Have a 2020 GMC 2500 hd AT4 , and had it leveled, the headlight are now naturally aimed higher, and I’m getting flashed constantly. Is there any adjustment to aim the headlights on this truck? Also does anyone know if there is any aftermarket fog light bulbs or lights available to replace the stock ones that are worthless?
I wanted to get the pulse of how many people have successfully had their Denali/LED headlamps painted? I am very interested in doing mine but have 2 major concerns due to the cost of these OEM lights: - Is it REALLY possible to get these re-sealed adequately to the point I should have little to no concern of condensation ever occurring after spending some serious money to have these painted? - Speaking of serious money, what is a reasonable amount to expect to pay? I know you can infinitely increase the cost of these projects by adding different LED switchbacks, different projectors, doing intricate paintings vs. just satin black everything, etc. What I'm wanting falls somewhere in the middle. I want to upgrade the LED switchback module (bc why not if I'm already in $$$ to crack them open?) which runs around $150 I believe, and I want a simple Satin black + (maybe) a portion color-matched as well (still on the fence) as well as the GMC stamped in the chrome of the headlamps to be the red color of the emblems. Does anyone have any input/feedback/advice/recommendations on this? If I have it done, I'd potentially be willing to send them off to someone to have them done, but shipping is a major added cost. Is there anyone in on of the following locations (that is highly recommended as well as reasonable??): Houston, TX - Where I live Austin, TX San Antonio, TX Dallas, TX Ft. Worth, TX Baton Rouge, LA Oklahoma City, OK Any and all comments are highly appreciated!
I was wondering if anyone has tried the Putco XM-L2 or Nite-Lux LED headlamp conversion on a 2014 Sierra. According to Putco, the XM-L2 puts out 2000 lumens, and the Nite-Lux is 2500 lumens. I think this could be a boost, the Nite-Lux especially, to the poor headlamp design of the 2014 Sierra. But was curious if anyone had any experience with them.
Okay, so this represents a ton of firsts for me: First time posting in a forum, first time owning a truck (or any vehicle for that matter), and the first time working on a vehicle, so I humbly ask for your patience and thank you in advance. Please understand that my knowledge of vehicle mechanics is fairly limited, but I do a little better with electronics. I recently purchased a 1989 GMC 2500 for relatively cheap, and was assured that it was very mechanically sound, which it is, I think. I didn't realize that there were a lot of non-mechanical issues with it, even through a test drive. One such issue is with the speedometer. Usually, when it is colder outside, or I am making the first trip of the day, the speedometer works perfect. After that, though, the speedometer doesn't work, and I have to use the GPS on my phone. I have no idea where to start, other than pulling the dash apart, but then I will just get a stupid look on my face and not know what the crap is what. I did check all the fuses, and only one was blown, but more on that later. Another issue is with the odometer. It claims just under 104k on it, which is amazing, until you realize that it is horribly inaccurate. Whenever the speedometer is not working, the odometer is not turning, so I assume that they are linked somehow. However, when the speedometer is working, only the tenth of a mile wheel spins, and nothing clicks over. Both of these can wait, however, until after I get the safety inspection done that is required yearly by the great state of Utah. Other issues are a little more pressing, such as... Headlamps. How do I properly aim them? I did buy a Haynes repair manual from O'Riley Auto Parts, but it wasn't as specific as I would like. It listed two different kinds of headlights, and explained how to aim them, but what is on my truck looks like what both were described as. Another pressing issue is the tail lights. When the head lights are on, there is supposed to be a dim light in the tail lights, right? On the right side tail light, there is. On the left side, there isn't. On top of that, neither of the back up lights nor the license plate lights work. In addition to all this, the hazard lights don't work. Of course, it would help to check the hazard lights if I knew where the button to turn them on and off was located. Now to the blown fuse. This one boggles me. The fuse was for the park lights, also required by law. It is a 25 amp fuse, which is easy enough to replace. However, when I replace it, no matter any thing else in the vehicle, the park lights come on, along with the head lights, and there is nothing I can do to turn them off except for removing the fuse. The park lights come on without the button even being used. I know that this seems like a lot of questions to ask all in one post, and I'm sure that they are covered individually somewhere on the internet, but I really don't know if any of these problems are causing other problems to happen. I really need this truck to pass inspection, and I would really like to do the work myself, as I did get the truck so that I could learn this kind of stuff. And in case you are wondering how in the world did the previous owner get it to pass inspection, he had it registered in a county that doesn't require safety and emission checks. I really wish that I could do that, but I don't have a relative living in one of those counties. Anyway, I do appreciate any and all help that y'all can give. Like I said, I know very little about auto mechanics, but I am trying to learn. Thank you again.
