  1. Okay I had to check... it was annoying me. Per pgamboa it does stop on the release of the unlock button of the fob and then you can hold the unlock button again to drop it the rest of the way. It doesn't "vent" on the close however. It is full close on the press and hold of the lock button on the fob.
  2. So this does work well for the lighting. I did this for my windshield tint and it kept them from being on basically all the time. The only thing I would caution is it does seem to impact the automatic temperature climate control. This may be different from pickup to SUV but I can confirm that in my Yukon Denali this sensor is also part of the temperature sensor as well. I started to notice that the auto fan would be on more on cooler days after the truck would be sitting out and warmer in the vehicle vs actual outside temp. I believe the white goop in the sensor actually helps to control the rapid temp fluctuations. Think of it like skin or insulation. At any rate, I bought another sensor so I can have two... one with the gel and one w/o. I've gone lighter on the windshield tint and gone back to the stock sensor.
  3. Little late to the reply and have been promising Chris a post for the work. I had the HMI unlocked and BCM spec programming done on my 2016 Yukon XL Denali. I can't say enough about the support through this process. Chris answered all my questions (and I had a fair amount) without hesitation and no delay. They performed the work and had a quick tun around on both modules. Everything worked as expected and couldn't have been easier. I now have the unlocked HMI... mainly for the video in motion function for watching the fire tv, etc. The BCM spec programming is pretty cool as well. mainly for me was having a legit capability to have the fogs on with highs as well as the intellibeam still being functional. It's nice to be able to vent the windows as well with the key fob. Overall... I couldn't be happier. Top notch service and communication from start to finish. Now I just need to figure out getting the wire powered so I can turn on the backup camera while in motion. If it's something you're on the fence about... do it! I know Pgamboa did an in depth review however, feel free to ping me with any questions.
  4. Y'all need to check the welds in the area I posted. I had one spot weld that didnt exist. I spread it... put a fiber gasket between and then stuck some jb weld in the seam and clamped it for a day then painted and put the rubber seal back. Tick is 100% gone for a year now. The other place you can apply some fiber tape for good measure is where the door harness connector rests in that pillar. You'll notice it rattles. Basically, unplug the harness and then remove the female socket connector from the pillar and apply some fiber tape or whatever so the plastic doesnt move in the slot. But the ticking is most definitely the welds. Guarantee you have at least one that's not welded. It's obvious when you see it... there's a dimple but no weld. When the temp changes the metal expands or contracts. Go check it out and let me know if you have questions. Glad to help where I can. Btw... check the rear pillars if you have the suv... I had to fix that as well. The rear is a different location but you basically follow the procedure I posted and you'll be fine. Here's some crappy photos but may help... -First two pics are of the location of the missing weld on the sandwiched outer and inner sheet metal -third pic is where I tapped in a plastic wedge to open the gap a bit and insert a fiber gasket piece -last pic is with the gasket inserted and wedge removed Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Black mirror sold. Still have the silver mirror available. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Sale pending. If it falls through I'll update. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. Decided to sell as I'm not going to use. Used this for one oil cycle/change. Asking $25. Venmo or PayPal or cash if local to Dallas area. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Okay... I found the repair procedure. It's a PIT (Preliminary Information Bulletin) not a TSB. Regardless, the pdf is attached with pics. Hope this is helpful... PIT5579.pdf
  9. So I had this issue and was able to resolve it. There IS a tsb for it but I cant find it for the life of me and don't have access to the tsb database anymore. If I find it I'll post it... I'll do some searching. I'll do my best to explain so bear with me. Mine was on my 2016 Yukon XL Denali. Literally drove me to the point of insanity. Okay, so basically in the b-pillar there are two pieces of sheet metal sandwiched together. If you remove the inner panel trim pieces then take a look where the grab handles bolt on... it might be behind the door seal but you'll see the sandwiched sheet metal. Basically they did a shit job welding them and when it gets really hot (I'm in Dallas) the metal expands and you guessed it... plays that beautiful snare drum ticking melody in your ear. The tsb actually called for welding something in that area but essentially what the tech did was put a long bolt into the rear grab handle mount point and put a pry bar on the bolt and slightly pry that away and give a very slight gap. I'm talking barely pry... just enough to gap but it keeps those pieces from "ticking". Its not even noticeable. It would happen to me on a hot day after my truck was parked in the sun for about 6 to 8 hrs. I would hear that shit my entire drive home. Needless to say,its been 2yrs now and no more tick. Hope that makes sense. I'm pissed I didnt save the tsb as it has photos, etc. Like I said, I'll keep looking to see if I can find it. Hope I can give y'all back some sanity. The closest TSB I can find at the moment is for the 2019 Chevy Blazer but is basically the same issue. Awesome to see it's still an issue lol. TSB:19-NA-111 Attached I'll keep searching for the tsb relevant to the K2XX MC-10161899-9999.pdf
  10. So is there a way to secure this or is it just sitting there? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
