Well after owning my '02 Z71 for 5 months I finally had a problem. I tried to look through the posts to see if this has been covered but do not see anything. This afternoon while pulling into my parking garage at work the battery light came on along with the air bag light. Shortly after all of the lights went off and the truck died. I tried to restart it, all it would do is turn over and die. I could hold the gas down and it would run but kept dying if I took my foot out of it. The lights would come on when it tried to start but then after about 5 tries no lights nothing. I tried it again then the lights for the push button 4X4 came on but no dash lights. I opened the hood checked the battery but everything was fine (green light). We pushed the truck into a spot and let it sit for about 2 min and it started right up but the radio presets had been blanked as if the battery failed. I left work, took it to the dealer who currently has it and now I have no problem . It drove perfect all the way and even when they put it in the shop. The diag showed and air bag alarm and 2 others that I cannot remember. I have a friend who is the mechanic so he wanted to look it over better tomorrow to be sure its isolated and also take care of other warrenty issues I have. Has anyone else had this experience? Someone said vapor lock but as I understand it thats almost impossable with fuel injected vehicles Hopefully they get me my Avy back tomorrow I can't handle another day this rental Cavalier!!
