  1. 2016 Silverado will be 2 years old on July 1st. Wife and I were out tonight and when we left the last spot, AC took a minute to fire up which I noticed to be unusual. Also, the white backlights on the dash are not lit up on the AC controls, also unusual. AC finally starts to blow but it is not cold. What I find confusing is that there was no build up to this failure. I would expect a failing AC to gradually build up to a total failure, not it working literally 1 hour prior to it not working. Based on this, my optimistic side would like to think this is a simple fix. AC systems are not something I’m good at diagnosing so I’m at the mercy of a mechanic or the good folks of this forum. My pessimistic side is ready to throw in the towel on this truck. The fuel pump went out at 35,000 miles and now the AC. I have a front end chatter started after installing the front end level kit. It’s been looked at by 3 different shops and no one can tell me why. This truck has been nothing but problems. The AC is my major concern because I live in south Texas and AC is as important as fuel here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just talked to my wife about it. She took her brand new camaro there for a brake issue and they did the same shit to her. She brought it in for noisy brakes at 5500 miles, they "fixed" the issue. Then when the noise came back, the brakes were out of warranty. She brought it back and demanded they fix it and that she wasn't paying for it. They complied and fixed it right and the problem hasn't been back since. Sounds like I'm calling the news if they don't fix it. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
  3. You guys hit all the points I told the service manager. I said I brought the truck in for this problem while the truck was under warranty and you replaced a battery cable. Really??? I believed you the problem was fixed but it wasn't. Now your saying its something else. He even said a code for the fuel pump came up, something with the voltage, but it was working properly. Now that its out of warranty, it's not working properly and you're demanding hundreds of dollars you fix. I don't buy it. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
  4. I have a 2016 silverado. Here the last couple weeks truck has been losing power while cruising. Feels like when you hit the governor and the engine "dies" then comes back when the speed is lowered. Only has happened 3 or 4 times. Took it the dealership and they replaced a negative battery cable. At this point the truck still had a warranty. Problem persisted so it's back at the dealership. Now they're saying it's the fuel pump and the truck is out of warranty. Seems a little fishy to me. Only put good gas (Shell) and fill up at quarter tank. Thoughts?

  5. Have any of y'all with bad reception called or complained about it? I made a video of the shitty reception and put it on Chevy's Facebook page. I got a response in less than a day
  6. Ok good, I'm not the only one. My wife has a 2017 Camaro and her reception is awful too. I too am considering canceling my subscription. iHeart radio is free and is almost the same type of stations.
  7. I've been wanting to do this mod for some time. That silver grille is clean as hell. Looks like I have a weekend project
  8. Anybody else experiencing in and out reception with Sirius XM? I have several stations that go in and out in the same places all over town (Houston). Antennae is not being blocked and nothing in interfering with the signal. They're like large black out areas and I keep finding more. I have contacted Chevrolet and Sirius via their Facebook pages. Chevrolet seemed way more concerned about the problem than Sirius but they were also deflecting the problem onto Sirius instead to trying to fix the problem themselves. Sirius only offered to give me a $10 credit towards my next bill. I feel this is a Chevy issue and not Sirius because my 2010 F150 I had before my Silverado had zero issues with reception.
  9. T-Rex Grilles made mine. They were actually more than the lights!
  10. I have these on my 16 Z71 They're the Rigid Radiance
  11. No anti-theft, just the nut and bolts that came with the lights. No matter what method you do to make some anti-theft on your vehicle, if someone wants what you have bad enough, they're gonna get it. I mean how useless are wheel locks now a days?? You can buy a whole kit on ebay with like 20 different keys. Only anti-theft method I have is an angry dog and a 9mm if I'm lucky enough to catch the bastards in the act.
  12. I installed the same lights but different brackets. Mine are made by T-ex grilles but equally as expensive, I think more than the lights! I haven't seen anyone else with these type of mounts which is why I did this mod. I was hoping to get more output but I found there is a lot of reflection off the hood and a lot of forward light is lost, kinda how a roof bar does. I had a 52" led bar on my F-150 above the windshield and lost so much light from it bouncing off the hood. I think the only way to go for getting any output from light bars is to put them in the grill or on the bumper on like on a bull bar. A 20"-30" Rigid Radiance on a bull bar is gonna be my next move.
  13. I de-badged my truck and they made those things to never come off! I used fishing line to get the pieces off and rubbed the residue off with my finger. This technique worked on my tailgate but I had to change tactics when I got to the Texas Edition emblems on the door. I ended up taking it to a guy and he wrapped masking tape around his thumb to get the the beginning of the adhesive off. I tried it and it actually worked really well! He then used a rubbing wheel with some compound and removed the remaining residue.
  14. I've ran thru 4 or 5 tanks with both settings and same results returned m every time. I wonder if this is something I should bring up to the dealership? Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk No sunroof Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
