I have a 2001, Chevy 3500 dually w/8 liter engine. It has a very random ignition problem. Here are the details. To start the check engine light is not on. The problem is at random times the engine won?t start, the starter turns but it won?t start, if you take the key out and wait a second sometimes it starts again sometime it doesn?t. It has a remote to lock and unlock. I have pushed the remotes unlock button when this has happened and it started, sometimes it doesn?t. I have also shook the ignition switch and it has started, sometimes it doesn?t. I have also just taken the key out and put it back in and it started sometimes it doesn?t. I took it and had it put on a diag w/ no code. When it is running it runs great. Here is the kicker, I was driving it the other day and it stalled at 45 mph, it was the first time this happened. I coasted to the side of the road, turned on my hazards, took the key out, pushed unlock on the remote, and it started. The other thing is the cruise control stop working when I tried to use it right after this. I am getting ready to take my horse on a road trip. I can?t have a truck that won?t start with horse stuck in a trailer. Any help you can give will just make my new year.
Extra details for this truck are as follows:
1. It pulls a 2 horse trailer w/ brakes
2. It is also wire for a 5TH wheel
3. It has 18300 miles on the engine
4. the engine gets regular oil changes and well kept
