  1. As a update I tried sanding the G218 ground as well as the one on the opposite side but that did not work, I ran a extra ground from the battery negative post to the chassis thinking that if the ground was bad maybe that would stop it to no avail. I was getting my tires rotated at my local tire dealer and mentioned the issue to him and his mechanic pulled a few different codes and said it looks like a communication issue but we do not do that type of repair. So I called GM Customer Service to complain that I have lived with this for almost 5 years and am upset that a tire dealer could hone in on a possible problem but not a GM dealer...…..so of course apologies and understands but my truck has to be checked by a dealer to go forward. So I go back to my dealer who is under new ownership and a new looking service crew. I explain what has happened and they take the truck wait an hour and then tell me the brake switch is bad and we will order it. I go back next Friday to have it replaced. The new service advisor apologizes says it should have been fixed a long time ago. I won't know for a few weeks after if that really fixes it but the service manager seems genuine and seems like he really wants the problem fixed. A post I read a while back someone here said they had the same issue on a 2011 or 13 maybe and it was the brake switch so hopefully I will get lucky. Just posting so if anyone else has this issue It may give them hope to possibly fix it. Yotaman
  2. I find it ironic that my 1988 Toyota PU had a sliding damper that went from recirc to fresh and when the recirc door closed no outside air came in......Ohhh the simple things I long for. I really don't understand my 14 Sierra system and do not even really try. Yotaman
  3. Anthony J, Since I have a old truck and not expecting any sort of help as GM couldn't when it was newer, I would like to know what exactly do you GM reps do on this forum ? Why have someone PM you for a update ? Why not you share what you know about the issues brought up as maybe the fix will apply to a lot of other owners too ? If your sole reason is to make a appointment at a dealer then I think most owners can handle that part ? Not trying to be smart but I always wondered the true intent of what you guys do cause I don't recall ever seeing a solution to a problem addressed by your team. Thanks, Yotaman
  4. Wow ! I am not sure but I hope you get some sort of help. Others will be along to give input that have had similar experience. I think that I would contact GM and open a case be polite and tell them what has happened and request a good will repair. People always say I am biased and brainwashed but stuff like this never happens to the Toyotas that I have owned. Best of luck, 22R
  5. Do a search for G218 ground some have reported that doing this simple repair fixed the issue. I get the Service brake assist and Stabiltrac together and it did not work for me but I never had anything worse than that nuisance alarm.
  6. Sorry dude it looks exactly like a Tundra. I wish GM could learn to mimic their quality too. Hey after 5 years I almost have all the kinks worked out of my 50K mile Sierra. 22R
  7. I put the rubber and hose clamps on years ago and have had to tighten em up a couple times since. They worked great but I had to keep the front part of the seat at it's highest point or it was still a bit loose. I did the washer fix this weekend and left the hose clamps and it is solid any way I go. I also tightened my G210 and 218 ground points to try a correct my Brake and Stabiltrac alarms and so far so good but I still think they will return. A shame we have to fix all these issues years later cause GM never could. My truck is nice but never again GMC..... I will be Yotaman again next time around. Thanks for the fix whoever "engineered it " Yotaman
  8. Sounds like the GM I know.....and as a owner of a first year 2014 sadly you may have to get used to some stuff or plan on spending days at a dealer or leave your truck with them and gamble on it's condition when you get it back. Professional grade my azzz........ Yotaman
  9. I hope it works out better for ya'll than my 14 Sierra. I have gotten Service Stabilitrac and Brake assist since 300 miles. Was told if not on can't do anything about it. Stop by when it comes on but it always clears within a few (10 Miles) plus even if I ever made it to a dealer like they could get someone out to it while it was in is a long shot. I just live with it and hope one day is does not clear and I will bring my 300 mile service receipt plus a few others from later dates and hope they honor it but I won't have my hopes up. Yotaman
  10. No mine still does it just not as frequent as it used to. I guess I will revisit the G218 ground and sand the connection and do the other side as well since I know how to and it has slowed down since I first did it but that could be a fluke as well. Yotaman
  11. Anyone using these ? Pros and Cons if so please. Yotaman
  12. Appreciate your responses Guys. Mine seems to do it every afternoon at work as soon a I start the motor. So I am not even moving yet and both alarms come in always both of em never just one. For a while I have thought maybe it is something to do with the Bluetooth or when I connect my phone by cable to the truck but I cannot find any consistency in it. I will look into the brake pedal further too. It is only a nuisance but I still irks me. I am thinking it sitting in the hot sun like a ground point may lose good contact from contraction and expansion or something too ??? You get to be a half azz mechanic owning these newer trucks these days I tell ya that. Yotaman
  13. No but it looked to be clean metal to metal contact. Thanks for the reply. Yotaman
  14. Well damm damm damm I spoke too soon.... came back on next start. Knew it could not be that simple. Yotaman (last GM Man )
