Remote Start / Brake Controller Problems
Well, here's my first real post. And like the other boards I'm on for my K5 and previously my Harley, it begins with a problem!
Remote start first... Finally replaced my spark plugs last night after 170000km. Little bit of a pain in the a$$ having to pull the brake cylinder and boost off, but not really too bad. Anyway, everything's running great, but for whatever reason my remote start isn't going now. When I hit the button I get the single flash like the tank's low, door's open, or whatever other problems disable the remote start. However, full tank, doors and hood are closed, etc. The only thing I'm thinking now that I'm typing this is that my hood sensor might be askew. Plugs mean I was leaning over the quarter and climbing all over the damn thing, so that might be out. Anything else I might be missing?
The other is the brake controller. I've had to have this module replaced before after getting lights for ESP off (graphic in bottom right), and alternating ESP/BAS (still no idea what BAS means) and Service 4x4 messages on the EVIC. What happened before was I would get these errors pop up from time to time randomly and they'd eventually clear. When it went on and stayed on I took it in to the dealer and they changed the controller out which of course isn't part of the drivetrain warranty. $400 later seemed to fix the problem. Last night after the plug change it started up again, and of course during a pretty good snow storm that's still going today. Goes on, then it's off when I start the truck again, but will pop up again seemingly randomly while driving. I'm HOPING this controller's not gone again, and no idea why I would have gone through two of these over the last 5 years. NOTHING else on the truck has had any problem, I'll be pissed if I've got yet another dud.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
