  1. My reverse lights are staying on: When in park When in drive When the ignition is off I have removed fuse #33 in the engine compartment fuse box which kills power to the revers lights to keep from killing my battery. This also keeps my reverse camera from turning on when in reverse also. I have unplugged the backup camera thinking this was causing a bad ground with no success. I don't see where a relay might be that could be bad/stuck. This is a interment problem which points to ground or relay issue somewhere but I don't know where to look.
  2. Hello. Is anyone having issues with the "air bag service light"? At 140 miles the abs sensor and bearing in the front passenger side went bad and the dealer had to replace it. The next 3700 miles with this truck were awesome but now I've been dealing with this air bag service light for the last 400 miles. I've already had the dealer look at it 3 times and they can't seem to fix it. The dealer inspected the wiring harness under the driver's seat and removed extra grease, then they replaced wiring harnesses, now they did some reprogramming and it's still acting up. There is nothing that triggers it, it just comes on when it wants to. I could be driving to the corner store and it comes on, stays on for about 10 - 15 seconds then it turns off. A mile down the road it comes back on for another 10 - 15 seconds then it turns off. I am beyond frustrated with this to say the least. Any comments / suggestions / recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I believe that's a rod knock. But a friend told me it was a lifter tick and now I am confused which one is it. What you guys think? My 2014 Silverado 5.3 z71 20210120_194156_1.mp4
  4. I have a 5.3 with the 6L80 in it and was hoping to swap over to a 6.2 but i can’t find much online about what i will need to replace, anything would help. I know i’ll need a new ECM and possibly a new flex plate but besides that i’m not sure. Thanks in advance!
  5. I bought my 2014 Silverado last July when I came back from Afghanistan. Truck was fine. Every now and then when I’d hit a pot hole or back up in tight spots my stabilitrak light would come on. And when I would back up it felt as tough my power steering was out. Fast forward to March 2019 and the problem got worse. I would be driving and the stabilitrak light would come on, truck shuts off and then comes right back on. Yeah. It literally shuts off by itself and then cuts right back on by itself. I did my research and I replaced the steering angle sensor. It fixed the problem. Now the past few weeks the problem came back. My wife and I drove to NC and the truck did the same thing. It cut off 12 times that day. It didn’t matter how slow or fast I was going it still would shut off and cut back on. Last weekend I stopped at a gas station and then the truck didn’t even start. No lights came on when I opened the door and nothing when I turned the key. It’s in the shop now and they don’t even know what the problem is. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
  6. Just purchased a used 2014 v6 Silverado with only 36600 miles. Have terrible shudder when switching from v6 to v4 or back. Service manager only response was don't use it, use the manual shift and stay in 5 gear. Connected GM and they say nothing we can do . Been a GM owner for 50 years but no more , I think I'm going Toyota. Dealer sold me a lemon
  7. I decided after a week of having the Crew that the factory non-Bose system really sucks. I will be installing an Audio Control LC6i to convert the factory signals over to RCA. I am running 2 Rockford amps, a Power T400-4 for the doors, and a Power T400-2 for the sub. The door speakers are Rockford P1675 3-ways in the front doors, and P165 2-ways in the rear doors. I am using a single 12" Rockford P3SD4 under the driver's side rear seat in a Subthump box. (http://subthump.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_72&products_id=457) The power and ground will be Lightning Audio 1/0 gauge to the back, and then 4 gauge to the amps. Running 12 gauge speaker wire to all. I'm going to try leaving the dash speakers hooked up to the factory outputs, just to have some fill in up front. Lots of install pics to come.
