  1. I purchased a new 2019 Silverado Trail Boss on 4/26/19. When I got home, with approximately 20 miles on it, I went to backup in the driveway and the camera became "fuzzy" with lines through it every time I touched the brake pedal. So I tried backing up several times and it repeatedly got "fuzzy" with lines running through the screen. After being in reverse for about 30 seconds or so the screen went blank and an error message appeared "service rear vision system". Within a moment or so the camera came back on however the guidelines for backing up where not there. I tried tapping the screen and hitting the home button but the only thing that got the guidelines to come back was to shift into park or drive then back into reverse. I called GM and they said to bring it to the dealer. I went back to the dealer and was given a loaner (2019 Silverado not the Trail Boss but with the same base package). I noticed this truck did the same thing. The dealer was able to replicate the issue in my vehicle as well as in several other similar model vehicles but stated at this time everything seems to being working "normally for this vehicle" and no issues were found. I find this to be alarming especially with 4 kids who could be at risk if the camera shuts down while backing up. I emailed GM my concern and received a rather generic response so I contacted the NHTSA and filed a formal complaint as this is a major safety concern. It appears that there are postings online about this issue from as far back as 9/2018 but the only thing GM has done is issue TSB's without an actual resolution. The dealer stated the common denominator was the trim level with the "cheaper smaller screen" and that the upper trim models didn't seem to be having this same issue. It would be beneficial for anyone else having this problem to contact the NHTSA with a formal complaint so that GM is forced to fix the underlying problem before someone gets hurt or killed. I was nervous switching from a Toyota to GM and this is my first "American Truck" since 1994 so it's not starting off well but I do like the truck otherwise. Thanks. Here is the link to file a complaint and the phone number to file a complaint is 1-888-327-4236 https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/
  2. Hello all, I have searched for ideas on this, and only found a few people who installed "mood lighting" inside the bumper step. I'm wondering how simple or effective it would be to get some real reverse flood lights inside the bumper step? I know you could fill the whole cavity with a tractor light and it would work, but I'd like to still be able to use the step if I need it. So has anyone installed an LED flush mount or similar light that actually throws enough light behind them to use for backing up/ doing work? How does it fit inside the curved surface of the step? The reason is I want the ability to have light behind me for plowing snow. I already replaced the factory reverse and cargo bulbs with LEDs, I think they work fairly nice, but they throw really straight back like a spotlight. I'm hoping to have a little wider path lit up. I don't want to cut the bumper or have lights hanging down below the bumper, but I know those would be alternative options. I know there have been a lot of creative people adding auxiliary lights to their trucks, so I'm hoping someone can show how you were able to do this.
  3. I have a 2014 Sierra 2500. It has the basic XM radio package with the green dot matrix display. I would like to add a high quality backup camera, as I use this truck on the farm every day and constantly need a camera to assist when hitching trailers. We have a 2016 Silverado 2500 and it has a wonderful OEM backup camera displayed on a nice big screen. Is it possible to add an OEM backup camera like this to my 2014? If not what is my best option for a good backup camera with good resolution and good resistance to shadowing?
  4. I was wondering if any of you have replaced the cargo and backup bulbs to LED. I have always used Diode Dynamics bulbs in the past because they are great, however I don't want to spend $170 on backup and cargo LED bulbs. I have Diode Dynamic license plate bulbs already because they weren't too high on the price. So if any of you guys replaced them and found bright white LED bulbs that aren't $170 like Diode Dynamics I want to know what brand you went with and where you bought them. Thanks!
  5. I'd like to get some information on adding a backup camera to my pickup. I have a 2009 Silverado 1500 LTZ with the Onstar/auto dimming mirror. I've seen some older after market models that have the camera in the tailgate handle bezel and the screen in the mirror. I'd like to get some first hand knowledge from anybody who has experience with these devices such as what models to look for, ease of installation/wiring and if there are any concerns one needs to keep in mind while shopping/installing. I don't use the Onstar system but I'd like to keep all of the functionality associated with the existing mirror. Thanks for any help!!
  6. I've had my truck about 10 days now, and one thing I noticed from day one is the backup camera/system complains that the rear parking assist is unavailable. My wife's 2014 Traverse has the sensors in the bumper that allow the system to know if something's close by, and then does the "beep beep beep" thing with the visual exclamation point on the screen. I don't have any of that - I assume by design. So that's all well and good. On the MyLink system, I go to Home -> Settings -> Vehicle -> Collision & (something) -> Park Assist. There are three options: off, on, and on with towbar attached. It defaults to on. And therein lies the problem. I believe, as does my dealer, that the problem is the software is trying to use the park assist software, but there's no park assist hardware for it to communicate with. No matter how many times I switch it to "off", the next time I turn the truck off and on again, the default goes back to "on." The DIC also chimes in with "Park Assist Temporarily Unavailable" during this time. I can dismiss it, but the "Rear Parking Assist Symbols Unavailable" message is white text on black background, boxed out at the top of the camera screen, taking up a good 1/6th or so of the screen real estate. I had the truck at the dealership this past weekend to get the bed liner and LED lights added and they were going to look at this issue, but ran out of time to get to it. I need to reschedule, but was hoping maybe there was some other option I'm missing, like a "Don't default to factory settings every time the truck is started" option I'm just not seeing. Also curious if anyone else has had this problem.
  7. Greetings, I have a late model Silverado Crew LT. I have a free high definition camera that I'd like to install as a back-up camera. I have a replacement bezel with a spot for the camera; and I'm using an aftermarket navigation/radio package (Advent OGM1) ready to accept camera inputs. Question: does the factory wiring harness in this truck contain a camera + and - running from the rear of the truck into the cab? I have a couple of wiring harness diagrams, but I'm struggling because the wire colors don't match what I'm seeing at the bundle of connectors at the rear of the truck (tucked up beside the spare). I'd certainly prefer to avoid having to run wiring if it's already there. Despite numerous inquiries I've never gotten a definitive answer. Some folks say "yes", but can't identify to wiring correctly. Others say I have to pull my own. In between is the right answer. It's hard to believe GM would have different harnesses and not include the wiring; but I've seen stranger things. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Cheers TY
  8. OK guys, here is the stereo everyone wants, the Advent OGM1, complete with DVD, NAV and backup camera. I had it installed in my 2009 GMC Sierra, and recently traded that truck for another brand. Everything worked great in it. It is just over a year old. This is the plug and play model and it is hard to distinguish it from the stock NAV system. IMO, this one sounds better than the stock radio, as it has a 9 band EQ. I paid quite a bit more than this for it, but the first $900 takes it (shipping included in the lower 48 states). I will accept Paypal. Let me know.
