    2019 Silverado H.C. C.C. 6.2L S.B. N.S.B.
  1. Serice Steering Column Lock

    I had it happen to me a few times and as you said, it was after I used the phone app remote start. My truck did a software update around 1/29/19, and I have not seen it since and I still use the app for remote starts.
  2. I had the same problem with my truck since the day I bought it. My truck also has the latest software and I was still getting the error at least once every 2 days. So yesterday I was thinking about the error and it dawned on me that the truck might be trying to write on the SD card to initialize it. On every SD card there is a little switch on the side that locks/unlocks the card for writing data on it. I slid the switch from where it was to the opposite position and put it back in the SD slot. I have not seen this error for over 2 weeks now.
  3. I also turn my dash lights all the way down when driving at night. I noticed it the first time I drove at night and the seat heater button did not light up just as outlined in the above posts. Just make the dash lights slightly brighter and the heater button lights will turn on. The seat heater stays active even when the button lights are off due to the dash lights being at their lowest setting.
  4. I have the same squeak under my dash. Like yours, I think mine is coming from the same area. I cannot reproduce it with out driving so it requires something under there to flex. So since it is a squeak I have been looking at the rubber and hard plastic parts. No fix yet.
  5. I have a 2019 high country with 22" wheels, stock exhaust, 6.2L and the 10 speed. Once in a while on a 55mph highway with the cruise control on I can feel a very slight vibration from the active fuel management system being used. The rest of the time it is not even noticeable. I went for a 100 mile straight run on the interstate last Saturday and it was smooth all the way doing 70-80mph.
  6. Trail boss custom

    The wiring harness, connectors and the fuse/ power requirements could also be different. You can check with the dealer to see if the part number on the wiring harness is the same, if so you could have some luck in the swap if they fit your existing grill/fender opening.
  7. So my truck did an update yesterday by itself while it was parked outside my work. I saw a notice on the DIC that said an update was ready to be installed and I could not do anything with the truck after it started. I said why not, probably some good software fixes, so I hit OK and went in to work. Now it seems like the climate control blower motor is missing its high setting and doesn't run as fast as it used to. Anyone else notice this? There also seems to be some glitchyness with the intellibeam after the update also. Of course is has been -30 degrees here for 2 days. That always seems to wreak havoc on new cars electrical systems, but I think the update messed with my climate control system.
  8. It is the same brightness all the time. It turns on whenever the parking lights or main lights are on. The brightness of it in that picture most likely because of my phone taking the pic. It is not bright and projecting like a foglight but is definitely noticeable at night. I took that picture with just the running lights on.
  9. I looked it over thoroughly and the only thing I could find is that they do not completely clean out the aluminum chips from whatever machining is done on the roll out cover. I just used compressed air and blew it all out and no more chips. Quality is good on everything and as for making the bed watertight I am sure if you were meticulous in the installation with the weather-stripping you could get it 99% sealed.
  10. iPhone ringer volume

    I have the same issue. It must be a bug between the iPhone IOS and the chevy system. I will try the disable you were talking about. I also noticed that when calls came in I could hardly hear them on the chevy system when bluetoothed in. I turned the volume up on the truck and still it was not enough. Then I raised the volume on my phone via those side buttons and it was super loud. Hopefully disabling those button will fix that issue too.
  11. It works perfectly with the power tailgate. Here is my step by step for putting mine on. The directions that come with it make it more difficult than it needs to be and there are a couple things that need modified from their directions. Open the box and unpack everything. Keep the box until you register the cover with BAK for the warranty. It has all the labels with the serial numbers on it. There are 2 weather-strips rolled up, a 3/4" and a 1/4". The directions say to use the 3/4" all the way across the headwall but when I went to tighten the cover down the 3/4" was way too tall for the cover at the headwall. Clean any dirt off the headwall with alcohol or wax & grease remover. Now put about 3" of the 3/4" at each end of the headwall starting from the plastic cap inward. Keep the weather-strip on the farthest rearward flat part of the headwall. Install the 2 rails on each side of the bed like the instructions say, push them up against the headwall and clamp them in. Now use a razor knife and cut off the 3/4" weather-strip that is not under the rail. Now take the 1/4" weather-strip and put it on the headwall between the 2 rails. Keep the weather-strip on the farthest rearward flat part of the headwall. Now take the bedcover and roll it out on the rails and remove all the packing on it. Take the end of the cover an put the 4 bolts in the slots and put the end of the cover in place so the bolts go through the brackets at the end of the rail. Now put the washers and nuts on the bolts, just hand tight, they will get the final tighten later. With the bed cover all the way flat and the tailgate down, stand in front of the tailgate, lock the tailgate end of the cover down and pull the cover towards you. now close the tailgate softly by hand. You will see that this will push the bed cover towards the cab and put it in the right place for sealing against the tailgate. Lower the tailgate, get your tools and crawl in under the bed cover to the headwall without moving its position and tighten the 4 nuts that hold the headwall end of the bedcover to the rail brackets. Now crawl out of the bed and test everything. It should all work and seal up nicely.
  12. Some places don't like to do "custom" work. They just want the insurance company checks for collision. I like doing the custom work, it pays good too.
  13. I picked up a Revolver X4 bed cover for my truck earlier this week. This is an aluminum roll up type cover with a matte black vinyl top covering. My last cover on my 2015 Silverado was a 3 panel flip type, It was good but limited my use of the full bed, took about 22" of the front of my bed. This Revolver X4 is well made and super easy to install. I had it done in 25 minutes by myself. Rolls up and back out easy, locks tight and looks good. You get almost full use of the bed except where the cover rolls up, It only takes about 8" on top of the rails. Sorry for the dirty truck but the weather is crap here, 2 hours cleaning gets ruined in 2 seconds. I do give it a good spray down every few days to rinse the salt off, Illinois REALLY likes throwing salt! If anybody is thinking of putting one of these on themselves let me know. The directions are wonky and I have a much better way to do it and its faster.
