  1. I need help in finding the name of the part that goes under the center console lid in picture below. Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone. I purchased a complete set of LED bulbs to replace all the stock bulbs for my 2012 GMC Sierra 2500 HD. In addition, I upgraded the tail lights and the head light assemblies as well to house these new bulbs. I'm very happy with the complete change-over except for the hyper flash issue I'm having with the new LED turn signals. Originally, I thought I could just replace the original flasher for an LED flasher that doesn't monitor the load on the circuit and therefore operates normally with the light-loaded LED upgrade. Turns out that the 2012 doesn't have a flasher and it's the BCM that controls the turn signal lights. From what I've researched, it appears that the BCM can be programmed to allow the use of LED's by changing the configuration of the BCM to a "cab/chassis" setup where the vehicle would accept the LED tail lights. I'm guessing that with changing everything including front turn signal bulbs to LED, the BCM reprogram to "cab/chassis" will not fix my issue because I've changed the front turn signals to LED as well. The other option I've researched is installing load resistors for every LED bulb. That seems a bit outrageous and hacking into the original wiring harness is not what I'd prefer as it makes it more susceptible to malfunction, corrosion, etc. not to mention the heat these resistors tend to give off, if installed improperly, can begin causing a whole other bundle of issues. So my question is, will the BCM reprogram resolve the hyper flash issue? Depending where you are but most dealers will charge $120 - $200 for the 3 minutes it takes to plug in but if it fixes the issue, I'd rather go that route instead of hacking my wiring harness. Thanks in advance for any help!
  3. 2012 Silverado 1500. I am having an issue with my passenger side low beam. It went out as soon as i bought the truck and i, naturally, thought it was the bulb. I pulled it, and although it didn't look blown, i bought one for a replacement anyway. Still no light. I checked the witing and found some seemingly burned spots so i spliced in some new wiring and checked the fuses. All of the fuses and relays are good, but still no light. The driver side light works fine. Any suggestions on where to look from there?
  4. Have a custom mid-pipe I built to install an aftermarket muffler (Magnaflow 12909) in my 2015 2500hd 6.0 truck. I removed the muffler and went back to stock so have this left over. This makes a cleaner install and saves your mid pipe if you want to revert back to stock. The aftermarket mufflers don't have as much offset as factory and the factory mid-pipe has a offset in it that accounts for that. With this straight mid-pipe it works perfect with the less offset of the aftermarket muffler and allows everything to be installed level with the truck. Here is my post about the muffler with additional info: I had this on a crew cab, 6.5' bed 4x4 truck. I'm sure other cab/bed configurations might need this lengthened or shortened but at least the hard part of the flange and hangers are done. Asking $75 for this custom mid-pipe. How it looked installed. muffler not included. Factory muffler to show the drop offset in the original mid-pipe.
