Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

All dash gauge related

Its only happened three times in the last 2 months, but the "emergency brake" light and the light thing on the left light up after I'm already driving down the road. No squealing brakes or anything like that. Also, the gas gauge will sometimes drop like I have nothing in there and the gas light will come on....this happens when I have full tank or anything and has happened several times.

CHECK YOUR BRAKE FLUID LEVEL, IF ITS LOW THE LIGHT CAN GO ON AND OFF OVER BUMPS. YOU MAY ALSO NEED BRAKES. THE FLUID IS IN THE CALIPERS.

THE FUEL GAGE PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY THE FUEL LEVEL SENSOR.

I just had a motor put in and my a t temp light is flashing from the moment gee started the car ...doesnt appear to be shifting and kicks hard in first ...rmp run over 3 all the time ..changed filter and...


First thing I would check is transmission fluid level. The fluid should be checked with engine warm, engine running, in park and good idea to have emergency brake on. You may know this but many people check transmission with engine off and think it is overfilled. I met one a couple months. It happens.

Intermittent Gauge Failure


I doubt it, but anything's possible.
The only thing connecting the two things would be the parking lights and dash lights, not the gauges.
Sounds like a problem with the body controller, or the wiring harness behind the dash. Advance warning - there are miles of wiring in a Jaguar. And the problem will have to be occuring for the garage to find it.
Do you think it only happens on trips, and not just local driving ?
Could be something heating up if you need 50+ miles to make it happen.

My car has 2 problems. I don't know if they are related. First I had "service engine " light on, test said "misfire cylinder 3" all spark plugs were change back on July 2010, 2 weeks...


You need to go to a differant mechanic sounds like he has no idea what he is doing.You should never have to change spark plugs three times in 6 months.But the brake problem is not related to the SEL light and I dont think the installed your brakes properly if the are worn out that fast also.

My dashboard and gauges keep flickering on and off


sound like you have a lose connection it could be the cables on to the dash or the socket it fits to. you would need to remove the dash and clean the connection and re fit it. if you push on the dash does it stop. ? just check this first as some times its just a tiny amount of play in the connections that's the problem .

Same thing happened to me on my 2000 silverado July 3, 2009.
There is a release next to the parking brake pedal. You have to reach way under the dash but it has worked for me for the last month. I have the part to fix it but haven't had the time.
