When my truck is on and running my air filter life percentage says 0%. However, when my keys are just an accessory mode, with the engine off, it says 30% air filter life left. What am I supposed to do with that information?
2019 Silverado with 13,000 miles (driveway queen) just outside of warranty. I have some spots under the frame where the GM wax coating has started to peel and exposed metal is showing surface rust. Mainly from vehicle lifts, jacks, and random brush. I'm wanting to touch up the bare spots per GM’s TSB Here GM’s procedure is to…”prep the metal surface using *Lloyd’s Pure PrepTM Metal Surface Preparation P/N 25418, then topcoat with both *Lloyds Kryptonite Metal Treatment P/N 36502 Life Long Rust Protection and *Daubert Non-Rust® P/N X-121B One Coat Rust Preventative Coating. The issue is that I can source the Daubert coating (at exuberant prices) , but none of the LLoyds surface prep or metal treatment can be sourced. I also know that no petroleum based products or solvent-based product should be used on this wax as it causes further problems by deteriorating the wax from the factory. that being said I have been looking for water-based (non-solvent) substitutes for the Lloyd’s products that I cannot locate or source. I have found a water base substitute for the surface prep from Por15 Here . But I cannot find a substitute for Lloyd’s kryptonite Metal treatment that is non-solvent based. just wondering what you guys use as a substitute now. Thinking about using an enamel based paint. No oils or solvents. Thinking that This might fit the bill. Wondering what your all’s thoughts on this might be. my plan right now is to scrape away the rust with a wire brush, clean the surface with the Por15 metal prep, spray with the enamel based paint primer from krylon, then spray on the factory Dauberts wax coating.
2019 Silverado here. Behind the passenger side interior fuse panel cover, there are white trim clips that are attached to it. I have looked at every auto parts store in town for these clips. Can’t find anything. Also scoured GM’s parts website up and down and can’t find a reference. Does anybody know the part number to replacement trim clips for this panel?
V-6 2019 Silverado calls for 6qts of oil. During an oil change, I drained all the oil out and changed filter. Truck is sitting on level ground, and all oil was drained until the last drop came out. I pre-filled the new filter to the top with oil, which left me with 5 3/4 ish quarts of oil. I put the rest in the truck. I started my truck and let it run for a good five minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for about an hour. I came back out and checked the dipstick my dipstick only shows half way. I even really stuck the dipstick down in the oil and “spun“ it a few times to make sure it picked up all over. Same thing. then I started thinking that Oil was not “sticking“ to parts of this dipstick. As you can see from the picture above; there’s oil on the very top of it, but nothing in the middle section. So I tested my theory and went and stuck the dipstick in an old bottle used oil. It stuck all over it with no problems. i’m guessing it would probably take another half a quart or so to at least to get it up to the full mark. What the hell is the deal ? when Chevrolet specifies 6 quarts of oil for this engine, they clearly state that this is “with filter“.
Does anyone know what the amperage rating on the cigarette lighter power adapter in the front cab is? I know it’s hooked to a 50 amp fuse on the passenger side fuse panel, but that seems huge for a cigarette lighter. at the most, all I’ve ever seen was 10 amps. But this is literally hooked to a 50 amp fuse. Wanted to check before I split it and hook some accessories to it. Can’t find a solid answer.
That’s the problem. They don’t know what happened to it and now they are having trouble sourcing the item. I thought I’d have a look and try to source the part myself. (2 heads better than one). I can’t find a solid part number to save my life. Just wanting to at least “see” the part to match it up to some of the suspected parts online. But since that part is missing, I have no visual cross reference for it.
Thanks. I’ve got a 2019 with basic towing package. I’m hoping mine isn’t “hardwired” like yours is (mine doesn’t appear to be). I appreciate it a bunch. I just spoke with the body shop and they said that they are ordering this part (photo below). It “looks” like the right part, but I’m not sure why it is labeled “parking aid system wiring harness”. The system says that it fits my truck. But I don’t have parking sensors, but the part does appear to have the appropriate connectors. Fingers crossed. I’m still hoping someone else with a basic towing package chimes in here. Thanks again.
