    Weird battery drain.

    I think you can pull the fuse, but I wanted to be sure it was completely disconnected, but if you know you have a bad cluster that the first place to start. If you read my other thread about reduce power problems I'm having as, I'm going to be doing the Big 3 also and adding more ground straps. This spring I will clean and recoat all my ground connections.

    Shawn, mine did something similar, I did the same and pulled the radio fuse and it seemed that was the problem, then it came back and it is probably in the cluster, take apart the dash and unplug the cluster for a few days to see it goes away. If it does you will need your cluster rebuilt. I had gmgaugeguy.com rebuild mine and now no problems. I've read all kind of threads on here and the other truck forums and that seem like the more likely suspect. Clay

    Reduce Engine Power Warning.

    So after this happen I've clean off the grounding connection up under the headlights, and the motor to firewall, and the code has not come back but when I let my truck sit for a few days and I start it up the cluster is in the other languages, and I have to reset it. For the last month its been wet and probably condensation on connections. This spring I will add other ground connections and check the throttle connection.
  9. Ok I had this happen, I have read alot of threads on this. Mine happen on when the weather changed and a lot of condensation was in the air. i tighten and checked all the grounds. Our trucks are getting old and more corrosion on the ground connections are happening so we need to keep them clean. Got the code of P1516 and reset it and it hasn't come back. My truck sat for about 4 days when this happen and since that I have been starting and running it for a 5 minutes everyday or every other day and no it won't repeat itself. Anyway I am monitoring it weekly. Here is a good article if you have the problem. https://www.fixmyoldride.com/Chevrolet-reduced-engine-power.html

    E fan swap questions

    I have 2 Silverados one an SS and the other a shortbox clone with the 6.0 motor also, both programed. The Silverado SS extended cab the fans hardly come on, the short box comes on most of the time if I let it sit for a while but not driving. I think mine start up at about 210 degrees.
  11. If you have the door panels, switches and all the wiring harness if should be plug and play, your fuse box will have the slots for the wiring harness.

    Traded in the SS

    Mine is just starting on the clear coat peel. I waxed it really good to make it through the winter. Yes I did a street racing in my time also and I look back that nothing bad happen. The Charger will have a 440 4 speed when I'm done. I ask around on the wheel.

    Traded in the SS

    Ray, It been a long ride, sad to see the truck go, both of us have been here since 2003, I'm too attached to mine with 137,000 on the clock plus the short box is done but needs a decent paint job, I might sell it if I can get a decent offer on it. I have 2 Mopars, one is a complete 68 Roadrunner and a 68 Charger I am just getting ready to start on the sheet metal repair, should keep me busy for the next couple of years.
