  1. Very interesting. I was not aware of that. The local GMC stealer is very easy to deal with. I think I’ll stop by and have them hook it up. Thanks for the info. ?
  2. The Duracell is on my short list for sure. The 15.5 was with only the radio on. I thought that seemed a little high. I think I will listen to chem_man and see if I can get it tested, just to make sure. Just don't want to go into winter unsure. Thanks!
  3. I have a 2011 Sierra SL with a 4.8L. Battery age is unknown as it was there when I bought the truck. Over the weekend we were moving our kid into their dorm and I sat out front with hazards on and nothing else. When I went to leave battery didn't have enough umph to start they truck. Jumped it and started right up and was fine stopping a couple times on the way home. I let the truck sit overnight and then checked the battery. It read 13.3V and then 15.5V after starting the truck. No problems since. Was this a fluke or is the battery giving a warning shot before winter? I will probably just replace the battery before winter, but just wanted to know if I am missing something. Thanks!
  4. With the 2011 it has to be done at the dealership. Just my luck.
  5. I have a 2011 GMC 1500 SE with an aftermarket autostart (so I was told when I bought it). Over the weekend, they fob stopped unlocking or locking the doors. It just clicks in the engine bay, sounds like clicking under the fuse box. The autostart works, but no doors. I only have one fob. I replaced the battery in the fob, checked the fuses and the locks work fine with the door buttons. Any idea where to go from here?
  6. Thank you very much. I plan on fixing it, but financially it will be at least a year or two. I am just trying to keep it looking decent for the time being. It seems like the combo of cleaning it up with the navy jelly and then the Boesheild may get me where I want to be for now.
  7. Thank you very much. I will pick some up and give it a go. I know it's not going to be fixed, but if I can get a couple years before the rust can't be covered by the flares, that would be great.
  8. I know the rear fender rust has been covered many times, but couldn’t find an answer (if there is one) for this. I have a 2011 Sierra with the fender cancer. I purchased fender flares for temporary (or longer) cover. I know once it starts it will continue to spread. I am just wondering if sanding, filling, rust inhibitor and primer would do much of anything to at least slow it down until the inevitable rust appearing above the flares? At that point I will get it fixed the right way, just can’t do it now. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  9. Nevermind...drilled the bolts out and did bolt/lock washer.
  10. I had to replace my power steering cooler. Took the plastic cover off under the hood and then the 4 bolts that attach to top. All 4 bolts snapped off. I am going to drill them out and replace them, but I can’t seem to find what size they are and I only have 4 heads. Anybody know or is there a better way than drilling them out? 2011 Sierra SL 1500
  11. I need to replace the tires on my 2011 1500 SL 4x4 club cab. I know the tpms is set at 40 psi. I was looking at load range C. I don’t haul a ton, just home improvement and maybe a smaller trailer. I got got an offer that sounds very good on these: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Pirelli&tireModel=Scorpion+All+Terrain+Plus&partnum=67TR7SATP I can get them just under $130. They are SL (I assume that is standard load). The max inflation is 44 psi. Opinions? Thanks ?
  12. Thank you. I will try that first. Is the ECM a big fix?
  13. I have a 2011 Sierra with a 4.8L. The CEL came on this am showing P0056, P0161 and P0060. They are seem to go back to the HO2S Heater Control Circuit (Bank 2 Sensor 2) and heater circuit malfunction. I am going to get under and check the wires and such first. Any advise or other things I should be looking for? Thanks.
  14. I have my 2011 SL 4x4 and it has a couple bubbles under the paint above the rear wheels. Very tiny at this point. I was thinking about sanding them down and trying to fix them before they get out of hand. I figure my paint matching won’t be wonderful so I was looking at putting smallish fender flairs on to cover it up. Has anybody done this and what flairs look the best on our trucks? Pictures would be awesome. Thanks.
