Has anyone else had any tpms sensor issues? My truck was sitting for 3 days and when I fired it up it was complaining that 5 of my 6 tires were at 32 psi exactly and one was at the normal 70 psi. I looked out the door and none of the tires looked flat so I started driving, within 15 feet the tires were all reading normal. Are the sensors losing charge that quickly? My f-350 would sit for a week or 2 and not have an issue with the sensors.

Looks great, at least the dealer didn't string you along for 3 months like mine did. I lucked out and found something similar to what I ordered and it was only an hour and a half away. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
Does anyone else's backup camera seem washed out and have faded horizontal lines across it? I am thinking that mine has issues but want to make sure before I take it in that it isn't just normal and I'm being too picky. The mirror camera is great and crystal clear its just the one in the dash, mine is the 7" wt model in case that makes a difference.
I loved the ranch magnum I had on my ram a few years ago. It is a fiberglass cap with the side tool boxes which were great for golf clubs or any other items you may not want damaged rolling around the bed. The only downfall to it (for my wife anyways) is that there are no windows, but I am used to driving vehicles that have no back window. Once we upgraded trucks I was planning on a 5th wheel so we went with the backflip f1, I see what you are saying with the fitment issues but I lucked out and at least mine is dry.

Get the right led lights. The ones with the led chips in the center on the 2 sides like the beam tech, not the ones that have led chips all around them on 3 or 4 sides or have the sides further apart and not really thin. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
Those are the ones in my 21 3500 drw and they work great. The beam pattern is right so you don't get flashed constantly and it doesn't blind other people. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
I know coming when using other tuners on other vehicles you had to re learn the trans. This normally involved driving at 25% throttle up to speed then stop a few times, then the same at 50% and 75% before you hit full throttle. Reading about the derringer it doesn't seem that it is supposedly needed but I would try it, that is the way I had to do all of my other tuned trucks.
I have noticed that my 21 3500 drw which doesn't have the shutters warms up in half the time my 18 f350 did. I think the chevy is a better winter truck to begin with, I don't think I will be putting the winter front on unless the highs for the day were in the negatives. If I had the shutters I probably wouldn't even do it then. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
Keith_Schumaker replied to Jfg1300's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)Mine says 210 on the dash but the reading over obd2 with torque reads about 184 when the dash says 210 so the gauge on the dash is probably a dummy gauge. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
I know it doesn't "program" but it updates, and with tech line they add what you want to your vin and you flash an update to the computer. At least that is what I am reading, not too sure. And as another user stated I want actual gm codes added which are available at the dealer which they could add, I would just have to add the modules like the remote start fobs and the cargo lights then go to the dealer for the re-flash. That wams programmer looks promising but they have to add everything you want and it would be $400, I think the dealer might be cheaper than that. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
Does anyone have any experience with GM's GDS2 or know of any program like ALPHAobd for chrysler or FORscan for Ford that would work on GM vehicles? I was looking at a few things I want to do to my truck and would have a lot of programming for the dealer to do and would rather just do it myself because my trust in dealerships is about non existent. I want to add the high idle, the rear cargo lights and remote start and I am figuring I can do it with a J2534 scanner and GDS2 software but I want to make sure before I throw $150 away and still have to go to the dealer. Does anyone have any experience with this software or have it at work that they would be able to browse it for a few minutes? Coming from a F-350 I miss FORscan, I used to be able to change almost anything in the system right from my laptop. I could change the temperature of the heated steering wheel, turn seat belt chimes off, change how many times the turn signals would flash if you bumped them, add DPF% screen and much more. I have searched high and low and can't find a similar program for gm though.
If you didn't do the highs yet the post with all the bulb information in the general section was wrong for my 21 3500, it listed 9005 bulbs when they were h9 bulbs installed which are the same as h11 when buying leds. I can't believe that anyone who has halogen bulbs yet runs their truck at night. These are the worst factory headlights I have seen in my life, I ordered my bulbs as soon as I got home from my first drive at night. I am using the bulbs you have for lows in the high beam slot and I am using https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NPMV1H5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for the lows, they seem to be a bit brighter than the sealight bulbs and the beam pattern was great so it doesn't blind people.
Keith_Schumaker replied to TFern's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)Thanks for the update. Do you think maybe the parking brake is what took out the tcm? Maybe a partial hang up on the brakes messing with things, although I would assume that would cause mechanical not electrical failure but who knows.
