  1. Hello everyone, On my 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali I did a hood air induction vent swap for a chrome vent cover and while I was at it I added Led RGB lights inside the vent taking care not to restrict the air flow. Has anyone else done any chrome or Led RGB mods? If so lets see them please.
  2. More specifically, Climate Control System backlighting. The backlighting is burned out for the lower right Air Delivery Mode Control button for my Climate Control System. Does anyone know how to replace the bulb behind this panel?
  3. Has anyone taken a Custom Trail Boss and done the LT Trail Boss fog lights on it? I am looking for a plug and play kit if there is one out on the market. I'm trying not to source every single individual part from GM. I'm pretty sure I would have to go get the BCM reprogrammed if I'm not mistaken.
  4. I am sure this has to bug other people the lack of lighting in the 2019 Silverado. Can people share what they have done about it if anything? It is really bugging me how little light Chevy designed into this model.
  5. Hi. Just wondering if anyone has changed out their front sidemarkers in their 2016-2018 Silverado 1500. Can’t find the access point for it, although I haven’t removed the headlight assemblies to look. Is it not just a standalone socket like the turn signal where you can just turn and pull it out? Thanks.
  6. Looking for more ideas on how to spruce up the Custom model front end but I'm having a hard time finding accessories specifically for the Custom model. Any ideas or help appreciated! I've currently added Fabtech 3" Stealth suspension lift, 35's, Fuel Titan 20x9, Phillips Diamond Vision Halogen HID highs and lows(very impressed), purchased but not installed yet the Daytime running lamp LED strip for above the Lowbeam lights.
  7. I want amber (not yellow) fog lights for my 2019 Colorado Z71. I can find them in LEDs, which my manual and 2 dealerships say not to use. If there is no CAN bus how can there be "feedback"? Who can explain this? Secondly, I cannot find amber halogens for the 5202 connection. Anybody got a lead on those? Thanks.
  8. Anyone know if it’s easy/ possible to re-route the task lights on the mirrors so that they work regardless of the vehicle being in park? Thanks
  9. Got my rear light bar installed in about 30 minutes. OPT7 60" Redline Flexible LED Tailgate Light Bar
  10. During a dark and rainy 3 am jumping of another truck, it became clear there is no lighting in the engine compartment of my 2018 Silverado. The previous truck had a light under the hood and the generation prior to that had a removable work light that could be placed on the locations. Not to mention that truck also had jumper cables builtin to jump Fords. So my question is has anyone added lighting under the hood? if so how?
  11. Hey guys, Quick question. I bought a 2014 Sierra SLT last week and took it up north to the cabin over the weekend. I drove through a lot of rain throughout the whole weekend. The truck was 2 days old with 400 miles on it and I noticed the inside of both healights were foggy one night, towards the bottom over the LED running light. Has anyone had this issue? Or has anyone herd of this being a problem? I am taking it back to the dealer this week for some gm accessories so I am interested to see what they say.

  13. I'm looking for examples/photos of accessory wiring in the engine bay. where did you put your relays & fuse blocks for accessories such as lighting
  14. I have the perimeter bed lighting option in my 2015. I was wondering if I can somehow tap into that wiring and add an led strip on the inside of my Diamondback truck cover. I’d like some sort of quick disconnect so I can still remove and replace the cover

