  1. Run a search on the troubleshooting section here - tons of posts.....various fixes - but electrical shorting is main issue
  2. Got 42K miles on my KO2's, rotate regularly like stated but they are getting louder now. Same 20" tires, in D range keep fronts aired up to 45PSI and rear at 42PSI all year - they are wearing in great here in MI. The stock GY's where junk at 25K
  3. Mine did it once - after several no starts I tracked it down to the "known" negative battery cable crimp (2014 Sierra) - replaced a year ago, no repeats to date.
  4. Received my notice in the mail yesterday - it states "failure to follow recommended oil change intervals could contribute to this condition." I can already hear the excuses for a sub-par part failure being blamed on oil change recommendations between manufacturer (oil) and DIC.......Too - I do not have the DTC set as of yet however, the condition is present. I have some time before this "fix" runs out - so I will let the garage monkeys figure out the technique before I get in line to change out mine
  5. My '14 had bad corrosion in the sockets - $41 @ Rockauto for a new wire harness - problem solved....
  6. I have read lots of these things failing on this site, here is what I found: Harness needs to be replaced - ordered from rock-auto - anyone else see such corrosion inside 5 years? I could not believe the dirt that is thrown at these bulbs, once I removed tail light assembly. This will become a yearly service - remove, clean and reapply dielectric! 34K Miles - right side blinker indicator "malfunction comes" on - simple, replace bulb (top bulb), lasts a week. Second try, scrub clean with electric cleaner and use good dialectical, install new bulb. Now the lower bulb goes out, same thing - all rusted up, this time cleaning and new bulb do not work. Top and bottom bulbs have rusted the terminals away inside the sockets. Just sharing my findings
  7. 2014 - did the same thing. Put a new negative cable on, no issues for 9 months now. Bad crimps in some harnesses, some battery posts are smaller in diameter, so clamp wont tighten down......give that a try next
  8. Drilled and slotted on the bosses Acadia - LOTS more brake noise - I would not put these on my truck. I went with best from Rock Auto, so far great after a year
  9. Went thru the same issues back in the spring - replaced the negative battery cable......bad crimps in many of OEM's installed at factory. Fixed the issue, no problems since
  10. Used the lithium ion schumacher several times now on a couple vehicles including mine (2014 battery vs. neg cable fight).....holds a charge for a long time and fits under the rear seats. under $100 at super store here in Michigan
  11. Try resetting the ECM - disconnect the neg cable for a couple minutes. Might blank out a fault this is prohibiting the start
  12. Similar issue - changed out negative cable (bad OEM crimps)......working fine for a couple of months now. New battery at first did not solve issue. Too, I hear of park/gear selector switch at tranny being an issue as well.
