Re: [RC] Chevy Silverado diesel truck owners... - Mike Lewis

My '06 Ram 3500 is the same way.  If the Chevy trucks are anything like my Dodge, the WTS light won't come on unless the temp is cold enough.
On my old '91 F-350 on the other hand... the WTS light loved to come on when it was even slightly cool outside...
Heheheheh.  In response to your post, I'll keep my comments on the Big 3 to myself... other than to say I'm not driving a Ford or Chevy/GMC.  :-)  Enjoy your truck!  The new technology, starting with the Duramax and newer 7.3L and 5.9L engines from Ford/IH and Dodge/Cummins, is so much better than even a few years ago.

Subject: [RC] Chevy Silverado diesel truck owners...

This past weekend I because the new owner of a 2001 Silverado 3500 4x4 with 47K miles on it (NEW TOY!!).  Being a Ram owner for the last 8 years I'm unfamiliar with Silverado's and was wondering about starting the engine.  The 'Wait to Start' light does not turn on when I turn the engine to start.  With the Ram the "wait" light would turn on for a few seconds.  Dealer said this was normal for Silverado diesel engines because they are SO much more superior to Fords and Dodges.  :P

Do I need to bring the truck in to check out why the light doesn't turn on?

Just for s's and giggles.. :)  http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2005/1805591442_3ee7e6d2e1_o.jpg
