Four problems related to battery have been reported for the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. The most recently reported issues are listed below.
: the contact stated the positive post on the battery fractured causing acid to leak onto the vehicle and the driveway. The contact replaced the battery. The dealer has been alerted.
Ac delco side mount maintenance free battery positive terminal leaked acid into the battery tray causing minor burn on hands when I unknowingly placed my hands into area to remove battery. Battery acid has also leaked onto my front brake system. Of which could caused future problems with stopping.
While driving check engine and the battery light appeared on the dashboard and remained on. Then, vehicle stalled. Consumer tried to restart vehicle, but a mile down the highway, vehicle stalled for the second time. Consumer had the vehicle towed to the dealer for inspection, but mechanic could not duplicate the problem.
The ac delco battery leaked acid which dripped onto the front left brake line. I noticed this before it corroded the brake line and caused a crash. This has been happening to many vehicles with the ac delco battery. I ask you to investigate this before it kills hundreds of people. This should be a recall.
