Have a complete service done on your truck. When your fluids are changed, have the technician look for metal particles in them. While some are common, if a lot are present, it may indicate sever wear. I would look for this especially in the engine oil. Though I doubt any damage was done, that was for sure very stressful on your truck. I didn't know that a truck would go that fast in 4low. Also watch the behavior of your transmission and engine. Your transfer case should be shifted a few times too.

SOURCE: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Fuel Pump

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?

SOURCE: 2002 2500 Silverado tailgate handle will not release catches

I found that loosening the bolts on the inside of the tailgate made the job a little easier. Don't remove them. I could get to the trim piece from the inside to make sure I didn't break it. Pep Boys does sell the small package of clips for about $1.00. Make sure you don't break the clip and hope it works anyway like I did and ended up doing the job twice. I should have bought a second package of clips.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump shutoff switch located on a 1996 chevy silverado 1500 located

Should be on the passenger side kickplate below the glovebox and to the right. You may have to remove the plastic panel to access it or look for a small hole in it and feel around for the button

What could keep my coil from firing ? I have the Ignition control signal and 12v. while cranking over engine at the top primary wiring of coil. Can you help me get spark?


Sounds like the security system is causing your problem. Is the "security" light flashing? If it is, turn the key on, leave the key in the ON position for 10 minutes. The light will stop flashing. Now, turn OFF the key, turn it back to ON, and then crank it. It should start. If the security light starts flashing again, go through the process again until it starts. This is resetting the security system after the battery has died, battery has been changed, radio was changed, instrument cluster was removed and replaced, etc. Hope this works for you.

04 silverado will not crank


Could be security. Does the light stay on and/or flashing? Turn the key to run, let sit for ten minutes, turn off for 30 seconds, try to start.This is reset. If you need relearn, do the 10 minutes and 30 seconds 3 times then try to start. Throw a charger on it because if the lights come on it will drain the battery. Any interruption, ad you have to start over. It could be a starter, wiring, or a bad neutral safety switch.

Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills


You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

Gmc savana security light on starts but dies right away seems as though the ground side of injectors stops pulsing what could cause this?


Perhaps the security key is not working with your car, but I am surprised that it would start at all with that working against your trying to start and run the car.

Security light flashing won't start


You need to reprogram the security system. Hook up a battery charger. Turn the key on for 11 min. The security light should go off. Turn the key off for 5 sec. Turn the key on for 11 minutes again. repeat this three times. After the 3rd time the truck should start

I have a 1999 chev silverado 5.3L. Engine will


What is the fuel presure? on a vortech engine the presure needs to maintain 60-66 pounds. It is possible that the fuel filter is restricting the flow of gas or could also be a weak pump... just a another thing to check... hope it helps.

I have a 2002 chevy silverado 1500 it seem that it is not getting fule it will not stay running and will start for a second but then stop when I try to give it gas or not give it gas I think it is the fule...


sounds like the security system is malfunctioning. When you turn the key on does the security light stay on steady or flash? If flashing leave the key on for about fifteen minutes till it stays on steady. the engine should then start. if it does not go steady, likely you need to replace the ignition key switch assembly.

Security light flashes on and then the truck wont start for 5 min


the key is bad or the ignition is bad
if the key and switch do not match just right you will get a security flash and a delay start.
about five mins.
its the key and the switch.
sometimes getting a new key works good.
have the dealer do it for you.
