Customer Question
2005 Chevy 2500HD with...

2005 Chevy 2500HD with 8.1 Vortec and Allison trans. When to start truck doors won't unlock with keyfob. Get in truck starts fine, no gauges, abs light on battery light on. turn truck off, start truck again, same problem. Start third time, engine starts, almost stalls and then continues to run. All other issues, no gauges etc, still there.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Just ABS light.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 Chevy?

C2500

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried anything so far, just been searching the net for clues.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it, I guess. Hoping for easy, inexpensive, and something I can hopefully fix myself.

There is a good chance that it is a fuse

I need to check each fuse?
Chevy Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,
 replied 11 months ago

You should check ones that are related to your problem. For instance, check the 10 amp fuse for "IGN 3"

check all the fuses for the door lock actuators and body control module, etc...
