The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Express 1500. The contact stated that the ignition failed to start with several attempts, however after waiting fifteen minutes the vehicle began to operate normally. The vehicle would also stall unexpectedly when driving and then restart. The failure recurred numerous times. A certified mechanic replaced the pass-lock security system. In addition, the dealer replaced the ignition switch. The failure no longer persisted after both repairs were performed. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 58,000. Updated 05/19/14 MA updated 05/28/2014

My 2000 Chevrolet cargo van V8 5.7 L was park in my garage for 7 hours and I was alerted to the smoke by the smoke alarm in my garage. Turns out an electrical fire seem to have started in the fuse box. Still waiting on dealer for extent of damage. I was able to put out the fire with my home water hose.

While driving and or parking, it was difficult for the consumer to roll the windows up or down on the driver's side. The part was replaced three times. The window would only move about 1/4 an inch every minute or so intermittently. It was difficult to open roll down the window when going trough the toll booth. When the window was rolled down, it would take about 5-8 minutes to get it back up. GM suggested that this was normal. Other problems were: The right cargo door panels rubbed together and made noise, the seat belt light did not come on at times, there was a "whirring" noise when the vehicle was driven at 35 mph, the bar on the driver's side door did not have enough space for the consumer's hand to use it, the door locks would click when the vehicle was in motion, the mirror switch would work with the key in the off position, the left front window would stick at times, there was a clunk sound when the vehicle was placed in reverse at times, the right rear light was sometimes not bright enough, and the spring on the gas pedal broke.
