  1. Anyway to get a decal up here? I'd like to support the site!
  2. Check your wiring harness. I just fixed 5 wires, 2 snapped , 3 about to break. All in the rubber tube that's in the door jamb. Cheap wiring wears out.
  3. I have a 4.8... it's fine for what it is. I feel like if I had more power, I'd burn more gas as well.
  4. Yeah I know. Dummy me broke my wires for my volt meter and just said screw it. Buy the part. Bought new wires the next day.
  5. Nvm guys. Turns out one wire was getting power at the last connection before it goes through to the door but no power on the door side. Somewhere in the wiring harness the wire must have let go but I wasn't going to rip that all apart. Just ran a new wire past the problem area. Works like a charm. Gotta wonder how something like this goes bad. Lesson on the day.... Don't assume it's the actuator until you check your power feeds!
  6. So here's the problem. 2012 Sierra Crew Cab Yesterday my drivers door decided it doesn't want to lock or unlock with the remote or buttons in the truck. I thought it was the actuator as reading up on this issue seems to be that. I bought a new actuator today and put it on. Still nothing. All the fuses looks good. I pulled any related to door locks and put a new one it its place. Nothing got the door to work. Has anyone experienced this or know what it could be? All other functions work like mirrors and windows. The power locks on all other doors are fine. Truck just rolled
  7. I'm looking at brand new take offs from a 2015 Yukon for my 2012 Sierra. Will the tpms recognize the sensors in the new rims once I learn them? Or has part numbers/systems changed?
  8. Haven't been on the site in years. Glad to see people are still following my write up!
  9. Not a big fan for iPod control, but having sirius again is awesome
  10. So it works. Just fine. No issues. I'll be doing a how to soon once I get the pictures loaded. For anyone who wants sirius or XM but doesn't want to go the factory root, this is the next best option using your factory deck.
  11. Go look at the how to section and my write up. I put these on my 2012 Sierra. Get the kit, it has everything you need. The terminal part can be a bit confusing, just pay attention the what I wrote and the colours along with the instructions.
  12. Finally got around to doing this to my 2012. No test drive yet but we will see how it goes!
  13. The antenna isn't the issue here, its basically hidden behind all the panels and just goes at the center of the windshield. The magnet doesn't hurt the truck in any way. I had one on my old truck for a long time with no issues or paint damage.
  14. So here's the deal, I have a 2012 Sierra SL that did not come with satellite radio. When I hit my band buttons I only have AM/FM and no option for XM. I found this kit that uses the ISGM571 from iSimple and the SCC1 tuner from sirius. For 200 bucks I can't go wrong being able to use my factory head unit. Has anyone ever tried this out and know if it works? I read through the instructions and it says to keep hitting the band button and XM will show up but if it doesn't show up now, will it with the addition of this unit?
