2005 Silverado front brake sticking

The heat of the system causes the air to expand more than brake fluid and it actually applies pressure to the brakes as you warm up the vehicle. Hopefully you bench bled the master cylinder or took the time to bleed it on the vehicle before hooking up the brake lines. If not, start there. I've been at this a while and want to take a minute to make sure you did it as it should be done. During this entire process, do not let the master cylinder reach the bottom or you have to start over. You should cautiously fill the master cylinder to the correct full amount and re-install the lid to limit splashing (air gets into the fluid) during the bleeding operation. This is a 2 person operation. First, to get all of the air out you must start at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, the Right Rear! Now, after breaking the bleeder valve loose but still not letting brake fluid drain,,, have your assistant pump the brakes until tight as possible and then hold the pedal to the floor until the fluid has been bled from the first location. DON'T release the brake pedal until you have made sure the bleeder valve is closed. Repeat this until you have no air at all and clean fluid. Now, do the next wheel. Left Rear! Next the Right Front, and finally the Left Front. By following this method you will have eliminated all of the air from the brake system as long as you don't have any leaks.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado stereo with OnStar need to know when I take the factory radio out and install a new radio how do I bypass the OnStar harness

You will need to purchase a separate module that will allow the factory options that originally are routed through the radio to still work. Believe it or not, many GM vehicles will not start with the factory radio removed unless the separate emulator installed.

Fuel gage and speedometer don't work

remove the dash clean the connectors and refit, sounds like its become un-seated on the connection, if you push on the dash and see if it comes to life again or parts come back then this is the fault, other fault can be the board on the back of the dash, damp etc can cause electrical problems, it may need drying, and you can re seal the board with nail varnish clear but you will need to re-solder all the connections back on first then use the varnish, the varnish should last years longer than the flaky stuff they use from new, just make sure its dry before plugging back in to the vehicle.

ABS brakes grunt, groan noise with brake pedal travel.

Joe it is common for the brakes to moan when they wear down and sometimes they will squeak, try replacing the front pads and lubing the shafts on the calipers install anti squeal on the back of the pads, the ABS device would not cause noise as they are just a ring with a magnet and the reluctor ring spins and the magnet detects the spinning of the reluctor ring, they don't even touch and are stationary in place where they are mounted. There is a possibility that the brake fluid is dirty and could cause the abs motor to groan but you would just have to flush the system, When you don't put your foot in it on the brakes it will make some noise even new, I have a 2008 ford ranger that makes the same noise and the brakes are fine. You will have to adjust your braking habits to stop the noise. You can change the pads and that will help but not for long, be sure when you are operating your brakes press firmly on the pedal until you stop. If the brakes make noise after you let up on the pedal then the caliper parts need to be cleaned and lubed, however it is not a safety issue.

2005 chevy silverado battery drain issues

Install a meter in series with the neg battery cable. After all modules go to sleep your drain amount should be 50milliamps or less. Trick all doors into thinking they are closed by tripping the latches manually so the vehicle remains asleep while you have access to the interior. Pull ALL fuses and breakers 1 at a time until you see the meter read close to the given spec. This will disclose the circuit that the draw is coming from and let you see the actual amount of the draw live as you are investigating.

My 2005 silverado is running

Vacuum leak, tear in the air duct between the MAF and throttle body. Have it scanned to see what the fuel trims show. A vacuum leak will cause the PCM to add more fuel to correct a lean condition. That'll cause misfires and load the converter, causing it to melt down and restrict exhaust. Sound like you're throwing parts at it instead of diagnosing the problem
