2003 Yukon wouldn't lock the rear doors or hatch, but it would unlock. My problem was the lock relay was bad. There are two relays, one for lock and one for unlock. They are located in the fuse panel on the left side of the console. Open the drivers door and you will see a cover that pops off. Behind this are several fuses and relays. Consult your manual to see which is the lock and unlock relays. They are side by side on a 2003. They pull straight out. I replaced both and they were around $10 apiece at any auto store.

SOURCE: 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 tailgate will not lock shut.

Check to see if the mechanizm is siezed behind the handle that lifts up. this is quite common , also check the latches at the ends of the tailgate to see if they are not stuck in the unlatched position ,If they are retracted and won't come back out this confirms a sticky or siezed Mechanism.. WD 40 or someting simular to free up everything works well. good luck

My radio will not turn off when the door is opened like it is suppose to?


It's part of the RAP (Retained Accessory Power) circuit. Yours may be actuated by a pin switch on the hinge side of the door jamb or inside the door as actuated by the door handle linkage.

Bleed fuel system


There is often a bolt on top of the diesel pump which you open up in order to bleed. You open the bolt up a few turns until it's loose then crank the engine until fuel comes out around the loose bolt. The engine should start up at the same time.
It doesn't matter if you open up a bolt that's not the bleed bolt, just tighten it up and try another bolt until you find the bleed bolt.

I need to disconnect my battery in my 2005 GMC SIerra.....I do not have the code for my radio and I don't want to the radio when I am done working on my truck any ideas.


I'm not sure why you need to disconnect the battery but if it's to replace it you can connect another 12 volt battery to your truck with jumper cables or jumper wires. Connect the negative post to an engine ground and the positive to the positive jumper post. It's under a red plastic cover near the driver's side front of the engine. Just be aware that the positive battery cable is live and you'll have to be careful that it doesn't come into contact with a ground. That radio should have no code in it unless it's programmed by the owner. The default code is 4 zeros. If you bought the truck new and you didn't program a code into it you should be OK. Check the owner's manual. If you didn't buy the truck new and the previous owner programed a code into it your only chance is to get it from that owner.

The dome light on my 2005 GMC Truck will not come on when you open left or right doors. All fuses are good. The radio does repond with the door opening.


Hello there:
If you look in your owners manual you will find out that there is settings that are set by the steering wheel to turn on and off these features ok?

2000 GMC Sierra, how do I wire my CB radio?


Most parts stores carry a "piggyback" terminal that can be used with a fuse that will provide a male spade lug that can be used for such installations. I suggest you use the "AUX" fuse as it will be a heavy enough circuit.
