Ya, I seen that post. C@@L idea but I do have my side bags full of stuff and I still have a bumper to bumper on my 13 and that may be good enough reason to deny a bad compressor.
It's under warranty? I withdraw all previous statements, drive to the dealer.  :thumbsup:

New to the forum.

04 Avy 4x4/5.3L/1500

I am trying to see if ANYONE has done away with the need for the Transfer Case push button tree and TCCM. I am looking specifically to find out if there is someone who has bypassed these two mode selection PITA's, and figured out a way to cross wires, apply voltage to, or whatever.....to be able to engage the transfer case manually. I have the front actuator part figured out, I believe(how to engage/disengage manually)but clarification never hurts....for sure!

Hopefully someone has figured out how to do this, and can share the process and procedure.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance! Happy Avy owner here! Help me use the ole girls potential...

My 230 pounds is enough to set off the compressor, so I'm sure your test weight is also plenty.

There is a member here that had moved his air compressor into the driver's side saddle bag for better protection.

I'm not sure if he is still active, but a search of the forum might yield some results for the project.

This morning when temp outside was 45 degrees there was no ticking.  I think that the oil was thicker due to the temp so probably pumped up the failing lifter.
So the question is has anyone used 10-30 oil instead of the recommended 5-30 oil?
I did buy the 4 cyl eliminator plug in and intend to use it from now on.

Alright lets see if I can describe this issue..I started up the 2008 Avalanche taking note that the battery seemed weak after not starting it for 2 weeks and proceeded to load the trash bags in the back and the dog in the back seat.
So i get in and check the voltage gauge "no reading" not only on this one but none of them Tach, Fuel, oil pressure... so I put it in drive and park it in front of the garage door and slightly rev the engine still no gauge movement...so I shut off the truck oop's I guess because now I have no power to the starter, the signal's the emergency flashers, the gauge's, the door lock's, the headlight's, the dome lights, ... however my radio and my fan motor, the low fuel light, power window's and the DIC is telling me about the Stabilitrac and other input's.
so I put my battery charger on and let it run it's course til the full indicator in on the charger, still the same at the control cockpit "nothing"
 I've checked fuses including the 70 amp link and even done the jumper wire to engage the starter with no luck of it starting...it has no engine lock code illuminated except for when you first turn the key to the on position and then disappear's...
any suggestion into what direction i should go from here is appreciated.
Thank you in advance

Test for power and ground at the compressor. Does your volt meter have a max value setting? Might be helpful as the power may be supplied momentarily and shut itself off quickly when the compressor doesn't start up.

Also, can the compressor be manually tested, as in supply 12v direct from the battery or some other 12v source? Let me know if you get this far, might be able to dig up wiring pinouts for that connector.

I do have a jump box that I could use as a temporary power source. I may look into this over the weekend if I can get it back into the heated shop.
