  1. Sorry in advance for length, but several problems and not all shared about them!!!! ?? Am I crazy? are there ghosts? is any of it real? and it all leads to trust! I know new vehicles have a lot of electronics and they are harder to track down when it only happens occasionally. To me it is the most frustrating to go to the dealer and say this happened, I heard this, the truck did this! and they come back with "Mechanic checked it out thoroughly and everything is OK!" You drive off asking yourself did I really see this? did I do something? did I hit a switch I shouldn't have? The dealer tells you "If it is intermittent, unless we see it here, we cant fix it" And now my Problem, search for help, and seeing if anyone else has seen this? 1. 2020 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD 6.6 Duramax Diesel. (Which driving off the lot I was so happy about) at about 200 miles I was diving around and noticed that the display in the cluster changed! I thought it was something I did and kind of ignored it. At 300 miles took it to the dealer, and explained the problem, got that look that says he doesn't want to look at it dummy! Later picked it up and was told I was problem, I must be doing it as mechanic says it is all good. and got told if it ain't doing it when you bring it in we wont find it unless it gives code! Left dealer but made sure display was at a known reference point. Later I saw it was at a different display again, so I did something you don't do often, got the manual out and read up on this. I leave the display on the economy setting just to see how It is doing and as a reference. Well it did do it and over time got worse! But not often enough to get the sound of "If it ain't doing it when you come in we won't find anything" I tried bumpy roads, hitting steering wheel, left turn, right turn, bump and turn, even took two boxes and taped over the switches on steering wheel. (Keeps the ghost out) anyway still changes, random and even saw it do it when shutting off, just as i pushed off button! Didn't repeat so dint take in.7,000 miles and dealer still says it must be me as Mechanic says no problems. But now read on as more ghosts! 2. DEF fluid, it is going someplace, that I know as I am feeding it to my truck and it keeps drinking. First incident was in Oklahoma, stopped, fueled up and filled DEF tank. Headed down the road and after Liver and cheese sandwich, singing to my self (about 100 - 120 miles) this thing called a Information display announced "DEF getting low" so I looked to see next fuel stop, and let the DEF display on, which said 4 green boxes above the empty (There are 8 boxes on display) My mind thought why and my analytical side said may go to a detail mode that shows more boxes before empty??? (Which I don't think it does) anyway 28 to 35 miles I watched one light after another go out as i pulled into the station. It took 6 gal to fill bought 3 of the blue Platinum, 2 full ones = 5 gal and about another gallon of the third. Now being a new to diesels guy thought this must be a "REGEN" ? which I have only seen displayed once since owning at around 400 to five hundred miles. I reading the manual again, and asking around i have been told that with only 8,000 miles on the truck, that my 17 to 19 gal of DEF fluid is high. (in history I had a check engine light and service message come on and stayed on two days then just went away, dealer I I stopped at said no codes, about 3,000 miles) Now in all this time I got a check engine light and service message again 7,000 miles, so took to dealer and in keeping truck for two days they couldn't find the reason but codes showed fuel heater! (BTW dealer said ck engine light was off next morning but showed codes, service light still on) ordered parts and to take it. (Four days of driving and service engine display stayed on the 4th day the service orange light came on. What happened next is combined with number 3 below.... Dealer replaced parts and i am again driving... I was told they have no explanation for DEF, and there is no gauge in DEF tank. ( So how does it know when getting low?) and why would that affect usage? 3. OK, what is next is mixed in with what you read above. On the road again with service message still on waiting for parts i went out to start truck and hit the switch, engine turning over and over and over, not starting and knowing something was wrong, hit the button again and kept cranking, seemed like at least 10 to 15 seconds and stopped on it's own. waited a few minutes and thought should i try again? I did and cranked for at least 5 to 8 seconds and started! whew, I took off and all seemed OK. stopped was in on business about 2 hours and came out and trucked cranked for again at least 5 seconds and started. good to go? well few miles latter stopped at Starbucks, came back out and engine started as normal! Put in reverse and camera came on, put in drive and took off. Few thousand feet and camera in back still on. I wanted navigation so I hit the home button, nothing, at 1/4 mile or more it switched at some point to front camera so