  5. Off-Topic 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 EXT Cab 4.3L WT By Crdel93, 8 hours ago in Off-Topic 1500× silverado× flywheel× 2012× chevrolet× chevy× 4.3l× extended cab× Reply to this topic Crdel93 0 Posted 8 hours ago I have 2012 Chevy Silverado Ext cab 1500 4.3L WT. I just drove it form California to Indiana which is approximately 2,200 miles the last 500 or so miles of my trip I started hearing a ticking noise. Which sounded familiar. I was towing a Mazda 3 on a dolly and had two atv's in the bed. Total weight was about 10,500 lbs. I get here to Indiana and take it to a Chevy Dealership and they want to drop the transmission. I double check my Forever Warranty before they start doing anything only to find out its voided because I didn't take it to the Chevy dealership I bought it from in Indiana but to a Chevy dealership in California since I'm active duty military and that's where I was stationed. So I said screw it I'll take it to a cheaper place since it won't be covered under warranty anyway. I take it to a guy explain what's going on and he says it sounds like my Fly wheel. I told him it's funny you say that because my truck has 72,000 miles and at about 35,000 miles my fly wheel cracked out in San Diego. Well this morning he called and confirmed that's what it is. Has anyone else had this issue? Is this going to be a reoccurring issue every 35,000 miles? Is there an underlying issue that is causing this? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi all, This is my first time posting on this forum so I hope I'm in the right area. My "service air bag" light came on today and I knew right away what the issue was due to the popular corrosion complaints. I decided to check for myself and sure enough, one of them is cracked. What I'm having difficulties understanding is why the retaining bolt is going from the top down. You would basically have to remove the radiator to get this thing out. I really don't understand why mine looks nothing like there other videos and images I've seen online. For everyone else, it seems as easy as getting underneath the truck and just unplugging and unbolting it. Has anybody else had a similar experience as me? Is there an easier way to remove this without having to take out or remove the radiator? I noticed that the end of the bolt is star shaped. Is this so that you can fit some kind of tool over it to unscrew from the bottom end? This image is from the underside. I removed the plastic skid plate to get a better view. I should also mention that this is on a 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT. With a 5.3 V8, not that it has any relevance for this. Thanks,
  7. My 2010 Sierra Crew Cab has the automatic climate controls and a problem that may be more common than I think. The temperature on the driver side doesn't warm up no matter the temp setting while the passenger side seems to work just fine. I tried switching between Auto and Manual modes, doesn't help. I hear a click down by my feet which I assume is the blend door actuator for my side. What is involved in changing the blend door actuator? How do I know that's the problem and not the controller? Why do the fail? Do the plastic gears break or the little motor burn up? Any suggestions or diagrams of the heater box would be very helpful. Thanks.

    TOTALED

    Well its been a while since I've been on this forum but I figured it was time to start my research again... Totaled my 2012 Silverado Crew last week. To keep it short and sweet, the other driver tried making a left in front of me. I was going a solid 45, he didn't see me... All of the airbags deployed, I was wearing my seat belt, and we both walked away, which is the most important thing. With that said, now its time to find me a nice used 2012 crew, or get into a new '15. Here's one pic. I have a few more that ill upload later.. I will have a few items to sell if I do end up going to the new platform. Will post those up when the time comes.. Tonneau cover ... LT2 Center console ... Weather techs, front and rear ... Vent Visors. Sad day for me.. my favorite truck by far. Just put new meats on it too.. LT27570R18 BFG TA KO2.
  9. Takata is a global airbag manufacturer who supplies parts to many automakers, including Honda, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, and General Motors. 7.8-million vehicles have been recalled so far for airbags that partially disintegrate, sending shrapnel flying when triggered. For comparison, General Motor produced over 6.5-million of the last generation pickups and SUVs from 2006 until 2013. It is unknown if the redesigned 2014+ models share similar versions of the potentially faulty airbag. GM-Trucks.com has contacted General Motors for clarification. General Motors said plans include forcing Takata to share the design of the airbag with its direct competitors to allow more production capacity. Stay with GM-Trucks.com for updates. As drivers of a 2011 GMC Sierra, we will be following this news closely. Source: Yahoo Finance
  10. By Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 12/20/2014 The answer is looking like "yes". General Motors is actively preparing "contingency plans" in case the automaker has to issue another round of recalls related to the Takata Airbag scandal. According to Reuters and Yahoo, a spokesman for the company acknowledged yesterday that the GMT-900 based Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade would be among the next vehicles recalled if the issue widened. Takata is a global airbag manufacturer who supplies parts to many automakers, including Honda, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, and General Motors. 7.8-million 21-million vehicles have been recalled globally so far for airbags that partially disintegrate, sending shrapnel flying when triggered. For comparison, General Motor produced over 6.5-million of the last generation pickups and SUVs from 2006 until 2013.

