    08 crew cab
  1. not familiar with them but a quick search about them, my opinion would be you pay for what you get. the only info i get about your vehicle was its a silverado and it has bose. what bose module did you use? did you utilize the high level or the low level outputs for audio out to the bose module? if you have had install experience seems like a Pyle radio would have done the same service for you minus the shipping charges.
  2. Adding keyless entry

    you can check to see if you vehicle has the factory keyless entry module and purchase a remote and have it programed, or aftermarket brand works just as good too with more range. as long as you buy the correct integration module for the aftermarket units its pretty easy. https://www.amazon.com/Xpresskit-Optimax-DLPK-Passkey-Interface/dp/B001FBFMM4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539196804&sr=8-1&keywords=DLPK&dpID=41jTFoCkfmL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch this module does not need to be updated/flashed for you vehicle, works right out the box just have a large manual to thumb through to find you vehicle info. they have other modules that are easier but require a "flashing" for you specific vehicle, the shops can do that for you. the "flashing" need to be done before its sent to you, you can not do it your self without a deal login. https://www.amazon.com/idatalink-ALCA-Remote-databus-Interfuse/dp/B001983S0Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539197123&sr=8-1&keywords=idatalink+alca&dpID=51nz4KUxkYL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Keyless can be done with out these modules but would be a headache.
  3. Overhead console

    sounds like you have 12v cause you said your dome light stays on. yes i would double check you diodes and make sure they are not backwards. both diodes should be coming off the door switch wire, one inline to prevent back feed and the second connects to the map light bulb/bulbs.
  4. SPEED SENSE|dk.GREEN / WHITE | |ECM *3 *3 ECM is located near the battery, down low, between the fender and the fan under the black plastic cover. On the 4.8L, 5.3L, and 6.0L, the tach wire is located at pin 10 in the 'red' connector, and VSS wire is located in pin 50 of the 'red' connector.
  5. Overhead console

    i believe the map lights are connected to a push button switch, are you connected to the input side of the switch or the bulb side of the switch? to achieve what your looking for you need to connect to the bulb side of switch for the lights to come on with dome light. if you connected to the switch input side, the switch breaks connection until the switch is activated. so in short, either connect direct to the bulb on the switch side, or the at the switch where it connects the the bulb. please properly fuse circuit/ diode isolate to prevent feed back to BCM
  6. Fog Light problem

    have you tried to swap with a known working relay? use a multimeter and test the fog light wire at the switch? orange wire at the switch if i remember correctly
  7. aftermarket remote start installed? test a grey black wire coming off the light switch for parking lights. it would be neg.(-) signal. Parking Lights+ brown + driver kick panel Parking Lights- gray/black - BCM, brown plug, pin B2 Notes: The BCM (Body Control Module) is under the driver side dash. It has 6 plugs in it, the purple plug is on the back. Hazards white - steering column, 5 pin plug
  8. Fog lights

    i had these in my 08, i liked them. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SZK1420/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. then my question would be where are you gonna find a button like that? thats why i suggested a donor assembly from a junk yard. unless amazon sells that button with the same dimensions and color and font i could post a link to amazon for you. do you know anyone that upgraded to an aftermarket radio? maybe they can donate a button for you.
  10. check out a junk yard for a donor dash assembly? maybe look for a electronics repair shop if you don't think you can repair. other than replacing whole assembly from dealer.
  11. best bet would be reuse old moldings. you can buy a rubber disc attachment for you drill and clear away old tape and apply new tape and re stick old color matched moldings https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018WG2XYE/ref=sspa_dk_detail_6?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B018WG2XYE&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=a54d13fc-b8a1-4ce8-b285-d77489a09cf6&pf_rd_r=T643JRHAMBB5BBNS456H&pd_rd_wg=rpix0&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&pd_rd_w=7skix&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pd_rd_r=cda34746-9f2b-11e8-af6e-0720243a5fcc done this to my old truck and inlaws truck, just takes time.
  12. is there an after market alarm on the vehicle? i would start off with checking battery voltage. maybe a weak battery. seems like an alarm is activating but never seen the whole dash light up like that. i have seen vehicles act weird when they have low voltage.
  13. I was rear ended 3 weeks ago. That was the second time I was rear ended in my truck. Got the call that it would cost to much to repair my baby and the insurance company is gonna total it. Went to the shop where it was sitting and pulled my personal stuff out and accessories I had installed. After I was done I just sat in it for a while thinking how much I really liked this one. I never really like the blue in the beginning but she grew on me and now it’s going away, I’m sad. She was paid off and I don’t think she rolled over 50k yet. I tried to look at the mileage but battery was “DED” dead. Time to figure out what I want next....
  14. if you had the viper remote on your person just hit unlock twice. depending on how the install shop programmed it, use the programming button with the key in ignition to get the alarm to shut off.
  15. Auxillary power junction box

    amazon search Fused power distribution block, many options depends on what kind of accessories your adding.
