  1. I'll throw this out as a long shot.... Check your battery and cables. If there is an issue in the electrical system, it can cause weird codes to be thrown.
  2. My led lights are the flexible kind that have the sticky tape on one side. I just stuck it to the plastic duct, following the contour of the duct.
  3. I was checking the lights on my bass boat trailer that I hadn't used in 10 years. I was having troubles with the running lights also. Checked grounds and lights and looked for cuts in the wires. Found nothing. Went to move the trailer when it was dark and all of the lights worked. I figured out that my light sensor for the auto headlights was keeping the running lights from coming on even though I used the switch for all lights on. I put a towel over the sensor and the lights would come on. Maybe you have a similar issue? Just a thought.
  4. IIRC, I had my front bolts snug at first, then latched the lid to them. I made sure the latches closed completely. I folded up the cover on top of the front panel for weight. Then I loosened the bolts so that the lid would lay flat. I tightened the bolts in that position. If you're latches are releasing when you put a slight pressure on the lid to open, you may need to adjust the cables to allow more slack so that the latches close completely.
  5. Drawing time for some really cool stuff

    oh boy!!!
  6. Look up Tech Armor on Amazon. They make the screen covers for the Mylinks.

    Welcome! Nice Truck.
  9. This topic started at very timely time. I was researching replacement tires for my oem GY LS2. Michelin LTX M/S2 and Defender LTX M/S were top of my list. My LS2 had over 60K miles but still had 6/32" tread left - that's 50%. But my wet traction was practically nil. I knew the wet traction wasn't the greatest, but I started having incidences of fishtailing when switching lanes on the interstate during wet road conditions. I checked out the local tire dealers for prices and checked online for tire reviews. Michelin had the $70 rebate going and some tire dealers displayed that, other had $70 off a set of 4 tires. I called my Chevy dealer for a quote. They quoted me a lower price for a set of 4 Michelin Defender LTXs and there was a $70 rebate through GM (goes thru Nov 2016). So I had my dealership do it. I've had the new tires on for just over a week. So far the ride has been smooth - very comparable to the LS2. Gas mileage seems to be in the same ballpark too. Wet traction is greatly improved. Have driven in some heavy rain this past week and traction has been great. I'm looking forward to the snow this winter to see how the tires handle that.
  10. When you read through the listing, it says 60W bulbs, 120W kit.
  11. You can open and close the tailgate with the cover closed. The only issue would be the weatherstrip on the rear panel would be tucked in instead of laying across the top of the tailgate. There could be a water intrusion issue then. The FAC should fit on the Denali with the factory bedliner. The FAC rails sit on top of the bed rails.
  12. I am selling a used Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite bed cover. This cover was on my 2014 Silverado CCSB. The cover has hail dings and was replaced by my insurance. The hardware and bed rails are brand new because the person installing the replacement cover replaced just the cover and not everything. This cover should fit 2014+ 5'8" beds. Due to the weight of everything, I will not ship. Local deals only. Asking $500. Located in Union, MO. Willing to meet within 100 miles. You can see pics on my CL ad: http://stlouis.craigslist.org/pts/5709355543.html
  13. My FAC G4 does that. I don't know why. I just lift up the cover and it then falls into place. I just got a new FAC G4 that the insurance replaced the previous one due to hail damage. It did the same thing. Other than that the cover has been great.
