  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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....
  6. 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.
  7. Auxillary power junction box

    amazon search Fused power distribution block, many options depends on what kind of accessories your adding.
  8. if thats the case then you would hard wire your switched to a acc./ign. for radio turn on. there should be a switched power in the junction box where you would wire a trailer brake harness, to left of the brake petal. make sure you fuse that wire also. things you will lose with that plug would be the door chime and turn signal "click", don't know if you noticed that the sound for turn signal goes though speakers on these newer vehicles. so yes that plug would work. look at this https://www.amazon.com/Axxess-AX-GMLAN29-Retention-2006-Up-Vehicles/dp/B01M3T2YQ7/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1531329470&sr=8-1&keywords=AX-GMLAN29
  9. your vehicle uses data communication to turn on your radio, there is no switched power. a integration module is needed to keep data communication in you vehicle. it is low voltage class 2 data. gm started that in 03 on the trucks. you locale best buy or amazon has all the parts you need. and remember best buy price matches amazon.
  10. isnt that plug is for trailer brakes? routed close to where the aux power for trailer pig tail is
  11. sounds about right but the light shouldn't be on if you did it right. integration modules for that year/make are cheap now, with the addition of adding keyless entry if you have power locks. orange in color wire shielding, two white smaller wires inside, cut one of those wires, find resistance by using multimeter to key switch side of cut wire to 2nd wire that was not cut(and be within 20%), then connect resistor to the BCM side of cut wire, then connect to 2nd wire that was not cut. the other end of cut wire that goes to the key switch is taped off and not used.
  12. Bad Ground Somewhere

    yes hard to say, could have shorted out internally the fuse block its self. you could have a shop trouble shoot by the hour or look towards a junk yard for a replacement fuse block. which ever is easiest on the wallet. for future reference, yes if you tagged to fused side on the fuse block you would have popped the fuse thats protecting that circuit. but you tagged on the constant(direct to 12v) side of that fuse port. i do not recommend that connection because you can push back the connector that makes contact with the fuse and intern need to buy a new fuse block again. there are plenty of accessory connection points you can use if you ask around. that junction block to left of brake pedal that you would plug a trailer wiring have accessory ports i would recommend.
  13. 09 Silverado 1500 Question

    i tried this with my truck back when i was still working for dealer, yes they bolt up but they did not plug in for me. i didn't have the right door switch panel that they plug into. the switch had the plugs for power windows locks and power mirrors but not the correct plug in port for turn signals. before you start i would suggest looking at the switch panel for the mirror to plug in.
  14. Bad Ground Somewhere

    what did you have the switch you were installing connected to? there was no fuse inline? i would start on the circuit you connected the switch to since you said they made contact with each other. is this on your 09 1500?
  15. Right rear door ajar message

    you tested the ground side of door latch? did you test the bcm side of door latch?(at the latch) leave door open and use screw driver to latch the door latch closed and get reading. verify voltage change, no change, replace latch. if latch works as designed check other modules that connected.