  8. Hey guys, Sorry if this has been already posted or discussed before! My dad and I put on longtube headers on my 2014 silverado. We had a helluva time getting the driver side header on from the bottom - up. So we decided to disconnect the steering shaft to give myself room to drop the header down. We got it all installed with relative ease after that and tightened down both bolts on the steering shaft. The next day I tried to remote start my truck and the once I press the remote start, my lights flash as if the truck recognizes it but doesn't try to turnover or anything. The steering is fine once I start the truck, but I noticed that my steering wheel gets locked more often now and I have to giggle the wheel back and forth to unlock the ignition to get my key in. I was wondering if anyone had advice or a video or putting the steering shaft together and see what we did wrong. Thanks
  9. Hi, I just purchased a house with a garage and my 2014 Silverado is exhibiting the Homelink transmitter only working at short range to open the garage door. It will work in the garage sitting under the opener, but not from outside the door. On this forum, I found reference to a TSB related to this. I found it out on the web as TSB# 16-NA-306. Problem is that my truck is out of warranty. I just sent a message to Chevrolet to see if they will do something for me since I didn't have the opportunity to try out the home link transmitter since I haven't had a garage until now! Has anyone else had any luck with this type of request? I'm hopping they'll do some sort of exception for me. Especially since I previously owned a Silverado and my wife has an Imapala. My Dad also has a Colorado. Quite the Chevy family
  10. Hey Forum - Any idea what the part number is for the puddle lamps on the bottom of the exterior mirrors? I have the heated/power mirror (not the larger tow mirror). Can't find anything on this at the moment. Anything aftermarket or better than stock would be good information too. I found this listing, but it doesn't list the puddle lamp on the bottom: https://www.oempartsquick.com/oem-parts/gm-mirror-assembly-20979683?origin=pla&medium=super&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4v-_3ozA3gIVxI2zCh06MgrgEAQYASABEgJbSfD_BwE
  11. Hello All, This is my first time posting in this forum!! Just bought a DiabloSport Itune I3 Platinum Programmer. I am looking for some decisive direction as well as suggestions on the best parameters for tuning my truck with the I3 Platinum. Specs of Truck: 2014 Silverado Z71 LTZ 2WD Crew Cab Rough Country leveling kit installed 33" x 12.5" x 22" Nitto Terra Grappler G2 A/T tires 5.3L Ecotec flex engine K & N Cold Air Intake installed Gentle 46k miles I RUN 93 OCTANE IN THIS TRUCK Being a 2 wheel drive (It Does have the Z71 package, Rancho shocks, etc...) Obviously it raked in the front. First thing I did was put the K&N CAI on and it was like a rocket in Manual 5 gear mode, when I shifted through the gears myself. After leveling kit and 33's with aggressive tread, it was complete garbage. No power, confused shift points, almost like missing. Just a hot mess. So I bought the Intune I3 first, rather than switching to a 4.10 gear (which I may do later). Already turned off AFM and that was immediately effective. Also, 15% throttle boost. Can anyone suggest the best parameters to make this bad boy get up and GO!!?? I would like to know if there is a good idea on what ECM and TCM adjustments should be made to not only get that stock power back on 33's. But also get good fuel economy. The standard Diablo Flex, Jammer and 91 tunes don't seem to help a whole lot. Still bogs down and takes forever to get through 1st and 2nd gear. Anybody know about these tuners on a 14 Silverado with 33's?!?!?! Please help!!! Alan
  12. I have read a couple of threads on here about a popping noise from the shocks, most are talking about the front shocks. So, my 2014 Silverado Crew cab 4x4 starting making what i can only describe as a "exhaust pipe bumping into the frame" noise, then it stopped. i was under the truck last night looking to see if i had the JL1 brake controller when i noticed the drivers side rear shock top mount bolt was gone and the shock was fully extended, laying on the spare, a quick jaunt to the parts store and 45 min later, no problem. now this morning i notice my noise is back, could this be a faulty shock? how could i "lose" a shock bolt?
  13. Hey Forum, I got stuck yesterday helping a local sheriff move a pine tree out of the highway, so now I am looking for a winch for my truck. Does anyone have a front winch on your 2014 silverado 1500? I added a few pics of the event below.
  14. As the title says, anybody still love their 2015 or 2015 silverado? I recently purchased a 2014 V6 4wd, used with 70k miles, 1 owner - clean carfax/autofax - seemed to be well maintained. After I bought it, I read all about the bad stuff that can happen, luckily my truck so far drives smooth (maybe minor vibration around 85 mph but I rarely drive that fast) and no flair shifting. Does have a mild engine tick noise but nothing major, AC still works. So naturally my anxiety kicks in after reading some stuff on this forum so really just wondering if anybody out there has one that they still really like? So far mine is great, and hoping it stays that way. My previous truck was an 04 colorado, base model - stick shift, roll down windows, no auto locks no nothing. Bought it for 8500 out the door with 85k miles on it back in 2010. It lasted me 8 years with little maintenance and recently died. Hoping this truck will last me as long but when you read up on them its all doom and gloom as far as GM trucks go. But I am sure that ford/dodge etc... all have their fair share of problems too. And as with any used vehicle, you're always taking a risk, I get that. Anybody willing to share their thoughts? And if this is a repeat I apologize, new to the forums. Thanks, Zach
  15. My truck had the A/C compressor lock up and break the belt so the truck was at the dealer a few days. Now the backup camera is messed up. I'm wondering what they could of done to cause the problem? Anyone have any ideas? Have you seen this before?
