My 2005 Silverado is blowing a fuse in the airbags over and over again. Has anyone had this problem?

I have a 2006 Silverado 1500 Z71. Has anyone had a problem with a transmission whine? I love my truck, but the dealer keeps telling me it is a normal noise, I test drove a new one of the line and the noise isn't present in those, just mine I guess.

I have an '04 Silverado and have had no sounds coming from my transmission. From what I know Chevy trucks rarely have any transmission problems. I have also had a 2000 Silverado 2wd and I thought for sure I would burn up the tranny in the Iowa winter snow storms. For 2 years I endured Iowa snow storms with that 2000 2wd Silverado. Finally I got rid of it because it stranded me too many times in the snow. I got a $65 tow/recovery bill to pull the front wheels back over the lip of an asphalt parking lot! But I have learned my lesson and bought an '04 Silverado Z71 which gets around much, much better in winter.

I have a 2005 silverado LS, the wipers only work on the high speed setting, any ideas on what could be the problem?

Hi everyone. First to say I LOVE my 05 2500 HD, it is the most basic model you can buy, OK it has A/C, but other than that, I was wondering if anybody else was having electrical problems with their trucks? My lights randomly turn on and off daily and the dealership could not tell me why, this has been going on since I bought it, also my cruise control shorts out? But if you are looking to buy this truck, it is GREAT for hauling, pulls my 27' steel stock trailer fully loaded with horses no prob! Thanks!!

I purchased a 2005 Silverado LS X-Tend Cab. I have approximately 75000 km. I find it sporty and fun to drive, and it looks great. Fuel mileage seems to average 24 miles on the highway and the 4.8 litre seems to deliver plenty of power. I upgraded rims & tires to suit my needs. Overall a great truck and has met all my expectations except I am a bit disappointed with the wind whistle I get from the windows, has anyone else had this problem ?

Buy a Dodge... I was a Chevy/Ford man until these problems on these trucks got worse, and Dodges were getting better! These 09 Dodge Rams - no one can compare at all, look under the the cab of each truck at the frame!!! Then take a look at the lifetime powertrain warranty. Tell me what you think? Oh and the why auto companies rate their tow ratings high? Is it rare for someone to row even 11,000 lbs!!!

I have a 2005 2500HD crew cab with the 6.0 gas engine. When you go somewhere in it, sometimes it will not start back up. I think it is the ECM computer, has anyone else had this problem.

I own a 2005 Chevy 2500 Duramax Diesel. This truck is FANTASTIC! Other than its MAJOR electrical issues!

The speedomotor randomly went out at 89K ($450 to fix), the A/C blows cold sometimes, and other times it blows hot and I have to restart the truck. This happened at 58K miles ($1200 to fix), and now the #5 on the A/C knob does not work (haven't fixed yet)..

These trucks will be great when Chevy finally recalls all their electrical issues!

Good luck!
