  1. I wonder if the 'headlight condensation' forum subject could play a role in this - the headlight heat with inside condensation?

  3. http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=9536 Some personalization selections may be missing from the Comfort and Convenience Settings menu on some 2017-2018 Envision, CT6, Escalade, Impala, Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban; 2017 ATS, CTS; and 2018 Sierra and Yukon models equipped with infotainment system RPO IO5 or IO6. Also, the fix if menu items are missing from other Settings menus, such as Climate and Air Quality, Collision/Detection Systems, or Lighting.
  4. When I try to log onto mychevorlet.com or to onstar.com/login, I receive: The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Reference #3.6f34f648.1520341967.27a01b9b I've restarted my computer and then cleared the cache - no help. Is anyone else able to log on to either accounts?
  5. New Tire Fill Alert System Pumps Up Tire Inflation Checking for the correct tire air pressure on a vehicle requires a tire air pressure gauge, right? Not on GM models equipped with the new Tire Fill Alert system. It’s included on many new 2018 models, including the 2018 Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Traverse, Sierra, Yukon, Acadia, Escalade, Enclave and others. Also look for the system to be available on many 2019 models. The Tire Fill Alert works with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) provides visual and audible alerts outside the vehicle when inflating a tire to the recommended cold tire pressure. Check the Driver Information Center (DIC) for the current tire pressures when the vehicle tires are low. The Tire Fill Alert begins when the tire pressure warning lamp is illuminated for a low tire. When the driver starts to fill the low tire, the vehicle will flash the turn signal lamp of the corner that is being filled to provide feedback that a tire fill event is occurring. When the placard tire pressure (based on the Tire and Loading Information label located below the driver’s door latch) is achieved, the vehicle will notify the driver with a single, short, horn chirp, similar to the one heard when locking the vehicle. The turn signal lamp of that corner will stop flashing and become solid for a short period of time when the tire is at the correct pressure. If the tire filling continues and a tire is overinflated by more than 5 psi (35 kPa), the vehicle will notify the driver by sounding three short horn chirps. To release and correct the pressure, while the turn signal lamp is still flashing, briefly press the center of the valve stem. When the recommended pressure is reached, the horn will chirp once.
  6. http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=9439 A Low Coolant message may be displayed on the Driver Information Center of some 2017-2018 Silverado and Sierra models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax diesel engine (RPO L5P). An inspection of the radiator surge tank may appear to show a low coolant condition. http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=9437 When draining and filling the cooling system on 2017-2018 Silverado and Sierra models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax diesel engine (RPO L5P), the correct special tools must be used.
  7. Good point (unlatching the hood) as the Remote won't start the engine if the hood is unlatched - safety feature so that the engine can not be started if someone has the hood open and they are working on the engine.
  8. Win a new Silverado - specs on Web site: https://trucksweepstakes.nra.org/the-truck/ This was posted simply to let you see the specs and mods to this supercharged vehicle, but not to get you to join the NRA. Interesting pictures!
  9. Here's a video on how the service tech should be flushing the coolant system for a 2014 + Silverado: https://chevroletforum.com/how-tos/a/chevrolet-silverado-2014-present-how-to-flush-your-radiator-389865 Maybe not as thorough as FL335i, but ...... How often to do a flush and what brand coolant is another matter. Some even suggest using distilled water for the cleaning flushes.
  10. The 'Title' says it all - a video from the car show with a good discussion on the new 'cylinder deactivation' concept (about 1/2 way thru the video). Other good info also. https://news.google.com/news/video/MdgVbpj0hHc/dPrbIXFlEJvaJWMFwRPX8DkqQ0xsM?hl=en&gl=US&ned=us
  11. Jadis, my 2014 Silverado LT does exactly the same thing. At times I am reluctant to play with the screen while I am driving and just leave it on 'phone' until I'm in a safe place to fix it - a pain in the butt!
  12. Jim, it sounds like you have a good grasp of the issue/noise but not on the solution. Just for the heck of it why not pull the cabin filter as see if anything changes as there have been several threads relating to trash (leaves, sticks, etc) falling onto the cabin filter fan. Checking the fan would not be a big problem in time or complexity.
  13. How exactly does a guarantee like this work? Does the tire shop keep everyone's old tires for 30 days just in case the customer does not like the 'new' tires?
  14. I thought the squarish wheel wells on the current models were to help increase gas mileage - that's what I was told anyway. Guess they didn't help too much as they're gone in the pictures - well not entirely, as the pictures show a kind of combo of square and of round design.
