GMC Sierra 1500 owners have reported 4 problems related to battery dead (under the electrical system category).
Has had an issue with accessories flashing off and back on. Reported it to a GMC dealer and they were unable to duplicate but said that the battery was bad and most likely what was causing it. It did fine for a while then began doing it again. This time however it caused a loss in power steering and I ended up in the ditch. Later it did it in a parking lot and was able to video tape it. Took it to the dealer and showed them the video. They were unable to duplicate for 4 days while I was paying for a rental because mine wasn't safe to drive. On the fourth day I provided them with a service bulletin I found that addressed the issue as being a fluctuation in power and for them to check the cables and do a drop load test. They did and it failed. I then had to pay 376. 00 to replace them plus having to pay for a rental after asking for a loaner. This is a problem a lot of people are having. Just a quick google search makes that plain. Gm isn't wanting to admit it. I have the video but I don't think it will allow me to upload it to the form.

I have a 2007 sierra,which has been giving me problems since it was pur chased. It has stop in the middle of the traffic when I was driving. It has done this 4 times since I purchased the vehicle. I have taking the vehicle to the dealer, but, they never find anything wrong. On Saturday the car stop , in the middle of traffic, and this time it did not move at all. The truck would not move, and I was trying to make a right, but I was stuck. I was worried that someone could crush from the back, because they could not pass, there was a man that came and push my truck to get out of the street . And now I am concerned for the safety of my daughter and me. This vehicle has giving me many problems, but the dealer never seems to find anything wrong with the vehicle. I had some items installed by them. One was a dvd player, it cost 2,300. And they said that it was my fault so they did not fix it. And that was 3 moths after the installation of the dvd by them. And the battery die on the truck 4 months after it was purchased. That was the only thing they change. I hope that I can be helped, I feel very insecure in this vehicle. I'm happy that I did not get into a major accident because of all these problems. Thank you .

Received letter from GMC about cluster panel gauges sticking or fluttering. I did not
have any problems at that time and mileage was over the 70,000 stated in letter. Later the oil gauge started fluttering and battery gauge registers battery as dead. Contacted GMC on 1/17/08, was told the instrument panel had be diagnosed by certified GMC service personal. I was given a reference number to use when contacting GMC. I had hpr automotive in sulllivan,IL. Diagnose the panel. -cost $85. Diagnosis was cluster panel defective. GMC contacted hpr to verify panel was defective. The cost would be $600 plus for the repair. After several conversations with two GMC service representatives . I was told on 2/29/08 by a third representative that GMC would not cover the panel replacement. I have read several forums on the defective cluster panel. Most state GMC refused the repairs, others state dealership where vehicle was purchased did repair for no cost even though the mileage was over 70,000. I feel that GMC should be held accountable for the defective part no matter what the mileage is, since they state in writing they know the part is defective, thanks m. G.
