problem #2

Jan 152006

Silverado 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 288,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving 10mph in rush hour traffic the dashboard lights failed to illuminate. Afterwards, the service engine soon light illuminated and the transmission locked up which caused the vehicle to stall. The vehicle was towed to an independent repair shop. Upon inspection the mechanic determined there was a short circuit in the fuses under the dash. Although, the components in the transmission burned there were no fire. The transmission was rebuilt, but the service engine soon light still illuminated. The vehicle is being inspected to determine the exact cause.

Silverado 3500 8-cyl

Gas gauge has started to act up - bounces around, dumps down to empty and low fuel sensor light in dash comes on even though tank may be full. Began doing this after 60,000 miles. Did have it do this once before but did not repeat until recently so I never had it checked out. I have been to my mechanic (who's GMC truck is also doing the same thing) and was told this is a common problem.
