i just received a call from my dealership service rep and he informed me they will be replacing the injector harness for cylinders #2and #7 for free as it is covered under my 5 year 100,000 mile engine warranty...:rockin:drink

i did some research on the ice pick fix and didn't find any good info on it. i did find out that there is a repair kit via gm for this problem. the gm part number is 98017958. it retails for $254.00. it is a do it your self repair. that's alot better than a $1000.00 harness replacement!!!!

p.s see you are in the lawn care business. that is one of my businesses also!!!!

just had this e-mailed to me about the ice pick fix....

Here is a link to another Forum that has a good step-by-step of how to do the Ice Pick fix.
http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=142114

Here is some info I wrote and saved.
That problem is usually caused by a loose connector at the injector. The cheap fix that will last, is to remove the connector, place it against something flat, and push a SHARP ice pick into both terminals. This will raise a dimple inside the connector for a better contact. Do this for #2 and #7 injectors. (The cylinders are numbered from the front--- passenger side- 1-3-5-7 and the drivers side is 2-4-6-8)

Also inspect the FICM harness at the alternator for shorts and wear-through. The harness is tied down with a zip tie, gets cut and shorts by contact with the sharp corner of the bracket.

These are common problems for the LLY engine. Everyone that has a LLY should know how to do this, and have a sharp ice pick in the glove box!

The link is no good... I have a buddy w/ an lb7 w/ a injector 7 high out put code (P1241) and I wanted to try the ice pick thing. But couldn't find a write up or any pictures of where the actual harness is located on the injector.

Any1 have pics or a good write up on how to do the "ice pick"?
beware the ice pick fix may last for a day, a week, a month or year. is it worth the worry? i did not think so and fixed it the correct way.....

X2

and the alternator rub area pics?
just look at the wire harness that is zip tied to the top of the alternator bracket. cut the zip tie and inspect the wires if you see a bare wire from rubbing the bracket repair it and you are good to go....

you can purchase the repair kit from any gm dealer. it will give you the new harness for both cylinders and all the mounting hardware needed. the gm part number is 98017958. it retails for $250.00 ed

your truck might be covered under the 5 year 100,000 mile warranty, if so the fix is free. just had mine done 2 days ago.....

Thanks for the part #... Got my harness off doing head gaskets so I'll add this to my repair work... About 98,000 miles I had a intemittent miss on # 2 according to my scanner... then it went away... thought I had a injector problem. Maybe the harness/connector was acting up. 107,000 no warranty so I'm learning a lot in the school of hard knocks.
