2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 problems


Asked by Nov 06, 2016 at 02:16 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I
can crank it up but it shuts off immediately
afterwards. I've changed the fuel pump
and cleaned the filter screen inside. I've
also replaced the computer inside. Does
anyone know what it could be?

When you replaced the computer did you have it programmed to your truck using the vehicle identification number (VIN)? HTH. -Jim


No I just replaced the box. How do I put the (VIN) in? Someone told me I would have to take it to a Chevrolet and put in a security code.

That needs to be done with a scan tool or computer. Any reputable shop can do it for you. It will cost about $100 though. Unfortunately it's not something you can do yourself. HTH. -Jim
