Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I don't have the code numbers right now... but I do remember they were codes with both banks of O2 sensors and relays. There was not a code triggered for the remote starter but it stopped working at the same time. The remote starter button... when pressed will light up the turn signals and tail lights as if it's going to start but then nothing happens.
I might have the codes in the truck but I can't get to them right now. (at work) Sorry.
Here is the deal:
There is nothing wrong with your remote start. The system is disabled due to the Engine Light being illuminated. Get the engine light fixed and remote start will start working again.
As for the O2 sensor codes, there are 4 sensors total, and they can set a variety of codes based on what may be wrong, so knowing exactly what code is set is vital.
However, also take note, that your vehicle has the 5 year, 100,000 mile Powertrain warranty, so regardless of what code is set, it should be covered and repaired at not cost.
However, if you can locate the codes and want to post them, I'd be happy to investigate it further for you.
Can I have Onstar send you the codes somehow?
I live inconveiniently far from a chevy dealership for service... If it was as simple as a fuse bad or something I could handle that easily... if I knew what it was. If it is a difficult repair then I will take it to a shop, but that will be hard for me.
I got the codes from Onstar... as follows
OK, thats a huge help. Those codes indicate a problem with both rear Oxygen Sensors, and they both share the same fuse in the underhood fuse box: O2-B SNSR
Check to see if this fuse is blown. If it is, before you replace the fuse, you need to check the wiring going to the sensors. Its common (if your truck is a 4WD model) for the Oxygen sensor wiring to rub on the front driveshaft and short out. If one sensor shorts, it blows the fuse for both sensors on that circuit.
Fuse #8 is indeed blown... but it's too dark (and cold here) for me to check the wiring today. I will check it tomorow! Great Call! Thanks very much!
