Chevrolet Silverado owners have reported 13 problems related to horn assembly (under the electrical system category).
When the outside air temperature gets approximately 75 degrees, especially over 85 degrees, the vehicle's horn will not operate. It has been a problem since the vehicle was delivered new. It has been to the dealer for repair 3 times. Each time it is claimed to have been fixed. Yet, once the outside temp goes up the horn will not work. After some time while driving it may operate intermittently. It is a serious hazard since, during warm weather, it is likely to not work in an emergency. On at least 5 occasions it failed during an emergency when I tried to use the horn. I registered a complaint with general motors (file no 1-413956517) but they have been non-responsive.

Extended stopping distance when applying the brakes, the pedal feels spongy. Dealer stated that there was nothing he could do. Brake pedal goes to the floor and the front brakes will not lock up even if the abs is disconnected. The trucks frame is so thin that the whole truck vibrates when taking off. Consumer states that the horn button has to be pivotted up and the steering wheel has to be at twelve oclock in order for the horn to sound, heat shields rattle under vehicle when traveling over bumps, dealer made adjustments.

I am writing to seek some assistance with an inferior product produced by gm. I have a chevy 2000 Silverado z71 pick up that has piston slap starting at around 15k miles and progressively worsened which the dealer states is normal wear. This expensive vehicle also has a rear end bang into drive and then reverse again the dealer states is normal. Recently I fixed a snapped cable for the drivers window which the same kind of cable was recalled for the tail gate cables. I have replaced recall items for the tail gate cables, drive shaft yolk and the abs sensors to which it is still not functioning properly. All of which when presented to the dealer and the response was it is normal, until the recall occurred. It seems the policy of a company which creates an inferior product is to state, "it is normal" to the consumer until the government steps when enough people complain and makes the dealer own up to the problems with the products and finally treats the consumer with more compassion, and to some degree "decency". With the many problems with this vehicle the government needs to step in and help the consumer with the dealership resistance to fix the problems caused by more concern for profit than quality.
Consumer's brakes lock up & sometimes there's a jerking motion. Also, horn when it's cold comes on by itself. Dealer will be notified of the problems. More information will be added by consumer.

When applying brakes at any speed brake pedal goes down more than it should, it feels spongy, and braking distance is extended. Dealer has replaced front and rear rotors 3 times. Once due to rust, other times dealer did not know what else to do. Front and rear pads were replaced twice. Consumer states there is a noise in the steering, also seat belt was hanging up, the underhood lamp was inoperative, an horn acting erractically.
Horn is extremely hard to push. Took to dealer, and they said it was normal. Consumer took a scale to measure how much pressure it took to blow this horn, and answer was 22 pounds.
Consumer notices excessive wear of the front brake pads and rotors. There is no prior warning indicating the brakes needed replacing. Also, consumer is having problems with the horn assembly, the horn is inoperative. Consumer has contacted the dealer. Please provide any further details.
