And if I remember correctly Phil has a contact for the OEM mirrors at a good price and has the switch and makes the harnesses so it's kinda a one stop shop if you get them through him. Oh and you'll be helping a guy that's helped a ton of us.
Personal opinion here. I had DL8 mirrors and talked the dealer into tow mirrors without power fold. If I had it to do over again I would definitely get the mirrors with power fold. Even if I had to pay for them. Is it a big deal, no, but to me it would be worth it to have them. And if you're buying the mirrors and harnesses anyway go ahead and spend the little extra to get the power fold mirrors.
I don't see a remote start listed on GM Accessories website for that vehicle, so I guess they're right. What do you mean "they offered to install it but can’t"? Was the remote start install a pre-purchase agreement?
The factory prep package can't be added aftermarket. At least not that I can ascertain. Which hitch do you currently have? I have a gooseneck rail adapter for the Curt EZ-Lockr and it worked well with the Curt roller and A16. I don't use it anymore because I changed the hitch to an Andersen Ultimate aluminum hitch. If you're set on the turnover ball I'd suggest installing that in your truck and using the rail adapter you linked above.
I've thought about adding brighter lights to the interior of my truck, but haven't pursued it yet. So I appreciate you posting this. In fact I've thought about replacing the no-account glasses holder with a light fixture. Looking at the schematics for my truck, if you wanted them to work with the existing interior lights you'd pull power from the X61A junction box, connector X3, pin 29 (gray wire). That way the On-Off-Door switch would control their behavior. Now if you wanted to also control them with a local switch, you'd need a single pole double throw switch and wire the normally open side to X61A, connector X3, pin 25 (Wht/Brn wire). <EDIT> I just looked again and if you're going to put the lights near the overhead console you could pull power from X316 pin 21 for On-Off-Door switch power and pin 7 for local switch power.
Phil, I have a set of DPN mirrors and your harnesses. If I order the 1A or AM mirrors to get power fold, do I need to do anything except order a switch?
If you don't have a trailer hooked up, then I'd suspect moisture/water in the 7-way connector or in the under body connector. Spray some WD-40 in the connector to dry it out and see if that works.
Thanks for posting this Phil. I was about to order a set of tow mirrors form 1A, but I'll wait to see if this is resolved and if it isn't pretty quickly, I'll go with OEM DPN mirrors.
Does the original sales order list the mirror upgrade specifically as DQS or power folding tow mirrors? If so, then they have the obligation to provide them. If so, then I'd demand that the dealership have the parts department purchase the mirrors and either hand them to me or have them installed. I'm not sure who ADI is or why they're involved. I assume that they're a third party installer contracted by the dealership to perform sales addons. I bet they ordered the wrong mirrors and now don't want to be stuck with them.
2) If you've already made the deal on the DQS mirrors, they should provide them and not charge you any more. I still think you're way better off having them physically install the DQS mirrors that they promised and give you the harnesses. It's really easy to remove the door panels and swap the harnesses. Watch Phil's video a few times and follow it and you won't have any problems and I promise you won't break anything. Pick up a set of trim tools from a local auto parts store.
I would have the dealer install the DQS mirrors and give me the harnesses, and I'd install them myself. That's the easiest and best way to go at this point.
I also notice that Sirius drops a lot more in my Sierra than it does in the dw's Acadia or than it did in the Ram. It's definitely a radio issue and not a satellite service issue. I don't think these systems buffer the signal like others do, so they drop immediately upon losing signal.
No matter which mirror you go with, you're going to have to remove the door panel, so you might as well go for the gusto. I was a little apprehensive about removing the door panel due to issues from previous vehicles, but these GM door panels are extremely to remove and replace. especially if you remove them like Phil shows in his mirror video. There was no problem with the panels on my truck. I went to a local part store and go a plastic trim removal tool kit to prevent and scratches and they worked great. As I said in an above post. If I were doing it again, I'd go with the power everything. I'd even get the 1A Auto mirrors and send them to Phil to modify and install them. Once I let a little time go by, I may do that anyway.
