I stopped in at my dealer today to just chat with a friend (sales manager) and he was showing me the truck he ordered in for himself.

Apparently the rear slider is no longer available indefinitely on the 14's. Too many problems; has anyone here experienced this?

Just find it odd of GM to discontinue the non-step rear bumpers (Denali specific) and now the window?

I have to rear window also, no issues. I am getting the regulator replaced under the the TSB that was issued in November. I've had no issue's with it, just getting it replaced.

As far as I know, the sliding window is still on my build sheet for my Christmas Baby Denali. I guess I won't know for sure until it's delivered. I'm guessing the TSB takes care of the issues, it's just a matter of making enough replacement parts and having anything left over for production.

 

IIRC, the non-step bumper was never available on the Denali. They came on the earlier All Terrains, the Denalis always came with painted step bumpers and the All Terrains eventually transitioned to them after a while.

Yes I ordered and received the rear slider as well. No problems yet: What was the TSB?

However I placed my order at the same time a friend did.

 

He ordered a A/T with the non-step and thats what he received.

I ordered an HC with non-step and received the step - even though my build sheet said painted: non step.

"Originally" = being 3-4 months back: you had the option of having painted step or non-step rear bumpers on the A/T, HC and the "future" Denali. Sometime in the past 4-6 weeks (I was caught right in the middle of it) GM decided to make the painted non-step bumper Denali specific which meant all A/T and HC trucks must get the painted step.

I hope your truck arrives as you ordered. Please keep us updated so we know the status on whether or not this option is still or will be available in the future.

Thanks, I'll definately let people know when it shows up.

I don't think this is accurate though. It is my understanding that Denalis have always come with the painted step bumpers and the non-step painted bumpers are no longer available on anything. In short, all current bumpers are step--chrome for most models, painted for Denali, All Terrain and High Country.

I ordered my truck on 12/6 and the rear slider was available and selected. The order was confirmed on 12/9 and the rear slider was NOT included and the price of the truck was reduced by $250.

 

When I inquired as to why, I was told that there were known problems with the window unit and that the supplier was not cooperating with GMC to resolve the problem, so they dropped the vendor and discontinued the option until a suitable replacement can be found.

 

True / false - I don't know, but this is what I was told.

My regulator messed up the 2nd week I had it. Took about 2 weeks for a replacement to come in, but it's been trouble-free ever since. That was in July, so it's been a while.

Mine was ordered with the slider on 10/29, picked up at dealership on 12/16, and the slider was deleted. Even the sales guys at the dealership are pissed about it.

 

I'm a senior engineer at a technology company that is a supplier, and we design and manufacture all types of high-technology components. I'm sure we would be willing to look at taking over the design of this if GM wants. We could probably turn it into a fully functional sliding touchscreen if that's what they wanted. Who is the current manufacturer of the slider?

When did they discontinue it all together? My truck was built in sept and I have one that works great so far.

I'm sure it was built to a price point... they gambled and lost. Anything can be made near perfect with enough time, money, and resources.

I think they should go to a Tundra style retracting window. On of the few things I miss form the Tundra, Nice to have the whole rear window go down.

Wow, you ordered Oct 30 and already picked it up? That's great. What options did you have?

      Hello, I own an 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel Crew Cab Long box pick up, it's throwing a display message, but not giving me any codes, the message is service trailer brake system, it used to show that message and then I had it brought into the shop the second of July and they replaced the trailer break relay in the rear, had to change out some eye connectors at the fuse box. They also replaced the fuse. Worked great again from then to about a three weeks ago and this was including an 11 000km trip towing the trailer, it brought the message up again. The truck had been sitting and driven every once and a while, a bit of idling this winter as well, but no towing. so I replaced the fuse because it looked blown. After replaced it work fine again no more message thought maybe wet weather caused it. Now unfortunately now again yesterday I went to use it again and the message comes up, it was just recently used a few days ago and no message, today we have some dense fog as well as some rain. I think it only happens when it rains heavy or fog.. I am not entirely sure on that though. I replaced the fuse in the fuse box for the (ITBC) The one I changed out before to get it to work, and this time it did not work and nothing changed on the dash message still up.  I can more than easily replace the Relay without any issues, but I don't want to do that if it is just going to create the exact same issue. Any ideas on what might be causing this?
       
      Also on a side note, whenever I start the truck it puts out grey smoke until it has warmed up passed about 79-85 degrees Celcius (174F-187F), which is normally after driving for about 5 mins 10 at most or letting it high idle until that temp, it also does smoke when driving until warmed up. it never puts out black or blue smoke. Its grey, just as it is on a cold day in a gas engine. today we've reached the highest temp lately about 8 degrees Celcius and it still smoked. It never did this in the summer or fall just after it got cold. So I am just wondering if this is normal or if something is causing this to happen when it shouldn't be. Could it be something  as simple as it needing an oil change? Or also does it need a long drive at highway speed to deal with burn cleaning the DPF? I am a new owner to this pickup, and it is my first year with it so I am new to diesel's and don't know what to expect from them.
       
