  1. Well, I just happened to see a MiG 28 do a... Uh, sorry Goose. WE happened to see a MiG 28 do a 4G negative dive. Where did you see this? Uh, that's classified. Started up on his six, when he pulled in through the clouds, and then I moved in above him. Well, if you were directly above him, how could you see him?Because I was inverted. repost fail... my bad
  2. speakers

    any combo of components will work together, the question i would ask my customers is what kind of music do they listen to, and go from there. the kickers are a good speaker if he likes to crank up the volume, the alpine/kenwood/infinity speakers are good for sound quality, simple speaker replace would go with pioneer. If he plans to upgrade the radio at a later date that would be a huge change in sound. As for more bass, a component speaker would be best but not for what you are looking to do, as the radio its self is not sufficient enough to power components.
  3. the door latch or the the lock motor? the sensor is on the door latch not the lock motor. if you know how to use a digital multi meter i would test the wires in the door boot. past experience i had was wires breaking in the door boot. but a TECH 2 would be faster
  4. i have installed a hand full of the Idatalink Maestro, i like it. everything in one unit no bulky harness or add on modules to try and tuck into dash. only issue was with a toyota, instructions said it took care of E brake, it didn't had to connect direct to E brake. If i was gonna upgrade to aftermarket i would go with the Idatalink Maestro. but at the same time depends on how many features you new radio can do. the Maestro would not be coast effective if getting a entry level radio.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
