2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 282004

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles


Truck had 41000 miles and the gas gauge started jumping from empty to full. Around 44000 miles the ABS brake light on the dash appeared, took to dealer, said it was the sensor at/near the center bottom of engine and was common, it would cost me around $1000 to have it repaired or wait to see if it was recalled and just drive my truck using the hyd brakes only. I have been doing this. Had only the man. Warranty that ended at 36 K. very disappointed, very long.

On 9/22/05 I had smoke coming out of the steering wheel column. On 9/23/05 I brought my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado to the champion Chevrolet dealer for diagnostics. It was determined that the multi function switch P/N 26100839 was damaged and needed replacement. This is a fire hazard and should be recalled by GM. I do have the old damaged switch.