As drivers of a 2011 GMC Sierra, we will be following this news closely. Update: General Motor's representative Alan Adler tells us "There are no known air bag issues with the GMT900 full-size trucks. There is no recall planned. GM uses multiple air bag suppliers, sometimes more than one on a vehicle. All air bags are tested as components, in systems and finally on vehicles before production begins." Update 2: 12/23/14 - GM would not clarify any additional statement and would not explain why the Reuters/Yahoo article mentioned the GMT-900 trucks if there was no concern. Source: Yahoo Finance
  11. Hey everyone, I have had my truck for almost 2 months now and so far I love it! But, like any of us, I want to make changes to it to make it "mine". I have only done a few mods but have more to come. Here is what I have done so far: Replaced all of the interior lights to LED using Diode Dynamics products Changed my low beam headlights toPutco LED lights Changed my fog lights to Diode Dynamics LED lights Also added the AVS low profile window visors There is much more i want to do but this is a start. Here is a picture of the visors....really love how they look!

  17. Hello there, I have GMC Sierra 2012, I have bed side rail bars installed on it. They shake when I'm driving so they need to be tightened up. So what I'm trying to find is how to tighten them up? I tried searching about how to install them so I get to know where exactly where to tighten them up. The thing is that no screws appeared to me on the side of the bars. Also I tried to find some screws in the body of the truck, did not see any screws. What I have look just like these on the picture Thank you very much guys, Al *Photo from google images. http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTMzWDgwMA==/$T2eC16FHJF8E9nnC6L+4BQUSpCPKOQ~~60_35.JPG
  18. Hello there, I bought a GMC Sierra 2012. And I would like to change the stereo, my question is what is the biggest size I can fit in my Sierra dash if I'm replacing OEM stereo?

  19. I want to add a little bottom end to my sound system. I am probably going with a single sundown sd-2, either an 8-inch or 10-inch, depending on the volume of the box. The thought is to have a custom box built, probably out of fiberglass, that will fit perfectly into the driver's side well of the plastic tub under the back seat so that it doesn't move around or rattle, but it is still removable whenever I need the space for something else. I guess the speaker terminals would have to be on the face / top of the enclosure. Does this sound reasonable or doable? What should I expect to pay for this enclosure? Any suggestions for someone in the Dallas (TX) area to build this for me that won't take advantage of me? Attached are photos of the location.
  20. 2012-13 Escalade owners now have the option to put a CORSA cat-back exhaust system on their truck. Check out the video below for one sweet sounding Caddy! Video: Press Release:
  21. Saw this press release go out today.... If anyone is interested. Despite selling more of a single model than GM, it's good news for the entire truck market that Ford is selling so many F-150s. ------------------------------------------- F-Series Surpasses 2012 Sales; Innovations Help Ford Expand Truck Leadership Over Competitors · Ford F-Series sales have now surpassed 645,316 units, the total number of trucks sold in 2012; this year on average, one F-Series pickup sells every 42 seconds · F-Series is on track to be the best-selling vehicle in the United States for 32 straight years, and the best-selling truck for 37 straight years · Ford continues to outpace the competition, growing sales gap over the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 19, 2013 – Ford F-Series marked an important milestone today, with calendar year-to-date sales already surpassing full-year 2012 truck sales. F-Series sales have now exceeded 645,316 trucks, and are on pace to set the highest yearly sales total since 2006. In October, F-Series sales of 63,803 trucks were up 13 percent, the sixth-straight month above the 60,000-vehicle mark. The last time Ford sold more than 60,000 trucks for six consecutive months was 2006. “If our truck business continues at this rate through the end of the year, we will reach 60,000 F-Series sales for eight straight months, putting us on par with 2006, before the economic downturn,” said Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst. F-Series continues to outpace the segment, even as key competitors have launched new products, according to Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Through October, our leadership margin is nearly 220,000 units over Chevrolet Silverado and 67,000 over Silverado and GMC Sierra combined,” said Scott. “F-Series has outsold Ram by more than 330,000 units in the first 10 months of 