  1. Silverado XM Module Replacement

    FYI, the xm ID is not linked to the factory radio as stated above. Unfortunately, it cost me $130 to figure this out. I replaced the factory radio and just had it unlocked. It has the same xm ID. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  2. Silverado XM Module Replacement

    That's my plan! I'm assuming that if they transfer it, and the old one being "broke" that radio id won't be able to be activated anymore, so I want to make sure that a new owner has one they can activate. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  3. Silverado XM Module Replacement

    So if I get a new radio, my lifetime subscription should still be active on my old radio it sounds... Assuming they will even allow transfer from the old radio if it is "broken." Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  4. Silverado XM Module Replacement

    They won't let me transfer and keep the lifetime subscription. Is the head unit the XM box under the dash, or the main radio? Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  5. I have another question for you guys. On my truck, I have a lifetime Sirius XM subscription. Of course, when I bought the subscription, I was told I could transfer 3 times, but apparently that only applies to non oem radios. So, I've read that if your radio is damaged or accidentally broken that they may do a one time swap. So here's my question, if I replace the XM Module, will it give the radio a new id? I'm not sure if the Sirius XM radio id is linked to the radio, or module? I would assume once my "lifetime" radio id is deactivated, it would never be able to be used again, so I want to put one in my truck that could be activated by a new owner.
  6. Hi, I've got a 2007 Silverado 1500, crew cab, LTZ, with AFM and 207,xxx miles on it. I was having an issue with my motor (I was hoping it was just a coil or plugs), and after the repair shop looked it over, they discovered all the spark plugs on one side of the engine were shot. Hoping it would still be an easy fix, they looked into it further to discover that there is no compression and it looks like my motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced (a somewhat common occurrence for this particular motor so it seems). My quote for replacing the engine with a Jasper engine is $6,500. It will come with a 3 year, 100,000 mile warranty. I've heard they're pretty solid engines. I "was" planning on turning it in around September/October and purchasing a new 2019. I figured around my area (lower Michigan) that I could get around $9,000. It has a new front bumper and fender flares color matched to the truck (to deal with rust issues), so besides the rust I stopped from spreading under the fender flares, the truck has no rust or other damage. Very clean inside, only issue is the crack in the dash (another common issue, I hear). It's not in immaculate condition, but I've taken excellent care of it the entire time I've owned it. Soo, I'm open to anyone's opinion. Is it worth putting a new motor in, or just try to sell it "as-is." I'm assuming I could get $3,000 for how it sits, but I could be WAY off on that. My thoughts: 1. Put a new motor in, drive for a year, still get $7-8K out of it? I don't know if the new motor would help with resale, or hurt? By that time, there should be incentives and deals on 2019, and I'm sure I can get one at least $7K lower than a a new one now. 2. Sell the truck, take the $3K (if I can even get that) and find a deal on a 2018...or similar $6,500 seems like a lot to me to put into an 11 year old vehicle. But I just don't know. I hadn't thought about any of this 3 days ago, but such is reality. Figured I'd try to read through whatever help you guys could give and weigh all my options. Appreciate any insight!
  7. Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me? My rear passenger seatbelt keeps locking up. I've removed the torque screw mounting the belt to the floor to release it, and that worked for about a day or two, but now it is locked up again. I'd like to replace the rear seat belt myself (if possilbe). I have a 2007 Silverado Crew Cab LTZ, with the rear airbags and backup sensor. I'm scared to start prying on the panels to remove them, because I don't want to damage the airbag or sensor. Does anyone know of a digram/instruction/video that shows how to remove the rear seatbelt? I've found the diagram for the extended cab, but not the crew cab...and nothing with the airbag or backup sensor. I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
