  1. Bad hub?

    1. When you say humming noise, is this a sound you hear, or a vibration you can feel as well as a noise? Humming 2. What manoeuvers would make the noise/vibration change? None that I could really tell. 3. What is history on drive shafts, for example, how old are u-joints? I am assuming u joints are still original only because I never changed them. I bought the 2007 tahoe in 2011. 4. What speed does it start humming? Does speeding up make it stop? I always heard it just got louder as I went faster 5. What tires (size/brand/type) are you using, and how old? Goodyear tires. Less than a year ild. Standard size per chevy 6. Does road type make any difference(by type I mean topcoat of road, asphalt, concrete, tar and stone, etc..). None that I could tell The noise is still gone. I am at a lost for words. It was definitely there for at least a week. I got a new hub in that i ordered. A moog 515096. I am going to install it in the drivers side as the passenger side went bad less than a year ago and I have 165,000 miles on the truck. Thanks for your input. If something changes I will post back Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Bad hub?

    Well I drove him home last night and the noise is definitely gone. Could lifting both sides shaken something out? Who knows. Gone now and I'll listen for it more this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Bad hub?

    Not sure if going crazy but I just went out to school parking lot and did some figure 8's. Not sure if I'm losing my mind but I don't think I heard a damn thing this time. It's been going on for about a week. I drive around 120 miles a day to work. The only think I did was jack each tire up to feel for play. And then I switched from auto 4x4 to 2. When I didn't hear anything I went back to auto and it didn't come back. Can't see it just going away by itself. Now I'm really stumped Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Bad hub?

    Will do. I have an 86 k5 that I can tear apart and rebuild all day. Never did too much to this one so it's a bit Berber racking. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Bad hub?

    Sorry. So used to tahoe boards. 2007 tahoe. My neighbor is going to drive in it tonight with me. I can handle doing the hub but never did the attire if that's what it is. Just trying to narrow it down. He is a mechanic so I'm hoping he can at least pin point it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Bad hub?

    I will test more when my wife gets home. I think the noise is worse when I get on the gas and goes away when I let off the gas. Hope it's not a carrier bearing. What do you think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Bad hub?

    Hey guys. Have a bad humming noise almost like when tires are bad but tires are new. I am assuming it's a bad hub on drivers side as the passenger side was already replaced. I jacked it up but the play doesn't seem bad. Any other way to check it?? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think I read somewhere on this forum that people got these non oem units to work. I bought an aftermarket and had to install because I did not have the factory. Another great source to read up on these is on the XDA forums. Just search s150 and there is a huge thread about them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That is mirror link which I don't think works with this but from what I read about mirror link we are not missing anytging Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Not sure if you saw my pic from the other thread but here it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It was absolutely all plug and play. What year truck do you have? You can buy the same unit with android already in it. It's called an s150 but with the s100 you can get it with the wince version and then update it to android with kotix firmware. Only thing with android is if you use an app like poweramp the steering wheel controls will not change it. Steering wheel controls will only work with the radios internal operations like radios dvd and so on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I used an 8gb sdcard and followed his instructions to the tee. You need to format it with the software he has a link to. Load the firmware and let it go. At one point the screen goes blank and you'll here some beeps but it will come back after a minute or so. Just read his page a couple of times. Which unit do you have? Get the backup of your firmware over at the roadnav forums in case you ever want to go back. After having android I don't think I will ever go back though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Ok. So if anyone has seen my other post about the chinese s100 head unit you know I was having issues with it keeping my bose amp turned on in the tahoe. I would have to go into settings and change it every time I got in the truck. Other than that these units are great. I finally found the original firmware and that fixed it. So I was happy. Until I saw a post about installing android on one if these. I installed the rooted android firmware on it and it blows anything else out of the water. If you have an s100 I highly recommend it.

  15. If anyone is interested. I got the android firmware here http://kotixworld.blogspot.com/?m=1 And I got a full backup if the original firmware from the manufacturer (roadnav) in case anything went wrong. I believe this only works with s100 units Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
