  1. Purchased. I keep 'em until they die, can't be repaired anymore, or are stolen.
  2. Thanks. Very familiar with k0bg's website, although I admit it has been a while since i perused it. Again, thanks for the input and the referral to refresh my brain cells!
  3. Thanks! And I do hear you on the battery life! Appreciate the input!
  4. Hi, This question is for a 2022 Silverado LT (refreshed interior) with a 5.3 L V8. I am getting ready to run some 10 gauge red/black zip cord through the firewall on the passenger side and connect it to the battery. This is my first experience with a vehicle with a Battery Management System. I will be connecting the red part of the cable directly to the positive post of the battery, but I am unsure if I should connect the black wire directly to the negative battery terminal without going through the current sensor, or should I run the black lead through the sensor ring? At most, the transceiver would be running 100 watts output and according to the radio manufacturer, the radio pulls about 22 amps when it is putting 100 watts RF into the antenna. Thanks!
  5. The thing I noticed is that the volume of the music off the USB thumb drive is lower compared to the radio (AM, FM or Sirius). I don't care so much about the screen being "locked" since my MP3s are on shuffle.
  6. If you belong to AAA consider looking into the AAA Extended Warranty. It covers everything the extended GM warranty covers and is several hundred dollars less for the same level and length of coverage. I just purchased a 2022 Silverado 1500 Crew LT 4WD with the 5.3L, and the AAA Platinum level Extended Warranty/Vehicle Service Contract for 7 years with a $100 deductible was under $2200.00. I had a AAA Platinum Ext Warranty on my 2004 TrailBlazer and had zero problems with claims. The dealership that did the work also commented on how easy it was to do business with them.
  7. Here is mine - 2022 Silverado 1500 Crew LT 4WD with the 5.3L V8. We picked it up just over a week ago. Replacement for a 99 Silverado 1500 with 32,000 miles which was stolen.
  8. You might want to check that the ground wire for the fuel pump is intact.
  9. If you have 4WD, there will be a knob to the right of the steering wheel on the instrument panel with markings like 2HI, A4WD, 4HI, and 4LO. Also, here is a link to the owner's manual if you did not get one with your Envoy: https://my.gmc.com/content/dam/gmownercenter/gmna/dynamic/manuals/2003/gmc/envoy/2003_gmc_envoy_owners.pdf
  10. If you have an android device I suggest getting an OBDII Bluetooth Dongle and then spending another $5.00 for the Torque Pro app. I have been using one of these for the dongle: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011NSX27A/?tag=elightbars-20 This under $20 combination is extremely flexible, customizable and does more than I can describe. It will even let you set up individual vehicle profiles.
  11. The first thing I would do is to clean all the ground connections including the battery cable to battery terminal connections. That many DTCs points to something common - like the ignition switch (which you already changed) or battery. You also want to get your battery load tested to make sure it does not have a bad cell, and then make sure it is completely charged before trying to start it again. While you have the battery out, check the battery cables to make sure that they are not corroded internally by looking for green stuff near the cable ends. While you are at it, have your alternator tested to make sure it is not faulty in terms of a bad diode or that it is putting out more than 20 mV AC ripple on the DC voltage.
  12. I agree on the getting the TYC from rockauto.com. The only thing I'll add is that I purchased the CAPA certified TYC headlight assemblies.
  13. Have you tested the fuel pressure? You might be getting fuel but are you getting enough and is there sufficient pressure to go through the injectors.
