Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Electrical System in 2000 Chevy Silverado Truck

My battery goes down overnight when it is connected to the truck. I disconnected the battery and it kept its charge. I've been told the battery is ok. I previously had a problem with the electric window on the passenger side door. If you hit the door the window would work. I wonder if there is a problem with the wiring in the door panel. How do I remove the panel so I can check.

    Thanks a bunch! Although the problem was not the power windows your suggestion on removing fuses led me to a faulty casset player that was running non stop.



    THANKS AGAIN!

Should be no power to the window with the key off. check that out.
Pull the fuse for the power windows. If it still goes down look elsewhere.
Check the voltage on your charge system. 14plus engine running. Not! Have it fixed. Bad Diode would be my choice.
ps: Power window actuators a cheap these days 80 - 99 bucks.

Tccm removal 01 2500 chevy silverado


The TCM is located in the right rear corner of the engine compartment. If you are buying a used TCM from a vehicle that has the same exact specifications, as yours then removal and instalation is easy. Disconnect battery, remove mounting screws and unplug electrical connections, and reverse. If you are buying a new TCM, make sure that the Dealership will sell you a preprogrammed unit. Unless a preprogrammed unit is available. it wont work. You will need to get the truck to the Dealership for this repair. Good luck.

Hi,
Go search on a Chevy Forum, but likely the solenoid that shafts the transfer case is faulty. You might try resetting it by disconnecting the Neg. battery connection overnight....IF your truck has an alarm or radio key code you MUST know how to reset these b4 disconnecting the battery!!

I have a heater core leak on my 2000 chevy silverado V6, is there an easy fix?


You can bypass the heater core, you just wont have heat anymore. On the firewall of the truck, behind the engine, you will see 2 rubber heater hoses that go into the firewall. They attach to the heater core. Disconnect them and get a plastic connector, and connect the 2 hoses together with clamps to hold them down. This will stop coolant from going into the heater core, and no more leak.

New battery -alarm sounds- have to disconnect the battery-


The sounding alarm maybe a security system installed by in the truck. Disconnecting the battery will only temporarily solve your problem, but will resume once you reconnect the battery for electrical power.

You must find the keychain/remote of the security system and disable it. If you are unable to locate this, you can have it disconnected by a qualified automotive electrician.

Word of caution though, if you are using the keyless entry system with the security system, this will be disabled until you install a receiver with such function.

Hope this helps.

2003 Chevy 2500 HD-Problems with it quitting while its idleing


This is going to sound crazy but i had the same problem with my 2003 silverado, changed the plugs, battery, and alternator with no sucess at all. Finally took my truck to a well respected auto repair shop locally in my area and they suggested i change the fuel filter under the truck. Crazy right? Why not, so i did and my truck ran perfect after i changed it. Shop tech said my truck was starving for fuel which in turn was not letting the alternator spin above the correct RPMs at all times which in turn caused the electrical computer system to not operate correctly. If you tried everything might as well try the fuel filter before you have to spend big bucks at the repair shop. Hope this helps.
