Same here. The dealer did a "Human Interface" update 3-weeks ago when the truck was in for service and my connection issue got worse and to top it off the service writer said I should not do any of the updates on my iPhone as that will cause the CarPlay to not connect. I don't use the bluetooth because then the CarPlay won't connect at all. I am using an "Apple" cable as at first they said that was my issue. Frustrated that I am having so may connection issues, guess I am not alone on this one.
Removed from my 2016 Double Cab Silverado to install Tow Mirrors. Power adjust, heated. Mirrors are in great shape. $125 plus shipping for the set. Located in Waukesha, WI (suburb of Milwaukee) if local could arrange to meet rather than ship.
Last week my 2016 5.3 heater blower started ticking so they replaced that, while it was in the shop the tech diagnosed a tick under the hood as well and replaced both the left and right fuel rails i believe, fortunately I was still under warranty. There was a service bulletin for it, when I get home I can pull the info off the service invoice.
Heading to Sturgis this year and towing my dad's 26' toy hauler with (2) bikes. The trailer weights 5,300 lbs empty with the bikes and gear should end up around 7,500 lbs. Thinking about installing the Firestone Ride Rite air bags (link below) in the rear of my 2016 Double-Cab 1500 4x4. Is this this a good plan or is the truck equipped well enough from the factory to handle this towing set-up? http://riderite.com/Ride-Rite Product Detail
Thanks for all the info. Have been pulling my hair out over the lack of consistent CarPlay in my 16 Silverado. Even had the dealer look at id during last service and they said the system was current and "couldn't replicate the problem." Based on the version numbers provided they were wrong. Also glad to hear Apple is opening the infrastructure to allow the other applications in CarPlay.
Recently when using the remote to unlock the doors I noticed that the front passenger door doesn't unlock with the remote key fob. I hit the unlock button once to unlock the driver door than quickly again to unlock all the other doors. All the doors unlock except the front passenger. The lock works fine with the lock/unlock buttons in the truck as well as the auto lock/unlock when putting the truck in gear and then back into Park. The issue only seems to be with the Fob. Any thoughts on this are appreciated, trying to save a trip to the dealer, truck details below. 2016 Silverado LT Z71 Double Cab 5.3L, 4X4
Really want to add these to my 1500 as well, tow a lot and just plain looks good. However I am very nervous about cutting holes in the roof and possible future leaks. I like the Dremel idea, thanks for sharing Jaychevy81!
gkuklinski posted a topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMI know that CarPlay can only be used when plugged into the USB port in my '16 Silverado. I also have my phone connecting to the truck via Bluetooth. Should I not be doing both? I noticed that when a mesage comes in get both the CarPlay and Bluetooth notification and when using Spotify sometimes it plays via the Bluetooth and other times via CarPlay?
Another area to tap is the bottom of the B-Pillar, I had a similar issue with my '16 Double-Cab when I closed the Drivers door there was a rattle/vibration that I could replicate by tapping the pillar near the floor. Ended up being the seat belt mechanism, replaced under warranty and the noise went away.
