    I just bought my 03 silverado yesterday and today I experienced the same problem. When I went to turn I noticed the volt meter took a sudden drop and the engine stalled. The truck started right back up however and I could continue on. I am suppose to take it back to the dealership that I bought it from on monday.

    I have the same problem. It usually happens when I make a u turn. It started happening after i put on my K7N Air Intake. No sure if its related though.

Power steering pump going bad had mine replaced last year and freinds truck year before, sit at idle and slowly turn wheel all the way left and all the way right and see if you can feel it like it is binding

Why does motor shut off when I turn on the heat and air?

Electrical issue. The heat or air draws more current and the electrical system probably drops voltage below the threshold the electronic control module can handle. First check that the Alternator is charging correctly. When running the system should have 13 to14.7 volts measured at the battery. If you turn on the heat/AC and it drops significantly you have a current draw issue (most likely bad fan motor, or short) If the voltage is below 13 volts when the car is running your alternator is likely bad.

clean the IAC it is all you need to do. Battery voltage drops just because when the engine stalls it kills the alternator. Engine stalls beause the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is dirt clogged. Uninstall the IAC valve, and clean it using electronic contact cleaner (3M will do). No need to spend anything else.

Won't restart if I remove the key from ignition

First of all you sure the key is not working properly. Sounds more like you have a fuel pump issue. Dealt with alot of gm trucks and suvs with same symptoms. Might want to consider checking that out.

Stalls at idle no fluxuation in voltage at iac

It is most likely the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.
The valve is supposed to close when the car is idling and open other wise.

Inspect it / Replace it.

Hope this helps!

Could be fuel filter, idle air control valve, or idle control sensor, or a vacuum leak.
