not really looking to know a fix as I know I will have to bring it into the dealership. Just wondering if anybody has ever ran into the same problem or heard of this issue?
So I'm driving home from work. Got the radio playing the iPod. All of a sudden radio turns off... hrrr? okay...? Hit the radio power button, nothing. About a minute later, still driving down the road, suddenly my gauge cluster resets. Now everything is at zero/turned off point. So I'm going down the road with everything off.
Now I get "services TPMS system", "service Airbag system", "service Traction control" and about 3-4 others on the cluster, but nothing else. GREAT!
I'm about 20 miles from home. So I pull into a parking lot. As I turn in. I notice my turn signal on my passenger rear view mirror isn't working. AWESOME. I hope my brake lights are working...
K turn in without getting rear ended or anything.
Turn off engine. Locks didn't open when I hit park(like they always do), gauge cluster still kept the backlighting on.
Tried the power locks to unlock. Nope nothing. Tried mirror controls, no response.
I pop the hood and disconnect the negative. Let it sit for a min, reconnect. truck fires right up and everything seem to be back to normal.
Continue back on the road. About 10 miles later, same thing happens again. I took the backway home, so I'm on empty roads alone. So I just figure I drive this all the way home. So gauges go out again along with the radio. So I said fuck it I'll get this thing home. About 5 minutes later they all come back on & its back to normal.
Then all of a sudden I got this voice "Thanks for calling onstar, this is Jennifer, how can I help you?"
I didn't even call onstar.
I had her ran a "diagnostic" anyways, which I knew would come back "okay" and it did.
So I got it parked at home okay. Gotta call dealership tomorrow. oh fun.
This isn't the first time this has happened btw(first time was just sitting in my garage). I disconnected the battery and it worked fine. This was like.. 5 months ago?
So... anybody ever ran into this before?
