Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

GM has released a service bulletin dealing with the type of problem you are having that may very well be related to the problem you are having. It calls for reprogramming the ECM to solve this issue. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below for your review. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.