2013, almost 50,000 more trucks than the gap a year ago. “Despite new entries from our competitors, truck consumers continue to vote us No. 1 – day in and day out – with their checkbooks,” said Scott. “In 2013, F-Series had the highest owner loyalty, and we’ve won the R.L. Polk Automotive Loyalty award in the mid- and full-size pickup category 15 times in the last 17 years.” Innovation, economic recovery drive F-Series sales Ford F-Series sales in key markets leading the country’s economic turnaround – including the Northwest, West and Southeast – are outpacing the nearest competitor by 50 percent. F-Series innovations such as EcoBoost® fuel-saving engine technology and the MyFord Touch® connectivity system are helping Ford expand its truck leadership. Ford’s new F-150 STX value model is targeted at customers hit hard by the economic downturn but returning to work in the housing, energy and other markets that are seeing strong growth. STX sales quickly increased to 10 percent of all F-150 sales in 2013 from 3 percent in 2012. At the other end of the market, a segment Ford pioneered a decade ago, high-end F-Series trucks now lead with more than 50 percent share. Western housing, tech growth F-Series is outselling its nearest competitor by more than 65 percent in western markets, where California is experiencing rapid real estate growth and the technology industry is making Oregon and Washington two of the country’s fastest-growing states. · From 2008 to 2013, California has sold more F-Series vehicles than any other state except Texas · Fuel economy resonates more in the West; 45 percent of customers in northwestern states order EcoBoost compared to the 38 percent average · MyFord Touch was added to F-150 in 2012, and resonates particularly well in the Northwest Central natural gas boom In the past five years, truck sales in the upper Midwest and Plains states represent the most significant percentage growth in F-Series trucks; this growth is tied mainly to expansion of domestic energy exploration and the renewable energy industry. · From 2008 to 2013, F-Series sales grew 156.8 percent in North Dakota – the company’s fastest-growing state by percentage – quadrupling the growth of No. 2, Texas. Montana is No. 3 at 121 percent and South Dakota is No. 4 at 112.5 percent · Natural gas-powered Ford vehicle sales expected to rise 25 percent this year · The energy sector, along with housing, is driving F-Series sales in the traditionally strong Texas market, with growth of 27 percent since 2008, to 500,000 trucks The 2014 Ford F-150 is on sale now, featuring the new F-150 Tremor, the world’s first EcoBoost-powered sport truck, and a new compressed natural gas prep option for customers to convert their F-150 to run on clean-burning, inexpensive CNG.

  23. I just wanted to share my experience with my OGM1 navigation system. I just got a 2012 Acadia and wanted a nav system for it. I did my research and got an OGM1 from Walt at ADCMobile. He doesn't disappoint with his level of service and great install notes and videos. Apparently there is a known issue with cars that have a separate rear audio control. The problem is that when the rear is turned on by someone in the back seat, the audio that was playing over the cabin speakers goes silent until the rear is turned off again. I found this very frustrating. Walt already had a firmware patch for me to try. Something to do with a tweak to the RSE. After banging my head a few times and repeating, still no luck. Walt took the problem to the guys at Advent to see what they thought. First thought was to have me try again, so I did. After another unsuccessful attempt, the Advent guys really rolled up their sleeves and came up with a special firmware fix just for my situation. As they wrote: "We have been working non-stop to figure out the problem. It all has to do with CAN code , timing of the command, and a very specific wave length of a pulsed command. From what we have learned it seems that these can vary" I just gave it a try last night an eureka! Now everything is working perfectly, rear audio controls and all. For a while I though I was going to be out of luck, but Walt and the guys at Advent really came through. Thanks guys! One question, if anyone knows. If a new firmware update comes out, will I lose my special rear audio fix again? Thanks again! Amazing work. Very glad I picked-up an Advent.
  24. I was giving my truck a good wash over the weekend and noticed a small and hardly noticeable dent on my rear bumper. Never noticed the damn thing because the bumper was always filthy. With summer coming soon, and how clean I keep my truck during the warmer months I'd like to get this fixed. Cheapest place to buy a new bumper? Do i have to buy a whole new bumper or just that chrome section? Picture attached to show dent; Thanks for any help
