Silverado DUAL Battery Wiring
h1000101b posted a topic in 2015-2019 Silverado & Sierra HD ModsI've read threads on here, read other threads (from other sites), spoke with people etc. MY MAIN GOAL OF THIS POST IS TO SEE IF ANYONE HAS ANY COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS ON MY WIRE DIAGRAM BEFORE I PULL MY TRUCK APART. THANK YOU My goal is to add the following: 1. High Output Alternator (320A Iraggi) 2. Add Second Battery (Optima Yellow Group Size D34-78) 3. Upgrade All Charging wires to 1/0 Gauge (GP car Audio Power Wire w/Big 3 kit) From what I gather, The route that i'm going to take is as follows: 1. Install the Alternator 2. Run 1/0 Gauge Ground from (-) of Alternator to Frame (Leave factory wire connected) and to (-) of Factory Battery 3. Run 1/0 Gauge Power from (+) of Alternator to (+) of Factory Battery (fused @ 320A) 4. Run 1/0 Gauge Power from (-) of Factory Battery to (-) of Second Battery and to Body Ground 5. Run 1/0 Gauge Power from (+) of Factory Battery (fused @ 320A) to (+) of Second Battery (fused @ 320A) 6. From there all Power needed for AUX Equipment (Amps, Rock Lights, Inverters, etc) will Run from the (+) of the Second Battery (Fused appropriately) I did a lot of research into this and the only things that had any second thoughts on were if I should run a relay or not and if i should run the 1/0 gauge wire through the current sensor. (not sure if it would even fit). I decided not to do either. The first of which I chose not to do, mainly for the fact that the relay has a voltage drop of its own (minor), but also, it's removal has been the fix for many people in car audio to reduce lights from flickering. The amount of battery capacity that I have won't have issues with me needing to isolate my batteries. The second of which I chose not to do, was only because I read a lot of posts (mainly in car audio forums) that didn't do this and had no issues. I feel that the current wire that is running through the sensor must suffice. I'm still a bit on the fence on this one. But, I could only find maybe 1 or 2 instances where people did this modification and it was for much smaller rated systems. Neither seemed to have any problems. I just tend to follow the majority of examples that don't have issues. I'm attaching my general wire layout. If anyone sees something or could have a rational discussion, please do. I'm all ears.
Dual Alternator Plate/Bracket
worktruck2011 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Has anyone hooked up dual alternators in a 1500 Silverado? I'm dealing with a 2011 that has a 5.3. Apparently GM used to have a factory plate for older generations of the Silverado to add the second alternator. I've found a 3rd party selling an adapter plate, idler pulley and belts for $215 but it seems awfully pricey for what they're selling.
So got an aftermarket dual touch screen for the truck. Got the wiring hooked up and ready. First stereo powers in and connects fine. No sound. Took it to a buddy who does stereo work. He does what he knows and still nothing. So thought maybe it was defective. I got a different stereo and still no change. I’ve seen thoughts about speakers grounding out, needing a pink amp trigger wire and the factory amp in safety mode. I don’t have the amp trigger wire in the factory harness. Just trying to get some insight and ideas without dropping $300

CLIMATE CONTROL ISSUE
JSFERMAN2010 posted a topic in 2015-2019 Silverado HD & Sierra HDI have a new 2015 LTZ dually with dual climate control, driver and passenger. Once in a while, without any discernible pattern, the passenger control knob will default to "HI" after starting the truck. Has anyone else ever seen this?
06 Sierra SLT - Heat won't stay on!
kda85 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500First time to post here... so my apologies for giving too little or too much info... Got a 2006 Sierra SLT Crew Cab Z71. Its just now getting cold enough for me to use the heat in the morning and for some reason it is acting crazy this year. No problems in the past. When my truck gets up to temperature I turned on the air and ran the digital temp number up 90 and nothing happened - air stayed cold. I turned the air off and then back on and it got hot immediately but 30-45 seconds later it returned to cold air. I repeated it a few times and it was hit or miss about 50/50 when the air would start blowing hot again (and it was hot - not warm so I don't think it has anything to do with the heater core). I have heard of the a/c being on and then going to hot but never the other way around. I do suspect that it wasn't actually going to a/c but to the ambient air outside the truck (40 degrees). It was like this on both the passenger and driver side - unlike when I hear of only one side acting crazy. Anybody ever experience this or know what is going on? How do I fix it? Can't go without heat - pretty soon I will have ice on my windshield that will need defrosting. Thanks in advance for the help!
True Dual Exhaust Pipes
patwtfd37 posted a topic in Gen III and IV Small Block & DrivetrainI have a 2003 GMC Sierra 4X4 with the 5.3L Vortec. It has the stock single exhaust on it. I want to convert it to true dual exhaust so it's it straight back from the manifolds. I also want glasspack exhaust, although I am open to suggestions. I want it to rumble all the time and then really sound amazing when stomping on it. Now I don't want it to be quite as loud and obnoxious as a straight pipe Harley, but it must have a nice low rumble. If anyone knows of a kit that can give me true dual pipes without any mufflers I would be interested. I am really liking the sounds of the true cherrybomb (or like) glasspacks. I've used them on other cars and SUV's before and really liked the sounds I got out of them.
