Ok, I have a 2010 chevy buswith a6.6 duramx diesel. The problem happens out of nowhere. If you shut the bus off and leave come back to start it it wont crank at all. No codes are stored starter is new and everything checks out! Any ideas?? It starts after a while again then it happens again

Of course with any start problem-- check the batteries-- They are wired in parrallel so you need to isolate one to test them.

Be sure all the connections are tight and clean.

I vagely remember there was a problem with the LMM not starting-- and GM had a re-flash for the system-- I searched for a TSB, and could not find anything. Might check with a dealer.

Were are you at?
If it is losing communication with the Vehicle security module then it could be the IGN switch, or just something throwing the program loopy. Check all the fuses with an ohm meter or test light when it does it again. You could be losing connectivity when it is warm. Does the bus have an alarm on it or possibly a saftey switch that will disable it?

Is there any common factors with the weather or anything? It sounds like you may just have a loose connection. I have no Idea where the security module on a bus Is. I would assume it would be in the relay center. I know the Duramax trucks security is part of the ECM programming.

Not really on the weather. Ive checked all grounds and everything. Ill look into the security module to see where its located. Thanks for some input!

Did you contact the dealer to have the security system re-flashed-? There was a TSB on it-- never did find it.

Did you have the batteries tested-?

Here is some info--Condition Sorry-- it was NOT for the 2010.
All 2007 and certain 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, Express; GMC Sierra and Savana vehicles, equipped with a 6.6L Duramax Diesel V8 (RPO LMM - VIN 6) engine, were produced with an ECM programming error that can result in incorrect data being written to the EEPROM used by the vehicle theft deterrent system, causing the engine not to crank or start.

Correction
Dealers are to reprogram the ECM with revised software that corrects the programming error.

When the batteries were tested-- did they isolate them, by removing one cable-? If not, the test is not valid.

I am still thinking batteries, or loose cable.
