Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I will do my best to help answer your General Motors Vehicle questions.
Just to be correct is this the new body style Silverado?
Ok for some reason your vehicles engine computer is not receiving the security data from the body computer.
Will it spin over?
Under the steering column, its a programmable module, cant just swap it out.
Try to relearn the pass lock first.
Procedure as follows
Time required, approximately 30 minutes.Ensure that the battery is fully charged, ad a second battery or trickle charger as required. Use the scan tool to clear the DTCs or disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 minute.1 Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the CRANK position allowing the vehicle to try and start. The vehicle will start and then stall. 2 Leave the ignition switch in the ON position while observing the security indicator with the doors closed. 3 When the security indicator turns off, which can take up to 10 minutes, turn the ignition switch off. Wait 10 seconds. Repeat Steps 1-3 2 more times (3 times total). The BCM and the PCM/VCM will learn the new code on the next start attempt.
You posted you had not tried any repair attempts... You most likely have a bad passlock sensor or column wiring harness.
The passlock sensor is part of the ignition lock cylinder case. It requires the a special lock plate press to access it.
Condition(s) may be due to an incorrect Passlock sensor voltage received by the body control module (BCM) from the Passlock sensor due to the following conditions.
A 7 ohm variation in the sensor ground circuit wiring, circuit 1057
A 100 ohm variation in the Passlock sensor signal wiring circuit, circuit 1836
It will be on until you close the door. It should flash as soon as you open the door and stop flashing when you close the door. Is that correct? If not please explain what the symptoms are.
One more thing, to save some money you may want to buy the bypass kit for the pass lock sensor. It is much cheaper and more reliable. Its up to you to research and choose a brand.
Is your light on or flashing? If it stays on/flashing thats a problem with content theft security also.
Companies that sell remote start systems have a bypass kit to eliminate the pass lock sensor.
That is something I did forget to ask you. Do you have any type of alarm or remote start? If so it changes the entire diagnosis.
Your vehicle has 2 separate functions as a theft deterrent.
Content theft, sounds horn if an attempt to break in while locked.
Theft deterrent, kills fuel injectors after attempt to start.
Since you have a current code Id start with that, but you may have to access the BCM functions and data to diagnose the remaining.
Depending on how much time and money you want to spend, you can either replace the pass lock sensor and column harness, or bypass the sensor with a kit or a resistor, if your electrical savy. The bypass is cheaper and reliable.
Just search how to bypass GM Pass lock.
I dont endorse a particular brand, because I make my own with resistors from radio shack.
