I bought this 2014 Silverado new. The headlights are fogging up on the inside which makes it unsafe to drive at night. Also, the steering wheel is coming apart around the air bag, which may get in the way of me safely steering it or might cause the air bags to deploy.this vehicle is stored in a climate controlled enviroment every day. It does not sit outside, so the sun had nothing to do with this. I contacted GM and they said they would'nt help me. Please help as this is a safety issue not being able to see at night. Thanks. This vehicle only has 26000 miles on it. I own several GM vehicles, but this is the only one I have had trouble with.

While engaging slow idle speed turns, my 2014 Silverado will occasionally completely lose all power steering and the engine will shut off completely. I have also had the same issue occur while driving straight and applying the brake or rolling up windows. During these terrifying situations, a message comes across the dash saying one or all of the following "electronic power steering reduced. Drive with caution" "stabilitrack" "trailer brakes". this issue seems to be very sporadic and unpredictable. I looked up possible solutions and had a mechanic fix a poor grounding connection under the dash which they thought could be the cause but did not resolve the problem. Please help!

Cruise control will shut off when using turning signal or rolling up windows. It is very dangerous in busy interstate traffic. Service stabli track and steering assist reduced will come up on display. Power steering is intermittent when turning. Headlights flicker when turning signals are used. Truck will completely shut down for a split second while driving then everything comes back on, complete loss of control when this happens. When knob for headlights is turned from auto to on position the dash and instrument panel gets dim and stabli track and reduced steering assist message comes on. Rear passenger door will not lock using fob, sometimes I will have to hit the unlock button multiple times before door will unlock after lock has been manually pushed down. Passenger seat belt ding is also intermittent, sometimes it will not work at all. My truck just now started having all of these issues at the exact same time. We drove from Texas to Kentucky and back to Texas and these issues all started during this trip. It is not safe for my family, I have always bought Chevrolet and currently own this truck and a Tahoe but they may be my last. All bulbs are good, all fuses and relays are good. Truck now has 66000 miles on it. Battery was replaced around 59000 miles. Seems to be a wiring or ECM (computer) issue to me. I see many complaints similar to mine but yet no recalls have been issued for my VIN number.

Stabilitrak light kicks on and off, steering wheel locks up and shudders when turning at low speeds, headlights and dashlights blink like the trucks about to lose power. Searching online it looks like there is a device bulletin that fixes these issues, but I shouldnt have to pay for a safety and common issue with this truck. Pit5405A is the bulletin number.

Headlights flicker, radio head unit flickers, error messages (service stablitrak, traction control off, reduced steering assist) doors occasionally will lock and unlock and then truck will shut off all together. Steering wheel randomly jerk out of your hands. Somebody will end up dead if this issue is not fixed, and recalled. Very common through my research in 2014 Silverado/Sierra's.

The contact owns a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. While driving at slow speeds and making a left or right turn, the steering wheel seized and the vehicle stalled.

The contact stated that the failures were intermittent. The contact stated that the failures started after the vehicle was repaired per NHTSA campaign number: 17V414000 (steering). The vehicle was taken to ryan Chevrolet (1101 oliver rd, monroe, la 71201, (318) 387-2222) to be diagnosed, but the results were not provided. The vehicle was not repaired.

Two times tonight with two different vehicles in two different locations. Current generation Chevy Silverado "low" beam headlights are extreme danger to oncoming traffic. When being approached by current (2014 & newer) Silverado the oncoming drivers "dimmed" their lights resulting in no change to the blinding light approaching me. The only way I could tell that the drivers "dimmed" their lights was the change from 4 oncoming lights to 2 oncoming lights, the blinding intensity remained the same. This marks the umpteen-thousandth time I have been completely blinded by current generation Silverado "low" beam headlights. I might as well drive with my eyes closed because I am totally blind after meeting an oncoming current generation Silverado.

Silverado 1500 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
Traveling at approx. 65mph on US17 a divided four lane highway in traffic when the engine shut off with no warning which resulted in complete loss of lights, signals, flashers, horn, and the steering wheel went into locked position. I was able to safely bring the truck to a stop in the grass median. After collecting my thoughts I tried to restart the truck but there was no response and all electrical functions would not operate. About 10 minutes later while I was on my cell phone with a tow service the interior lights cam on along with the radio. The truck started up and after calling the closest GM dealer which happen to be only a few miles away I made my way to the dealership service dept. They were quickly able to identify the problem as GM had issued a service bulletin #pit5405C on this type of issue. It was caused by dashboard fabric trim being caught under a ground post during assembly that resulted in loss of all electrical service. The truck had approx. 40,000 miles at the time of the event and it seems it took either two years or that reasonably low mileage before the problem surfaced. The dealer repaired the problem by simply losing a ground post and trimming out the fabric intrusion. They were great and apologized for what they saw as clearly a defect in manufacturing. They did charge as the truck was out of the 36,000 mile warranty but said I should contact GM customer service for help with the cost. GM refused but it was only about $100 so that is not the issue. How can a company allow this problem to exist and be aware of it ( technical bulletin issued). It is a wonder that I or another motorist on the road with me was not hurt or worse. This not like a truck not starting but total loss of control at highway speed. Thanks [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I have had this issues happen numerous times. The first I was backing up into a parking spot and my service stabilitrak warning came on, and my steering wheel started jerking left and right on its own. 2nd time I was pulling into my parents drive way and warning came on while turning causing truck to jerk and I almost hit the corner of the house. A 3rd time happened again reversing but this time my headlights dimmed and I had multiple service warnings pop up. A 4th time I was again about to reverse. I was able to straighten up and while in reverse and foot on brake, I would turn steering wheel and it would jerk back to center on its own. I took video of that accurance. While driving on the highway yesterday night. I noticed my headlights kept going dim then bright. While in cruise control going 75mph I moved left to pass a vehicle, when I turned right signal on to come back to lane my cruise disengaged. This happend 5 times. Before one of the occurrences while in cruise I tapped the brake to slow down, and my volt gauge dropped to 10 or so and the headlights almlst shut off and all lights in cab flikered on and off. It almost felt like the truck was about to turn off but didn't. last issue, a few times I have tried to start the truck and the anti theft deterant comes on and I have to try numeros times to get truck to start.

After driving in any type of moisture (rain, snow, sleet) the highbeam lights have condenstation covering most or all of the lens inside. This moistue will vary based on the miles driven and intensity of the snow or rain regardless if highway or city driving. It does appear worse with highway driving. Chevrolet says "this is normal and we will only replace headlight assembly if there is standing moisture. The highbeams are functioning as designed. " this moisture does inhibit the lumins or light coming from the highbeams.

Intensity and coverage of headlights is terrible. The high beams are dim and there is no side coverage to allow seeing the edge of the road. I went into the ditch when trying to avoid oncoming cars and nearly hit a jogger.
