Contacted gm, on June 7, 2014 after getting the car back from the dealership, to help with the replacement costs and got no help whatsoever due to age of vehicle with less than 100,000 miles. It sometimes requires pulling off the road and coming to a complete stop before the transmission will re-engage. Nobody wants to hear about your problems. I have researched and come across information that the water pump is the likely culprit, and that the fan is blowing the leaking coolant around the engine and it'll end up exactly where I've described. Any help or ideas would be appreciated! It's definitely not coming from the firewall. This movement may result in the fatigue and separation of the cable. When I look up under the dash I can see that water has dropped on everything but can't find the source.
The recall began on May 19, 2014. Everything from the dash up is completely dry. I hope Chevy takes care of this problem. I suggest everyone with a nbs to check theirs i was surprised. They wouldn't make much profit but, they would certainly do what is is Right! But did you ever find out your issue? Water isn't supposed too make it under there. The cardboard will also help direct you if it makes it past the fan.
I drove home and took out the rubber floor mat so i didnt trap any additional moisture. If you have a sun roof, then that is a prime culprit. Do u like around a bunch of trees sometimes trash can get through the wiper cowl and stop the drain holes up and then it comes in the truck. I removed both pilar handles and nothing was wet. It might come down to having someone spray the truck while you are inside looking for leaks.
Sounds like you may be on the right track. I think it's coming from the firewall, but to tear that thick black plastic out i'll have to remove the dash. I thought it may be from the high pressure car wash were the blast the sides with water. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. I spoke with a few people and they advised to attempt re-charging the free-on that worked for one day.
Unfortunately there are plenty of troubleshooting and repair videos on the internet. I had my rear window re-sealed before I figured out 2 seconds with some clear silicone fixed it. This time, my pedal adjustment motor shorted out. They just can't see how angry I am with this cheap and worthless crap they sell to hard working people. Took him a while to find it but once he had windshield re sealed, never had no more problems with a wet floor board.
Gm is aware of this problem and needs to take responsibility for the repairs associated with this defect. I was over my warranty and had to pay. My bet is on the windshield but the dealership has had it all day. Now dealership filled with with water and not coolant. Even tried pouring water by the wipers and could not get it to leak. Afterwards I would also use some Lysol to clean your system.
During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash. My advice to anyone with any kind of issue, especially water intrusion, document every single thing. I do have a power cable drilled through my firewall but I have a grommet and it siliconed off, plus it's not specific to when it rains. I wish I could tell the world this bad news for all who are thinking about these trucks and cars from Chevy. I analyzed the failure and have a corrective fix.
Please or to join the conversation. I can tell you what I told him. It seems as though the dealer had an advisory on the problem. I have a 2016 crew cab Silverado ltz z71. The worse part is that Chevy knows it used defective parts, but doesn't apparently give a damn that it's caused an expensive fix to their customers. He doesn't have a air hose and can't make it to my place to have me fix it. I'm ditching this bitch and buying another brand of vehicle.
Diagnosis- possible head gasket covered under warranty. I had purchased a paint warranty from the dealership, but they do not have the paperwork, and never gave me any. I was driving my 2014 1500 today and water started leaking through the pivot point of the driver side sun visor. It started just in the passenger side and then progressed over. Again here it is 5 days later and no ac, just warm air. Happy hunting owe also this will let you know if you pulled a me and over flow the coolant through the reservoir overflow and then wonder why there was coolant everywhere. Help me out with your knowledge.
It was leaking at the top of the windshield and then travelling down the A pillar and then through the dash onto the floor. Old thread, but sometimes it is the actual weather strip around the door. When checking things out tonight, it started raining again so I had to stop my efforts short. And as mentioned, there are other sources of leaks, like faulty windshield seals, which again can be tied to lousy workmanship and insufficient quality control. So I thought I needed a new one. When my truck is parked in driveway over night and it rains water is leaking from headliner by rear window up top.
