  1. I'm thinking about the weathertech. Are there any clips involved? Anything other than putting them in the channels? I have the LTZ and they finally recently made for this trim level. Something to do with the chrome trim took them so long to figure out. Any case, I'm thinking about them. Sound like you like these.
  2. Yes. That's the feniex bracket. I'll try and grab a pic of mine. I have the fusion. It was extremely hard to get in place, but doable. You can take the screw out, be very careful with opening the tab for the screw, but then there is no obvious way to tilt or maneuver anything to get it to loosen up. I barely was able to inch the bracket under and into place. I would love to know how the visor clip is removed. Would make it so much easier to install. Hopefully you got past this by now, but I'll snap a pic and post if I can. The other bracket for the other side of the visor is easier to figure out, but a bit complicated still. Take a pic or two before it comes all apart. Again, hopefully you got this by now. I got a couple of pics. Driver's side.
  3. I have a 19 LTZ and still running v805.1. No updates it keeps telling me. I sure hope there's an update. Hoping to fix the bugs in mine.
  4. Let us know. And which side if you can too. I just called my dealer service manager to get the ball rolling again on this yesterday. Waiting to hear back when he investigates how they want to tackle. I might be able to point him in a direction if this holds true. They first tried replacing my tailgate camera. Now every now and again, I find the tailgate push button assembly popped out a bit and have to push it back in. I guess a weakened tab from prying it out. I mentioned it on my last visit and they couldn't reproduce the issue. ??? Replace the dam thing! I had three pictures and showed them when I dropped it off. Another reason I don't want them to start taking the truck apart to replace this and that without having an idea what they are trying to fix here. I'll end up with rattles and more inside when they start prying the dash apart to replace the inside I'm sure.
  5. Am shocked (shouldn't be) that this functionality is not by default. Or there is not a switch in the bed for the lights to toggle on and off. Lights are pretty useless most of the time because they aren't on. I'll watch this and see if anyone has a good mod for this.
  6. There is a tech bulletin on this behavior. They call it still busy (booting up I guess). The check for this is to wait 45 seconds to shift and rule out the issue of quickly shifting. I call BS on this. I can let mine boot up for several minutes, not even shift and reveal the blue screen. The shift only reveals the underlying issue I believe.
  7. Sucks bad. If I had the time in my life, which I don't, to go play back and forth with the dealer to get this fixed, the truck would be in there every day at this point. I have noticed the following. start in the morning. let warm up a few minutes. gives time for all the electronics to be happy, but shouldn't have to. don't have to shift at all. just go to the camera screen option, blue screen. point being don't think it has anything to do with shifting to or through reverse. doing so only reveals the issue at hand. leave it on the camera screen (blue with message) until some random time during my 30 minute morning work commute, it wakes up. then seems to function ok. park at work. go to lunch. random if going to blue screen. if blue screen, very quick less than 1 minute to wake up. leave work for day seems to work ok, but can randomly throw blue screen with very little wake up time. All that said, seems to be worse in the morning when sitting overnight. possible booting issue after sitting overnight. Of course shouldn't be the case, but something in the boot process seems to hang and cause this. Rear view mirror camera screen is fully functional at all times. So I at least know that one is working properly. Again, if I had time... I need to get this into the dealer to check out from my recent back and forth with Chevrolet support. Just don't have time to futz with this not working and frustrating because it is a safety issue. I had to back out in a bad spot the other night in the rain, messy weather at night, tons of activity, and blue screen. No help from a perfectly good tool I should have had access to.
  8. Tried to file a complaint with Chevrolet. Got a case and someone who is working with my dealer to get them to check into my issue. What? I can work with my dealer and piss them off every other week with a new appointment to have them fix it... I'm looking for a tier 2 or tier3 or whatever person who can understand what this is doing to speak with and possible fixes. I work in software support all day and find defects in our software to address. This smells of a software defect of some sort to me, but what do I know. I'm playing nice right now, but very pissed off that something like this is not being dealt with properly. They are supposed to call me back with a dealer rep to work with to resolve on Monday. Can't wait to see what he knows about this issue. Couple of things I suspect and curious about. I have the Technology package which includes the surround cameras. I'm curious if it has something to do with this package option. I drove a loaner without this package and backup camera was 100%. I'm thinking the difference in this package option is either putting too much stress on the system, overwhelming the computer, or something of that nature. It's totally random, but if I leave this screen on, after a period of time, again random, it will finally wake up and work. I timed it on my way to work last week at about 30 minutes. Then it worked just fine. Then turned off the truck to stop and get some breakfast and blue screen again for about 2 minutes, then it woke up just before arriving at work. Where in Long Island are you? Wife was born and raised in Huntington. Good luck to all having this issue. I think it's some sort of software defect GM will have to address. I doubt it's hardware related.
  9. Been having this issue since purchased in May. Dealer can't figure it out. Getting ready to file a complaint with somebody. Very annoying. Blue screen of death every morning and there's a bulletin about starting up and shifting too quickly into reverse without computer booting up fully. This is not the issue. GM needs to fix whatever crap they put in these trucks.
  10. Looks good. I've got my visor lights ready to mount. Any tips? Mine are Feniex.
  11. I get something weird like when repositioning in a spot backing in on occasion. Maybe has happened about 10 times now.. I'll put in drive again and there is a horrible hesitation and then bang drops into gear. Dealer hasn't been able to reproduce. I think its a pressure thing or something. In any case, shifting from reverse and forward vice versa, will sometimes do it for me. Frustrating because I bought this truck for a transmission issue on my old one.
  12. Just my 2 cents. I have an LTZ with the tech package. Recently had to drive a loaner LTZ without. Completely different truck. I drove a 98 K1500 for years and never had any cameras, but in just a few short months, Don't know how I would do without some of the cameras on the tech package. The all around and the views down the side have helped more than once while parking or in really tight areas or drive thru's with tight twists and turns. Certainly not a necessity, but really helpful at times. The HUD is cool too. When I had the loaner, felt kind of naked so to speak without.
  13. So another related question. I noticed on a recent loaner truck, the temp gauge is 210 like yours. Mine has the technology package with the different gauge cluster, more digital than actual gauges. My temp is like my old 98 K1500 around 190+/-. Strange they would put different thermostats in these trucks as they go down the line. Has anyone else noticed the 190+/- temp? On my dads old 2004 Suburban it is 210. Seems like they've set them at 210 for a while now. Just seems odd mine is reading around 190.
  14. I had a 98 K1500 with Anderson quick connect jumpers and a winch. Wanting to set the quick connects up on my 19 Silverado as well. Any advice on how to connect to battery? I see never answered the question and I think OP was right, the 175 amp connections look like a good candidate. I also need to connect some LED lights for first responder and assume to make connection to battery here on these posts. Still getting to know my new truck and understand the different connections, etc. So much different that my old truck.
