Ask Your Own Chevy Question

How many miles are on vehicle?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
17000

17k or 170k? I'm assuming it is 170k

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

If it is under 150k then dealership will replace for free. If it is over 150k then yes a used one will work fine but it will need to be reprogrammed by dealer after being installed. Considering how common this problem is on these vehicles I'd consider buying part new. I'd also make sure you are replacing both the module and the motor. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions, thanks.
