It is a new style. It will not do any thing.whin i trun the key on i do not see the pic of the motor with the glowplug light

 

Check the fuses under the black cover beside the passengers side battery. It sounds like you have an open fuse. The ones labeled D or E go to the left fuse block and if the fuse is open, there will be nothing at all. Truck=paperweight.

Important: Dealers are to confirm vehicle eligibility prior to beginning repairs by using the system below. Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.

- GM dealers should use GMVIS.

 

 

For dealers with involved vehicles, a listing with involved vehicles containing the complete vehicle identification number, customer name, and address information has been prepared and will be provided through the applicable system listed below. Dealers will not have a report available if they have no involved vehicles currently assigned.

- US GM dealers - GM DealerWorld Recall Information

- Canadian GM dealers - GMinfoNet Recall Reports

- Export dealers - sent directly to dealers

The listing may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any purpose other than follow-up necessary to complete this program is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you are urged to limit the use of this report to the follow-up necessary to complete this program.

Calibration Information

Do not attempt to order the calibration number from GMSPO. The calibration numbers required for this service procedure are programmed into control modules via an MDI and Techline Tech 2® scan tool and TIS 2 WEB website with the following calibration updates:

2007-08 Chevrolet Silverado, Express; GMC Sierra, Savana: Use data version 5.5 for 2008 as of 05/12/08 or later, available on TIS 2 WEB; and on TIS DVD version 6.0 / 2008 or later, mailed to dealers beginning 06/04/08.

If you cannot access the calibration, call the Techline Customer Support Center and it will be provided.

Service Procedure

Program Engine Control Module

    Important: Verify that the 12 volt battery has a battery charge of 12 to 16 volts. The battery must be able to maintain a charge during programming. Only use approved Midtronics 165-PCS charger or equivalent to maintain proper battery voltage during programming.

  1. Refer to Service Programming System (SPS) in SI for programming procedures.
  2. Program the ECM with the latest calibration. This calibration, or any that follow, is designed to address VTD concerns. As always, make sure your Tech 2® is updated with the latest software version.
  3. Select the J2534 MDI and Reprogram the ECU from the Select Diagnostic Tool and Programming Process screen. The J2534 MDI will reprogram the modules in less time than the Tech 2® scan tool.

Additional Information for Vehicles currently experiencing this condition
