I WAS DRIVING MY 2009 CHEVROLET SILVERADO ONE MORNING ON MY WAY TO SCHOOL(LUCKILY I WASN'T TO FAR FROM HOME WHEN THE INCIDENT OCCURRED) WHEN THE VEHICLE LOST POWER AND THE DASH SHOWED THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, SERVICE STABLETRAK, AND SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL. WHEN THE INCIDENT OCCURRED I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD WHEN MY VEHICLE BEGAN TO DECELERATE AND EVENTUALLY WAS NOT ABLE TO GO PAST 45 MPH. I PULLED OVER AND MY VEHICLE AND PARKED, SHUT OFF THE ENGINE, AND THEN STARTED IT BACK UP ONLY TO SHOW THE SAME ICONS ON THE DASH. AFTER TURNING AROUND AND SLOWLY RETURNING TO MY HOUSE I SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF AND HAD TO TAKE MY WIFE'S CAR TO WORK. UNDER OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES THIS COULD HAVE GONE EXTREMELY BAD AND AN ACCIDENT MAY HAVE OCCURRED. THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON TREND ON THE INTERNET AND FORUMS AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY GM!

THE FIRST INCIDENT WAS IN JANUARY 2014 WHILE TRAVELING ON THE HIGHWAY AT 55 MPH THE DOOR LOCKS STARTED TO CYCLE RAPIDLY, THE GAUGES ALL WENT TO ZERO, THE AIRBAG REDINESS LIGHT CAME ON AND A SERVICE STABILITRAC MESSAGE APPEARED. THE NEXT DAY THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT START, AFTER MOVING THE POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL COVER TO TRY AND JUMP THE BATTERY ALL THE LIGHTS CAME ON AND THE VEHICLE STARTED WITHOUT NEEDING TO BE JUMPED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER AND THEY CHECKED EVERYTHING AND FOUND NOTHING WRONG. NO CODES WERE STORED. THEY INSPECTED THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BLOCK AND THE BATTERY PIN TENSION, BOTH WERE GOOD. THE VEHICLE HAS RUN FINE WITH NO PROBLEMS UNTIL NOVEMBER 2014, NOW IT HAS STARTED DOING THE EXACT SAME THING AS IT WAS DOING IN JANUARY. I WILL BE CONTACTING MY LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALER AND THE CHEVROLET REGIONAL MANAGER AGAIN. ALSO IT SEEMS VERY UNUSUAL THAT THE DEALER AND THE REGIONAL MANAGER HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS PROBLEM. THE CHEVROLET FORUMS ARE FULL OF PEOPLE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES, ALSO THERE IS A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM.

SERVICE BRAKES

11/9/2014 - MINERAL WELLS, WV
I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM OCCASIONALLY SINCE I BOUGHT THE TRUCK NEW, BUT RECENTLY IT STARTED TO DO THE SAME THING ON A REGULAR BASIS. START THE TRUCK AND IT'S FINE, BUT GO TO SHIFT INTO GEAR AND THE SERVICE ENGINE, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL, AND SERVICE ABS LIGHTS AND MESSAGES COME ON THE DASH. TODAY, I PRESSED THE BRAKES WHILE DRIVING IT AND HEARD A CLICK WHEN I DID SO, SO I PULLED OVER AND CHECKED AND FOUND THAT IF I PUSH MY BRAKE PEDAL VERY FAR, MY BRAKE LIGHTS WENT OUT. I JUST HAD MY VEHICLE SERVICED AND INSPECTED AT THE GM DEALERSHIP ABOUT 9 MONTHS/5,000 MILES AGO. HOPEFULLY THIS TRUCK DOESN'T GET ME OR MY WIFE INTO A FATAL ACCIDENT...