Anyone with a 19/20/21 (new body style Silverado, with towing package)?? So I’m trying to source a part that is missing. I had the truck repaired after rear end damage and when I got the vehicle back, the wire was missing. The wiring harness behind the 7 pin tow connector. I’m trying to find out where it connects to the truck at. I can’t source the part/diagram online. I talked to several dealerships parts departments, even they were having trouble sourcing the part. I Was going to go to the dealership lot and look at some of the trucks on the lot and see how they are connected, but thought someone could help me out here first. It looks like a male/female wiring harness, maybe 10 inches long. Best I can tell, it looks like it plugs in to a harness connector that runs along the rear frame crossmember. I’ll include a photo of where I “think“ the harness plugs into by the rear frame member. I’ll also include a photo of the back of the seven pin trailer connector. I found a similar part for the “old model” 2019’s , but parts catalogs say it doesn’t fit my truck. The photo for that part is here. Part number 84154213 if someone could just send me a photo of how this connects. Is it hard wired to the entire vehicle wiring harness assembly? Or is a simple pigtail connector? If a pigtail, any part numbers. if it’s hardwired into the vehicle electrical harness assembly, I’m wondering if they didn’t “accidentally rip it“. begging 4 help. Thanks again to the forum
Can someone please help me out. I’m trying to find the part number for the wiring harness that connects the trailer wire harness on the rear bumper to the truck itself. It’s the wire that runs from behind the rear of the bumper to the truck plug underneath the truck. I have looked EVERYWHERE to try and find the OEM part number. I am at a complete loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well, I thought this would be easy. Looking for the seven pin wiring harness that plugs in behind the oem 7-pin bumper plug of the trailer light connector and runs up and plugs in to the 7 PIn vehicle plug. it’s essentially an adapter harness for seven pin connector. One side is male, and the other side is female. he connects the OEM trailer plug on the rear bumper, to the wiring harness just underneath the truck. I have looked up every word and search term in GM parts websites. I can’t find anything with a part number or name that will bring me to this product. Does anyone have any assistance they can offer? even a simple schematic of the wiring in the rear of the truck with part numbers listed underneath would be great. I think I could find it from there. Looks like it might only be about a 10 inch long wiring harness may be a little longer. I will add pictures of the two adapters I need to connect together under the truck.
the lemon law states that … “…Most manufacturers use an arbitration system to resolve lemon law disputes, and you must notify them in writing if you think your vehicle is a lemon. If you cannot settle your case through arbitration, consult with a lemon law attorney, as you may need to take the manufacturer to court…” I can tell you about GM’s arbitration system. However , I have not filed a lemon law case…..yet… Just to save you some time and headache, I have already been down this road with GM. After weeks of emails back and forth with GM corporate… they basically said… we can contact a GM dealer of your choosing to work on buying back the vehicle.” This sounds good at first, but basically all you’re doing is walking into the dealership and trading your truck in for whatever they offer. There’s no special incentive, no guaranteed cash offer, all big corporate GM is doing is just setting you up with an appointment and turning their heads. they’re just making it sound like on paper they are “helping“ or “buying back“ your truck. They aren’t. I pretty much told them, “no thanks.“ I can go to Carmax and do the same thing without months of emails to GM corporate. Either way, I’m gonna lose $$$. I feel like the only way to get anything done through GM is if a lawyer contacts them on your behalf. Even then, who knows. and then ur talking legal fees (which could probably be restituted ) , time in court, etc. with today’s current vehicle values, I would probably just outright sell it. You’re guaranteed to make a profit. if you’re going to do it though, I’d move quick. Most states, you only have 12 months or 12,000 miles to file a lemon law complaint.
