TSB #09126: Charge Air Cooler Inlet Duct Detachment
P0499 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Control Circuit High Voltage
P0499 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Control Circuit High Voltage again. No record of previous 'repair' which was probably just the dealer resetting the check engine light. Light was not on during visit so dealership did nothing. P0499 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Control Circuit High Voltage replaced for real. (Used an alternate dealership)
The electronics don't work properly - they randomly fail to record or over-represent the speed/mileage/gas amount, etc. This has been happening since right after I bought the car. Chevy finally admitted there's a problem.