i looked and found a turn in stop point at about 1 mile camera still to front and turned off truck. restarted and waited until all the screens settled. Put in reverse backed out and drive camera switched to front, driving again and seemed ok as camera went off about 1/4 to 1/3 mile navigation on.. I am good? Nope pulled up and in traffic and screen switched to front camera. I am watching traffic as i want to get off highway and check this out,when i noticed orange light in right mirror say vehicle there , but there wasn't any there in mirror glanced at left and orange light on, no cars either side so moved off road and as i stopped i saw center display changing screens like a deck of cards. Ok truck is now giving me the willies! took to dealer they put in parts and said no codes no problems, could not explain DEF usage said maybe part replaced. could not duplicate cranking so said no problem, said camera s OK not a problem so basically looked at me like I was an idiot and truck is OK. 4. Now i am at the point of TRUST, do you trust a life in a truck that does weird things? doesn't leave a trail, and makes you feel like no one believes you these problems happen? A. Cranking has occurred now three times in life of truck, last time it happened after parts replaced! B. center display has acted up since beginning, changing on its own, and the weird time it just kept changing. C. display not going off, locked on camera and or screen getting frozen on a certain display. once on cameras, once on apps, twice on phone screen. Finally was close to dealer and they got to see stuck screen and no touching or button combination would change it. (Waiting to hear form service manager) D. High DEF usage? or is it normal? since beginning. F. Center information Display going off twice with second time going off and back on after 15 to 30 miles, then off, but still random screen changes. G. last but not least is Trans temp. Something i don't normally look at if not towing. First time i saw was flat road and was changing screens it was at 260 i was at 75 and temp outside was at 85, i watched it drop to 170 after 30 miles and stayed that way for about 50 miles and stopped watching. Next time was at outside temp of about 70 75 degree, trans went fro 195 to 280 for about 10 miles and started dropping back to 165 then up to 195 then back to 165... don't watch it all the time but was told it was good and not outside of specs... My question why such a big fluctuation? and why change at all when not towing? So HELP,!!!! anyone else seeing odd things like this? How do you trust a vehicle that does this? Am I over reacting? is it a ghost? And my final question is what if something in the communications system, computer, was to go haywire? could it cause a situation that could cause an accident, loss of life and no one would ever know as the mechanic always says "Looks good, NO problems, NO codes" Sorry for length, but tried to keep it brief and still tell most of the story!
  2. I purchased my truck in February of 2016, and used Apple CarPlay from day one, and never had an issue. Fast forward two years to an Android phone. I plug in, expecting the same easy set up as my work truck (2018 Silverado), and nothing happens. I was confused, as I remember when I bought the truck it was advertised as supporting Apple Carplay/Android Auto. After checking through several forums and MyLink version numbers, I realized it needed an update. Called the dealer and set an appointment, but when I arrived, I was told this was a "customer pay" update, (if I remember correctly, as of April 2017?) and it would cost me ≈$50 to regain the functionality I purchased with the truck. Anyone else have this issue, and if so, what was the result?
  3. Hey all, we're a local Chevy dealer with a strong ecommerce presence. We have the lowest prices on the Kicker subwoofer package for the 2014+ Silverado & Sierra Crew & Double/Extended Cab sizes. Installation does not require dealer install. it is a plug and play package. We have guaranteed low prices that shouldn't be beat! GM offers a few versions of these units: -Double Cab and Crew Cab models have different parts numbers -GM offers just a sub upgrade, or the sub upgrade plus amplifier on the door speakers. *The standard Sub upgrade works with the Bose system. *The kit including Sub plus Amp on the door speakers will NOT work with Bose systems. For a price, please send us a message with your body style truck, and which kit you would be interested in plus your Zip Code for shipping. Everything is in stock ready to ship. Forum members will find that our prices on all GM accessories will be hard to beat. Please message me with any questions on this or any other accessory you may need for your truck. *** Currently running a little bit of a deeper discount on the crew cab models, with just the sub upgrade. Buy cheap, sell cheap is the name of the game ***
  4. Dealership says factory remote start can’t be added to a 2015 Silverado w/t and I have to go aftermarket. What should I do because they offered to install it but can’t they say.