  16. Okay, so I have a 2014 4wd Silverado on 35's and I have a 3.5 inch leveling spacer on top of my strut. I ordered a 2" leveling kit that goes on the bottom, so I would be stacking leveling kits for a combined height of 5.5 inches of lift. The only problem is all the other components. I know my upper control arms couldn't take that, but I cant find any UCA's that fit 5.5 inches of lift, only 3.5 at the most. Any suggestions on how i could stack the kits and not mess anything up? Also, I believe the UCA's are aluminum, I haven't looked in a while and I forgot. BTW mine is the one on the left.
  17. Hey Guys, My tuner came in yesterday and I plan on tinkering with it this weekend. I thought it was odd that it didn't come with any manual and only a cd, I had to go with Hypertech because I live in CA and of course they are ridiculous about everything.. Anyways, I was hoping someone could drop some knowledge on me for the 2014 Silverado and how the tuner performed. If they like the performance or power tune better and what are the pros and cons of each? Benefits/Cons of turning off AFM? Did you feel a big change turning off V4? Also, My Speedo is off by about 6 mph when I get above 45+mph so I need to calibrate that as well. I have the stock tires so I'm not sure how or when it got out of calibration but it is. Any help on that front would also be appreciated. Those are the major changes I wanted to make. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  18. I am an original owner of my 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 v8 LT Crewcab w standard box. 3 years 43000 miles in. 2 months ago I noticed the oil pressure which normally looms at 40 psi was raising up to 70 psi on fast accelleration. I started checking oil level and found I was within range. 1 month later I approached a stop light and when I came to a complete stop I looked down to see the pressure at 30 psi (I have nevery seen that before). Gas milage was normal still after observing for 2 months. I did some searchING online here and there but was not seeing angone facing the situation with the new 2014 engine. Last week I headed off to the high mountains near Leadville colorado and pulling a small 20 foot camper trailer. When it came to i70 up and down the eisenhower pass and independence pass there's was no avoiding the high pressure. When the motor is running under 3000 rpms pressure has always stayed in the 40 psi neighborhood. With trailer assist downhill or pulling uphill when pres would get up to 4000 or more the pressure would rise to 60. But as soon as the engine geared back down and rpms were in the 2000 to 3000 range pressure stayed at 40 psi. Then... after 4 days going to and from the lake my low oil light came on right as I was getting to my camp. I checked the oil level and wow the dip stick was low. I put in 1.5 quarts and crossed fingers for the 320 mile trip home. As soon as I was home I checked the oil level and it was within range. I changed my oil mobile1 0-20 dexos and filter (wix). Never the less the pressure issue is still there. I plan to take it into the dealership but I wanted to share and get and friendly feedback I can take with me to the shop to make sure I am not given the run around. My guesses are 1 there is a blocked channel, 2 bad pressure relief valve failure, 3 bad oil pump, 4 oil sending unit, 5 magic that makes 1.5 quarts of oil dissappear. Thanks all
  19. Hello all, I just traded my ultra reliable commuter car (2014 Corolla S) in for a 2014 Silverado LT Crew Cab 4x4 with the 5.3l. I've had a number of chevy trucks over the years, and never experienced any problems. Since I have recently cut down on my commute to work, I decided to make a 2014 silverado/sierra my daily driver. I bought this truck over the weekend. I wasn't thrilled about the wheels / tires (305/45r22's on 22' wheels), and I planned to replace in the next few weeks. However, I was happy with what appears to be a 2-2.5" level kit already installed. During the test drives, I didn't notice any of the "Chevy Shake" or any clicking with the steering wheel. However, during the last 3-4 days, the steering wheel has begun to noticeably 'click' when I turn at a stop or low speeds. Clicking is worse when turning left than right. I have done quite a bit of research over the last few hours, and it appears I am not the only one with this issue. The problem is, I bought the car used with 61,000 miles on it. I got (what I thought) was a great deal on it, but now I am second guessing my purchase. Based on my research, I need to identify the lift kit before I do anything else. Please help!!! I am also open to other advice if someone has discovered a cure that I may have missed. I will post pics below. I will also post a video as soon as I figure out how to do so on this site.