      Any help Is much appreciated!

      Hello there,
       
      i have a 2017 SLE Sierra, and i have a "problem" My parking assist is not beeping.
       
      the camera works correctly  on the gmc IntelliLink  and sensors visual alert on the driver information center are working fine  but the sound when something is close to the sensors is not working.
      I've already searched the options on the IntelliLink, turned off and then on didnt solve the problem.
       
      a few days ago I got installed  new speakers and amplifier I do not know if it's related to that, tbh i just noticed the lack of sound on the parking assist.
       
      Turn signal, Seat belt and all the chimes sounds are working fine.
       
      Anyone have this issue before? Any ideas how to fix it? 
       
      regards

      Alright so I have this idea and I don't know if its possible or not. Camaro's have an option where you can have illuminated door panels, I would like to do something similar in 2017 silverado. I have already added interior door piping that matches the exterior color of the truck. I would like to take that same concept but use EL wire instead of the silver piping to create illuminated door panels. I dont want to do too much but I think it would add a little more to the interior and be different. 
       
      My thoughts are to get some EL wire with the welting attached to it and place it where the current piping is. But the part I am on the fence about would be what to wire it to. These doors have the lights in the handles that dim with the main dimmer for all of the dash. I was wondering if it could be wired into the circuit that way it would be the same brightness as all the other illumination on the dash. But if you have ever messed with EL wire before, it runs of AC current. You need a 12v driver for them to operate off of a 12v system.
       
      Would it be better to run 1 inverter that would power all 4 doors and then have to run the wire through the whole cab or purchase 4 smaller inverters and place them in behind the door panels. If I was to only use 1 inverter I could possibly connect it to the main dimmer switch instead of the doors circuit. But these lights should not pull alot of current so I'm unsure which would be the best way.
       
       
      In these picture on my door panel the silver line coming from where the window switch is, is the piping. Thats where the EL wire would go. If i used 1 driver i would need to use a 4 way splitter to go to each door. I have attched a picture of multiple drivers, these things come in all different sizes. The driver i would use if I did 4 different inverters is used to power up to 2 meters of wire. The amount in would be powering would be way shorter then that and the inverter is about 1 inch by 2 inch, so very small. The 1 big inverter option is pretty good size and also is rated to power up to 15 meters.
       
      This should be relatively cheap
       
      4 drivers = $28
      EL wire= $15
      connectors= $15
      so about $60
       
      I believe I have found a color that matches the chevy color, the aqua color is pretty dang close if not identical. For the sierra guys, they make red as well. 
       
      You would need connectors so you can cut the EL wire to length for the door, It is pretty easy to wire the connector to the EL wire. Most use a 2 pin JST wire connection and you can get a kit with 10 connectors and heat shrink for like $10. I am just wondering if anybody has thought of this or done this and how. If you have any experience with EL wire please chime in.

      Truck started to make a squeaking noise this weekend, took it to the dealership on Monday. Dealership called Tuesday and said that they could not find anything wrong with the truck and that this sound is normal. Take a look at this video so that you can hear and understand what I am talking about.  https://youtu.be/aERzjGAX-aU
      Does this sound normal to you guys? I also put water on the belt and the noise was persistent so it does not appear to be the belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey all, SO let me start by mentioning I changed out my stock lower ball joints to Moog lower ball joints on November 5th, 2016. This being said, I removed the stock LBJ after 40k miles (20k on level w/ stock tires, 20k on 6" RCX knuckle and spacer lift w/ 35x12.5 tires and 20x9 rims @ 0 offset), and it looks like I am needing to replace them AGAIN! Barely even 10k miles later I am seeing the same irregular wear pattern as when I had the stock ball joints. I greased them when new and at oil change (every 5k mark). I got the vehicle aligned the following day after I installed the new LBJ btw, and I also changed the UCA to cognito arms at the same time.
       
      What I am curious of is if the issue is lying in the stock rancho shocks and the spacer lift maybe being too rough on the LBJ on the truck, this being said, does anyone else with more knowledge/experience in this area have any advice or other possible causes? I have searched the internet and haven't found anything really definitive so Im at a loss. I am at 50k right now and will have the truck at the shop within the week to get the alignment checked as well as other routine maintenance performed.
       
      I am just at a total loss and don't want to run through these new tires nearly as fast as I went through my old ones (barely even 25k miles before the edges were at 10% tread remaining at best)
       
      The rear tires are wearing beautifully but the fronts are wearing from the outside, in. The outer scalloped edges are all even and smoothed out, whereas the interior side of the tire still has extremely defined edges that look practically brand new
       
      I'll get photos and attach for reference.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help.
