It did stalled on them, and their computer registered a failure, but it showed no codes. I'm trying to save as much money as I can. I will never buy another vehicle from that dealership and I may never buy another Chevy. The used car dealer I bought it from is down in New Jersey, about an hour and forty-five minutes drive each way! The problem happens intermediately so it is very difficult to diagnose. The contact is in the process of taking the vehicle back to the dealer. Place back in park several times -- or wait 30-60 seconds to engage. I guess one step at a time.
I have read about defective sun gear in trasnsmission and that they were never taken out of service. Right front was actually the right rear. With the drive train code given this can then used to help this repairer using troubleshooting proceedures to make the correct repairs. I'd like to check continuity on those wires. Not even a message from the dash computer or a transmission light. Hi girl in need, Service 4x4 ligth comes up on my Yukon 2005 also. I assume this place is not, as they sell only used cars, and a hodge-podge at that.
I quickly put the truck in reverse as drive will not work any longer to get myself out of harms way. As far as paying again I would not an go back to the service department and tell them its there mistake and need to correct it, plus a rebuild carries a warranty. How will they determine whether it is the Encoder Motor, the sensor, or the switch on the dash? I didn't put it in four wheel drive it kicked its self into 4 wheel drive. As far as them doing the diagnostics, they did. Based on Corye advice I told them to just replace the encoder motor and sensor.
I should have been contacted about that recall why it was still viable. I brought it back to the dealership and they checked it out and told me that they couldn't get it to slip at first. They were told it only happened when the vehicle was first started or when it had been sitting for about 5 hours. Can I change it myself and then drive it to a shop with a scanner to have it programmed? I went to the dealer they said it was weather and my brakes getting run in. So, in my case, it won't cost the dealership anything to fix this. I' m having these same problems. States no repair should be attempted.
I have a 2005 silverado 1500 Z-71 with 201,000 miles on it which i have been having a problem with concerning the 4wd. It would be nice if I could pop a plug up top somewhere to check for a short or open. Can I change it myself and then drive it to a shop with a scanner to have it programmed? Next I'll start looking at the wiring harness. I think in the future, I'll advise anyone looking for a used Tahoe to check the transfer case fluid first! My vehicle hit a small bump in the road once while this was happening and actually was completely sideways at 50 mph. Approximately fifty thousand miles later, the failure recurred intermittently. I really want this fixed. Which happens when it is very humid outside.
But not available at manufacturers financial participation if out of basic warranty. It would rear its ugly head right after using the 4x4, the disappear after awhile. The failure mileage was 1,100 and the current mileage was 1,248. We ultimately walked away from the deal after wasting hours of our life trying to get a straight deal. Second failure little over a year later. Had I had an 18 wheeler behind be this could have been a disaster.
I have some mechanical ability so I have started checking things out. I have complained to the dealership numerous times about the poor mileage I am getting. Any educated ideas on this new twist? The automatic transmission shift lock control formerly known as the brake transmission interlock bsti does not operate with the key in the accessories position. Thanks for the info j cat. I pulled over and got out and looked under the truck and found nothing.
Had a 98 model truck just like it went till I rolled 250,000 on it with only minor problems. On Saturday my husband and I were driving on I-75 in the passing lane going 75 mph and the truck quit on us. I think I'll go out and get another Onstar diagnostic right now. . I have been a chevy owner all my life. There were no codes, however he was able to make the 2wd, 4hi, and 4low lights come on in the switch module so I assume that means the switch is fine? I should be able to install myself. So, not an immediate emergency.
Whether the end consumer purchases the extended warranty or not, the dealer is covered. So: Wondering what to do if the fluid is fried. When I worked for a plumbing company they had this some of their trucks. The contact stated that they refused to repair under warranty. A couple days later my husband was driving the truck, and it stalled on him while driving. Thank god I had slowed to about 20 mph to make the left turn when it happened or a crash could have resulted.
