  1. If you go to the parts counter and have them look up a truck and get the part numbers of the black emblems and order them separate you will save money verses ordering the accessory kit.
  2. Under the stated warranty, it does state that you may have to pay. We do not charge a diag while under warranty at my dealer unless it is something that has been modified or is something of the customers fault. It is all up to the dealer weather they charge though...
  3. Dealers do not have to ignore the Magnusson Moss Act. GM has clearly stated what is not covered which makes them in the clear for not covering "alterations" "What is Not Covered Routine maintenance Slight noise, vibrations or other normal characteristics of the vehicle Damage due to accident, misuse, insufficient maintenance or alteration."
  4. We will not deny warranty for such mods unless if what ever you have causes a problem that warranty would cover. Other words if you have a shock bad and you have have a lift kit that is non GM then that shock would not be warranty. If you have a radio out or bad lifters your lift kit will not void those repairs.
  5. 6.2 just for the fact it makes me smile when I drive it......
  6. That is correct. In a warranty deal the only thing I need is records that service was done. Does not matter where it was done or if you do it yourself. The only thing is if you do it your self along with a log of when and mileage is proof where you purchased oil and filter. The brand does not matter as long as it meets OEM specs.
  7. 90 percent of the time its a blown #63 30 amp trailer fuse
  8. If it sound like a old power steering pump kind of whine it is the idler pully and will need a new belt. Right now the pulleys are back ordered.
  9. Oil pressure bypass is a different pressure is the key to the 63E.
  10. That is correct. You will find some dealers that will do it at a courtesy but most will not. They may give it to people at the window not to argue with a customer also but the tech will want to get paid one way or another. We just had 2 new trucks come in for Road Atlanta and had to install exhaust and CAI on both. The labor ops included in the packages are what we use to get paid through GM being they do not install the add on accessories at the factory even though you can order the truck with them. Never has made sense to me with which GM pays us to install stuff that a truck was ordered with and just toss the old parts we take off.
  11. That is wrong, GM only pays us as a dealer if we put the CAI system on that was ordered on a new car job card. Or if it was ordered from the factory with the kit. The labor op you are referring to is labeled as "Air Cleaner Kit Installation and Engine Control Module Reprogramming with SPS" with 1.0 hr of labor. The labor op is not for just programming if you put it on yourself.
  12. You got lucky, 99 percent of the dealers will charge for a flash unless the labor was paid for them to install it.
  13. The labor op that is included in the instructions for the dealer to charge gm for the kit and calibration is only if the truck was ordered from GM with the kit. Then the dealer installs it and charges GM for the price of the kit and labor which is included in the price of the ordered truck. As they do not install them at the plant. If you bought the kit from the dealer and paid them to put it on, the price of labor quoted in the accessory book is with then cover programming also. If you bought the kit from a wholesale place and had it shipped to you and you installed. You would then have to carry the supplied authorization supplied with the kit to a dealer to have it programmed. That supplied number is what the dealer will need to get the calibration from gm to program your truck. BUT you will have to pay the dealer for the cost of programming if you did the install your self.
  14. I have left mine plugged in for a week on vacation without cranking my truck at all and did not have a problem with it cranking. It was nice to have them flash as extra security to let people know or possibly think it might be armed and not try and steal it. We were riding atvs and from top of the mountain at night I could see my truck flash down where it was parked. Pretty neat.
