    Default Newbie from Lawrenceville GA

    Hi, my name is Suzanne, and my awesome brother gave me his 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500

    I work from home and am an online marketer Before I forget if anyone lives in Alabama, Louisana and states that were affected by BP oil spill, and this includes both residential and business all over the affected states, then please contact me, as you might be entitled to a sizeable chunk of money from BP if you qualify.

    I just drove it back all the way from Canada with the truck it having 331280 KM on it.
    It ran great all the way here, but a couple of things happened and now it is time to slowly fix it back up.... not that it needs much. Anyways, I have a check engine light and had it assessed and it they say it is the Cat converter. Does this model have a PC valve? as it might be that as well. I also will change out the O2 censor. Does anyone know where is the best place to get the catalytic converter and what model I will need? It will also need something reworked for the towhaul switch, not sure what that is all about!

    My goal is to make sure that all the mechanics work great on it before attacking the paint chips and few surface rust spots.

    Oh nearly forgot, the airbag indicator light is on as well ... not sure what that is all about

    Thank you all for your advice

    Welcome to the Site Suzanne.....


    Regarding....."need something reworked for the towhaul switch".....I'm guessing its not Working, when you push the Button??......What's most likely happened is the Wire that is inside the Tow Haul Button, that runs down the Shifter and then down the Steering Column, to its Base, has Overtime gotten Pinched and/or Frayed, and has Broke.

    Here's a Picture of where the Wire is located, at the base of the Steering Column,


    To fix it.....you located the break in the Wire, and you can either, Crimp Splice or Solder it back together and you should be good to go.

    Hi Enkeiavalanche, great, do you have a name and a phone number for your friend who owns the custom shops? does he work on Chevy's?

    - - - Updated - - -

    your truck looks like mine, except I have grey for the bumper/grill insert and the trim, which I was thinking of going all one color. Where would I find the white front bumper or is that painted with a special paint?

    very nice indeed

    Thank you ChevyBoy2009
