The Check Engine light stayed on means an Error Code is set. You will need an OBDII Code Reader to read / reset the code. If you do not have one, take your car to Autozone, they will do it for you FREE. Vote for me if this helps.

ark your Chevy Avalanche on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter.

  • 2 Remove the positive battery cable nut and the engine harness ground nut. Disconnect the positive battery cable and ground wire from the solenoid.
  • 3 Unscrew and remove the starter mounting bolts. Place all nuts and bolts in a safe place to prevent loss, such as a baby food jar.
  • 4 Detach the heat shield if necessary. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  • 5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it.
  • 6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual by registering with the Chevy Owner Center (see Resources).
  • 7 Install the new starter motor by reversing the removal process. Tighten the heat shield nut to 44 inch pounds (five Nm) and the bolt to 35 inch pounds (three Nm).
  • 8 Torque the starter mounting bolts to 37 foot pounds (50 Nm). Tighten the ground wire retaining nut to 30 inch pounds (3.4 Nm) and the positive battery cable retaining nut to 80 inch pounds (nine Nm).
  • 9 Lower your Avalanche back to the ground. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the key in the ignition to see if your new starter motor functions correctly.

    yes its often that dealers will advise that if car starter installed there is no gurentee as well the car if its finish with the gurentee the tech line advises the mechanics to remove any after market devices installed to repair the original system but most of the time the starter is not the problem but it eliminates it sometimes the car starter has extra features that cause problems in the startingcircuit for example when the car starter installed the main wire is put it between the starter and ignition so if the wire is cut to far this causes a lost between the ignition switch and the starter or the module can be damaged and the same thing apears and so on

    Do a bench test on the starter. Remove starter, hook up a ground cable to starter, and positive to two prongs on starter and it should spin. You can do this in vechile too but not suggested due to risk of injury. If it doesn't spin, probally a solenoid or the starter it self. Unlikely but possible.

    2006 uses OBDII system and you will need a OBDII scanner to check the problem. Now keep in mind that when you do a scan you will get many codes. Usually the first in line is the one that started the problem. Good luck
