Our son (AVtailgater)and his wife broke down at the Nationals. They were not in a Avalanche but had a diesel VW. It made it down over 600 miles just fine but when they tried to start it later that evening to drive to dinner it would only run for a couple of seconds and "shut off" Between several members and the help from GOOGLE I took my son to order the part and he got it running. Happy to report that they made it home with no issues! The problem ended up being a bad relay that controls the ecm.

Again thank you whether you turned a wrench, hook up your electrical tester or provided advice you helped get him going and saved us from having to tow him 600 miles!

I'm glad it was just the relay and they were able to get him up and running again.
