  1. The flipped wires was the problem for one side. Still struggling with the other. Got some batteries for my voltmeter ( I blame the kids for leaving it on). Had to put the old bulbs back in both sides for now. Hoping to get back to it this weekend.
  2. I just got a kit from fastheadlights, and when I got it all back together the lights wouldnt light. I feel like since neither side worked I must have done something wrong, but, its seems pretty idiot proof, plugs only go in one way for everything. I've read some wires are sometimes backwards, what do i need to check? Any suggestions?
  3. Is there a new code? Order page says this one is invalid
  4. Any reason you wouldn't want to do the Android auto/apple carplay retrofit from a 2016+? I just had th3magpi3 do Android auto retrofit, video in motion, and rear camera in motion. Prices were very competitive for the programming and you can source the hardware (hmi, radio, USB hub) from eBay or full kits from some of the vendors. This should WELL below the $2k you listed for the aftermarket kit.
  5. th3magpi3 just completed this in addition to Android Auto retrofit, video in motion and the regular vin programming in my 2015 Sierra. When driving and pushing the rear camera icon button, it will pull up the video with a 25 second timer. After 25 seconds it will go back to the home screen. When in Park there was no time limit. The harness that was provided for the rear camera was very good quality and looked like it was OEM, and super easy to locate the connections. I briefly tested out the video in motion and it worked once I formatted my USB HDD to NTFS. It recognized MP4 and M4V files, but not TS files from my home DVR, which I kind of expected. I hadn't played with the video features prior to to having VIM enabled so the formats it plays may be common knowledgeto others? Everything is working great and Chads support was fantastic. I saw a couple minor issues after the install, which I came to find out were perfectly normal and corrected themselves with a few power cycles I'll post a video of it hopefully in the next day or 2. Thanks Magpi3!
