Question about 2005 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

We own a 2005 GMC Sierra 4x4 crew cab 5.3 liter engine.When I first start the truck the battery light comes on and stays on. This only happens when we start it in the morning. The gauges show there is no problem with battery charging. When you first start the truck only (for the day) it starts up just a little slow then turns right over. We had the gauge cluster replaced (this was a recall), however this battery light issue was going on before that. After you drive the truck, or turn it off and start it back up, the battery light stays off.....the truck runs fine when the battery light is on. Shows it's getting a normal charge on the display/gauge. Truck only has 35,000 miles, I am pretty sure battery is fine.

You can get the battery load tested at just about any parts store. I would have this done. If it checks out good, get the charging system tested, and if that is good, you could possibly have a draw draining your battery when it's not running.

2005 Sierra 4x4 doesn't work, 4h light is on and stays on


My 2005 Sierra 4x4 did the same thing while running down the interstate on vacation. Scared me to death, thought it was going to shift into 4 wheel drive @ 80 MPR. Had to take to shop and they found a censor bad and they replaced it. Don't know cost, because truck was still under warranty.

This is a well known issue with model years 2003 thru 2005. There is a chance GM will replace it under recall... Call the Chevy Customer Assistance Center 1-800-630-2438 to find out.

If not and you want it fixed, try Southern Electronics at http://www.instrumentclusters.com/.
