Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
I do not know if this after market.I have looks like a light or a heating element in the housing for the turn signal it curls like a pigs tail. I have not been able to get it to come on.I have asked a couple of mechanics they have no idea what it is, does anybody have any ideas what it might be
Sound like a hide-a-way strobe tube...used as a warning light. Here is a link to a similar item: http://www.swps.com/whelen-hide-a-way-strobe-kit.html. They are used for a wide variety of applications where warning lights are needed, but a roof top light may not be the owners first choice. A lot of people will leave the bulbs in if they get rid of a vehicle because they require a 1 inch hold to be drilled into the light housing. If you remove the bulb,there is a chance that dirt and water will enter the housing. I have them on my vehicles. Hope this helps.

First of all, is your truck a diesel? If so, depending on the location of the pigs tail you described, it may be the glow plug heater light. When you first turn the ignition to the "on" position, in the upper left hand side of the instrument cluster, the light for the glow plug heater which looks like a sort of coil, will come on for about 3-5 seconds then go out. After the light goes out, the glow plugs are hot enough to start the combustion process, and you can start the truck. I hope this helps you!
