  1. Just hit the middle "check" button on the steering wheel and the cruise notification screen will go away. Actually, any time the DIC shows a notification, it will go away by pressing that.
  2. I'm so annoyed by noises in my truck, my wife always refuses to answer me when I mute the radio and ask her "do you hear that?" . I'm really glad GM got rid of the doors that went all the way to the roof line. I don't know how many times I greased the weather stripping on that 08 Sierra to make the squeaks and rattles stop!
  3. Well, I'm officially an idiot. So after buying a borescope that connects to my phone via USB and taking all the vents off and searching in the ducts, it turns out there was no coin in any of the them. I had my daughter and wife take turns sitting in the middle seat and listen while I shook the truck side to side. After a few turns listening, their opinion of where the sound was coming from changed to up above. So I decided to take the panel off the top console not expecting to find anything. Instead, I found a loose screw rolling around. I felt like such a fool lol. I could've swore my daughter put a coin in there because at that same time I had stopped her from dropping a candy wrapper down there. Plus, she was playing with some loose change I had in the console. So I owed her a big apology with an ice cream lol. Sorry if I left some of you in suspense for how I got the coin out lol.
  4. I'll be tackling this this weekend, so I'll keep you guys posted on my results.
  5. I actually bought some Gorilla tape. It's some pretty sticky stuff.
  6. That has actually crossed my mind lol With my luck, that too would drop in and that wouldn't be good with these Texas summers.
  7. That's not a bad idea! I'm still going to bring a scope home and see if I can visualize it, then try your method. Thanks for the suggestion.
  8. If I can see where's it's at, maybe I can wrap some double sided tape to my fish tape reel and try to get the coin to stick to it while viewing with the scope.
  9. You know I could actually "borrow" a scope from work. I'm in the healthcare field and we use what is called a bronchoscope to go down patient's lungs. We have disposable ones that are at least 3 feet long.
  10. If it continues, I just might have to lol. I can't stand rattles in my trucks.
  11. Yes duquephart, that's what I meant.
  12. I'm pretty sure American coins aren't made with enough metal for a magnet to work.
  13. Been there before. When my son was 1, he dropped a toy down the port on the back of my subwoofer. Fortunately I was able to take the amp off the back and get it that way.
  14. I did take all the vents out the other day to see what I was dealing with and I'll definitely have to get a vacuum hose and try that way. My mother-in-law has a really flat vacuum hose she uses to vacuum out the lint from her dryer vent that's inside the dryer, not the the one leading outside. That's a pretty narrow opening, so maybe I'll have luck with that. I just don't know how long that hose is.
