Looking to add a controller and leaning toward P3. Anyone tried to mount in center console under the removable cup holders vertically? For trucks with captains seats with fixed center console. From what I read vertical is okay. Not sure if wiring long enough though.
The 1 month should have been the top tier, had that as well, never used it. Basic was nice. Id reach out to OnStar first about the 10 years of Connected(used to be called Basic) plan and then Chevy customer service if needed. 10 years of connected should apply to that purchase, if it was bought new. This was the last update to policy from my understanding and speaking with onstar last month. I have to pay 14.99 now for the app and diagnostics email after my 5 years basic expired. Both were pretty nice to haves. http://gmauthority.com/blog/gm/general-motors-technology/onstar/onstar-plans-pricing/onstar-basic-plan-info-price/
Fixed mine a month or so ago myself, ended up using the ACDelco condenser. I had nothing left in mine, so I rented the Oreilly pump and gauge set. Pulled vacuum, it leaked down so confirmed leak, I charged with dye to confirm the spot. Leaked out in a weak, but dye did its job. Same spot as everyone else on the condenser. Bought the ACDelco part, got the bracket for the lower line just to prevent a leak there although mine showed no signs of issues. Installed both in a few hours, could be done quicker though. One of my cooler lines went right together, driver side I want to say. The passenger side gave me a little trouble but after a little manipulation and trial and error it went together. Rented the Oreilly pump and gauges again. Charged the system, one can with dye just in case of future leaks. Added some ACDelco oil. Been cold a month or so now, with no issues. All in with condenser, oil, and refrigerant Id say around 300. Prior to this the most I had done was add a can with the quick connect simple systems auto parts stores sell. Really not a hard job to do. AC seems intimidating, but if you can wrench a bit its not bad. Could have messed this up 3 times and still come out ahead of paying a dealer 1200 bucks. Adding to this, I added some trans fluid to the condenser at install, instead of after through dip stick. When I checked cold it looked good and after a drive looked good warm.
jrob56 replied to aseibel's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraReviving this, my 2014 just had the Basic Plan expire. Looked at plans on Chevy site and Basic not offered. Started a chat and was told it is 14.99. To reactivate press the OnStar button in the truck. Laughable! Can I just watch an ad when I start my truck?
I saw one post where this was exaggerated, but no confirmed owner doing it that soon. I may go aftermarket though, given the volume of issues with GM condensers. Think many DIY's are going this route.
My understanding of these is they cannot be cleared. These once set, stay on, until the vehicle sees the condition is fixed and turns it off. Had a similar code P0013 on my wife's equinox. Set to permanent as it is the camshaft position actuator code. Replaced the solenoid and took it for a short drive and the light cleared itself.
The sticker on the radiator cover is in kg, just type that into google and it can convert it to oz for you. You can definitely do it all yourself, pulling vacuum and charging too. Only issue is recovering anything left in there now, but Im sure if you call around you can get some little shop to do that cheap enough.
Thank you, exactly what I was going for. I saw it hold steady at -24 ish and leaked down to -22 after an hour or so, but hardly definitive. It was enough to jump start the recharge though, put a can with dye in and clutch started up. With AC on max I was sitting at about 26-27 low and 150ish high maybe a tad lower(going off memory). These pressures sound okay? Going to get under tomorrow with the light and give it a once over.
