I would think that the bearings are going out in your blower motor. This motor runs any time the switch is on and as the bearing warms up the noise may go away but it will gradually get worse. I hope this helps you. Mark i bet its the blower vent door. try moving the lever to open and close it repeatedly before you start up the next time. tweek

I had a similar problem. My solution was to replace the distributor's stator - part of the breakerless ignition. My stator's plastic housing had cracked which caused an intermitant shorting of the ignition system.

turn ignition on then after 30 seconds insert additional key into door lock. Push key lock or unlock button and a few seconds, repeat. Turn off ignition.

Put some gas in the tank then cycle the ignition key on and off pausing a few seconds in the on position. Do this 3-4 times and you have primed the fuel system. Start the engine and go.

The manual says: 1. Turn ignition key to RUN with engine off. 2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the OIL LIFE RESET message flashes for 10 seconds, the system is resetting. 3. Turn the key to LOCK.

You can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by performing the following procedure: # Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank(s) to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code # Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key. # Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key. # Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime will sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off. The new Sentry key has been programmed. Repeat this procedure to program up to a total of 8 keys. If you do not have a programmed sentry key, contact your dealer for information.

No. The fuel pump should run for 2 seconds when the key is cycled from off to run, regardless of whether there is a problem in the ignition system or not.

Disconnect the negative on the battery terminal for 15 seconds.

Switch the ignition without starting the car to "drive-mode" (number 2) and hold down the trip-button for a few seconds, turn of the ignition and wait for a few seconds and it will be gone.

Get under the vehicle and look up into the bumper where the housing is located. Squeeze the tabs and push the housing out of the bumper. It takes about 10 seconds.

Your problem is the chip in the key or the ignition. Try your other key before doing anything else.

hi there you can reset the oil light by turning the key on and engine off, and fully press the gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds then start the truck and the oil light should flash, if it dont work try it all over again or look in your owners manual under reset oil light. instead of turning on ignition and pressing gas pedal three times try turning on ignition and pressing the brake pedal three times it worked on my 2001 silverado !

Turn your ignition switch to the auxiliary position, without starting the engine. Leave the ignition switch in the auxiliary position for 30 seconds.

A. Here you go;1. Turn the ignition switch on - between one and four seconds and press the trunk "Pop-Up" button on the transmitter while aiming the transmitter at the trunk. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch off. Note: keep the timing between one and four seconds, too fast or too slow will cause the control unit to lose the stored codes.2. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch on. Between one and four seconds, press the trunk " Pop-Up " button on the transmitter while aiming the transmitter at the trunk. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch off.3. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch on. Between one and four seconds, press the trunk " Pop-Up " button on the original transmitter while aiming the transmitter at the trunk. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch off.4. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch on. Between one and four seconds, press the trunk " Pop-Up " button on the original transmitter while aiming the transmitter at the trunk. Leave the ignition switch on.5. Within 15 seconds, aim the transmitter (up to three) whose codes you want to store at the trunk and press the " Pop-Up " button once on each transmitter.6. Between one and four seconds, turn the ignition switch off.7. Confirm proper operation with the new code(s).NOTE:"press the trunk Pop-Up button" means to press this button and holdit until the little light on the transmitter comes on. You can use the same procedure with the Honda CRV remote as well (1997-99 models, not sure about later ones). Make sure the remote has FCC ID E4EG8DJ on the back.

Turn ignition on... depress gas pedal to floor three times in ten seconds. Turn ignition off then on. Knock on windshield four times and turn ignition off again.

If your 2004 Silverado starts and runs for 5 to 8 seconds and then dies, you might have a bad fuel pump or clogged injectors. You could also have an issue with the distributor.

Ignition takes about 30 seconds worth of idling fuel
