Customer Question

Chevy Silverado has no ground.
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Are those all of the "symptoms"?
Customer: on Vent control valve solenoid. 12 volts on red wire
JA: Anything else I can tell the Chevy Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: no
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
so it should have ground when the key is on? (not started just on)
Expert:  Roy replied 1 year ago.
but you stated no ground??? no, as I stated, only when the system checks itself. the solenoid may be working but the valve may not be sealing. very common failure for this code.
