well here I'll add one to your corner...
I drove the box truck today at work...it hasn't been driven in months so I went to check the fluids, everything looked great except the transmission dip stick lock was broke so I couldn't check the transmission fluid, next I went to check the tire pressure; the tires require 80 psi and my gauge only reads 60 psi...next I go fill it up at the gas station I make it there fill it up and go to start it up....it won't start! It's like the battery was dead. So I call in the office and have someone come out with a volt meter and jumper cables. When my tech was in sight, I tried to start the truck one last time...the [email protected] thing started. So I let him know and he leaves. I go to follow him out and the truck shut off...again no power WTF? So I call back into the office explained what just happend..and tell them to send the tech back...he left his cell at the office so I couldn't get ahold of him.
I go out and shake the battery terminals around..the truck starts. Well I made it back to the shop and cleaned the battery terminals...so I guess its fixed.

Next...I drove my own personal truck to work today...I haven't drove it in a few weeks because I have my firebird back. I used the truck to move over the weekend but that was only moving back and forth about 50 feet. I went to leave and the service engine soon indicator came on..>WTF! I only have 26k on my new truck...that light shouldn't be comming on! Now I need to see what's up with that....anymore vehicle problems today....

Nope that wasn't it. The gas cap was tight. I started the truck up and it starts and runs fine. However that icon of an engine still comes on. I checked the air filter also...that was on ok also. It could be anything with emissions...my 94 firebird with 240k on it that one comes on and off all the time...but I expect that one to with that much mileage but not a new truck.

Remember when you hit that trailer. Now your driving the Bird.
The truck is just jealous and wants attention.

you might be right. The car missed me so much when I moved to PA my dad started driving the bird everyday to keep the miles off his new cars and truck...then the bird had some issues...so he replaced the cat. converter, tires, power windows, oil pressure sensor, exhaust re-welds, brakes, rotors, rear hatch lifts.....
Mean while I was driving the truck for the past 6 months and had no problems...now that I have been driving the bird I've had no problems other than on cold morning the tranny waits to shift...but now the truck is jealous...WTF... how can I keep both happy at once.

SV..you want me to split this off...

But pull the battery + off for about 20 mins and put it back on... might clear it...at least for a bit..

But usually its some environmental crap!

ohhh I didn't realize you already made the split...but anyway I agree with jeeps...where this is a new truck I'd just rather get it fixed right for good while its still got 10k left on the factory warranty.. The bad part is I need to get the truck registered in PA this month and this stupid county does emissions testing therefore that light can't be on.

The car is still good until october of 06 being registered in ky...so I'm not worried about that one for now...for all I know the car won't make it until next october 240k on a GM is not normal
