  1. I love everything about my 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT 4WD except for the low idle RPM (500) when in park or at a stoplight. The engine doesn't cut out, but it acts like it wants to and the cabin vibrates just enough to be extremely irritating. I've talked to 2 dealerships about the issue and asked if they could increase the RPMs to approx. 600-650 RPMs, but they both declined saying that 500 RPMs is the factory setting and therefore no need to change. Any suggestions? Would increasing the idle RPMs eliminate the slight vibration and provide a smoother idle? All suggestions are welcome.
  2. Hey camGTP...no need to be a smarta%% as I just forgot that there are 5 lines up to 1000 vice 10. But thanks for the math lesson.
  3. Thank you to everyone that responded to my question. Seeing the picture made it very clear. This is why I come to this forum for answers as you guys always clear things up for me.
  4. I always turn my auto stop off when I start my truck, so I don't think it's that. If the first line is 500 then that would be the answer. I'll have to look next time I drive my truck, but aren't there 5 lines before 1000? Mine idles between the first and second line which led me to believe that I'm idling at approx. 200 RPMs. Can anyone confirm the first line is 500?
  5. My 2020 Silverado 1500 5.3L V8 idles between 100-200 RPMs while in park and stopped at a light. I think this is extremely low but when I called my dealer they said not to worry. I thought 500-600 RPMs was normal. What's the right answer?
  6. Thanks for the idea. I ordered the straps and will give them a try. I'm surprised more folks aren't complaining about this as the constant banging drives me crazy.
  7. Any suggestions on how to keep the front seatbelt holders from constantly banging on the pillars every time I hit bumps? They aren't secured and they swing freely. Very annoying! Anybody try wrapping the plastic piece with something soft to muffle the noise? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  8. So at the end of the day, should I keep the Range DFM disabler I bought and put in my 2020 Silverado LT or do I not need it? I'm not mechanically inclined so I rely on the experts on this board to provide me insight and opinions.
  9. I just bought a 2020 DC LT for the reasons stated above. I had a 2018 Crew Cab but realized it was just wasted space in the cab as I am by myself 99% of the time. I also like the full size bed vice the smaller version I had on the Crew Cab. Most importantly, I got the solid back window vice the slider so no more leaks. I am loving my truck!
  10. Well, looks like I'm moving on from the leaking window club. I have a 2019 Silverado 1500 4x4 that originally started leaking 2 months after I bought the truck. Was told it was fixed, but 11 months later, started leaking again. Last week, took it into the dealership for repair and they gave me a 2020 Silverado 1500 for a loaner. Loved the loaner so I decided to buy it. It has a solid back window so no more leaks (fingers crossed). Good luck to the rest of you as I hope that Chevy does the right thing and finally comes out with a permanent fix for the windows.
  11. I had a guy detail the inside of my 2019 Silverado 1500 and he put a slight scuff on the passenger's side of the dashboard, which he denied of course. I tried for over an hour to rub it out just using my thumb and actually got most of it out. However, when the sun hits it just right I can still slightly see the scuff. It's a line about 5 inches long and it's going to drive me crazy if I can't make it disappear. Any suggestions?
  12. My leak was "repaired" about 4 weeks ago on my 2019 Silverado 1500 at 5k miles. It's been raining a lot here in Memphis recently and so far no more leaks, but it sucks that I have to check my back seat every time it rains just to be sure. The sealant looks pretty good along the seam, but they put some scratches in the plastic panels beside the rear seat. The dealership also completed the 4 recalls at the same time as the leak, and now my seat belt holders in the pillars rattle. Highest in initial quality awards...give me a break!!
  13. I just picked up my truck from the Dealer today after they "fixed" the leaking window (not replaced, just put sealant under the spoiler). They also fixed the 4 recalls now listed for the 2019 Silverado. I am going to wait a couple of days before I take it through a car wash to ensure the sealant has plenty of time to cure. I am not very confident the "fix" will work, but I'm hopeful. I will give periodic updates. Thanks to everyone on this board for providing insight on this issue as it proved valuable in my discussions with my dealer.
  14. I dropped off my 2019 SILVERADO LT at the dealer today to repair the rear window leak. When my service tech entered my truck information into his computer he laughed and said "Looks like I'm going to have your truck for a long time." He said that there are 4 recalls on my truck and he needs to fix them all. One is for the seat belt pretensioner, one is for brakes, I forget the third one, but the fourth one, which is new (Dec 19), is rust on the rear bumper. WTF?? Brand new trucks already experiencing rust on the rear bumper? I'm speechless. And I just thought I had to worry about a wate
  15. UPDATE: I stated earlier that I had a small leak so I put a small towel on the back of the seat to keep the drips from reaching the floor. Raining pretty hard here in Memphis so I went to check on the towel and it is soaked!! I guess I will be keeping extra towels in my truck as my appointment with the dealer is a week away. What a disappointment. Also, someone asked about my previous post what I meant by a "collapsed dash" on my previous "new" Silverado (less then 3k miles). I was driving down the road and the dashboard on the passenger side fell. Literally just fell. The glove box w
