  1. Yeah, welcome to the digital age. I'm an analog guy living in a digital world...
  2. As I doubt GM did anything with their supplier to resolve the issue I'll let them peel until my warranty is nearly expired and have a new set installed then. At least this will extend the life of them before the "new" set starts to peel. FWIW, my dealer informed me this is a known issue as they've already replaced a number of sets. I believe there aren't enough people experiencing a problem for GM to take any action. It's cheaper for them to just replace them as they show up in the service drive.
  3. Piece of garbage infotainment system. I've done every "trick" suggested to resolve this password issue to no avail. The "Do Not Remind Me Feature" doesn't work. My radio intermittently outputs/plays music from two different sources at the same time. It shouldn't be this hard to get a functioning radio. I'm getting a new one installed Friday under warranty but I SERIOUSLY doubt any changes have been made to improve it over my current radio. Just absolute garbage.
  4. Thanks. How did you notice that as you can't see them when you're sitting in the truck? FWIW, I'm not concerned as I disable the auto-stop as part of my starting the truck routine. I turn the auto-stop off in less than a second after I push the ignition start button every time I start the truck..
  5. FWIW, I installed the Rough Country leveling kit on my 2019 AT4 and there are no clearance issues with the CV boot. LOTS of clearance. Make sure you put the bolt heads up when installing the lower strut mount bolts.
  6. The coating which I believe gives the plastic chrome the black chrome look is coming off both my fog shrouds. FWIW, truck is a 2019 AT4. It's covered under warranty but I'm curious if this is a known issue or did I just get a "bad" set. I can't imagine I just lucked out and got two bad ones. Seems to me like if both of mine are peeling that I'm probably not the only one?
  7. If you read my post you'll see I deviated from my planned route and drove directly to my dealers service drive as it's intermittent and you have to get it to them when it's occurring or you get what you got from your dealer, "Failure to Replicate" the issue. The hard part in these issues is having it occur when you're available and close enough to your/a dealer and hoping they'll pull somebody from "the back" to come and see it happening while truck is running in their service drive. Very frustrating. Taking a video is a good technique which I've used a number of times to demonstrate intermittent problems. Also stated in my post is a new radio was ordered and delivered today. Now I get to have my dash dismantled by a dealer tech. Lovely.....
  8. Ooops, no I won't be going the Ford route as you have. I just clicked on the link and saw the Ford lights you used cost $80 for three lights. I'm too cheap to spend that much for 3 lights. Especially since they are cosmetic items...
  9. Confused yes. Hurt feelings? I'm puzzled why you'd think my feelings were hurt. It just seemed strange you'd repost exactly what you already posted in great detail in the thread. Whatever.... I will say I like the Ford lights you used better than what I have and you used on your first go around. If mine fail I have 6 spare ones to use and they only cost $13 for a box of ten lights. The quality seems to be fine for the application but only time will tell. If I have issues with mine I'll go the Ford route as you've done.
  10. I can guess why they only made ten of them. I imagine there are still 9 available for sale as I can't imagine anybody else willing to buy or drive one. IMHO, thing is hideously butt ugly and looks like it was pieced together by a 16 year old and a J.C. Whitney catalog. I feel sorry for that poor truck....
  11. Yeah, I read and saw the various pictures that in you shared in detail in your various posts in this thread. Are you sharing new/different info than what you've already detailed in this thread? I'm confused on your repost and am curious if I'm just missing "new" information you're sharing?
  12. I just realized I should have posted this in the Troubleshooting sub-forum. Sorry. I reposted it over there but am not able to delete a/this post. I can edit my posts but there doesn't seem to be a delete post option?
  13. My 2019 AT4 has the OEM package provided "base" stereo. Intermittently when I try to play music from my iphone either thru bluetooth or "wired" via Apple CarPlay the stereo plays the output from both the radio AND the external device. If I'm listening to the radio and use the touchscreen to select my phone as the source of input the stereo will play BOTH the iphone output as well as the FM/AM output. I can hear both sources coming out the speakers at the same volume. If talk radio is on I can hear the talking as well as the music I've selected from my phone. In other words, the stereo is not switching off the radio output when the second source is introduced. It does this about once a week and cycling the truck off and on does not reset of resolve the issue. Cycling the stereo on and off doesn't resolve the problem. It usually "fixes" itself overnight. I parked it in the driveway last night with problem occurring and this morning all was well. This has been happening intermittently since I bought the truck about 1.5 years ago. It occurred last night on the way home from work so I drove directly to my dealer to let them hear this strange phenomena. They got their electronics tech to come out and look/listen to it and he was very surprised stating he'd never seen this before. He checked for updates or bulletins to no avail. They went ahead and ordered me a new radio for replacement under warranty. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
