Customer Question
2008 silverado 2500 HD...

2008 silverado 2500 HD. Cruise control occasionally shuts off. Clock loses power and goes to 12:00. Tonight pressed set on cruise control and truck briefly cut out, rear tires started skidding probably because trans shifted to a lower gear.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Not consistant at all. Before this happened tonight, radio speakers were cutting in and out and speedometer was fluctuating when i was going 60mph. Pressed set on cruise and everything briefly cutout.

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

Replaced entire fuse block under hood and the problem seemed to be gone for several months. Now is back.

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

Putting lights to bright caused the truck to cutout several months ago before fuse block was replaced.

If i remember the sequence correctly, i was driving one day with cruise on, turned signal on to switch lanes, and the cruise shut off. I think that has happened several times.

  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

Are you noticing the speedometer reading incorrect?

I think the speedometer is correct, although it was bouncing a little at the same time the radio speakers were cutting in and out.
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

Sorry, I just noticed you did not mention the engine you have so I can look over the correct diagrams.

Engine is 6.0
If i am going to get one response a day in the middle of the night, this will never get fixed.
If thats how it going to be, can i get a full refund and just end this?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

I will opt out and let another help.

now what? Is someone else going to contact me?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

If someone else feels they can help they will reply. If and or when I cannot answer that. It seemed you were not going to be pleased with me, so I opted out to let another take over this tough to diagnose concern. Best of Luck.

I have a truck that needs to be fixed, and one response a day isn't going to get anything done anytime soon. How do i get a refund for what i was charged? If you cant answer that, who do i contact about a refund?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago
