#1920223 symptoms of a bad wheel bearing?

Posted by Coby7 on 13 January 2017 - 04:47 PM

If it sounds like you're sitting in the back of a plane it's the wheel bearing it will often kick up some ABS codes.

Received motors this morning just in time for a Purolator delivery of a cluster or they should maybe be called ''Purelylater''.

Meanwhile did a few FOBs and a cluster repair while waiting!!!  One thing about Purolator they are consistently inconsistent or is that inconsistently consistent.  They're never on time.

Out of the owner's manual

 

Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System 
If this vehicle has the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) system, it operates on a radio frequency subject to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and with Industry Canada.
 
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
 
This device may not cause interference. 
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. 
This device complies with RSS-210 of Industry Canada. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
 
This device may not cause interference. 
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. 
Changes or modifications to this system by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use this equipment.
 
If there is a decrease in the RKE operating range, try this:
 
    •  Check the distance. The transmitter may be too far from the vehicle. Stand closer during rainy or snowy weather. 
 
    •  Check the location. Other vehicles or objects may be blocking the signal. Take a few steps to the left or right, hold the transmitter higher, and try again. 
 
    •  Check the transmitter's battery. See "Battery Replacement" later in this section. 
 
    •  If the transmitter is still not working correctly, see your dealer/retailer or a qualified technician for service.

Batteries last 6-7 years in these FOBs, I only change them when they get bellow 3 volts but they work fine until about 2.7 volts in GMs.

 

I have the exact same problem at home.  It's not your battery, it took me a while to figure out why it worked fine from the house 60' away and I couldn't get it to work once outside until I was almost at the truck.  What was even weirder is when I was at Wally World it would start from 100' away. Then it struck me there's and FM radio transmitter not too far from our house, so I looked up what frequency it was transmitting on and bingo 105.1fm. The third harmonic is 315.3MHz and you guessed it the FOBs run @ 315 Mhz. The fm transmitter jams the FOB, Inside the house you are somewhat shielded especially me with the steel roof and explains why it works inside and not out. I proved it by taking one of the stainless steel salade bowls using it as a shield and a somewhat parabolic reflector and my remote works perfectly outside. So this confirmed to me that their was nothing wrong with the FOB or the system.

 

Pretty sure it is mentioned in the user manual. ''Distance may be reduced where fm transmission are pronounced''.

#1915526 03 Silverado Instrument Cluster

Posted by Coby7 on 05 January 2017 - 08:14 AM

Yup, these resistors are to close to the background speedometer bulb which gets very hot at times causing these to crack and eventually fail.

 

This is one of the reasons I replace all bulbs with LEDs, it drops consumption of cluster by 10 watts

All superficial and cosmetic, easy fix!




#1915506 Rear ended 2009 Chevy Silverado

Posted by Coby7 on 05 January 2017 - 06:34 AM

Mine was way worst than that and look at it now. I replace the rear section of the frame, bed, tailgate, bumper tail lights, leaf springs and fuel pump. Wish I had pictures of the before, but believe me it was buckled after being rear-ended by a texting Ford F250. Truck drives like new again. Just missing the spare tire tube cap in the bumper.

#1914616 GM Scam Artists

I don't believe the OP is a Denali owner at all, I think he was hired by Ford to write a bad review on forum.




#1914600 What did you do with your truck/shop today

Posted by Coby7 on 03 January 2017 - 02:02 PM

This morning did an other 2004 TopKick cluster for a guy from Calais Maine. Paid me with Canadian money too. Then I did a 2003 Avalanche cluster refurbish and a 2005 Uplander FOB ( 15114374 ). I'm down to 15 motors, my order better come in soon.

I had the funniest thing happen to me tonight at the Petro-Can. This couple in a lifted white Ford F250 stopped beside me passenger side window rolled down and the the driver screamed from the driver's side '' Thank You for all the gifts'' at first I was kind off baffled then I realized.......after taking a selfie what the whole joke was about.  l0l Just missing the red hat......
