Will not start. code reader says glow plug heater circiut malfunction.
Glow plugs-on fed truck usually the controller-on cal.equipped truck usually glowplugs themselves.
We are assuming the you have some of this codes:
- P0380 Glow Plug/Heater Circuit A Malfunction
- P0381 Glow Plug/Heater Indicator Circuit Malfunction
I found this after searching this and other diesel sites for about a week glow plugs are covered on factory extended warranty-10 years or 200000 miles call GM @ 1-800-462-8782 have VIN# ready
Models: 2002 - 04 Chevrolet Silverado
2002 - 04 GMC Sierra
Equipped with 6.6L Diesel V8 (RPO LB7 - VIN 1) Engine; and California Emissions (YF5/NE1), or Clean Fuel Emissions (VCL)
Condition: Some customers of 2002 - 04 model year Chevrolet Silverado;
and GMC Sierra trucks, equipped with a 6.6L diesel V8 (LB7) engine, and
California emissions (YF5/NE1), or Clean Fuel Fleet emissions (VCL), may
experience a condition where the engine glow plugs may fail. Failure of
the glow plugs on these vehicles will cause illumination of the MIL.
Also, depending on the ambient cold start conditions and the number of
glow plugs failing open, some customers may also comment about hard
starting, misfiring and white smoking after cold start.
Customer Notification: General Motors will notify customers of this
special coverage on their vehicles (see copy of typical customer letter
included with this bulletin - actual divisional letter may vary
Ask your local dealer.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your
feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if
you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
