Thankfully I was going slow at the time. Nevertheless, were starting to see the same complaints on the newer trucks that run from 2007 through 2013. I agree I'd try a junkyard switch for confirmation. Learn how to perform the reset procedure and replace the ignition lock cylinder. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing which indicated that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. Several icons that had never been displayed on the dashboard screen appeared, and my vehicle's clock reflected 12:00.
The highest temperature reading I got at the alternator output stud was 195 degrees F. This condition is most dangerous when driving in confined spaces such as parking lots. It was a scary moment, we were lucky that no big rig was following us, or it would had runs us over, and probably killed us. Last week it happened about every 2 minutes while driving down the road. The dealership said that the failure was normal.
In some cases, operating the wheel of the dimmer switch gets the lights working for a short period of time. Very scary, as I thought the truck was just going to shut down. If I use the windows, locks, or even radio it seems like the lights flicker dash lights, radio lights etc. That's not how you find a short, that's for parasitic draw finding. Not only is it a safety issue it is also a financial risk in terms of tickets. I've taken these switches apart and found the little electrical wiper blades that ride against the resistor on the circuit board wear out.
However, I did find a two-minute video that walks you through. I took the vehicle to the dealer and they said that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. I was coasting downhill into another car when I hit the brakes and there were no brakes. The consumer stated the electrical system is faulty. Additionally, the headlights intermittently work at night and the gas gauge provides an incorrect display of the proper fuel level. If I don't know how fast I am going I am I am creating potential hazard. The issues needs to be addressed immediately.
The failure mileage was approximately 6,181. Submitted the car to the dealer for evaluation of an electrical problem. Upon exiting my truck I always get a huge shock!! There were tsbs for the failure, as well as for several others. It is behaving normally now, but this seems to be a recurring issue with this vehicle, and gm has not provided other owners any relief if the vehicle is past its warranty period. After about 10 minutes of operation the stator was at 124 degrees F.
I have an appointment at the dealership to have it looked at. Envoy is equipped with the 373 axle ratio and can not pull an enclosed 24ft travel trailer on it's 6 cylinder engine. Furthermore you can usually get the dash back lights working again by playing with the dimmer wheel. When you rotate the dimmer wheel it also changes the intensity of the backlight for the radio. In other words, the dash lights worked fine before the aftermarket radio installation. I'll swap in my optimum from my 02. Have it checked or the car can catch on fire.
. I have almost hit wildlife too many times to count due to the poor visibility caused by these dangerous headlights. When pulling trailer for a distance as little as 2 miles the engine heats up, and he experiences a loss of speed and engine the bogs down to 30 mph. If it starts working again go ahead and order a new switch, because it won't last long. It slammed through the garage door, I quickly shifted into park and shut off the engine.
The during the transition from decline to incline, you sometimes have barely a trucks length of illumination. The dealer disconnected and reconnected the camera systems thinking the connection might have an issue by being contaminated,oxidized, or loss. They rarely illuminate the distance between 2 telephone poles. If the speed limit is the recommended safe speed. Later that week, the speedometer displayed 55 mph while the vehicle was in park. The 2nd trip to dealer, the service manager did duplicate this problem and suggested the consumer needed a V8 engine.
