Topics I've Started

Hate my power windows

17 May 2017 - 07:44 PM

I have those plastic gutters, like to put the windows down about an inch, but the auto on the up and down of all four Windows makes it a chore. Seems the liability of the auto up would make that not an option going up. Is there any way to turn this madness off? Are people really that busy that they can't hold the button for the 5 seconds it take to move the window all the way?
I do enjoy the full down with the remote.

Radio to phone issues

30 March 2017 - 12:00 PM

Trucks a 17, phone is a IPhone 5s, both new in December. At first all was well, I liked the projection. Then that stopped working, now the Bluetooth is getting slower and slower auto connecting. I'll sit in the truck when I first start it, waiting for them to connect, finally I give up. And it won't even try to connect while I'm driving.

Oil change next month, I'm wondering if the truck needs a update.

iBoard running board woes

14 March 2017 - 06:42 AM

They seem to be sturdy, I did paint the brackets before install.
Poor design on the hangers, the front right is a two piece because of the def tank, but my box clearly states 1500.
There is one bolt that holds the two pieces together, the bolt will act as a hinge, I complained and they sent an entire bag of 5 hangers and the hinge.
You could weld the two pieces together, but it's the principal. I'll post pics later.

Apple car play problems

08 March 2017 - 07:41 PM

I figured it wouldn't last long, the Apple car play worked great for about a month, still using the same cable. Radio doesn't recognize the phone, it does display the Bluetooth symbol, and calls work, but I really enjoyed the full projection options.
The other problem is the volume is always too low to hear, so I'm bumping the volume up at the first call each time I plug it in.
I'm sure GM blames Apple and Apple blames GM.

Tailgate lift assist

Does the factory offer a spring loaded tailgate?
I see people raving about the DeeZee lowering gas shock, but the torsion bar I saw installed on utube looked like some guaranteed rust holes in the near future.
What other options are there?
