  1. 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
  2. Hi, I just bought my 2018 Silverado Midnight Edition 2500. Its a Duramax, LTZ plus Z71. Is it supposed to have LEd turn signals, tail lights, etc? Is;nt that part of the LTZ package? Thanks in advance
  3. 2020 2500 Duramax. Is anyone else having problems with their trailer lights? I’m having problems with the lights on all but one of my three trailers. Left turn signal and brake is not working. Took it to the dealer and they gave me some bs about how the truck can’t run led lights or more than 10 amps and blew me off. So essentially my brand new truck I bought for towing can’t tow a trailer with more than two tail lights. One of the two it isn’t working on is led and one is not and it runs the led lights just fine, just not the left turn or brake on both.
  4. Hi all!! I just picked up a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 and am still learning all the features of this truck. One thing I am finding difficult to figure out is how to dim the lights when you are driving. And I don't mean going from high beams to low beams. I mean turn off the main lights and just have the running lights on. This is a courtesy thing when driving through any checkpoint where there are guards. (Helps them keep their eye sight) Seems that just turning the knob to the off position does not turn them off while driving. (Does work while parked.) Any suggestions? I have attached a pic of the light knob.
  5. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra and I had a light bar in the back for the brake lights connected to the 4 plug trailer light connector, one morning I started my truck up and the light bar was on working fine five minutes later I go out to my truck and the light bar was off so initially I check the fuses and all seem goodthe blinker lights and brake lights work fine for the trailer but the running lights don't work so I unplug the bar and tested each connector with a tester and found the running lights don't work at the plug. is there anything I can check before I start following wires?
  6. I am trying to install courtesy lights with the GMC logo on my 2008 Sierra but after getting the first one drilled I realized there is not a light in the reflector on the door. Can anyone provide the related diagram for the wiring within the door / does anyone know if any of the door lights are only activated when the door is opened so that I can tie into those wires? It's a crew cab so I will be attempting to install them on all four doors. TIA.
  7. I currently drive my 2015 silverado 1500 regularly for work which involves various construction projects and survey work. I am looking to install flashing orange construction lights on my truck. I'm not looking for anything magnetic that you just put on the roof because I don't want to scratch my paint. I'm looking for something that could possibly be mounted in the front grill or the back taillights. I know plug and play kits are kinda hard to come by for this but I have no experience wiring anything. Any help is appreciated if you could point me into the right direction or provide your own opinion. Thank you
  8. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 WT crew cab passenger side complete headlight assembly chrome. The back of the dust covers have been cut open to fit LED lights as well as give more airflow to cool down. I am transferring the LED lights to my new headlight assembly and will put brand new bulbs in it. This will NOT fit the 1500. I’m certain It’s for 2014-2018 2500 & 3500 but I believe there’s other applications as well such as Tahoe and Suburban. Prices range from $625 to $800 for new OEM! I know, absolutely ridiculous!!! I have attached a couple of pictures with prices to show both Google and EBay. $500 includes free shipping! Last picture below is the actual headlight.
  9. My first post!! I purchased the OPT7 AURA Pro light kit to install on the floor board in my 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. (Hard to believe a $67,000 truck does not have lights there). Does anyone know which wire from the door that tells the dome light to come on when the door opens? Or have the wiring diagram?
  10. I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 LT CC. I recently purchased tow mirrors and installed them. The tow mirrors I purchased came with the wiring for the lighting if your truck didn’t come with mirror lighting. Theres four wires I need to splice in somewhere (per mirror) The wiring diagram they gave me was vague and I’m not too sure what all of the lights are: -Signal on the glass (+) -lights (-) -Reversing light (+) -Clearance light (+) I am an avionics guy for airplanes so I’d say I’m ok at wiring. I tried tapping the blinker wire into the BCM but blinker wouldn’t come on. I also read the you really shouldn’t splice into the BCM. Does Anyone have advice for running these wires and where I can tap into ? P.s. I know someone on here sells a harness, but I don’t want to spend extra money if I don’t have to. I already ran the wires in the cab.
  11. At night every once in a while my passenger side LED DRL and DRL tail light wont come on. Does anyone know the issue of this and what needs to be fixed? I've searched all of the place and haven't found any good answers.
