  1. I’m hoping these are more reliable than the normal kits. Since this is the whole assembly, and it feels decent in my hand, maybe it’ll last longer. I’ve gotten them installed, and the output seems really good. It’s been snowing here, so they won’t be clean, but I’ll edit this post in a couple minutes with a picture.

  2. That could be the bcm I suppose, but it’s more likely the igniter or ballast. In these trucks, the igniter and ballast is integrated into the bulbs. They’re d5s bulbs. One thing you could do is swap the bulbs from side to side. If the problem moves it’s the bulb, or if it doesn’t, it could be a ground, relay, or something else upstream. Or, as you said, perhaps the bcm. I’ve never heard of it doing that though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Ah, I think this only works for the Silverado lights. It was working as late as last night. Actually, there’s a few other ones it works for, but I don’t think Sierra is one of them [emoji853] I’m not sure how much longer it will go, since they’ve been advertising as a Christmas promo. I tried to post sooner, but there was something up with the site when I tried. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Not sure how much longer this will last... But for some reason theretrofitsource.com allows stacking coupons, and there's two 25% off coupons. A little over $700 out the door. https://www.theretrofitsource.com/chevrolet-silverado-xb-led-heads-B-LF542?quantity=1 Promo Codes: xb25xmas xbmadness Mine just arrived, so I can't comment on quality yet.
  5. If I were you I’d look for a fuse that is tied to the RAP (retained accessory power) system. Since you’re using a relay, it should introduce very little draw to the circuit. I’m not familiar with the box under the hood, but I’ve done the same tap in the driver side fuse panel inside the truck. There’s probably other options too, that’s just the one I’m familiar with.

  6. It’s probably not there, but something to try is going into the options on the DIC and making sure all of the info screens are turned on. I know TPMS is mandated in vehicles after 2007 or somewhere around there. HDs are in a different class and aren’t always subject to the same laws though. That’s why there’s no epa rating on the window sticker, for example. As far as how the sensors know where they are... when you rotate them, you go into the DIC and hit the option saying you rotated them. Get out of the truck and take the tpms relearn tool and find which marker light is on. Usually driver front first, I think. Go touch the wheel and the horn will honk saying it learned that position. The next light will turn on. Do the same for that tire. How it would work for drw, I have no idea. Maybe a blinking light for interior tire or something? The tool is like $20 on Amazon. Good luck!

  7. If Siri is working directly on your phone, it could be something with the trucks microphone. Or something else on your truck. It doesn’t sound like a phone issue any longer. I don’t use Siri for calling in my truck, I use the Chevy assistant or whatever it is. Anyway, a little while ago, it would act like it couldn’t hear me. Kinda similar. I actually brought it into the dealer, and they restarted the radio. That seemed to fix the problem. (They actually unplugged my dash can and my blamed it on that, but continued working when I plugged it back in.) All of this to say, try and restart your hmi unit in the truck. I’m not sure of the exact procedure, but it doesn’t fully shut down when you turn off your truck from my understanding. Unhooking the battery or pulling a fuse jump to mind, but maybe there’s a more elegant way?
  8. I’ve had similar problems with them in my truck since the beginning. I got two replacements, but it must be something from my trucks side. Every 10 or so times I started my truck, one of the lights wouldn’t fire. It wasn’t only one side, but when I had the bulbs replaced, the problem persisted. I went back to the OEM after a month or so. They work 100%, every time for me. Not sure why I kept having problems. I got them through a group buy, and I felt like I was being a jerk when I had problems after 2 replacements, so they’re sitting on a shelf. I enjoyed them when they were working.

  9. As others have said, this sounds like an issue with your phone. Short press on the talk button gets you to the built in voice commands, long press goes to your phone for Siri to handle. Some things you can try if you haven’t already: Turn on airplane mode, then turn it off. Check the security settings and make sure Siri is allowed while the screen is locked. Try using Siri by using the button on your phone, outside of your truck. A hard reboot probably couldn’t hurt if nothing else sheds any light on the problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. If you go to the dealer, double check they didn’t just add resistors and said they flashed something. Not that I’m skeptical or anything... just jaded. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ive actually had this happen as well... Mine would “pick up” when I hit the button, but never hear or understand me. Really annoying. So it’d be telling me what I can say, go ahead, etc... I’d be yelling at my truck. Handsfree calling still worked, so it wasn’t the mic. Brought it by the dealer and after 30 minutes they came back and said it was fixed. They had unplugged my dash cam and it started working. I’m not one to argue with success, but I ended up plugging it back in after leaving and I haven’t had a problem since. Who knows. I think it’s likely a coincidence that it started working right then. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Just an update: after getting ios12, the problem has disappeared. Maybe it was a problem on Apples side. I’m having other, non-CarPlay related issues... maybe they can update it anyway while it’s in the shop... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Mine just arrived... it’s v8.4 green. Works on my 16, so I figure I’ll wait to send it in until they have an update for the 19s in case I ever decide to upgrade. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. There are options out there. It should be super simple for an installer for the most part. Some of the alarms interface with the truck and have it do all of the work. I believe xpresskit is what’s used for directed, viper, Clifford, etc. You can look up the website to see the install instructions and capabilities. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have the 107sx and my only complaint is the nipple size... very hard to keep a tube attached in my experience. If I sit and babysit it, no problems. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
