Question about 1994 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

1994 Chevy truck 1500 Z71 Truck will run fine for a period of time and then just die. Haven't seen this issue on this truck but son in law describes it as if the battery has been removed; no electrical power whatsoever. Supposedly, battery, cables, alternator, and/or other things have been replaced by a dealership's shop but the same thing keeps happening. Letting the truck sit for a day or so temporarily ''solves'' the problem.

Check ground cables on rear of engine over near the firewall, could possibly have a bad ground, causing everything to shut down. Could possibly be a bad computer, Have the truck put on the computer diagnostic system to have it checked, Dealership should have done this... I would return it to the dealership and get with the manager and complain that the problem is not fixed, if you complain enough they should fix the truck for free. If they stated the truck was fixed the first time, Don't let them say it was not the same problem. you brought the truck there for this issue and it has not been fixed, they should guarantee their work.

Truck suddenly stopped running like battery was dead. Got a jump nut only ran for 1-2 seconds then stopped again


I have a 2003 Chevy Avalanche 1500 Z71 4X4. What you describe happened to me (6) times last week. #1, I replaced the ignition switch, $32.00. The issue happened again last night and recorded the code P1514 (Throttle Body performance condition). #2, I cleaned the MAF (mass airflow sensor) and the throttle body. These parts require specific cleaners, which can be purchased at any parts store. Truck runs like new. Best regards, Mike Pyne

94 Chevy 1500 truck, seems to be getting fuel, pump sounds like working when checked. Replaced Mapping sensor, had distributor check, but truck continues to run fine for awhile, then just die for no reason...


These sometimes have problems with the magnet on the distributor shaft loosing magnetism. This causes the pickup coil not to be able to produce a strong enough signal for the ignition module and the engine dies because of no spark.

Speedometer loser power for a second


the dash clusters in the 03 -07 chevy 1500-6500 trucks have issues with their motors that are in the cluster. they work then don't, stick, jam, reset, etc. GM has a recall on these if your truck is privately owned and under 125000 KMs, Just contact the dealer to start and ask if you truck is included in this recall. If it isn't then you might want to find someone to repair it. we repair these unit often. good luck to you
