SOURCE: Heater/ac switch speeds 1 and 2 don not work in 99 Silverado

you need a resister found under your air duct by the passenger floor under dash board auto zone sells these for about 25.00 you may as well buy cabin air filters while your at it . 1 of the screws will be a pain to install back into the duct work I left mine out didn,t make a difference . you might have to order it as they are a comman item oh you will need a vacuum to clean up mess from cabin air filters .this is not a hard job .

What cases this is a bad signal from your sening unit in the gas tank. Before you go out tearing that apart check the wire harness from the tank to the frame. The wire's may have a break in it and Good luck

SOURCE: my 99 chevy silverado power window stoped working

This would more than likely NOT be a sensor problem.

In replacing the hinges you more than likely disrupted the wires that run from the cab into the door, causing a ground, pinching a wire or in some way causing no power to get through one of the wires. There is a rubber boot that runs between the door and the cab, pull it back and have someone hold the button in the down position. Then wiggle the wires until the window moves. That truck will have defog mirrors on it more than likeley so there will be plenty of wires to wiggle. When you find the problem wire simply cut the problem area, replace it with an end to end connector (**** connector) and seal it with silicone. If it is not one of the wires, you more than likely had a wire come off inside the door. (depends on how much you horsed it when you were changing those hinges) Thats where i'd start.

Best Of Luck!

Pull the vaccum line from the regulator to see if it smells like fuel. If so then the regulator needs replacing.

My 2002 chevy silverado 1500 series died on me while i was driving .I managed to coast it to the side of the road.When i tried to start it, it would die after 5 secods.Any hints on what is the problem

Could be eletical or fuel related. if it is running rough, it could be bad spark plug cables, or weak charging system, bad alternater. if power system is ok. Then i would think feul pump.

Truck died while driving

sounds like the fuel pump has failed, this is a common fault on this year, also the fuel pump connector is a problem at the gas tank, the new pump will come with a new connector, make sure you splice on the new connector, use a pair of wire crimp pliers and do it right or the problem will occur again.

Power locks and mirrors out. Driver power window out.

Your chevy uses two fuses for the system. The power lock actuators are on the 15 amp fuse inside the truck. The fuse for the switches (locks and mirrors) are under the hood. For 99 to 04 (I think those are the years) there is a TSB on replacing the 3 amp fuse under the hood with a 5 amp fuse because this is a well known problem of having these blow.

Your drivers side window is a different issue. If the rest are working your problem is in the motor or getting power to the motor. The wires that go from the body to the door often crack and break with the opening and closing of the door.
