    2017 Silverado 1500 LT 5.3L
  1. Window Auto Up Feature

    It's an all around mess. It would require switches, programming, and I believe motors (the motors have to support feedback for auto up). GM Upfitters has wiring diagrams you can look through. It's a digital signal from the driver's side switches, to the BCM, to the other switch, then to the motor (if I'm remembering correctly). I was looking because I'd like a single switch to control all the windows, but didn't figure out a good way other than running wires to all four motors.
  2. I'm looking for something for the rear window for the same reason but can't find anything. A tip though, I have these for my side windows: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Safe-Fit-Safe-Temp-Cling-Shades-Extra-Large-2-PK-2-0-PACK/44965620. They just cling to the windows and I cut the little temperature thing out allowing full use of the windows. I just have no desire to stick a bunch of them across the rear window.
  3. I've had good experience with 1/2 ton trucks and weight distributing hitches. I'm not sure how you're attaching your chains, but an easy way is to hook up the trailer and then jack the trailer and truck up, hook up the chains, then lower everything. You can measure the rear wheel wells with no load and then adjust the chains to where you're at the same height with the trailer attached.
  4. Ha, I have 19k on my 2017 Silverado, that I bought in September. 30k on a two year old vehicle is nothing. Typical average mileage is 12-15k/year.
  5. I bought an OBDLink MX. It's not a cheap Chinese knockoff (costs around $80). It also supports multiple CAN buses without modification and switches. It works really well.
  6. It's going to deal a lot with resonant frequencies of a lot of parts (driveshaft, axle, transmission), anything directly tire tied to tire speed. There's a thread on here where someone grenaded their driveshaft when they overrode the speed limiter. Not to mention liability on GM's part. To my knowledge, there's no where in the US you can legally drive 98, so GM puts in a limiter above legal limits to CYA.
  7. That's a pretty standard price across dealerships. Ford and GM both use programmed keys, I don't know about FCA but would think they would. Safety is why they require two keys to do it yourself; otherwise, anyone you lent a key to could make their own. With that said, since FORScan is available for Ford's, they can be programmed without two keys. Unfortunately I've been unable to find a GM equivalent to FORScan.
  8. Air temperature has been having an effect on my MPG. I've been getting a 2MPG drop on the highway from temps dropping to at our below freezing.
  9. Turn signal and brakes are on the same wire on trailers. On a four wire trailer hookup, the wires are left, right, park, and ground. Plugs with more wires just add brakes and power.
  10. Backup Camera too bright

    No effect on daytime viewing.
  11. Backup Camera too bright

    Tell the dealer you want this TSB performed: #17-NA-269 - Rear Camera Screen Bright At Night - (Sep 13, 2017) It will make a huge difference. I can see it off my right side mirror now.
  12. My tip, just stay home, but then again I've always lived in the South and if it's icy everything closes anyways.
  13. Owner's Manual Pouch

    My 2017 Silverado came with a paper manual, and a couple other booklets, but didn't even come in a Ziploc bag. It was all just sitting in the console.
  14. Most vehicles don't have LATCH for the center seat, so you have two options. One, use the outer seats. This is what we've always done. Yes, technically, they'd most likely be safer in the middle but I don't know that the difference can be quantified. Also, if you get a second child, one of them (or both) will have to be in an outer seat. Your second option is to use the seat belt to install the car seat instead of the LATCH connections. This is what you'd have to do if you needed three car seats in the back seat. If the current car seat is rear-facing, this advice is for later, but on a forward facing seat, the upper tether is a little different on these trucks. There are loops at the top of each seat, you actually route the tether through the loop at the seating position the seat is in and then connect it to an adjacent loop. It through me for a loop and I had to read the manual *gasp* in order to figure out how they worked.
  15. At least on the Chevys, Texas Edition and All-Star Edition are the same thing except for the badging on the truck. For an LT, power driver's seat, remote start, LED fog lights, 5.3L, and I think I'm missing something else. Edit: I found a listing: 10-Way Power Driver Seat Adjuster Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control Remote Vehicle Starter System Electric Rear-Window Defogger Manual Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column 110-Volt AC Power Outlet Texas Edition Badging Trailering Package Heavy-Duty Rear Locking Differential Thin Profile LED Fog Lamps Theft Deterrent System
