  1. I let my truck sit at the airport for days at a time when I travel and never have any trouble unlocking it with the app when I get back ...
  2. Looking for a heated cocoa steering wheel for 2014-2018. I don't want the collision avoidance on it -- just heat. May be interested in the clock spring as well. Shoot me a PM with prices if you have one to sell.
  3. Sure you can do it yourself: Also have your dealer look up PIT5405.
  4. Not really. Depending on the year of the vehicle you get anywhere from 1 month to 5 years free. After that you have to pay $14/month for what OnStar calls the "Remote Access" plan.
  5. Like SASK_RT said you can get it down to around $8/month. Also your husband's free version will expire 5 years after the truck was put into service and he will be in the same situation as you ...
  6. That is definitely the bad battery cables or ground issue. Tell your dealer to look up PIT5405. I attached an old copy but there is probably a newer revision by now. PIT5405B Electrical Ground.pdf
  7. This. It's called the G218 ground. Tell your dealer to look up PIT5405.
  8. Everything said above is true. The only thing you can do is pay for the "Remote Access" plan. It is advertised at $14.99/month or $149.99 if you pay for the whole year but if you negotiate with them they will eventually offer $99 if you pay for the whole year in advance. After taxes it comes out to a little under $9 per month.
  9. You still have to buy mobile data to use the WiFi in the truck. I think they partner with AT&T so you may be able to use your own data if your cell service is already with them. If not it costs you $20 per month for unlimited WiFi in the truck. You do NOT need to have OnStar to get the data -- it is a separate plan. Also not sure what you mean by "apps" but you cannot use any apps directly on the screen of your 2015. GM didn't add the app store until 2016.
  10. What shape is the air dam in?
  11. Here is GTPprix website (White Auto and Media Services) for the upgrade: https://www.whiteautoandmedia.com/product/2014-2015-5-c-k-platform-car-play-retrofit-programming/ It is $100 if you supply the HMI and radio modules which you can probably find on ebay. Chris can help you get the right part number then his $100 fee is for the programming which will make it plug-and-play in your truck (easy 15 minute change after he sends you the programmed module).
  12. Your truck does not support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. GM added it in mid-2016. The only way you can get it is to switch out the HMI for a newer one. They are plug-and-play AFTER you have them programmed to your VIN. There are tons of threads on here about it but if you message th3magpi3 or GTPprix they can help you get the right HMI and do the programming for you.
  13. Might get more interest if you post this in the "For Sale" forum ....
  14. It is a GM feature called "afterblow" (no I didn't make that up). It is meant to dry the evaporator core so you don't get that moldy smell from your A/C. On some years it came already enabled but on others the Techs had to enable it later after people started to complain about it. https://www.underhoodservice.com/gm-eliminating-air-conditioning-odor/