  16. I am trying to replace the interior lighting in my Dad's truck for him since the stock lighting is so dim. There are 4 identical lights, two in the center ceiling console, and 2 in the front ceiling console. After going directly to the manufacturer to figure out what bulbs i needed to buy, they suggested the 921 Led Buld. This is not the correct bulb. Has anyone had any luck replacing these lights? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
  17. I'm working on an issue in another thread, but I came across something else that I thought might deserve a dedicated thread. I've been poking around in the rear heater lately, and then I went away for a bit. I guess I didn't connect the third brakelight connector. Anyone know where this is ? I've been looking, can't seem to find it. I'm sure I did something to knock it free or disconnected.
  18. Does anyone else have an issue with the high beam indicator light randomly coming on. Not the actual lights just the dash light
  19. I lurk around here a bit. I have got some great information from this forum. So thank you all for sharing your experiences. On a recent trip someone broke my passenger outside mirror on my 2009 Yukon XL SLT . So that started this whole project. The biggest one yet on this vehicle. So please bear with me as I explain everything. Also please make corrections to anything I write, I am not very good at the terminology used. So here goes... What I am trying to do? 1. Add LED lighting to the foot well area both in the front and rear seats. 2. Add LED lighting under the running boards and rear bumper. 3. Add LED lighting to each door panel, so it lights up when the door is open .​ What I have access to? 1. The Driver Side knee panel and fuse panels are open. 2. The Junction Box in the Driver Side Foot Well is open. 3. The door Panels are taken off. 4. Side view mirrors are completely disassembled for Fold Motor Repair. So the wires are sticking out of the little hole in the door.​ How I would like it to work? 1. The interior lighting will come on with the dome lighting. I would prefer that the foot well does not light up when the truck is on. So when I am driving and I turn on the dome light only the dome light comes on. This is only a preference. If it cannot be accomplished I am ok with it. 2. Door panel lights only come on when the door is opened. They should stay turned off if the door is closed . Again this is a preference. I can mount the light at the bottom of the panel so it is not a distraction. 3. Lights under the running boards should only come on when the truck is unlocked and when I turn off the car (Perhaps use it with Aproach and Exit Lighting). They should always stay off if the truck is on. So while I am driving they should never come on.​ I am upgrading from DL8 to DL3. The DL3 I got, have no puddle lamps. But it does have the white connector with six wires. I know that Light Blue and Yellow are the ones for folding motor. { On a side note... rather than changing and reprogramming the Window Switch modules, I am installing timed realys that will Fold And Unfold the Mirrors. } The way I am thinking to wire this up is as follows: Tap into dome light wire. If I understand correctly, there is a brown wire in the X14 Junction Box area. I will run this wire to Relay #1 just to charge or discharge the relay. The relay will then power (from X14 connector) all interior add on lighting, including foot well and door panels. Also it will run power to Relay 2. I am hoping to tap into ‘Ignition On’ wire somewhere that will charge or discharge Relay #2. This relay will be Always Closed (NC) until charged, at which time it will Open (NO) to stop power going to Outside lights. OR ... Relay 2 could be charged and discharged with the Approach and Exit Lighting . Then the exterior Lights will only come on when the Approach and Exit Lights come on. I hope everything is clear until this point. My questions: 1. Where is the best place to tap into Ignition on power? I prefer not to open the Steering Column. Is there any wire inside the truck that gets charged when the truck is started? Or would I have to tap in to II position of the key. OR... where is best place to tap into the Appraoch and Exit Circuit. 2. Is there power in the door (hopefully in the white connector) that I can tap into? 3. What is the best place to run the wire to the outside without drilling? I am hoping to utilize a predrilled hole to run the wire. I would prefer not to go thru the Firewall. 4. For the interior lighting, since I am running thru a relay, is there a way for it to have a “Diming to OFF” effect? Not really important. Any help will greatly be appreciated.
  20. 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.
  21. A.R.E. LED lighting options include: * Dome lights — Wired directly into the vehicle’s electrical system and offered with an optional prop switch, A.R.E. dome lights conveniently turn on and off when the door is opened and closed, or can be controlled with a manual on/off switch. * Rope lighting — High-intensity rope lighting offers versatility in lighting the interior of a truck cap or toolbox. Opt for a single four-foot rope at the center of the cap or use two parallel ropes with one on either side of the inside roof. Or, place them inside above windows, inside toolboxes or to illuminate the entire chamber. * Rigid Industries LED Lighting — A.R.E. has teamed with Rigid Industries, to offer ultra-bright work lights. Known for durability and brightness, Rigid Industries’ products offer a lifetime warranty. For nighttime work, choose 36-inch or 48-inch bar lighting, which can be positioned on the front of the cap to shine directly on the project at hand, or to light up an entire work space. * Rear door lighting — This new fixture replaces the optional incandescent 12-volt light the industry has used for decades. Much brighter than its predecessor, the light is mounted inside the truck cap above the rear door, allowing closer detail work, such as paperwork, without the need to hold a flashlight.. * Exterior lighting — A.R.E. offers lighting for up to 10 different locations on the rear quarters of the DCU, distributed based on the functionality required by the customer. Fleet and commercial customers can find more on A.R.E. Accessories' LED lighting and more at this link.

  23. Has anyone tried this single wire 4hi mode with the yellow wire located in the D3 hole of the power distribution box unDer the hood on 99-02 read about it on some other halfass forum and tried it on buddies hoe got nothing
  24. I've looked around the forums and online and haven't been able to get a straight answer. Is it possible to change the lights in the dash of the 2014+ GM trucks around the air and volume controls? I am aware GMC is red and Silverado is Blueish-Green but I am looking to change mine. Is there a kit or a way to replace them that anyone has found?
