  1. Go to a tire shop like Discount and have them use their scanner to reset the brake pad life monitor
  2. It will turn off even when the AC is on, just not as frequently as if the AC is off. Your understanding of that was incorrect. However, it should've come back on when you either released the brake peddle, or put the truck in P. Sounds like there may be a "glitch". Refreshed model tells me it's new. It has been my experience with several GM's that "electrical gremlins" can exist after a few thousand miles. In my experience, after you have 5,000 miles on the odometer they should not happen anymore, although I've had it occur at least once after the 5,000 mile mark (but not too far after that) with my 2020 Silverado and it (cross country drive, crossing down SB I-15 into Baker, CA, cruise control set while going downhill, ESC Traction Control, CEL, and limp mode) never repeated itself after that. If you'd like to avoid future possible occurrences you can just turn off auto start/stop when you get into the truck each time. I think there's an aftermarket device you can buy to shut it off permanently, but I don't have any info on that.
  3. Aside from the issues I had, yes. It does as intended. I'll also add that I have the Putco led blade lightbar from GM Accessories. The gap cover did not affect it at all.
  4. I did. Puked it off a few months later. It was scratching the paint on the bed side of the gap. It also caused the bushing on the right side of the tailgate to crack and the tailgate would pop out on that side and prevent it from closing. I ended up pulling it after a few months and replaced it with a weatherstripping I found on Retrax's website.
  5. Beat me to it. I can read the original message, but not fluent enough in French to respond and would've had to use Google translate. I spent 6 years learning the language, but haven't used it in almost 25 years. You got a handle on it, so I'll bow out.
  6. Some GM vehicles have oil caps that say to use Mobil 1. In those scenarios the dealer is required to use that, unless the customer states they want another brand. Sounds like something similar may be happening with Pennzoil and Dodge. Either way, the only good oil is the one that works.
  7. The forum search function is your friend. I recommend using it. GM has been addressing this issue. Ranting about an issue that's been beat to death, and taking "advice" from somebody that has only been here a few days, just screams trolling.
  8. You're correct. I misspoke. On these trucks, the ride with the Ranchos is very bouncy. Many people have switched over to Bilstein and love the improved ride quality. I have the factory 18s on my Trail Boss with the 6.2 and have found the onroad handling to be bouncy. Tires are at the factory recommended air pressure.
  9. PA Announcer over the intercom: Paging @Grumpy Bear, come in Grumpy Bear.
  10. Define mistake. You ordered a truck built with a stiffer suspension for driving offroad. The Ram equivalent is the Rebel. If you keep the AT4 and want a smother ride I suggest swapping the Rancho shocks for Bilstein.
  11. Get your facts straight. I didn't attack you for dissing GM. I asked questions, and pointed out similar or bigger problems with Ford. Many of which you didn't answer or acknowledge. I presented facts. You presented insults, such as calling people failures. More evidence to support my claim is that you posted here simply to start problems. Feel free to move along now.
  12. Update has nothing to do with lack of response, but simply due to lack of something to update. MVi is still silent, and the dealer is too. Remember, GM wanted to charge the dealer $75 just to talk to them. Dealer wanted to pass that cost on to me. There was no guarantee there would be a fix after spending that money. Dealer isn't willing to reach out to GM and explain the situation to see if they'd waive the fee. This wasn't my fault in any way. I wasn't aware of the issue until after the fact.
  13. Check your connections. Make sure everything is correct and secure tightly. If you had a DTC code to share it would be more helpful. Make sure your MAF is installed correctly, and they're are no air gaps anywhere in the line anywhere after the MAF.
  14. Finally getting the cb antenna sorted out. Going with the President Electronics Mississippi. Mounting it on top of the GM Accessories sport bar via a low profile mount. We'll see how this works out.
  15. I only looked up the numbers for Silverados. If you find the numbers for the Sierra feel free to add them to my overly simplified math.
