You can try learn procedure, see if it helps? Some of my info says to hook-up battery charger on low charge, this is a 30 minute procedure.
When you try to start and key returns to run position, if the security lamp on the dash doesn't start flashing, your security system might not be the problem?
When battery voltage is lost some of your vehicle systems/modules may or may not have problems.

I tried to get everything on one page, makes it a little small to read. Check for voltage and ground at the starter motor. Any testing make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and the starter relay energized, goes to starter S terminal. The neutral or clutch switch is also involved in that circuit. Use a test light to check for voltage. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Make sure battery has a full charge. When you check fuses, also, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit, applicable fuses.

2005 z71 Silverado v-8 4X4 not working.
Case History 07 09 13
Problem started with service 4wDrive message. It would come and go. Got worse as time went on. Then it got to All switch lights would only come on 3 seconds when key turned on and again when started for 3 seconds. Then no 4X4 and no lights. Researched on internet and noted problem was often solver by replacing control switch due to bad solder joints. Ordered new switch. Changed out with no change. Replaced old switch.
Went to AutoZone and checked codes. Had 4 codes B2725, B0790 (both Cleared) and Codes C0327 & C0040 (Both would not clear)
Next I decided before taking to the shop to try cleaning the contacts although I thought I was probably wasting my time. Went to radio shack and bought electronic contact cleaner spray.($9.98). Pulled 30 amp fuse under hood and raised vehicle. Disconnected plug on transfer case and sprayed contacts on both plugs(male & female). Thoroughly dried with compressed air and plugged back in. Just knew this wasn't going to fix it. Also sprayed both plugs on both sides of transfer case(Rear) (2 speed sensors I think). Anyway to make a long story short started up truck and all was normal:o) Every thing work fine and all lights and all modes work correctly. Hope you have this easy of fix to cure your 4X4 problem.

Ok I don't know who these people are giving advice but I hope they are not gm mechanics. There is a fuse under the hood marked MBEC 1 50amp. If it blows it knocks out both power seats seat heaters and power windows passenger side front and back. I can't believe all this wiring ****!

YOU'RE IN LUCK!!! There's a recall for the instrument cluster on this vehicle.

Take it to the dealer and it shouldn't cost you anything for the repair.

The gauge problems are pretty common on the 03-06 Silverados, it's caused by failing gauge motors inside the instrument cluster. Check this page for more on how to get it fixed - Silverado Instrument Cluster Repair

This means your vehicle has failed to complete one or more of a series of self-diagnostic tests, usually but not always emissions related. The only way to find out which system has failed the test is to have the Diagnostic Trouble Codes read with special diagnostic equipment. Once you know the codes stored in your vehicle's computer, it will help determine what repairs are needed.

The adjustment is about 2/3 of the way down the body, drivers side, by the frame. the cable is one down to a strap that turns to two, there is a bolt that goes through the strap with a nut on it . that is the spot that you adjust the e-brake at. make sure you lube it up before you try to adjust it. tighten a little at a time.

Drain it,be sure where it is leaking,the surface is dry,then use a tube of clear silicone to bond it where it leaks.After putting the silicone let it dry for 1 hour before refill it with water.
