Question about Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

When headlights are turned on the dash lights go off, gauges bounce, and lights mess up (all on or only one side, ect.), air compressor kicks on, and lighter socket doesn't have juice. Turn left turn signal on and hear noise under dash. Right turn signal works. Truck tries to die after letting it run for a while. Replaced battery and problem started. Please help! Thanks

When you replaced the battery there is every chance that you have corrupted the CPU program. Use a code reader to reset the CPU and see if that fixes the problem

SOURCE: Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

My AC wasn't working so I thought I needed more freon but when I tried to fill it the gage was in the red. What's wrong with it?


On your gauge,is "red" high pressure or low pressure?
If you are seeing a high pressure on your low side connected gauge and the compressor is not running,that is a "full charge" or better stabilized in the system.If your compressor is not "kicking in" you may have a defective electrical component in the A/C system.With the engine running,you can jump 12v power the the compressor clutch momentarily just to see if it is working.Don't leave it jumped to long as the system is designed to cycle with pressure from the low side pressure switch which is the next place to check and the compressor can also be jumped at the low side switch.
If your "red" is low or no pressure,then you have a leak and repairs to the system to stop the leak will have to be made.You can add 134a at this time with the engine running and A/C requested,and as pressure rises in the A/C system,the compressor should "kick in" and cold air should start flowing in your dash vents.45 degrees at the dash vent airflow temp usually equals a full charge.
DO NOT add any aftermarket "134a" that shows an EXPLOSIVE label on it.These are not 134a and are usually butane and/or propane mixes that you MAY NOT want spraying on you in a collision/any situation where the A/C system has become ruptured/compromised.

Turn on headlights and dash lights go off, gauges bounce, lights all come on or one side, air compressor turns on, turn headlights off and radio comes on. Turn left turn signal and hear noise under dash....


Take off the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. While waiting for that make sure you have all the ground straps connected that go to the battery cable end and to the engine.

2000 acura tl coolant fan after fluid change


New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.

Answer:

ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?

leaks?

does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

Air conditioning does not blow cold air in my 2004 nissan x terra


If your a/c compressor kicks on and your manifold gauges show proper hi/lo readings then I would inspect the blend door. The blend door is a motor that moves back and forth when u set the temp for hot or cold . In your case, it may be stuck in the same position. The blend door is located in the dash, usually behind the glove box or in that general area. I hope you are able to fix your problem. Scott

1999 silverado gauge lights do not work


You probably already checked this but the simplest solution is the control used to turn on the interior lights and to dim your dash lights. It is a dimmer switch to the right of your headlight switch. If it is turned all the way down then you would have no dash lights and no headlight chime. Turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights. If this isn't your issue and if no fuses are blown then try to turn the dimmer switch all the way up with your headlights on. If the dash lights come on with the interior lights then your switch is fried and you may have a short in the interior light circuit.

All dash lights in 2007 civic are on


you will need to inspect all of the fuses and some times the fuse boxes are in different locations around the car such as engine compartment under the dashboard behind the kick plates drivers side and passengers side and when you locate the fuse boxes the should be clearly marked what each fuse is for (you can usually find this on the under side of the fuse cover or it can be printed on the out side as well)and some fuses will be used for a number of components eg lighter and radio and overhead lights,or horn and hazard lights, blinkers and tail lights, these are just examples and most cars will have there own system in which they hook up components to use the fuses . The hand book will point out the location of any fuse boxes installed in the car but if you dont have it then you will have to go looking for them .
