Those silverados are really sweet rides but when that check engine light comes on you better have it checked by a shop w/ all the right stuff; sorry, but those lights don't come on for frivolous reasons and did you know a used car dealer will not buy any vehicle that displays a check engine light? This can result from lack of regular maintenance checkups that would replace oil at so many miles, etc. very important to do; u gonna need a pro, sorry and best results for you

That is what is weird I have this truck serviced like clock work if there is an issue of any kind I have it fixed asap. But to have it think the truck fell of a scrap truck ?? Am betting the Processor or PC has taken a crap.... But want it fixed .............
