Absolutely agree. This is the first vehicle that I've ever had problems with. In my opinion the defrost should completely seal off. In fact, my engineering opinion is the same. I once worked as an mechanical design engineer for a Tier 2 Automotive HVAC supplier (we made the actuators). I messaged by former manager who has been and automotive engineer most of his career and he said that it was odd also, that the ideal design is to shut off the air completely. As posted above, apparently that's not how GM designs it now.. I shouldn't ever have to turn the temperature to where I'm uncomfortable as a work around to make the A/C work like it should and prevent a safety issue.
Yes. It can be removed by windshield wipers.
I’m having an issue with my 2019 Chevy Silverado RST. I’m hot natured so many times in the summer, I have the A/C cranked down to Lo (62F). There are times when I drive like this for 20-30 minutes or more, just depending. This summer I noticed that on my drive to work on a really hot humid morning, my windshield would start to fog up due to cold air coming out of my defrost. I’ve never had this happen before. Sure enough I could feel cold air coming out of the defrost vent even though my defrost wasn’t on. I tried to cycle the vent actuators and couldn’t fix the issue. The only thing I can do is to turn up the A/C temp which is unacceptable, but it’s all I know to do. I have since took the truck into the dealership and they noted that sometime around 2015-2017, all Silverado’s were designed to have a small amount of air coming out of the defrost. The service guy said he didn’t believe it either until he went from vehicle to vehicle on the lot and all of the newer vehicles were the same. I’m really puzzled on this one at why this would be something that would be designed in and me being an engineer, it doesn’t sound right to me. It’s honestly a HUGE SAFETY issue because my view is blocked when it shouldn’t be and I’m adjusting controls trying to get my view back, while driving. Does anyone else have this issue and was it resolved? Or are there others that have the same situation as this?
I have a brand new (extra) set of BDTrims 3D (Domed) Silverado decals for the 2019-2020 for sale if anyone wants it. Brand new in the factory packaging, unused. Regular price is $59.95 but I will take less. Shoot me a PM if interested. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XRY7P8Z/ref=twister_B07XWW7CTV?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Yeah, every time it seems like I know more about my vehicle than they do. It takes me to educate them. Anyway, my truck is ready to be picked up. They said the new software that fixes the antilock brake recall also fixes the parking brake issue. By the way, if anyone wants to know what the servo noise is when you open up the truck door, the service guy says its the fuel pump priming getting ready for the push button start.
I went to pick up my truck at 5:30PM and, the service guy noted that he hadn't called me so that means they are keeping my truck. No call, no nothing to tell me that. I asked him how long are you keeping it? He said that it was a serious issue and it needed to be looked at. After asking if it would be into the weekend, he said no....so I don't know what the fix is or when I'm getting my truck back. Oil Change, tire rotation and brake recall fix is complete....just waiting on them to figure out the parking brake situation.
I just dropped my truck off at the dealer for an oil change and for them to address the antilock brake recall. I also noted that the parking brake is coming on by itself for no reason. The service guy noted "That's the first time I've ever heard of that." I told him it was all over the forums. I'll let everyone know what they say. I remember in my 2002 Silverado, I had an issue where I would hit the brakes and before I came to a stop, occasionally the brakes would "release" a bit and I would end up going 5 ft further before stopping. I complained to the service guy and he noted that he didn't know anything about that...and its probably because of my over sized tires (they were 1" taller than stock?). It kept happening and I kept going back in complaining that I was going to get in a wreck because of the issue. He would check the truck out and say nothing was wrong. Then I finally get a recall notice for antilock brake component malfunction. I guess I knew what I was talking about after all but it took a year of complaining. I hope its not another situation like that.
i appreciate the feedback...especially on the center console sides. At least I know that they do exist and they are in the kit. I'm definitely buying some when they get back stock.
It's not up right now for the bucket seat version...but I can send you a link to the bench seat version. https://www.amazon.com/CupHolderHero-Silverado-Sierra-2019-2020-Accessories/dp/B07ZJVVDZK/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=2019+silverado&m=A272AWK6PS9D1J&qid=1589486951&s=merchant-items&sr=1-1
Yeah, awesome idea, but not functional without something to keep things from sliding. They said that they would contact me when they were back in stock. I'll post something at that time.
I guess I'll answer my own question....apparently Cup Holder Hero sells these on Amazon but they are sold out at the moment.
Has anyone found any custom molded rubber inserts for the center console side storage on the 2019+? I see that full insert kits are sold on amazon for every storage area but it seems to lack the inserts for the side storage on the center console for bucket seats. Ironically, those are the only inserts I need out of all of them. Cup Holder Hero is the brand that is sold on Amazon...it just seems like they don't have anything for the 2019+ with bucket seats.
My parking brake on my 2019 RST has a mind of its own. I've noticed it can be parked in the garage for 3 days and all I have to do is open the rear crew cab door and the parking brake turns on by itself and engages. I can't for the life of me figure why that happens. I will ask them about it at my first oil change. So have we decided that this is a recall issue or not? Has anyone taken their new vehicle in and had the dealer fix this parking brake issue? I have this recall bulletin but I'm not sure it's the same issue.
Well, I'm not the only one that this was happening to. The first thing I thought was....which password does it want? I reset my passwords on the computer and was able to enter the password to get the message to go away. Hopefully it stays away. I'm not sure what caused this all of a sudden.
