Paul_Aris replied to nomadicdogg's topic in Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & ExhaustI would open a case with customer service at GM and the stealership. Let them know how you feel and that they lost a long time loyal customer,
Hey we still have it and it has been good to us. For an 09 still has relatively low miles. Ibthink we are in the 80,000 somewhere.
I bought a 1990 back in 1991 and loved it. I drove it 10 years. Well when this beauty came up and had to have ti. My twin boys will be driving soon so I just call it theirs. Came with a nice plow for me to do the drive with as well. Not just a Plow but a brand new Boss. This truck is so clean I don't really even drive it much in the winter but to plow my own drive. I've only had it a few weeks.
Paul_Aris replied to Paul_Aris's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMI did end up calling Axxcess just to verify. Come to find out I had the power connected correct before I started second guessing because of the poor instructions. For those who are wanting to do an aftermarket head unit here is the info. The 16 pin GM0S-04 connector does have 2 switched red 12 volt power wires. They both go to the Red switched power on the head unit which is how I had my harness wired. They told me "yeah the instructions did not get updated to show this. Also included on the GM0S harness is a small harness for tying in your steering wheel control interface (sold separate) that has a red 12 volt switched wire that I also tied in to the other red wires and soldered. The tech expert did tell me the newer GM0S-04 no longer comes with the RCA plugs. So I must have the newer version. My dash kit did not arrive yet and either did my steering wheel control interface or backup camera so I was not able to a final install yet. But I did pull the old radio and plugged the new GM0S-04 into my factory harness and plug in my new Pioneer AVH-P4400-BH in. Everything worked first try. The sound is amazing and so is this new DVD head unit. I am so glad I decided to upgrade. The wiring was not that bad. Just follow the instructions as good as you can and you should have no problems. Also for the silverado per the instructions there is a * that states the White with orange stripe and green with orange stripe (I think are colors) on the GM0S harness need to be cut. Did that and saw now problems but like I said I do not have my steering wheel interface yet. I hope this helps.
Paul_Aris posted a topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMOK, I just ordered a Pioneer AVH-4400BH DVD for my 06 Silverado 2500 crew cab LT with stock bose system and on star. I ordered Axcess GM0S-04 to retain my On-star and Door Chimes. I noticed a couple ot things. 1, mine does not have any RCA plugs on the GM0S-04 harness. Weird must be an older model. So I assume I can just go from the Pioner stereo harness speaker leads into the GM0S-04 per instructions? Second, The directions state to connect the red switched power wire on the GM0S-04 16 pin harness (the one that goes from the GM0S-04 to the Pioneer) to the red Power wire on the stereo. That makes sense. However there are 2 red switched power wires on the 16 pin harness. Do I just use one and save the other for another accessory? Speaking of that it appears the GM0S-04 came with Steering wheel Controls harness for your steering wheel controls adaptor I ordered separatley. The part of the GM0S-04 harness that may be used for the steering controls adaptor has a red switched power wire. I assume this needs power also. So do I used the other red lead on the 16 pin harness for that? The directions are not the best with the Axcess unit. As a matter of fact they do not even talk about the smaller harness that appears to be for steering wheel controls.
Brake controller aught to be pretty simple on that rig. I just installed a Tekonshaw P3 on my 09 Suburban in about 10 minutes time while I was out in Wyoming. I do sell them if your interested. gobigparts.com

Paul_Aris replied to cc1999's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I just bought a used 09 Suburban LT with the 5.3L. Seems the new 5.3L does a better job than my 99 with the 5.7L. I would have liked to have got the 6.0 or 6.2L though because I tow a bigger trailer. Not sure I wanted to move to a 3/4 ton for as often as I tow (very little compared to everything else). Here is the question everyone asks. Why no duramax/Allison in the 3/4 ton suburban? I bet if they made one they would sell a lot. For my family and our weekend trips up to our cabin the suburban is just the best all around vehicle.
Not sure. How do I tell?
10 years of new technology sure does make a change. I remember when I got my 1999 GMT800 my dad was still driving his 86 R10 Silverado.... He jumped in with me and we went on a trip about 400miles one way. About half way down he laughed and said. [email protected]* this thing rides like your grandparents Lincoln.... I laughed and smiled real big.... His 86 road aight with several hundred extra pounds in the the bed. Jbo Yeah, there is no feeling like getting something new or almost new. Especially after having your old one for 10 years. Its a feeling of happyness and sadness. Your excited about the new vehicle but also sad that you went back in debt again. I have had several trucks. But I did drive my 1990 Z71 Short box 4x4 for 10 years before buying the Suburban. I bought the 99 Suburban in 2000. I drove it for a couple of years then my wife was involved in an accident which totaled her S Blazer. So seeing how we had kids and she really liked the space the Suburban offered I handed that over to her. With the insurance money we got for the Blazer I went out and Bought a 99 Silverado ext cab. That was a really nice truck. I drove it for several years when my father in-law passed. My mother in-law wanted me to have his truck which was almost new. So I sold my high milage Silverado and started Driving his Dakota. It is not a chevy but it gets me back and forth to work and has so many less miles and is fairly new. The 09 Suburban is just an amazing truck. My wife loves her new ride.
Paul_Aris posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Just purchased an 09 Suburban LT with DVD. Anything I should know about these? Problems? I was on a snowmobile trip to Wyoming dragging my 27' inline trailer with our 99 suburban when tick tick tick tick out of the motor. All the way the other side of Nebraska from Michigan. Seems to be a rod bearing or something let go. Still runs but knocking pretty good. Had some friends in Wyoming come get us. Next day I bought an 09 Suburban in Larmie Wyoming to get us back. I still have the 99 out in NE but need to sell it or get it back. 151,000 miles on the ticker but almost all other parts have been replaced over the last 2 years including tires. Let me know if anyone is interested in the 99 1500 LT for cheap. I may have it hauled home an drop a remanufactured motor in it to sell it and recoup some costs. Back to the 09. Boy do these drive like a dream.
