  1. This is the only post I have come across that accurately descibes the problem I am having with my 5.3 2016 Silverado. I have had it to the dealership 3 times and they cannot replicate or determine what is causing the issue. It is not consistent as it has happened 3 times over a 4 week period. Please let me know if you have found the root of the problem yet. Thanks in advance.
  2. I get the logic on GMaps and Waze however there are still dead areas in the country for cell service where you will lose GPS. I realize that on some phones you can download the route prior to making the trip but that is for predetermined trips. Another point is that not everyone has opted for the unlimited plan so if you go over your monthly plan it racks up pretty fast. The update is pretty expensive through the GM site, around $160 but I decided to get it for our east coast and west coast trips.
  3. Had a leak in my roof, thought it was the moon roof but the dealer said it was the cab center brake light. Haven't had it set out in a downpour since, time will tell!
  4. Thanks, hopefully it will end for both of us.
  5. So, now one month and 442 miles past warranty, the screen went black while driving home. I was listening to the radio at the time which kept working. I was not pushing any buttons but did a few seconds earlier change stations using the touch screen. The screen did recover after pushing the on/off button (maybe more than once) but it did show a ghost double image for a few seconds before fully recovering. Is this a typical early symptom to total failure? Has anyone else experienced this?
  6. So the 16 has the good old fashioned gas cap and stationary grill vents, other than that what is it about the 16 that you miss?
  7. I have a 2016 Silverado LTZ/ Z71 with the 5.3 and 8 speed. 35K miles and it has been fine so far. I traded a 2013 LT and it had frame rust issues. The factory tires were pretty good for mileage, not with traction, got Nexen AT's. Will have to see with the 16 but good so far. Love my truck.
  8. Nice looking truck. The color looks a lot like my tungsten metallic 2016.
  9. In late 16 I got my 2016 LTZ SB CC Z71 for less than 45K. Also had LTZ plus package and 14K miles. Those seem pretty high but maybe not there. I live in the upper midwest.
  10. Replacing pump.. In warranty, they offered a loaner since they had to order the pump. It will be dropped off at the house when done today as a trade for not taking a loaner. Thanks, good advice and troubleshooting.
  11. Thankfully it is still in warranty. Thanks for the heads up info. I made an appointment yesterday after talking to my non dealer mechanic that installed the trailer brake controller. He confirms what is said here, not the culprit.
  12. Hi all, Service Brake Assist is showing up as a pop up window. The brakes seem to be fine in normal driving but when i am in reverse they seem mushing and unresponsive. I first noticed this after having a Curt trailer brake installed. The very first time was when backing in our camper, I almost had to stand on the brakes while backing in. Forward, just fine. I would like to hear from you guys as to whether the trailer brake install is the issue. i am not seeing any leakage. The truck is a 16 LTZ CC Silverado. I can take to the dealer but I want to determine if the trailer brake unit is the culprit or if it is coincidental.
  13. The Peragon looks like a great cover, the video on the website shows drilling, is that into the truck bed? Also, what about hail? I was hoping that the Access for a 2013 would work but it is becoming pretty clear that it will not.
  14. Hey guys, Access model number for the 2013 short box is 12309 and the number for the 2016 is 12319. I am thinking they both have the same bed size, 5'8". Has anyone used the tonneau cover from a 2013 short box and the put it on a 2016? I have a new in the box 12309 that I never put on my 2013 1500 crew cab short box, now I have the 2016 1500 crew cab short box. Will it fit? I don't want to take it out of the shipping box until I know. Thanks for any help on this.
