  1. Yeah its a great thing to have--Wonder how much GM added to the cost of the truck for basically a $40 AC/DC converter!!
  2. I'm no stereo expert but I do know enough to know that this isn't normal---Take it to the dealer!
  3. I agree--GO to another dealer!! If it still can't be fixed I would make a case with GM. Having multiple electrical issues at the same times spells more issues down the road!!
  4. My 2020 RST came equipped with the upgraded Bose package so it's not just LTZ and up!
  5. I ordered my S&B back in September, didn't get it until January
  6. I installed the FM Flow FX dual kit a month after I bought the truck. To me it isn't overly loud, especially at "Warm" idle. You can hear it going down the road and even better when you put your foot in it. I do believe that is the whole point of installing it---It sounds like a truck now!!
  7. I believe you are 100% correct. There seems to be a conductivity issue. I bet if you look closely at the area the buzzing is coming from a small arc can be seen at night and maybe even a small burnt spot!!!
  8. I too am using Android Auto. I also have an unlimited data plan for WiFi and the complete OnStar package. At times my Wifi will completely quit and I have to contact OnStar to get them to send a code to the truck. Also, from time when I use the wheel mounted volume buttons my instrument cluster screen will display the volume level but not on the radio screen. But when I use the knob on the stereo, the screen radio shows the volume but not on the instrument screen??? I have also had issues with my settings I chose going haywire. I hope GM gets all these issues fixed before my warranty runs out or I sell it!!
  9. When turning hard one way or the other and you hear a POP, more than likely a ball-joint issue. Many techs will check alignment and fix what they see at that time. When you have a out of center steering wheel issue the front end alignment needs to me completely redone from the start. Simply getting one side back into alignment does not fix all issues!! The problem with all vehicles shops these days the techs are required to go by the appropriate vehicle service manual which tells them step by step what the troubleshooting/repair procedure is. They are not allowed to deviate from the manual even though at times common sense tells them to do so! This is because GM, Ford, RAM, etc is footing the bill for a warranty repair and will not pay them to do something that is not in the manual. Most dealer mechanics are also paid "By the job". If it takes a mechanic 1 hour to complete what the book says takes an hour, he is paid for 1 hour. If it takes him 2 hours he is still paid for 1 hour. On the other hand if it takes him 30 minutes to complete it, he is still paid for 1 hour. All that being said, "Most" dealer mechanics will rush through jobs to get as many jobs completed in a day which in turn puts more money in his and the dealers pocket. So, what all that means is "Most" dealers could care less if the job gets the problem fixed or not. If it does great, if it doesn't the manufacturer will pay them to work on it again!! However, a "Non-Dealer" shop will do whatever it takes to fix the issue because once they are paid they don't want the vehicle back to be fixed again on their dime!! Sorry for the rant but having repeat issues with vehicles over the years, and knowing a GM Service manager, I know this to be fact!
  10. Just to help out---I too finally received mine last week after waiting 3 months and installed it this past Sunday. I did put the plug in mine as recommended but of course I don't have snow issues here in central Texas. I was worried about engine noise as others had mentioned in other forums but I did not notice anything different. I do however have a Flowmaster FlowFX kit installed which drowns out a lot of noise but still had no noticeable difference. Motor seems to be a tad more responsive and pulls a little harder. Hadn't drove it enough to notice MPG change yet, we'll see!
  11. You are correct about dissimilar metal corrosion on the GMCs but the Chevrolets are steel not aluminum, plus the fact that on either of them you are drilling holes which I and I'm sure others have a problem drilling into a new truck!
  12. I know it's a little late for some in me posting this BUT here it is anyhow. The trucks come with the "Fronts" only installed and GM does NOT offer "Matching" rear guards!!! To get matching guards you must order them both. Now keep in mind to install the guards that GM offers on the Accessory website, you must drill into the fenders. I found that the Weathertech No-Drill rear guards not only match must closer to the front stock ones but you don't have to drill holes of course!
  13. Following-----but may be a moot point (Mine are being made already) Would like to hear install dos and don'ts though!!
