HI MY NAME IS***** TRY TO ASSIST YOU TONIGHT
HEY U THERE ?
I READ WHAT U WROTE ON HER , TELL ME AGAIN ABOUT DIM LIGHT IS DIM AT ALL TIMES OR WHEN U TRY TO START , AND WHEN U INSERT A KEY DOES SECUIRTY LIGHT ON ,
CAN YOU DO A HARD RESET IF I SHOWED U
LETS TRY TAKE A THE BATTERY TERMINALS OFF , POSITIVE & NEGATIVE AND TOUCH THEM WITH EACH OTHER
THEN RECONNECT FOR NOW
ALSO , WE NEED TO CHECK THE BATTERY , THIS DIMING DOWN , COULD BE BAD BATTERY , OF BAD STARTER IF U DIMING DOWN WHEN NEED TO CHECK AFTER RESET ,THE RESET WILL SLOVE ANTI THEFT ISSUE , BUT BAD STARTER WILL ASLO DIM DOW, DO U HAVE A VOLTMER TO HOOK UO\P ON BATTERY TO GET SOME READINGS ?
HOW THE PROBLEM STARTED ?
YES IT DOES , I TAKE IT NO SCANNER AVAILABLE , ITS 2015 , SO WE FIND OUT A LOT IF U DO HAVE ONE.
I SEE GLD U TOLD ME THAT
I HATE TO ASK AGAIN , WHAT IS SECURITY LIGHT DOING WITH KEY ON , THERE SHOULD BE ONE ON DASH OR INSIDE CLUSTER
WELL IF IT COMES ON FOR FEW SECONDS AND THEN OFF THAT MEANS IT RECOGNIZED THE KEY , WHICH IS GOOD
OK LET ME WHAT IS THE P1682, ONE SEC
WHAT SCANNER DO U HAVE IF I MAY ASK ? AND DID U HAVE COMUNICATION WITH ALL THE MODULES? PCM, TCM,BCM ,SRS ANTITHFEFT MODULE ECT...? THANKS
YEAH LET ME KNOW , I M HERE TILL 12 PM TONIGHT .
AND I WOULD TAKE A VISUAL CHECK UNDER THE CAR IF U HAVE ACCESS TO A LIFT OF ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY .
I mean i guess my answer will be not another igntion switch , if i understood ur question correctly, but that switch is connected to several modules , that all have to ,we call (shake hands) when u insert the key ,and if one or several of cant see each other for what ever reason being blown fuse , bad modules ,not recognize key , bad pcm,. and unfortunatley , water & electronics dont react with each other well :), but the best way in this case because we are not dealing with a common possible issue withis escalade , we need to isolate what happened from the water is the cause or we simply have a normal malfucntion, most likely water went somewhere and burned something causing the no start event or if you lucky sometime u can unplug them blow air in connectors and dry them up and reinstall , but this will be on case to case bases . but for now , lets see communication and a look around under frame and let me know ?
hey , have u got it running again
