Sorry I do not work the morning shift, which is why I have not responded yet.

Do you have access to a scan tool that can perform the key reprogramming to see if this resolves the lock light coming on?

Will that same scan tool access the BCM to see if its getting the input from the brake switch when you want to shift from park?

GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 2 years ago

The brake light does work .what's happening the scan tool can't some modems like abs transfer case, doors.plus when I start truck,everything inside stop working cluster ,fan ,radio,
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 2 years ago

Lets go after the easiest of these current issues the radio to see why it fails once started. Hopefully that diag and repair address most or all of the issues. Do you know how to remove the radio and do you have something to test 12 volt circuits?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I checked no voltage with truck running . the radio does work not running with ignition on.the fan also, the instrument cluster does light up with ignition but the gages don't move from zero.but as soon as you start motor everything goes goes off
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 2 years ago

So once started the radio fuse no longer has power?
