Question about Cars & Trucks

Bizarre electrical - 2011 Chevy Silverado

The dash randomly goes haywire while driving. The spedometer jumps around, the malfunction indicator goes on and off and bells ding like you are just starting the truck. The computer doesn't throw codes.

Typically this is a dash module issue (replacement of dash or send out for rebuild) or wire pinching of dash harness behind the dash display.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy silverado 1500 v8 battery drain after sits for 1or2day

, do a simple test on the charging system...check battery voltage. should be 12v or better. start engine & check volts at idle, no accessories on. volts should read 13.5 -14v. Turn on all accessories(including headlamps on high) volts should drop slightly but should not creep down. Definitely not below 12.5. If voltage drops lower than 12.5, the regulator (in the alternator) is not working. either change regulator or change entire alternator. Alternator drive belt should have sufficient tension so that alternator cannot be turned easily by hand. If it can, check belt tensioner.

SOURCE: 99 chevy silverado fuel gage malfunctions

A bad electric connector is possible. A bad tank sending unit can cause the same symptom. Usually the sending unit is a reostat mounted inside the tank.. it changes resistance depending on the float position, the resistance change causes a different voltage to the gauge or signal processor. The reostat may be a resistive plastic strip, as the float moves a contact pointer wipes the length of strip thus the change in resistance and voltage. Clear as mud?

SOURCE: 2007 Chevy Silverado oil pressure

If you are lucky , replacing the oil pressure sender unit will solve the problem. Your truck might have perfectly good oil pressure , but a bad sensor. OR you might actually have low oil pressure , which is not good , and will be expensive to fix. Good luck.

I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500..the truck was running fine then we turned it off and when we turned it back on again the gauges all went haywire and the vehicle would not start again we jump started it...


Bad battery or alternator. Jump it again and with it running, pull off the positive battery cable. If it dies, its a bad alternator. If it stays running, its a bad battery.

Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned.

The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

2000 chevy pickup. randomly the blinkers sound like they are on. The outside blinker lights do not flash but the clicking sound around the dash comes on. may last only a few blinks, may last while driving...


Wear and Tear on the turn signal switch.Brass contact particals wear off the internals of the switch and mix with the di-electric grease that is used as a lubricant inside the switch. This mixture of grease and brass once it gets bad enough can create enough continuity within the switch to fire the relay but not effect anything else. Cheapest way to check is remove and clean the existing one. Once confirmed you can purchase a new one if need be.
