Also, the scan tool I use is an INNOVA 3100a CanOBD2 code reader. And I just fried my starter trying to get it going lol. My luck this year! Any input is welcome, I will have another starter hopefully by the middle of the week

ok, that good to know. I wonder what would make it so it would only work one way when it gets old or dirty?

In Forum: Ford Trucks

so it sounds like a transfer case problem. Like the transfer case went into neutral. but need more info about what happened and more detail on what happened to get gears back in 2wd

check your starter relay in the underhood junction block by the right strut tower. does the relay click when someone puts the key in the start position? on your vehicle, the key doesn't go directly to the starter relay or starter solenoid. It goes to the computer and the computer turns on the relay for the starter solenoid. So, if the starter relay doesn't click and you can't bypass the relay

In Forum: Chevy Tahoe

make, model, year and engine will help to figure what's going on. Once it starts, does it stay running fine? How do you prime it to get it started? Is it mostly the first time you start it in the morning (after a long engine cool down) or anytime you start (you start it and then shut it down and then try to restart)

In Forum: GMC Trucks

I would look at the ignition switch

In Forum: Chevy Silverado

you should check with a local wrecking yard to see if it's fully interchangeable. Napa shows the same long block for both years but Chev shows the 99 short block but a different number for the 2001 and it says the 2001 is discontinued. But I have seen the OE sites make mistakes before.


Thank you for the help, was great, for what I would of paid at the Dealer ($110.00) your mechanic helped me for free and it was done in less than 30 min. Awesome web-site, thanks again.

Awesome advice. It's nice to know that even a tech that is having trouble diagnosing a problem has some place he can go to bounce ideas and seek advice from other certified Tech's.

It is so nice to have a website all about car that even a woman that does not know anything about auto repair can come to and get some free help.
