  1. Yes, the dealer has to program it. I just had the dealer program my Silverado LT last week for the GM fog lights I partially installed. I did everything except connect the harness to the UEC. It cost me $150 to have the dealer connect the harness and program the BCM, although I have seen a range of prices on here. I am in South Florida.
  2. For those of you that did this, what did you do with the B3 wire that was in the UEC already? The instructions seem to say to just take it out and tape the end with electrical tape? It seems like this wire should be doing something? I also had the brown/white wire at the BCM already so I did not do the jumper wire through the firewall. Thanks
  3. Hmm, my Pixel 3xl suddenly quit connecting to my 2019 Silverado. Tried new cable, reboot, clear app cache but no luck. Looks like it is not uncommon. Hopefully, someone will come up with a clear fix.
  4. I second the blinker mirrors. I had the blinker mirrors in my Yukon Denali and would really like to have them on my Silverado. I guess because of the blind-spot monitoring, it was deemed redundant. A bunch of economy cars have them now, but I guess those little cars need all of the safety features they can put on them.
  5. I loved the retractable running boards that I had on my Yukon Denali, wish I had them now on my Silverado. I am tall and do not like to use a running board, but my wife makes a big deal about having them. With the retractables, I could turn them off when I was alone and back on when I had company. I may have to replace my running boards with something like these.
  6. I have 2019 T1 LT crewcab with a cracked high mount brake light. With all of the recent rain, it is holding water. The new style brake light is secured from inside the cab and it is apparent that I will have to drop the headliner. I was wondering though if I can just remove the "B" and "C" post covers and be able to drop the headliner enough without removing the overhead console and "A" post cover. And is there anything else I need to do? Has anyone had to do this yet? Thanks!
  7. Interesting, I guess it is possible to add rain sensing wipers?
  8. My 2008 Yukon Denali with 105K miles suddenly started running really bad this week. The traction control/stabilitrac light came on at the same time. I took it to a local shop which said I need to take it to a dealer. They felt possibly it was a bad fuel pump module (which has physical damage) and a new one would have to be programmed by the dealer. I drove it a few miles to Williamson Cadillac here in Miami. The service advisor called me the next day and said that diagnostics points to no compression in cylinders in 2 and 4. He said that he has seen this several times before with the 6.2 where it is a broken valve spring. However, it will be a week before they can fully check out the engine. I have always cared for my Yukon with regular maintenance and do not drive it hard. Obviously the engine is out of warranty but I was wondering how big of an issue is the broken valve and/or spring with the non-AFM 6.2 engine? I haven't seen much on the internet as everything seems to be related to the AFM engines. I am hoping it is just a simple valve spring replacement but I am aware that if a valve dropped and hit a piston, I am looking at a new engine. I'll keep you guys posted as I find out more. Thanks.
  9. Actually I guess I know the answer now but I was under the impression that all 2007/2008/2009 Denali were AWD. Anyway, I bought a 2008 Yukon XL Denali and just assumed it was AWD, the dealer even had the windshield marked AWD, but when I looked underneath it today, it is definitely RWD. It doesn't really bother me as I got a great deal on it and I live in Miami, although I do tow a 28' boat and it could have been useful a time or two at a slippery boat ramp. But does anyone have any idea of how many were RWD vs AWD? When I did the VIN search at compnine.com it said my Denali is one of one made that year. Just curious, thanks.
