  1. I have a 2020 Custom with Bluetooth and wired Carplay. I find Bluetooth annoying and unreliable. I always use wired.
  2. This attached photos show how I powered by front camera. Wires were very easy to route neatly.
  3. Posted 1 hour ago Hey brother, Could you give me some insight on that leather heated seats and front camera? For seats: how are they wired, pics of switch placement and such, where you buy the front camera and is it “oem look” and function. The leather heated seats are from katzkins, a California firm that makes them. In my opinion they are far superior to the stock leather seats. The front camera is from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S8X4RJ4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It is incorporated in a front license plate frame and plays through my IPhone. I'm pretty happy with it as it works well for tricky parking situations and other uses as well.
  4. I thought my situation would be that simple only to be disappointed because it was not. That emblem is glued on so tightly it is almost impossible to remove without damaging the air bag. That's why I decided to back off and paint it.
  5. Changing to a black Bowtie on the steering wheel is deceptively hard to do because it is glued to the air bag. I ended up masking mine and and painting it with semi-gloss black. So far, it is holding up just fine.
  6. Railroad Jim, your installation looks so good I wish I had followed your approach instead of the "full" version. Too late now, but wanted to let you know what a nice job you did.
  7. Very tasteful. Attached is what I did to my 2020.
  8. I was worried enough about plugging in the Harness Doctor connector correctly that I double checked with the company by telephone and got a quick and informative response. I also triple checked my plug ins before putting everything back together because I dreaded having to tear the whole mess apart over a wrong plug in. My efforts, and the excellent help from Harness Doctor, resulted in perfect function the first time.
  9. The Harness Doctor connector comes with excellent instructions and tech support by telephone is the best I've experienced. Just make sure you make an accurate count of where to plug the harness in as the factory are not numbered. It would be a real bummer to have everything hooked up and experience a malfunction because of an incorrect plug in to the female locations.
  10. One of the first things I did to my 2020 Custom was to change the stock halogen headlight bulbs to LED. I bought mine from Amazon and have over 10,000 miles and a year's time on the with no problems.
  11. I just had a similar occurrence on my 5.3. While on the road I had the oil and filter changed at Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet in Columbus, Ohio. The filter started leaking after I returned to Texas. Classic Chevrolet picked it up under warranty, repaired it and cleaned the undercarriage.
  12. My phone controls work fine with wired Car Play. I can make calls using using the steering wheel buttons and Seri and hang them up with the buttons as well. I'd rather use a wired Car Play connection than mess with Blue Tooth because the wired connection is more dependable.
  13. A heat gun might help but are you sure it was the bolt that stripped or the Torx bit? A 45 looks like it fits but it's too small. I ruined one. Using a 55 mm worked perfectly with an impact wrench. Rather than loosening the bolt with a full on trigger pull, I "bumped" it with the impact until it loosened.
  14. Just a guess, I did have a very secure ground connection, could it be a grounding problem?
