Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Box truck. I was told that the computer is bad becase each time I drive it, the lights flicker on the dash board and the head lights. Now today I noticed when I drove it, the trans does not want to shift. I have to let off the gas at 20mph in order for it to shift in first gear. My question is; Does the computer control the shifting of the trans?

I would first have alternator and battery checked
if either is bad it is not keeping up the demand for electric current which will in turn cause lights to flicker and computer to malfunction

Please help 1999 318i bmw..speedo not working fuel & temperature gauge flickering constantly...whats wrong???


I fix a lot of clusters. Most of the time it is just a bad connection at the plug. Since you 3 unrelated things, I would guess at this is your problem. Moist bezels around the dash just pop off. You'll have to remove the kick panel under the steering wheel fist, it has screws on the bottom. Just look at the bezels and see if you find any screws

You probably have a loose wire to the gear console switch, or a bad board somewhere. Check to see that you have voltage going to the lights in the console.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read


Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

Flickering lights on 2001 Chevy tracker


I had similar problems, with dash board lights and headlights flickering, and the problem was a dying alternator. After I changed it, everything got back in normal. Also, a bad alternator eventually will kill your car's battery, too. I hope this will help you.
