It started by not starting with light on you could wait 18 min and would start it wouldn't do again for about a month or so then do it again until now Could it be in ignition switch

Have you tested for spark and injector pulse? Is your scantool capable of checking BCM codes or only PCM? Thanks.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How do you check for spark and injector pulse when we checked codes and it read pin error was told any coder would read same
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

There are a few different modules in the vehicle and some scantools can read codes in all the modules but most of the cheap ones can only check PCM codes. I'll open question up to see if someone else has some ideas, I think a scantool capable of reading all modules would be beast at this pont.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

I tested each one and both made tone on tester when grounded
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok so this gets very difficult. there is a splice pack in the harness behind the dash near the plug. Its #3 in the first picture. Pull the centre pin out and then connect manually the terminal for the Body Control Module (BCM) and Powertrain Control Module (PCM) only and see what happens. Then connect the pin for the plug and each module and probe for codes with your scanner. The pinout is also attached. If you find a module that is killing the data line, let me know and I can direct you on its location and carry on.

Contacted local Chevrolet Dealer to get BCM programmed and he said that it couldn't be done and if numbers where same it would work . I asked if he could plug it up and see if was programmed right and was told the older BCM he couldn't test. I told he about other issues going on he said it was probably the ignition switch or passlock. Does anyone have any other problems like these that could help solve this

I have diagnosed one or two of these types of symptoms as bad instrument clusters. From my sources it seems to be a relatively common failure. If you're confident in taking it apart you will likely see a problem with the printed circuit board inside.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I removed the instrument cluster and everything looks good except the small board at bottom behind gear indicator one corner was discolored little bit
Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,
 replied 2 years ago

Could you possibly upload a picture of that spot and the opposite side of the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) in that spot that looks like it got hot? I will give you my opinion as to whether or not that could be your culprit. Throwing parts at things gets expensive quickly but at this point I'd be frustrated enough to swap one out of another truck. Do you have access to an ammeter (usually a function of a DVOM)? If so can try a parasitic draw test? I can find you the procedure.

I received your email. The discoloration you pictured probably wouldn't be enough for me to risk throwing a new cluster at it. I've seen that type of color on boards in cars that are heavily smoked in from time to time. Does your truck still start with a good battery? Did it start with a boost or good battery before the BCM was replaced? If it did and doesn't now I would recc. re-installing the original BCM. If it only doesn't start after it's been sitting then we need to do a few more tests with the multimeter. I can walk you through the procedure if need be.

The security light was staying on but would start if battery wasn't low or jumped, daylight running lights don't work, radio goes off when key is turned off, dome light doesn't work these issues happened all same time truck battery low now charging but there is a buzzing noise under dash that quits when brake pedal is pushed I have put orignal bcm back in

Try unplugging the ignition switch while the key is off and out of the lock cylinder. If the lights and noises go away replace the ignition switch.

Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,

A problem with the ignition switch could be causing some computers to not power up. A problem with the instrument cluster could also be killing the serial data line which is a line used to establish a communication circuit between all of the different modules and computers on your truck. Your instrument panel is also known as an IPC or instrument panel cluster module: For what that's worth to you.

Ok instrument panel back in turned key to on everything come up except now security light or red battery light doesn't come on still won't start
Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,
 replied 2 years ago

Is it now a crank/no start, or is it a no crank condition? if you cycle the key in the ignition a bunch of time can you get any of the old symptoms to return?

If it is because of a no crank/no start condition you also need to be sure that the battery isn't drained again. But I'm guessing you've already verified it has a good charge.

I put charged battery in and low battery out all gauges respond except message center and light under it. Try to start it turns over but doesn't even tries to run
Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,
 replied 2 years ago

Are you also saying that the Security and battery light don't come on at all during the initial bulb check when turning the key on? Or are those working okay after swapping for a fresh battery? Does repeated cycling of the key change any of the symptoms? if not what about wiggling the connector on the back of the IPC or tapping on the IPC with the heel of your palm or knocking on it with you knuckles (use a small rubber mallet in place of your knuckles if you're working in the cold to prevent injury)

Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,
 replied 2 years ago

Does it start with the cluster harness unplugged? I would try that and plug it back in and look for a change in symptoms one more time. Then look for corrosion on the underside of the underhood fuse box if I couldn't prove the cluster or ignition switch bad. Finally after all of that I think I would kill it with fire.

Unplugging cluster still no change no corrosion seen . I removed radio earlier then put back in did I need to reset anything for the thief system for radio
Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,

Off the top of my head I'm not sure but I don't believe so. I'm just about at a loss here. My best shot in the dark guess would be throw a known working cluster in it and see what happens. but I'm not sure it will help your no start issue because if my memory serves correctly these trucks will start and run with the ICP unplugged. I'll opt out like the the others before me and keep following closely because I'm dying to know what you find on this thing. Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you! And for what it's worth here is a copy of the five page schematic for your instrumentation. If you'll look closely you"ll see that all of your related symptom areas are somehow connected. But I also believe they're all connected through the ignition switch and other computers like the BCM

I have a another shot in the dark for you here. Measure the voltage drop at the plastic case of your battery from just between the two terminals. A dirty battery (Even one that looks clean) Can discharge itself across it's own surface robbing other functions of the power they need.

You're already tried ignition relearn procedure right? And I also found this TSB for you although but it seems like a longshot unless the ignition switch had already been replaced.

Chevy Mechanic: Joe Prestia,
 replied 2 years ago

It seems nobody wants to help here. There's a couple things I'd like to know and one thing I'd like to tell you. One. Do we have injector pulse? You may need a noid light set (there are alternatives-i think a small bulb might work but do some research. I've always had the proper test set- and they can be cheap. You may have mentioned this, but ; Two. Do we have spark?

And for you to consider, I agree with Cam in getting it programmed. Call a different Chevy dealer and see if they can check the program in your bcm and update if need be. I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure they used these modules to manage trucks with different options packages.
