WelcomeCustomer I am sorry for the delay in responding to your question. Is the check engine light? If so, have you retrieved the code?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yes the engine light is on. No I do not have any codes..........thanks.
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 8 years ago.

What are you using to retrieve the codes? If the check engine light is on while the engine is running, there is a code somewhere that affects the emission system.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
At this point, I do not have any scan tool or anything to retrieve the codes.......

Can you get your truck to a parts store like auto zone or parts source? It is my understanding that they are able to scan vehicles. Maybe if your truck is under warranty, being an 07 and having the 100,000 mile powertrain warranty that GM has, this might be an option.
