Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Truck worked great until battery died of old age, replaced battery now truck won't start is there a way reset computer to accept new battery?
I have seen stranger things happen, but to my knowledge there is no reset when you replace the battery. GM does put a lot of connections at the terminals and you need to ensure all the wires went back on. Also check the fuse/relay box under the hood to make sure a relay or fuse did not blow. Hope this helps.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
