      Several possibilities; faulty daytime running light relay, faulty daytime running light control module, fault in the wiring or connections common to the DRL circuit.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities. In fact they, (RockAuto) list the DRL relay from around $8.50, and the DRL control module from around $33.00 for your vehicle.

      Check and / or replace these items as possibilities; fuel guage fuse, faulty fuel level sensor (as component of the entire fuel pump).
      It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Generally recommended to have the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

      The new fuel level sensor costs around $22.00, and the new fuel pump assembly costs from around $83.00 to over$269.00 for your vehicle - from these on-line auto parts sources; www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities

    Climate Control unit not working
    Air flow is stuck on defrost and will not go to AC or vent so air only blows thru defrosters

      Most likely the issue is a faulty blend door actuator. Easily replaced - located just next to the heater blower motor under the instrument panel.

      There are two separate actuators in your truck. One is a blend door actuator and the other is a mode door actuator. The BDA only controls the temperature of the air and is unrelated to which place the air blows out of. The MODE door actuator is responsible for where the air blows from. That is what needs to be replaced.

    FRONT BLOWER STOPPED WORKING
    STOPPED WITHOUT WARNING,ALL FUSES ARE GOOD

      Check for battery voltage and ground at the blower motor directly with the key on and the blower turned on. If there is no power or both terminals have battery voltage and no ground, replace the blower resistor. If any connectors at the resistor or blower motor are burned or scorched replace the connector and lead wires. You can buy just the connector and wires, its called a pigtail. If the motor has battery voltage and ground then the blower motor is junk.

    Heater will not turn off
    will not shut off with selector or key off or key removed.This happened 2 weeks ago and it killed my battery Recharged battery and problem was gone. Today it happened again. I removed the 30 amp front H VAC fuse and it shut off What could the problem BE ????????

      There is another fuse you need to check, htr-ac fuse 25 amp. Check for voltage on that fuse circuit, use a testlite. Shouldn't be any voltage on that fuse circuit with the key off. If that checks out, then suspect the resistor/relay assembly. The blower motor resistor and blower motor relay may be one assembly? I'd have to look at it, I don't know if you could replace that relay separately. If you can replace relay separately, I'd go with faulty relay.

      Easy repair. Remove the interior door panel for access. The exterior door handle is held by three (3) screws - 10 mm.

    Is it normal for heater to not work when using the remote starter
    87500 no work done on it heater does not when using remote starter, or when using key, then about 5 mins it starts working got the heater fan on full.

      During cold weather and when using the remote starter - turn on the heater temperature controls (not the blower fan) before parking for the night or extended period - to help circulate the engine coolant through the heater core.
