Throw the removable metal key in an old school magnetic hid-a-key box somewhere outside. Take the fob and wrap it in aluminum foil and stash anywhere inside. the foil will block the fob signal. I've done this for years and has worked the 4-5 times ive needed it. Especially for road trips where can extra key is good peace of mind when out of town.
I agree with you. I came from a 14 with the basic key fob app avail for free for 5 years. Was pretty annoyed to find even the basic part of the app not avail unless you pay on the 19. That said, the 9.99 is a package, just not advertised. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
No. Only if in park. A common way to avoid the vehicle shutting off while idling is to pop the trans into neutral and keep your parking brake on. I wouldn’t do this, but it works. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I see others have replied to you as well, But i was not referring to the "tonno" brand. I bought the "access" brand, and bought their "tonnosport" cover. it is very much for the 2019 new model, and it fits great!
Access Tonnosport. $278 on amazon, part number 22020369. Amazon description is "ACCESS Covers 22020369 NEW". the listing is vague but i cross referenced the part number from Access's website where the cover is like 80 bucks more.
I mentioned the tow truck because that's generally who uses that trans release button i mentioned. even without a tow truck involved, the release i mentioned could be used to shift out of park... for any situation requiring neutral with a dead battery. again though, i dont know if our trucks have that. i just know ive seen this on many automatics over the years. especially with push button acc/start.
most automatics have a little transmission release button too. i didn't know about it until we had our 370z towed a few years ago. the tow driver said its there just for those situations. I'm sure our vehicles have one somewhere. not positive though.
They're definitely a pain top get off. not hard, but annoying and tedious. once you figure out the angle and tools for each of the 4 top down bolts, it moves faster. for me, it was frustrating and time consuming, but once you get a method down for each bolt, it goes faster. i probably spent a little over an hour total getting them off, but a lot of that was getting back up off the ground to get tools from the garage. the combo of box end wrench, and a socket/wrench with different extensions does work though. going back on was much faster. i scuffed mine up very well with a sanding sponge and painted them with high temperature paint, but it started flaking within a few weeks. it was more of a trial to see if i liked how they looked and will be taking them back off to get powder-coated soon. this was one of the few mods that non-car guys at work commented on and complimented. I will say that even scuffed up, the brushed steel/aluminum look was more desirable than the stock chrome. at least to me.
i appreciate the reply. the chevy link states they are vinyl. you mentioned yours are plastic. i prefer vinyl as i don't want a raised plastic object with visible edges. yours looks the best in my opinion so far though. love the black on black.
You just described my TB. It has a few options, but overall more of a "stripped down" LT TB.. for MSRP of 52 ha. I went into it wanting the convenience 2 and tech packages, but the dealer discounted the one i bought by almost 7k with little haggling back in early feb, so i bit. with my 2014 LT trade, i ended up financing under half the msrp and was really happy with the options on the 19 in the end. I didn't consider other trims as i really wanted one i didn't have to modify suspension for once, and i love the black front and lack of chrome, the the TB was really the only one i was considering. No regrets at all.
when going on long roads trips, i always take a spare fob, just in case. Ive found wrapping the key fob in aluminum foil and throwing it somewhere in the cab blocks it from being picked up by the vehicle. i haven't personally tried it with the 19 chevy, but it worked on my focus ST, 2007 vette, 370Z, and now my focus RS. I'm pretty certain it would work on this as well. haven't gotten to test it yet though.
