Buick is expanding a fundraising opportunity it is offering to local schools. "Drive for Your Students" is a test drive initiative that pairs local dealerships with local high schools. The premise is pretty simple. The High School host the event, students work it, and Buick provides the cars. The school earns $10 per test drive for the first 100 drives. After that the donation doubles, to $20, up to $10,000 in total.

2015 Corvette Z06 priced to sell at $78,995

Chevrolet will price the 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe at $78,995 and the convertible at $83,995. Laying claim as the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever built, the Z06 has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 engine producing 650-horsepower. That's more horsepower than was spec'd the sixth-generation ZR1, which only had 630. Considering the ZR1 cost north of $110k, a sub-$80,000 Z06 sounds like a bargain.

Removing The Front Seat - 2014 Silverado

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 10:36 PM
Will be needing to remove the 40/20/40 bench in my '14 Silverado regular cab. My '03 Sierra had the "reverse-Torx" nuts holding the seats down, so I am ready for that tool-wise, but the thing I am worried about is breaking the plastic covering these areas. Has anyone pulled their front seats yet, and if so, how about the plastic covers?

2014 silverado: Installing subs

Off-Topic Yesterday, 10:09 PM
So I recently went to a stereo shop and had them do the wiring for a sub and amp with my stock stereo I have a regular LT. According to the guy they pulled signal from both right and left pilar speakers from floorboard. they connected a high/low converter so that I can keep my stock stereo. I connected a 1000 what amp with a sony sub to test and the results are horrible. It sounds like there's no sub at all? Has anyone had this issue? Or have any suggestions why this may happen? I thought I read that you need to pull signal from head u it or from p but I don't think my regular cab LT model had amp?

Heated Steering Wheel

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 09:57 PM
I had my truck in for service one of the things I had them look at was my heated steering wheel. Only the bottom and sides get slightly warm. When I took delivery I'm pretty sure the whole thing got warm. Dealer told me it's working. Can any of you please check yours for me and let me know if your wheel gets warm at the top as well as the bottom.   Thank you in advance!

'15 Tahoe AC

2015 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon, & Cadillac Escalade Yesterday, 09:24 PM
Took the Tahoe in today for service, see robsieb post "first issue with Yukon" for details.  To summarize, AC temp gets hotter as outside temps climb to triple digits.  The situation in the Tahoe was identical to the Yukon's, but the service technician did not replace the expansion valve.  Instead, after an AC system check, he determined the "AC High Pressure Sensor" was faulty.    The sensor was replaced and the technician said the AC was blowing icicles.  Yeah, the AC is cold, but I thought it was cold before I drove it in 100 degree temps.  It's not hot enough where I live so I may have to put the truck on the road to test if the Sensor was the issue.

Is it safe to change to Synthetic?

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 08:55 PM
I Drive a 2000 Sierra that has a 4.8L Vortec in it The engine has 128,000 miles or so on it now. I drive a fair amount, almost 3,000 miles every month or so going back and forth to School and upstate New York. That being said, conventional oil doesn't stay as clean as I'd like it to and I find myself changing it almost every month and the money adds up. I'm wondering if it's safe to change it over to Synthetic oil (Without it leaking) and whats the best way to go about it? If I can get away with changing the oil less often by using Synthetic, would be great. I do oil changes from 3,000 to 3,500 miles, but I don't know what the previous owner maintained, because when I got it, It was a bit of a mess. So i have no idea the conditions of the oil seals. I'd appreciate any feedback I can get!

SLT led accent lighting dim mod...

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 12 Sep 2014
Hey everyone Phil from FastHeadlights LLC. Just jumped on this forum. Seems like a lot of technically knowledgeable guys over here. So I am doing a lot of retrofits on the 14s. I am trying to figure out the dimming on the SLT accent lighting when headlights turn on. I will admit that I am not a wiring or electrical genius. Attached are a bunch of pics. The white wire on the main plug is the one that sends power to the top and bottom leds. The white wire splits out and gets distributed as the multi color wires after going into the voltage regulator/resistor/circuit box. Trying to figure out how to bypass this box so the upper and lower lights stay on full power. Anyone else attempted to take this on? The pics labeled Top means the wires go to the upper leds. There are five wires that go into each (upper and lower). The + and - symbols indicate on the plug which side is positive and negative. I am at a loss and with knowing what I don't know...... I know better than to just start criss crossing wires. Lol. Any help from someone with a good understanding of electronics would be awesome. Wires going to bottom.

LED Under Rail Bed Lighting

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 05 Aug 2013
Does anyone know or has anyone looked into adding the Factory Under Rail LED lighting?    I mean is it something that I could add to my truck since I didn't get that option from the factory?   I wouldn't think it would be too difficult since I have the cargo lamp button on my dash.  I would think it would just plug into the fusebox somewhere and also tie into that switch.   Any thoughts?

Adding Aftermarket Sub/Amp

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 03 Sep 2013
I did this upgrade awhile back, but have been really busy and never got around to posting. I know there's already a topic on the K2's Bose system, but that one discusses models with the bench seats. My upgrade was done on an SLT with bucket seats and factory Bose sub under the center console. Selected pics are posted at the end.     After removing the center console, I discovered the Bose sub (it's only 6") but not the Bose amp. I guessed it was somewhere buried behind the dash, so I decided to simply hook up a Hi/Lo Signal Converter to the Bose sub's input lines to save some time/effort. It provided a very clean, strong signal but is only suitable for adding an aftermarket sub, since the signal to the Bose sub is low freq only. If you choose to do this, the blue wire is "+" and the gray wire is "-".   After running all my wiring under the carper and re-installing the center console, I moved on the mounting my amp. Removed the rear seats and discovered... the Bose amp mounted to the rear wall of the truck. If you look under the center of the seat, you'll see swiss-cheese-holes in the insulation. The amp is just up and left of those openings. I don't have any info on the K2's amp wiring but I'm sure eventually PAC...
