    2018 2500HD
  1. No I meant the transmission pans between the 2017 and 2018 HD trucks.
  2. Is there a difference between the 17s and 18s? I have a little while before my trans fluid will need to be changed but I'm interested in a pan like this when I do.
  3. I certainly wasn't looking at it to make any permanent modifications... but having that part in there the opposite way it is makes more sense to me. If the underbody spray hadn't gotten on the tabs I probably would have already answered my own question.
  4. The 7 pin plug in on the top, allowing water to sit inside the lid, is really stupid. The shape makes it look like the outlet could be flipped over for the 7 pin on the bottom and 4 pin on top. It started raining when I crawled under the truck, but I wasn't sure there was enough excess wire to allow this to happen. Plus I was having trouble getting both tabs in at the same time to pop the thing out. I was guessing someone would have done this is already if it works, or have tried it.
  5. The manual says 45k for severe use.
  6. I used this on my last truck for a few years before I sold it. My new truck has an integrated brake control so I no longer need it. Works fine. Includes a 3015-P wiring harness for a GM truck (mine was a 2003, not sure exactly what other years it will fit). Comes with the controller, wiring harness, mounting bracket, and two mounting screws. $55 shipped (with tracking number). I can take paypal.
  7. I was wondering if someone had added a plug to the factory pan. I actually figured there would be aftermarket pans with cooling fins and a slightly higher capacity (like there was for my old truck) but I don't see any specifically listed for what I have. It doesn't sound like the transmissions have changed much over the last few years.
  8. I had a 2003 Sierra with an extended cab and short bed . I had (and loved) a Sportz tent for the bed. I recently sold the truck and then remembered I had this tent in a bag with all my camping stuff. I want to post it on one of the local for sale groups and try to get some money back out of it but I'm not sure exactly which range of years it will fit. I seem to remember most of the things I bought for it seemed to be withing the 1999-2006 range. Is the bed size consistent for these years?
  9. I guess I forgot the most important thing.... just RTFM. Programming without Recognized Keys Program a new key to the vehicle when a recognized key is not available. Canadian regulations require that owners see their dealer. If two currently recognized keys are not available, follow this procedure to program the first key. This procedure will take approximately 30 minutes to complete for the first key. The vehicle must be off and all of the keys you wish to program must be with you. 1. Insert the new vehicle key into the ignition. 2. Turn the ignition on. The security light will come on. 3. Wait 10 minutes until the security light turns off. 4. Turn the ignition off. 5. Repeat Steps 2–4 two more times. After the third time, turn the ignition on; the key is learned and all previously known keys will no longer work with the vehicle. 6. To learn a second key, turn the ignition off, insert the second key to be learned, and turn the ignition on. After two keys are learned, the remaining keys can be learned by following the procedure in “Programming with Two Recognized Keys.” The key has a bar-coded key tag that the dealer or qualified locksmith can use to make new keys. Store this information in a safe place, not in the vehicle. See your dealer if a replacement key or additional key is needed. If it becomes difficult to turn a key, inspect the key blade for debris. Periodically clean with a brush or pick.
  10. I'm confused how I'm supposed to proceed.... this sounds like what I need to do, but if I do this with one of the new keys, will it delete the key I already have, still leaving me with one programmed? I do have the remote but I'm not seeing anywhere that it can be involved. Most of the information I can find on this subject is for the older models. "If all keys are lost, the 30 minute learn procedure should be used. Once a key is learned with 30 minute learn procedure, all previously known keys will no longer work with the vehicle." So if all previous keys will no longer work, how the hell am I supposed to program two? I guess I'll email Chevy. "If you are replacing a lost key(s) and have no other spares already programmed: With an unlearned master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. Observe the security indicator, after approximately 10 min the indicator will turn off. Turn OFF the ignition and wait 5 seconds. Repeat steps 1 - 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 min.Start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information.
  11. Well, damn. No I don't have both original keys.
  12. I just bought an '18 2500 HD. I purchased two new keys from a dealer, and cut them to match mine. They explained the process of programming them and offered to do it, but as easy as it sounded, I told them I'd do it. So, I try and when I tried to program it, I keep getting the "Theft Deterrent" service message and the theft lock emblem does not shut off with the new keys. Procedure (just in case I'm doing something wrong) Put the key that works in the ignition, turn to "run" After the theft lock light goes off, turn the key off and remove Immediately put the new key in and turn to "run". The Service: Theft Deterrent" pops up on the display with "dismiss" as the only option. The light stays on. Now, I tried actually starting the truck with the old key, and then starting the truck with the new keys and it worked, but the light stayed on for several minutes and went off. I thought that might have actually programmed it but still no luck. I never saw a message about new keys being programmed like I was expecting (along with a total number of keys programmed). So, am I missing a step, is there something different on the '18s than the previous models, or did I screw something up by actually using the new key to start the truck? The dealer had my VIN so I would assume the keys they gave me would have the correct transponder. Thanks.
  13. Do you have a manual with it? I'm not familiar with that model of hitch but you should be able to reduce some of the distribution action to allow a little more tongue weight. I bought my WD hitch when I had my 1500, so I figure I'm going to have to readjust it for my new truck. I may not need it for weight distribution but I like the idea of keeping the sway control.
