Question about 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 2011 silverado 1500. I left my house today and noticed I had exactly 93000 miles. I drove 82 miles away and returned home from the same place. My odometer read 93426. Has this happened to anyone else? What do I need to repair?

You will have to have the ECM read for mileage to determine what is bad. The ECM also records the miles. If the ECM and cluster match, you would have had to put some really small tires on the truck. Different gear ratios could cause this, but should have pop a code. My guess would be the cluster isn't working right. Have it scanned...

SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.

You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.

SOURCE: speedometer and odometer not working 92 audi 100

I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael

SOURCE: Service Airbag warning on cluster in 04 Silverado 1500

the most common cause of this light is an open circuit in the coiled ribbon contact to the steering wheel airbag, it is under the steering wheel, it looks like a clock-spring and it always the steering wheel to move while maintaining a physical electrical connection to the airbag module on the steering wheel, after thousands of times of coiling and un-coiling it breaks and then the airbag diagnostic monitor senses the open electrical circuit and turns the light on. U must disarm the airbag to remove the steering wheel to replace this contact, if this is not done the airbag can fire and cause serious injury.

SOURCE: Sudden oil leak and engine noise

It looks like you drove your car with no oil in your engine, unfortunately you should have stopped the moment you started to hear the "rapping noise" since you could have severely damaged your engine. If the noise continues even if you have a normal oil reading you most likely would have to overhaul your engine since by driving it oil dry several parts may have resulted damaged.

Replace the intermediate shaft. See TSB (KT2008101402). It connects the steering to the rack and the u-joint binds.

-I test drove a 2000 Silverado 4x4 which had 149,000 miles on it today and I am concerned with the noise I heard coming from the rear end of the truck. How does the rear ends hold up in these trucks? Are...

If it's a "whining" , "grinding" or "roaring" noise - stay away from it ! 149,000 is a lot of miles for any vehicle, especially a 4x4 that could've been off-road and abused a lot.

Check gauge light is on

Check the ground out at the thermistate housing area. Put a new wire loop end if needed . but clean with wire brush or sand paper if it is on the housing . Try moving to the intake itself . Try this before tring a computer. Good Luck!

I left my truck rest for 12 days when I returned and drove it 50 miles the battery light came on and the elecrical gauge dropped to between 9 and 14. I drove it home another 34 miles and when I got home...

Likely a battery problem. Batteries tend to fail when they sit for a while. If your electrical guage was reading 9 - 14, with a dead battery, the alternator was working. Also, if the alternator was dead, you'd likely have noticed dimming headlights and other electrical issues.

But, you could take the battery to AutoZone and let them check it - free.

I have a 2000 Z714x4 silverado i drove 370 miles and when i got off the highway and came to astop and re excelerated there was a squeeking noise coming from the rear end. Whwn you get up to about 50 miles...

It's possible that the rear axle u-joint is shot, they can make a squeaking noise when bearings in the u-joint go, and it's located right in front of the rear axle, so the location of the sound also points to this as the possible problem. countrycurt0
