  1. Not sure if it’s a diy part. Probably not. Mine was still under warranty so dealer did it.
  2. It’s the seat memory module. Had mine replaced a month ago. No problems since then. It controls all driver memory locations tied to the key fobs.
  3. The cleanest signal from the Bose system will be with the PAC AmpPro4. AP4-GM61 is the model. It will give you clean rca outputs from the head unit as well as your remote turn on. I just got done using it in my truck.
  4. It pulls the digital bus signal before it gets to the amp for a pure flat clean unaltered signal. It will give you full 5 channels out. It doesn’t disconnect the speakers so if you only want to amp a couple speakers or add a sub, you can. It also give you a remote turn on.
  5. I am replacing my Bose system in a 2015 Silverado 2500. I have amps and speakers for 5 channels, but my audio processor (Twk-88) supports 8 channels. I am think of doing the following keeping the factory head unit. Front: Alpine Type R components powered by one amp at 100w each through alpine crossover to support dash tweeters. Rear: Alpine Type R coaxial powered by second amp at 50w each. (This is a four channel amp, but bridged, it pushes 200w per channel and the speakers are only 100rms. Subs: Two 10” Alpine Type R subs under rear seat powered by 1200w third amp (600w each). I am bypassing the Bose amp with the PAC AMPpro 4 and integrating with factory wiring using PAC’s wiring harness at factory amp. The AMPPro will feed 5 channels via RCA to the JL Twk-88 for processing and then fed to the three amps. UNKNOWN: Since my second amp has two extra channels that I can bridge to 100w @ 2ohms, I could hook up the factory Bose sub in the center console to this as I believe it is 2 ohms. Would it be a better sound to essentially band pass this Bose sub as a “lower” mid bass integrated with the other speakers? I’m thinking for 80-200hz or so. I listen to many different styles of music and like a full sound all around. I am not one who likes to overdrive bass on all music, but I do listen to very heavy bass music at times and would want to crank it up. Any advise is greatly appreciated!
  6. Czar, just replied to your pm. Use WAMS. You won’t be disappointed. Looks like you’re getting the right stuff.
  7. So... I had a bit of a snafu and need (want) a new tailgate for my pickup. I have a black 2015 Silverado High Country. Anyone have a lead? I’m near Dallas. I think any model year from 2015+ will work. Thanks!
  8. Yes. Steering wheel controls function as expected. 2015 2500 high country is my truck. I’m using CarPlay. The phone buttons do not end the call is the only thing I notice if I’m on CarPlay.
  9. I’ve had several people ask so here are the parts I got. HMI: 84028492 Radio Module: 23402903 USB port: 13509942 There are many options that work, but this is what I have.
  10. I just got my setup back from Chris at WAMS. He did an outstanding job and fast turn around. I purchased a used 2.5 HMI and 2016 radio module as well as the new USB port for the center console from eBay. Sent the radio and hmi to WAMS and he programmed them and sent them back. Took 20 minutes to swap everything out. Works great! He even put the latest software on it. Worth every penny! I had NAV so I got the hmi with NAV. System is so much faster and my CarPlay is back. I also get HD radio now since the 2016 radio modules have that.