  20. Hey Forum, It's getting to be around that time for new tires on my 2014 Silverado Z71 (Have 2" leveling kit on it). If I add 2" wheel spacers, I think I can negate the rubbing issue I've read about on here. My thought on this is that since a 305/55/R20 is a 12" wide tire, and the stock 275/55R20 is 10.8" wide, adding 2" spacers should fix that issue I guess. However, I'm also not sure if the 305 tire will even fit correctly on the stock 20" chrome wheels. I used https://tiresize.com/calculator/for comparing the tire sizes (attached). Stock tire: Goodyear Wrangler SR-A, 275/55R20 Want to upgrade to: Cooper Discoverer S/T MAXX, 305/55R20 Tire Size Service Description UTQG Load Range Sidewall Approved Rim Width Measured Rim Width Section Width Overall Diameter Tread Width Tire Weight Max Load Tread Depth (1/32") LT305/55R20 121\118Q (Blank) E BLK 8.5 - 11 9.5 12.5 33.43 10.28 68 lbs 3195 18.5 What do you guys think?
  21. I'm looking to do the two led fog light pods in each of my fog light housing. I was wondering which brackets, pods and possibly wiring that I may need. I see the rigid industry brackets on their website but those are recommended for a different style of led pods than what I am interested in. I was just looking for some guidance, if anyone can help that'd be great!
  22. The Chevy Silverado 2014 and GMC Sierra 2014 models look again a plethora of updates in design. Word is that the trucks will be on an all-new chassis that maintains rigidity but with newer designs sheds weight. It seems as though the GM engineers are taking on weight savings as a priority for the new trucks as much as the design team has been working on aerodynamics in order to cut down overall drag at highway speeds. More than likely we will still see similar width of the truck with the front fascia containing smooth lines and actuated vents that close at highway speeds in order to move more air around the truck creating less drag. As for the engines it will be going in to the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado we might see a base model engine similar to that used in the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro RS. It may keep the 323 hp or they may sacrifice some horsepower in order to deliver more torque. There is word however that the GM engineers have been working on a six cylinder with forced induction and direct injection that will deliver fuel economy of a six cylinder but the power of an eight cylinder. As far as the eight cylinder engines we will see similar technology used in the 2014 Chevy Corvette that uses direct injection and higher compression ratios in order to achieve more power through lesson liters. And finally word is that the trucks will also receive an eight speed transmission in order to keep the engine revs low. Chevy Silverado 2014 Raptor Hunter? http://gearheads.org...silverado-2014/ I found this and maybe some of this is in the new 2014 Silverado.
  23. Has anyone bought and installed a black bow tie yet? I bought a black one for my truck. The removal instructions have you drilling out the gold stock one. I'm curious if anyone has done this yet. How's it look? Does the two way tape seem to hold tight? Any advice is appreciated, I'm a little leery on drilling into a brand new 50k truck!
  24. Hi all, I really want to put some factory 20's or 22's on my 2014 Silverado 1500, but when I go to the dealers website I can't believe how much they cost! I'm talking about they want me to spend $5000 for rims and tires and all the good stuff like TPMS sensors, lugs, etc. Sooooooooooo I went on ebay and saw that they have factory wheels on there "take offs", which is fine with me, but when I asked a friend about it, he said "beware of the knock offs". I don't want knock offs, that's for sure. How can I tell if someone who claims to be selling OEM wheels isn't just trying to get over on me? How can I tell if the wheels are truly OEM/Factory and not just a knock off? Are there any identifying markings? One of my friends told me they are stamped. Is that the best way to tell if they're legit? How do I cross reference this to be sure I'm not getting hood-winked?! LOL
