Customer Question
my glow plugs about 500...
I have a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD Duramax 4x4. I changed all my glow plugs about 500 miles ago. I just tried starting it and it won't start. The glow plug light stays on for awhile then goes off, but won't start. Throws code P0661 glow plug one with open
circuit.I erase the pending code and then it shows code po667 glow plug 7 open circuit. I erase it and keeps going back and forth from 1 to 7. And still won't start.

I see, thanks.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

There has been a factory recall for that type of concern. It involves a software update for the vehicle’s computer and has to be done by a dealer, I hate to have to say.

Why would the problem show up now if it was a recall in 2006
GMC Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

That's just how electronics and computers are

GMC Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

If you don't think that it is a software problem then you would most likely have to replace the PCM but the dealer would flash it for free.

ok, I will contact the dealer.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just don't see how it the problem would show up now.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I called the dealer and gave them my vin. He said I had brought the vehicle in back in 2006. And they corrected the recall.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If I change the glow plug controller, does it have to flashed or programed.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not going to rate you till my questions are answered.
GMC Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I see, thanks. It seems that the controller is bad. If a new glow plug control module is installed, they will have to program the module. Thanks

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is the controller and module the same or two different things.
GMC Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Glow plug control module. It is a module that controls the glow plugs, the name sort of gives it away. Thanks and Happy Holidays to you.
