  1. Good job! When I installed mine it was winter and the first button I pressed every time. was that one . Enjoy!
  2. You may or may not have power to the 2 wire plug under the column. Pgamboa told me to test it with the key on and I think he said engine running I don't remember, and use a test light to see if you have power to it. Fortunately I did have power. I see you have a 2014, you may have to run power. Lets hope for the best and you can plug and play as well. Good luck. Have to say being that its been colder than ....here its the first button I push now after I start the truck. I side with the people that believe it was money well spent. I also had fun putting it in along with a few choice curse words.
  3. I got my Heated steering wheel in, it took about 3 hrs some cut up knuckles from running the wires. I found the hardest part was trying to get the air bag off. I tried the phone idea from Tinkering Fox but the phone kept falling to the floor. Then getting the right size screwdriver, not to long and not to short and the right angle to slide the screwdriver in. The wire spring that holds the airbag on has more tension than I thought so I wasn't pushing down hard enough "Till I got angry with it" and when I got one side freed up then turned the wheel to do the other side the first side popped back in, this happened a couple of times pissed me off, but after that everything else went as TF's video showed. Anyone that's gonna do the swap watch Tinkering fox video a few times it's a big help!
  4. So the weights are the only thing different, in that case I would make the swap. I also got in touch with autowoods as you suggested and like you said he was very helpful. I asked him what the difference was between the two {Denali- Sierra and Silverado) he told me, and I am paraphrasing ;that the sierra , denalis had more bling ie.. chrome- design .This Is the message he left me: "I do have heated wheels in black, but they were designed for Denalis and Sierra. They are fully compatible with Silverados and suburbans. Would you like me to pull one from warehouse and send you some pictures? " He didn't mention that he had any wheels for the 2500. I will wait and see what he digs up from his warehouse . Thanks for the help in getting me a little closer to my goal.
  5. Yea I seen that one but I really like to get the black one. Like ss502 said I should just wait and get what I want and not settle not sure what the cocoa would look like with the black interior. It may look like [email protected]#t
  6. Thanks , you are probably right. I should have pulled the trigger a month ago when they were everywhere like on ebay and just about everywhere else I looked, but at that time I was doing other mods and didn't think the market would dry up that quick. On the other hand airbag clock springs seem to be a dime a dozen. I guess the waiting game begins. If anyone should happen to see one in their surfing give me a heads up. Thanks in advance.
  7. Looking for PN 84353110 heated steering wheel There doesn't seem to be one for sale anywhere. I have tried dealerships , GMparts direct ... they said they don't know when they will be available again. Has anyone put on a cocoa one on a black interior truck and if so how does it look? Tacky? Unique? or just wait to see if or when they start producing them again?
  8. I got my truck back after 4 days of them trying to find it. It turned out to be the flap behind cab there are 2 . One behind driver and one behind passenger side, mine was driver side. At first they thought it was the window. I had the tech show me. He said they have since Improved the design. It was still under warranty.
  9. I got the truck 3 weeks ago and I am having a water leak issue. I found it because I was putting on the AMP power steps and was running the wires up through the grommet in the floor when I noticed the driver side under the carpet was soaked, carpet stayed dry just the sound deadening material was soaked . I checked all other doors and this seemed to be the only one. This happened after running through a car wash. I am taking it to dealer today to have it checked, I will update.
  10. Yes, Tinkering Fox. watched yours also both great videos. Some how you guys make it look easy. Movie magic? Some how I think I will have to end up doing it twice, because I ran the wires through the wrong holes or something like that. But thanks to both you and Tinkering Fox and many others that without your help a lot of people would still be scratching there heads.
  11. No 2016 sil 1500 lt. You have a 1500 lt correct? Did you have 2 plugs?There were a couple spots I couldn't quite hear what he said but may have said his was a 2500 . I will watch it again. Thanks for clarifying that for me.
  12. Trying to find on forums and YouTube but haven't come across info that seem relivent to my application . I like the great video on you tube on how to install the heated steering wheel very helpful and to the point but when he hooks up the driver air bag there is only 1 plug I believe his truck is a 2015 and the clock spring 23381964 says it fits 2014-2017 but shows 2 plugs going into the air bag. So without taking my wheel off to find out if I I have 1 or 2 plugs going into my air bag did anyone else ask themselves this same question? Do you only need to hook up 1 if you only have 1 and let the other just hang there?
  13. I don't want to assume so I will ask if I am buying the right heated steering wheel w/o crash alert Black PN 84353110 and clock spring PN 23381964? and also a question regarding the orange tab on the clock spring. what is it for and once you remove it , if you had to take the spring back off from some reason does is make for harder reinstallment? I know that's 2 questions.
  14. I got the steps on without cutting them. There is about a inch of clearance between the step when folded up and the bottom of the bed. I stood on the end and they didn't seem to flex at all, I weigh about 220. The only problem I am having is after the truck is turned off for more than 5 min I have to disconnect the obd2 connector and re plug it to get the boards working again? AMP support closed on weekends and west coast so I will give them a call to see what's up with that unless someone here has a solution.