  5. (Yes, this is really us ordering our truck!) Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 5/17/18 Someone ring the bell, today is the day that you can waltz on down to your Chevrolet and/or GMC dealer, sit down with a sales rep, and option out / submit the order for your brand new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Now, that said, you'll be shooting blind, as GM hasn't let us know yet how much the 2019's are going to cost. In fact, we don't even know how much horsepower the engines will be rated at..... BUT, we can in fact order them. So, GM-Trucks.com did. Here's what we found out. What You CAN Order As of today, (May 17th, 2018), you can place an order for an LT, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, or High Country for Silverado and only SLT/Denali for Sierra. Crew cabs are up first and are the only cab you can get as of today. Nearly every regular option is available to be ordered but specific trims have a better shot at being produced than unique combinations. What You CANNOT Order Reports of dealers offering to place orders for diesel engines are floating around on on our 2019 Silverado/Sierra Owners Facebook Group. The facts are, while a dealer can take your money for a deposit, they won't be able to order a new light-duty diesel yet. You also won't be able to order double cab or regular cab trucks. Be Careful! As of today, dealers know exactly how many new trucks they can order and how many of each color they can order. If you're submitting an order, make sure your dealership has the open allocation for both the truck AND the color you want. Meet GM-Trucks.com's 2019 Chevrolet Silverado In the interest of research and keeping the community informed, we marched on down to the dealer late this morning to talk shop and place an order. We have a lot of plans for our new 2019 that you'll hear about in a few months, so picking out the right trim was a little tougher than we thought. Although the LT Trail Boss was extremely tempting, we knew we needed the 6.2L, which you can't get on the Trail Boss. So strike that out. And, while the High Country was right up our alley, we didn't want to get what will likely be the most expensive Silverado ever sold either. That pretty much made us land squarely in the middle of the two and in the end we decided the LTZ trim level was right for our needs. It allows us to get the 6.2L V8 (of which we strangely don't know the output of yet) and GM's all new 10-speed automatic transmission. We also wanted to get a truck that was at least as nice as our 2011 GMC Sierra SLT All-Terrain. We love our heated leather seats and Bose audio on our 2011 and our new truck needed to have these options too. So, with that all in mind... here's how we optioned things out once we sat down to the table. -------------------------------------- 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD Crew Cab LTZ Northsky Blue Metallic Jet BLack Leather Interior Trim 6.2L V8 - L87 / 10-speed transmission - MQB Z71 Off-Road Package LTZ Preferred Equipment Group - 1LZ LTZ Convenenience Package - PCZ LTZ Convenenience Package II - PCN LTZ Plus Package - PDF Safety Package - PQB Power Up/Down Tailgate - QT6 20-inch Polished Wheels - RD2 Bose Sound System - UQA Premium Nav/Infotainment System - IOT -------------------------------------- Some of the cool stuff included in these packages Heated and ventilated front seats Heated Rear Outboard Seats Two 120-volt outlets (one inside, one in bed) HD Rear Vision Camera Rear Sliding Window Front/Rear Park Assist Rear Cross Traffic Alert / Side Blind Zone Alert We did not get Bedliner or rubber floor matts Heads up display or 360-degree camera Any accessories, step bars, or covers. (We have plans for all that stuff!) A sunroof (a weak attempt to save money) Our problem right now is that we don't know how much this truck will cost. We do have a general idea though. Based on 2018 pricing, we expect the MSRP on our 2019 to land between $54-56k dollars. All that's left is for the order to be submitted to GM (which the dealer's ordering guy will handle soon) and for GM to accept the order (who knows when?!). Production for our vehicle is expected to take place in late July or early August. Of course, we'll keep everyone in the loop on any updates we get as the process moves along. If you want to buy one of the first new Silverado or Sierra, this is the week you'll want to visit your dealer. Here's our actual order sheet listing the options we picked out Shout Out To Our Dealer I have to mention we wouldn't have been able to do ANY of this without some serious support from a dealer. Our dealer for this order is Banks Chevrolet in Concord, New Hampshire. The Sales Manager, Jeremy Chapman, and our Sales Consultant, Jeffrey Lavalley have gone out of their way to answer our detailed questions and work with us to get GM-Trucks.com a sick new project truck. Thank you Banks!
  6. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 5/21/18 This is might not be the most interesting of updates but we had to let everyone know we finally have our 2019 Silverado order number. This at least proves that the system is working and accepting new truck orders. And our number is............Order # WDPP57 Check out how we ordered our 2019 Silverado here. If you have access to GM's order tracking system, can you keep us in the loop? We hope to take delivery of our 2019 Silverado LTZ in late July or early August.
  7. Hey there I am a proud owner of a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. The issues I wanted to discuss is the new technology in the truck. What I'm referring to is the E assist system. Only 500 of these were released in California, I own one and love my truck but I believe this system is making the truck drive weird. I'm not sure if it's because it's trying to improve fuel economy or just faulty but when I am coming to a stop I can feel a clunk almost like I was rear ended, I can also feel it when taking off and it's annoying. I wanted to see if any of you have had similar problems in your truck and any advise you had or your experience. I brought this issue to the dealer twice and both times they found issues but none with the e assist system or transmission they claim. I have posted a link to a video of what happened on my last experience to my local dealer. Thanks for any help.
