I have found the FIX for broken rear camera cables. I broke my rear trailer camera and was able to replace the connector with a new connector setup. Works well and if your handy you can do it yourself for under 40 bucks!!! Contact me for parts and cost information… email [email protected]
Strange Connector Cut and Taped
Smitty27 posted a topic in GM-Trucks.com Comment BoxMy 2007 GMC Sierra SLT 5.3l has a couple wires cut near a connector and taped off located near the fuse box under hood. I'm second owner and I contacted the original owner and they said they dont know. It looks like a cable to an option that was disconnected? Anyone have any ideas? It's just one red and one black wire but the connector is large. Also nearby, there are two red wires with large round connectors rolled and neatly taped onto the conduit. Anyone know what those are for and where they originate? See photos. Thanks!
Transmission or something else ?
Elaine Clements Finn posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianGot a 1993 G20 Chevy Sports Van. She's a 5.7 V8 704r. So this was part of the seller's inheritance. She sat for almost one year and prior to owners death, had no Transmission issues. She drives in Neutral and has 0 ZERO Reverse. Like no bucking or any other sensation when it's in reverse. Her trans fluid was dark. I had all fluids changed today and asked the mechanic what he found in the transmission pan. He said there were a few shavings and the fluid was dark but that was it. He told me he was no Transmission guy but really felt like I did not have a transmission problem. The car acts like it has no reverse at all. I was told by a transmission guy to Rev it up a bit after warming it up. If the front clutch in the transmission is stuck together, I should feel it buck like it wants to go into reverse but it can't. I GOT nothing in reverse period. It drives in Neutral which the mechanics that did the fluid changes said they have never seen. Sooooo...do I have a transmission problem, a shift solenoid problem, some sort of cable that's come undone....detent, TV ? My fear is that this is something less expensive than a transmission rebuild and I don't know enough to know what it is ? What do you guys think ? For the record....after all the fluids were changed, it drove like a million bucks !
CB Antenna coax routing
Stonewood posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI successfully routed my CB antenna coax through the rear cabin vent that is located behind the right rear passenger seat. I found this YouTube video by Fondupot's Garage helpful. Easy Rear Seat Removal - 2014-2017 GM Double Cab 1st. Remove the four nuts and two 10mm bolts securing right rear passenger seat in place. 2nd. Lift the seat up so the bracket on the back of the seat is clear of its receptacle. 3rd. Gain access to the vent located behind the insulating material. 4th. Route the coax down between the bed and the cab . I used a closed zip tie to grab the coax connector and pull it through the vent into the cab. 5. Remove the plastic cap in the forward right side of the bed. Route the coax through the bed. My magnetic base antenna just sits in in the bed so it clears the garage door. There is enough slack in the coax to place the antenna on top of the cab for long distance travels. 6. Route the coax underneath the floor mats up to the CB. That's my Uniden Bearcat 880. After the install, I took my other toy out to play in the snow. Cheers to all. I hope this helps.
Automatic shift linkage
Dirtautoguy posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianOn my 1996 chevy Cheyenne the gear shift is loose and it won't let me take the key out sometime not a big deal if I wiggle the shifter up a little I can take it out. But I was wondering if there is a way to adjust that?
Aereo - Live streaming OTA HDTV
Zane posted a topic in Technology, Devices, & GamingAbout a month ago my wife and I cut the cable cord. We ditched Comcast and signed up for a sweet fiber internet deal with the phone company. Without cable, we're using a Roku, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, and an antenna to get our single local channel, ABC. Since dropping cable it's been hard to find everything we used to watch but I recently found a new service that nearly fills in the remaining few channels. www.aereo.com It's a controversial, but as of now completely legal, service that lets you rent an over-the-air antenna and virtual DVR. You're not paying for the HDTV feed, just renting the antenna, which makes it a neat legal side-step to restrictions on streaming local content. The benefit for me, is up in New Hampshire, I do not get many over the air digital signals. Despite being in the "Boston" market, I'm not in range of a single Boston channel. Aereo, however, lets me get every single over-the-air signal that's broadcast in Boston. It also includes a DVR. I can watch and use Aereo on my computer or Roku. Best of all, it's only $8/month. A steal compared to cable TV. Anyone else using Aereo? Until a few days ago, I never even knew this type of service existed!
GMC Savana Transmission wont fully shift
versa7623 posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianI have a 2004 GMC Savana 2500. This morning I noticed when driving it, it would shift really lightly into the next gear, like you would almost not even notice, different then normal though. After I parked for a bit I started the van back up and put into Reverse and nothing, so I tried Drive, and everything else nothing unless I rev it up I can see it move about an inch or two. Any Ideas, I just want to rule out everything before I take it in. Checked the trans oil OK and also that Park Neutral Position Switch on the side and the cable moves the arm on it. I drive this van everyday for work and if the transmission was going out wouldnt I notice any slippage or anything before, it was running great yesterday? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
