Seriously... Where Is The Onstar Module In My Truck?

Question

Before you say it, I tried search, and the last guy who posted this question was run through the wringer and never did get his question answered!

 

All I need to know is where is the OnStar Module located in a 2007 GMC Sierra SLT Ext Cab (GMT900) with the non-NAV Bose System, Captain Chairs?

 

I have purchased the CoStar BlueSTAR hands-free BlueTooth kit and I've heard it may be located behind the glove box and it may be under the center console, but before I tear the truck apart locating it, I thought I'd ask the experts!

 

So, have fun with me, but please help in the process! Thanks...

The Onstar module is located in the center panel on the dash, under the radio. You have to remove the lower dash trim panel on the driver's side to remove the lower dash trim panel in the center.

 

This piece here where the ash tray is located.

 

If you are at all curious, the part that is behind the glove compartment is the XM module.

Awesome! Thanks for the help... Any other tips on removing these panels so I don't screw up anything? I don't think I have the ashtray, of if so never noticed it... Also, that appears to be the SLE Dash, not the SLT dash, are they in the same location regardless of the dash you have? I have the SLT Dash... Thanks...

Oh dang, the SLT dash is different you have to remove that face plate from around the radio if I remember correctly. Then I believe you have to remove the A/C controls. I don't have my Helm manual with me so I can't look it up. I have the Chevy equivelant of the SLE dash. When I get home I'll look it up if no one else has chimed in.

Ok, here it is, remove the trim plate, it just pops into place. Then you need to remove the HVAC control module which you need to remove the accessory switch assembly first which has 2 screws. The HVAC controls looks like it has 2 screws holding it in. Then you have to remove the radio which has 4 screws. Then 2 tabs you push to release the OnStar module.

Do you have this information for a 2006 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab with the cd/tape radio?

Sorry, I only have the service manual for the 2008, which is the same as the 07 and mostly the same for the 09. Someone else will have to direct you to it's location.

Did you happen to take any pictures while installing the Bluestar unit? I just purchased one and am dreading the install. Any suggestions when installing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeremy

Many thanks for pointing the OnStar location out. I had to run a wire from that module to the OEM nav system I was installing. This saved me a lot of guesswork when I ran across this thread :thumbs:
