  1. Hi all I got a 2019 Denali Sierra, I have read all these post and they say turn off auto highbeam use the button on the end of the turn signal, but i have no button on mine like the other 2019s i have looked at. does anyone know if there is a button or switch to turn off and on. other than turning headlights on manual or turning foglights on
  2. 2015 chevy 1500.. 3400 miles. A couple of times the heat didn't work. It always did "next time".. the other day I had to take a 3 hour drive.. it didn't work the whole way there...stopped for an hour..headed back still with no heat (it was 42* so it was not pleasant) Took to dealer - they said they cant find anything wrong, of course, and of course the he was working fine. Its only done this a couple of times in the past 2 months now. Anyone experienced anything similar? It blows out air, and it will adjust the fan speed properly (or what I'm guessing WOULD be properly if it was blowing out heat) based on the temp of the cab. Even when taken off of auto and just turned temp to hi and fan speed up, with AC button off, it was still blowing cold air. Any ideas? Could it somehow be user error? (doubtful) Also when the AC button is on, even when its on heat, is the AC really still running? seems dumb that lights always on even when you have the temp high and its blowing heat.
  3. Hey everyone, So i just purchased my first Silverado used and immediately the gf and I notice a high frequency noise. The truck is a 2016 LT and when I test drove the truck we noticed nothing odd. after the salesman gave me a rundown on everything and how it works. He then put the truck in 4x4 auto and was explaining the 4x4 stuff and then onto onstar. We left the dealership and immediately turned around and asked for him to hop in. He witnessed the noise and scheduled service to fix the problem. They gave me a bulletin for the transfer case and claim that is the noise when the transfer case is running. it sounds like a high frequency electrical noise. I have tried searching the forums and internet with no luck. I'm ready to try and just purchase a new switch and see if that solves the problem. any thoughts or advice would be great. When I put the vehicle in 2H I get zero noise from switch, when its in 4Auto or 4x4 then you can here the noise come and go randomly.
  4. Well, I was just reading an article/post about push button 4wd. I was thinking I was pretty smart for getting the manual shift transfer case. I should have paid more attention to the poster who said auto locking hubs are still a week point. Now we are stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck. The hubs went from squeal to grind in about 20-30 miles on the way back from Glacier National Park, an easy fix if I was home. So this is just a heads up if you're close to 150k miles & curious, auto locking hubs cost about a grand to replace. Manual conversion kits can be had for under $2k. Wish I had done more PM.
  5. I apologize, I'm 56 years old and not sure to the dynamics or protocol of a form. I have a 2017 Silverado and discovered today that it is possible to roll down all the windows from the key fob. I regularly in the summer park my car with the windows cracked an 1" to 4"s to help let the heat in the car vent out. I'm surprised that cars don't have the feature to leave the windows cracked and as soon as the car detects rain falling automatically rolling up the windows without the owner needing to do anything. My question, Is there away to roll up the windows by app or key fob if I see it start raining?
  6. I found it from amazonLaunch CReader 3001,here shows $24.99 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CH4D68Q/Launch Launch X431 DIAGUN IV,here shows $549 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072FHLYRY/ That price is big difference,how to choose it ?
  7. Just wondering how to adjust presets for auto start. Heat comes on every time I use auto start and would like it to stay off until I turn it on. Any help is appreciated.
  8. Hey guys I'm having a bit of trouble connecting my Nexus 5x phone to my factory radio for Android Auto. I've chatted with Chevy via their online chat and they said the truck was compatible and available for the Android Auto update In an un-related case I had the truck in at a local GMC dealer who replaced the radio buttons due to the "radio" button sticking when I bought the truck and asked them to make sure the radio was up-to-date so I can use Android Auto. After getting the truck back the dealership said the radio was already up-to-date. When I plug in my phone to the USB in the center console or glove box the Projection button on the radio never changes to Android Auto. I again chatted with Chevy via online chat and they said I should be seeing an option under settings called "Android Auto" but the only thing I see and Apple Car Play or something along those lines. Can anyone that does have Android Auto working share what version your radio is using? Below is my version numbers. The truck is a 2016 Silverado LT Z71 with the I05 radio. software 84028483 grace note 23199236
  9. Just noticed that the little grille above the driver seat is actually a microphone, not the aspirator sensor for auto hvac setting as with my past trucks. Does anyone know if there is still an ambient temp aspirator somewhere or is it just recirculating a bit of inside air back into the dash to a sensor there. Also, I'm noticing that the new truck does not seem to regulate the inside air temp as well as my 08 and the A/C is nowhere NEAR as cold. I'm going to have them check it at my first service coming up here.
  10. So I'm a little confused on the HVAC controls on my LTZ. In the good old days (GMT-400 and maybe 800's) you could switch the AC compressor off by pushing the AC button, no matter how hot or cold you set the temp knob or button to. On the current truck that doesn't seem to be the case. If I set the temp to say, 67, the truck keeps on cooling it seems, no matter if I have AC button on or not. So what gives? Obviously the HVAC system is basically doing its own thing to keep the temp where I set it. This is with the system NOT set to auto, btw. Can someone in the know shed some light on the technical operation of the system? Maybe a PDF from GM explains it somewhere?
  11. 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.
  12. As I'm sure many of you folks are aware, they're adding a "projection" option to the 2016 Silverados and Sierras within Mylink/Intellilink. Do any of you know if it would be possible to add these features to a 2014-15 Silverado via a software flash, HMI swap (as some people already do to upgrade to nav), or other means? Any info or insight would be appreciated. I don't care much for factory navigation, but having Google Maps on my truck's display would be awesome.
  13. I have always been suspicious about electronics that are labeled "Auto", can someone explain to me what the Auto under 4x4 knob in my 2014 1500 GMC Sierra is really doing? Is it "auto" as in variable power distributed between 4 wheels based on tire traction? Like AWD? 4x4 under low speed and switches back to 2wd above a certain speed? This is not very clear in the user manual, how does it know when to switch to 4x4 is the real core information needed, "based on driving conditions" is not very clear to me. AUTO (Automatic Four-Wheel Drive): This setting is ideal for use when road surface traction conditions are variable. When driving the vehicle in AUTO, the front axle is engaged, and the vehicle's power is sent to the front and rear wheels automatically based on driving conditions. Driving in this mode results in slightly lower fuel economy than Two-Wheel Drive High. Also, when it is in 4x4, how much power is distributed to the front? How much to the back? or is it 50/50 on these trucks? If there is somewhere I can find thee information, great, because I do not know what key words to look for....Sorry!!