  8. Hey everyone, hoping someone can help, I am looking at buying an 07.5 Duramax vin 1GCHK23677F501774. The truck has 200k+ miles on it, which is common here in Montana, but looks really well maintained. Of course the current owner states that injectors were done but does not have any receipts. I am wondering if anyone has access to a service record lookup and see what they can find on this truck that has been replaced? Thanks!

  11. I am looking at a 2016 slt that I know my local dealer needs to get off the lot before the end of the year. It has a lift kit and some other custom work already done to it. They are listing it as $19,450 add on. I am trying to get an idea of what the real cost of the add ons are. Description: SCA true 6" suspension kit, SCA pocket style fender flares, 35" BF Goodrich all-terrain KO2 tires, black 5" oval wheel-to-wheel side steps, stainless steel dual performance exhaust, SCA engine management calibration, 20" Black Widow wheels, SCA brake caliper covers, Black Widow custom stitched headrests, red LED interior lighting, Black Widow badging, Black Widow "puddle" projector lighting.
  12. All, I started to notice a metallic/hollow clunk noise when backing up or moving over speedbumps, etc. I took it to the dealer where it could be replicated by shaking the ass end by pushing above either rear wheels. They spec'd out the rear end, and the backlash was fine. GM Tech told them to replace the passenger side axle bearings, both the inner ones near the pumpkin and the outer ones near the brakes. If this does not work, they are instructed to replace the entire rear axle assembly. My truck does have a slight vibration at 78mph, which RF balancing all4 tires helped, and the truck passed under spec on the picoscope. Has anyone else gone through this? All of the rear end gears are fine, just there is side to side play somewhere in there. There were not any metal shavings anywhere, and everything else looked okay. It's being worked on now, and we will see if the bearings fix the issue. On another note, the truck has been there since 12/10. They took their sweet time for sure, and kinda gave me the run around a bit. To make matters worse, they hit another car with my truck, but the damage was minimal and they fixed it, without telling me it happened until it was fixed. This lead me to the dealer to make sure they know that it was BS, and they agreed to fix another paint chip (from me) on the other side of the front bumper...that plastic piece which fills the gap between the grill and the bumper. I did not go there to get something for nothing, but I was not happy with the way it was handled, and I would have them fix the other paint issue at the same time at my cost. Any thoughts? I miss my truck. I'm in a 2015 Tahoe rental, and it's eh. Smells like ass from a previous smoker, no real vibrations, but it gave me a headache from the cabin pressure until I got used to it, which could have been caused by the ass smell. Thanks and merry Christmas all. Mike

    Day One

    From the album: My 2014 Silverado

    This is the first photo I took of the truck as soon as I brought it home.
  14. I signed a lease agreement on 5/23/15 through Collection GMC of Beachwood in Ohio. On the finance paperwork there is clearly a fee of $33.95 that is listed for license plates as well as the tax doc fee, tag, etc. The dealer called me up yesterday and said my plates are in and that it would cost me $44.95 and I would have to pay for them. I have leased many cars through BMW, Ally, and now GM Financial. This is the first time the dealership is asking me to pay additional money for license plates. USUALLY, the initial plates are included. Anyone have thoughts on this?
  15. So I just got a 14' Sierra SLT All terrain. When I got it, I took off the all terrain wheels and put on my own Fuel Pump 18's on there with some 33" tires. After a day, the new tire censors went out and couldn't read the pressure. I took it in and they told me that it's because the censors in my Fuel's are in the middle of the wheel, as opposed to the side or edge of it, and GM can't read the pressure on wheels like this. They told me I need to get new wheels/tires with the censors on the side to fix the problem and turn my light off. Any suggestions? Know of any wheels similar to the Fuel Pump 18's that have this feature? Thanks
  16. I just bought my first GMC. I got rid of my 2007 Tundra. I really enjoyed it but was upset at how much they think they're worth now. I got a fully loaded Sierra and don't feel screwed over. I also just had the best experiance with dealer service as well. I bought the black Denali 22s from a cheaper online website. They were brand new from GM but far less than dealer pricing. Today I went to have them put on. The service manager came out to tell me one was manufactured wrong, was out of round noticeably, and had to be replaced. He asked if I got them from the dealer. I told him no thinking I was screwed. He then went on to say since it was new from GM that they'll warranty it and replace it on Monday. I couldn't believe that they would willingly take on responsibility and replace it. Is this a normal thing or did I find the best dealership ever?
