Dash removal

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 09:29 AM
Figured this would be the best place for this I'm looking to transplant a Denali Cluster into my SLT. My question is just like the title says, dash removal. Does anyone know how to remove the dash easily for access to the cluster mounts so the old one can be removed and the new can replace it? Thanks in advance. BTW, no hating on my decision, constructive advice is good but just no "why would you do that" or "that's a terrible idea" kind of comments.

Ordered 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 6.2L/8-speed arrived at dealer

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 07:18 AM
My father's 2015 Silverado LTZ with the 6.2L/8-speed arrived at our dealer in NH this past Tuesday.  We're currently waiting for the Certificate of Origin to arrive and will probably pick up the truck mid-week next week.  This is the first 6.2L/8-speed that they received.  The truck was formally ordered mid-September as soon as an allocation was available to the dealer (likely the second or third week of allocation since only 10 Double Cab 6.2L/8-speeds were available nationwide on the first week).   Here's the build:   CK15753 – 4WD Standard Box Double Cab LTZ (2LZ/Z71) GCE - Deep Ruby Metallic H2U – Jet Black interior L86 - Engine, 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 (w/M5U 8-speed) CGN - Spray-on bed liner UF2 – LED bed lighting CTD - Cargo tie downs (4), movable upper

2015 Regular Cab Options

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 06:10 AM
Hello. New to this forum. Just wanted to say hello and possibly get some thoughts on the regular cab. I'll be getting a 2015 Reg Black color. I've got the option to purchase from 2 different dealers. The first offers, the regular cab, with the forward radar and lane assist options, and adaptive cruise controls, and reverse camera. But the multimedia unit/radio is a 4 inch. (Interior color is completely charcoal grey/black) The second dealer, offers one with 20 inch rims and a 8 in multimedia unit/radio. But does not have the radar/lane assist/adaptive cruise control. (Interior color is beige with a mix or brown) This one is $2000 more than the first dealer. What would you choose ? Guys ! thanks for your replies and help. K

Interior rattles, groans, and buzzes

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 03:26 AM
I have a 14 z71 crew 4x4. There is a groaning sound that comes from the passenger side back seat area when I pull into parking lots that have a n elevation change from the street to the lot. Almost like it's twisting the seat frame causing the noise. Took it to the stealer and they tried to tell me it was the seat backs rubbing together and it's normal. Anybody else have this problem. Also on the driver side back seat it sounds like there is a half empty box of shotgun shells that is rattling around. They said they found loose trim piece and fixed it. NOT. The loaner I had had this same sound except 10 times worse. Anybody got any ideas? My dealer is worthless.

Tune / Flash / Calibration question?

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 02:25 AM
Hey, I'm hoping someone with more knowledge then me could chime in here.   I've read that the new trucks have a "flash" counter that would be tripped and show if a truck has been tuned, even if it has been returned to stock before a dealer visit etc. I've got a Hypertech speedometer calibrator coming and as far as I can tell it's going to trip this flash counter in the same way a tune would. Now granted iv'e read about a lot of people that have used these with no issues at all and clearly a speedometer calibration would not harm a truck. That being said, is it clear what has been changed when this flash counter gets tripped?   I've got an extended warrenty on my rig and would hate for the dealer to act shitty and not honour it some time down the road because ive got an extra flash count from this kind of device.   Any mechanics here who have seen what this "counter" actually displays? is it ovbious when it's just a speedometer calibration vs some kind of tune?   Thanks!

scan codes

Ask the GM Technician Today, 01:53 AM
I took my truck to a mechanic a few days ago because it was not performing well.  The scan codes he allegedly found are P0171, P0174, P0300, P0420 & P1153P. What do those codes mean?   I went to a different shop & it was scanned there and the codes I got there were different, I don't recall what they are.  They were like only two of the five previous codes.   According to this, what do you think the problem is?

Transmissions Issues/Problems

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 09 Feb 2014
Who else is having a transmission issue? I saw the thread about hard shift into 2nd, but towing yesterday at 65 mph the transmission literally jolted the truck like it fell out on the freeway, scared the sh*t out of me. Also under acceleration it feels at times like it cant find the right gear, hesitates a bit then finds it. Also when decelerating, letting off the gas it paused then hits. Wanted to see if anyone else is having similar issues. Ive taken it twice to my local dealership and both times they say "Sorry, we couldnt get it to replicate for us, here are your keys."

I've looked at a bunch of mufflers through the years and never noticed anything like this. I included a pic, its no the greatest.. it's covered in black soot..but it's there.

Climate control

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 07:54 PM
Previously I don't always like to use the system. AC after awhile gives me a headache and after the car / truck warms up heat isn't needed. I am not used to the climate control pumping out heat or cool even when off. During the summer, the cool wasn't so bad but now the heat is killing me. In my car, when the system is off, I can hit the recirculate button and it stops all flow into the cabin. In the truck the recirc button doesn't do anything. I'd really like to drive with out air blowing uncomfortably at me. Also I've noticed even when the climate control system is on heat, the AC light comes on. Why? I thought AC hurt gas mileage, and wtf does AC have to do with heat?

HMI Upgrade - Video/Nav Entry in Motion, Texting, etc

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 04 May 2014
This is not a sales pitch but more of a gauging interest in developing this software for the 14+ K2XX Pickup Trucks. Here is a quick Video Demo of our current HMI programming operating in our 15 Yukon Denali:     This allows for Video Playing from USB as well as BD/DVD and removes in motion lock from ALL features. This also adds an SMS texting application as well as the addition of the AVI and DIVX video formats. It also adds the welcome sounds back in that welcome you to the vehicle when its off and the startup logo plays (can be turned off on the screen)   We can also do custom programming to reuse salvage HMI's etc...
