  1. Valve stems / TPMS parts ?

    The TPMS sensor mounts on the Valve stem via a screw. On both types on valve stems (metal and rubber) you can replace the stems and keep the TPMS sensor. If these are your original sensors on an '09 I would consider replacing them as well at this point as the batteries should be close to the end of their life. The tire shop can test the battery strength but it is not a very accurate process. The batteries are NOT serviceable. Lookup up sensors on amazon and you will see what them stems and TPMS sensors look like and how they mount.
  2. If you ever used leak seal in the system it probably gummed up the orifice tube. In any event, if you replace the orifice also replace the evap./drier. One can of leak seal for a slow leak over many years and it totally clogged my orifice tube turned into a cement like consistency and was a bugger to remove the tube and clean the system.
  3. I have had the same issue on my 2010 silvy. I removed the plugs under the weatherstripping on the rear doors and left them out. If you had the truck rustproofed when new or recently, just leave them out at it will not happen any more. Been at least three years since i had the issue and I removed then little plugs on Both rear doors. Yearly, I also check the fronts when they respray my truck.
  4. Welcome form another GTA truck owner. Did you check whether the rubber stops inside the leaf springs are still there. That will caused all kinds of bed noise issues. Other than that, you just need someone to look at it on a hoist and see what is going on under there. Any uneven wear on the tires, front or rear?
  5. The number after the E is the percentage of ethanol in the gas. You can use anything up to 85%. Your MPG will go down if you use E85. E15 is the new standard in most states and Canada.
  6. Could also be an internally collapsed brake hose to one of the front calipers, thus not releasing correctly.
  7. You should use the SEO upfitter's connectors up the dash just to the left of the steering column. It has retained accessory power (RAP)triggers and others in it. The camera should be either wired to the backup lights or the 7 pin trailer connector. That is the easiest way to go. www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/109163-rap-how-to-on-nbs-keyed-accessory-power/page-1 give a lot of detail on this method.
  8. Yes it is. There is a bundle of cut end wires under the centre of the dash and two wires that need to be attached by the fuse box. The way to do this should be in your owners manual.
  9. Definitely need a relay on NNBS trucks or you will develop issues later and possibly burn out a bulb or ballast. If you start to get rapid pulse, flicker or the occasional non-start issue the relay will fix this.
  10. If it's just the left side of the trailer it has to be the trailer wiring, bulbs or sockets as the right side uses the same wiring as the left from the truck.
  11. I usually weld a nut to the top of the lock and get it off that way. You can use anti-splatter to protect the rims.
  12. Typically GM wire colours are White for ground, Brown for the tail lamp and the Yellow and green for the turns to match usual trailer wiring. Try these first with your test meter.
  13. There is only one ground if it is an 07 NNBS. The wires are as follows Ground, Constant power, Left brake and turn lamp, right brake and turn lamp, Tail lamps Electric brakes power Backup lamps You might be better off getting the whole original GM Pigtail (prewired)
  14. You could try asking at the GM owners' centre in Canada. I downloaded mine there for a 2010. http://www.gmccanada.ca/owner-centre.html
  15. You will need the programmer to activate the sensors while in relearn mode or access to one. Most tire shops have them and will let you borrow them to do the relearn which only takes 1-2 minutes. They are cheap to buy as well. Every time you change your wheel positions you need reprogram the locations even rotating the tires. Your manual details the procedure. The Kent Moore tool is the cheapest usually