  12. Quick how to and review of the Cab Over America wireless cab lights. Link to parts: https://caboveramerica.com/ The parts: For just under $400 you get a set of 5 battery powered wireless cab lights. Each light consists of 4 parts; the aluminum mounting plate, rubber gasket, LED/PV panel module, and the top lens. The top lenses can be had in clear, amber or smoke. In our case, we went with smoke. You also get two remotes to control the lights. Overall the quality is high and what I would expect from something in this price range. You also get some small lenses that can be place inside the cab lights to change the lights to amber while still using a clear or smoke outer lens. Lastly you are given a Cab Over America tape measure. We laid the tape out but ended up using a tape measure for all measurements. The install: First step was to decide on how you will be playing out the lights. We went with the two edge lights and 3 concentrated in the middle. Others may go with the even spacing all the way across, completely up to you. Here's a test fit. Also shows you the clearance with the shark fin. Remove the two nuts, lens, LED, and gasket so you are just left with the aluminum bracket with screw posts. It was easier to measure and mount the brackets without all the extra parts. We also bent the brackets a bit to fit the counter of the roof in the location they'd be installed. Here they are laid out in position. Wipe down the front 10" of your cab with Isopropyl alcohol. This is to prep the surface for better adhesion. Starting with the cab light nearest to the shark fin, measure 4.5" up from the windshield and 4.5" from the rain gutter to the front stud. This will locate the front mounting post. The rear post of the drivers side cab light should also be 4.5" from the gutter. Using a marker to make temp markings so when you remove the tape backing you can guide the bracket into position. Remove the tape backing, heat up the double stick tape, and install using your guidelines. Repeat for the passenger side light. Find the center of the windshield, measure 4.5" straight back, this will locate the front stud of the center light. Make sure the mounting bracket is straight and mark guide lined with a marker, remove tape backing, heat up the tape, then install. For the side center lights, we offset the lights 7.5" from the center light centerline. Measuring 7.5" from the center light's stud to the side light studs we were able to locate the side lights. Both the front and back studs of the side cab lights are 7.5" from the respective studs on the center light bracket. After all the metal brackets were installed the rubber gaskets were reinstalled, LED modules installed, and the lenses were screwed down. Last step was to sit back and enjoy the lights. They look great with the switchback mirrors! Here is a video of the install if you don't like reading! Thanks! WF41
  13. Hello everyone. I purchased a complete set of LED bulbs to replace all the stock bulbs for my 2012 GMC Sierra 2500 HD. In addition, I upgraded the tail lights and the head light assemblies as well to house these new bulbs. I'm very happy with the complete change-over except for the hyper flash issue I'm having with the new LED turn signals. Originally, I thought I could just replace the original flasher for an LED flasher that doesn't monitor the load on the circuit and therefore operates normally with the light-loaded LED upgrade. Turns out that the 2012 doesn't have a flasher and it's the BCM that controls the turn signal lights. From what I've researched, it appears that the BCM can be programmed to allow the use of LED's by changing the configuration of the BCM to a "cab/chassis" setup where the vehicle would accept the LED tail lights. I'm guessing that with changing everything including front turn signal bulbs to LED, the BCM reprogram to "cab/chassis" will not fix my issue because I've changed the front turn signals to LED as well. The other option I've researched is installing load resistors for every LED bulb. That seems a bit outrageous and hacking into the original wiring harness is not what I'd prefer as it makes it more susceptible to malfunction, corrosion, etc. not to mention the heat these resistors tend to give off, if installed improperly, can begin causing a whole other bundle of issues. So my question is, will the BCM reprogram resolve the hyper flash issue? Depending where you are but most dealers will charge $120 - $200 for the 3 minutes it takes to plug in but if it fixes the issue, I'd rather go that route instead of hacking my wiring harness. Thanks in advance for any help!
  14. In the lighting circuit description I finally found that states it is for a 97 truck, it lists "fender lamps" and I'm wondering which ones that means and if those are only on a C3500 Dually. The list shows: License Lamps Park Lamps Tail Lamps Ashtray Lamp Roof Marker Tail Gate Lamp Panel Lamps Trailer Tail Lamps Front Side Markers Fog Lamp Relay Door Switch Illumination Lamps Fender Lamps Headlight Switch Illumination Lamp. I don't have Roof Markers. I don't think I have Tail Gate Lamp. (assume that is suburban/tahoe) I have the factory trailer pigtail. I don't have a Fog Lamp Relay. I don't know what the Fender Lamps are. I don't think I have them. I can account for all the other stuff on the list.
  15. For anyone who's added their own lighting to their truck bed, what was your choice to powering them on? I tried adding a magnetic switch to the tailgate so that whenever it'd open the lights would come on. Wiring was done as instructions said and spent hours on it trying to get it to work. But I was left with the option with turning them on whenever I hit the Cargo light button inside the Cab.
  16. Have 4 - 300 watt light bars on my roof rack and 4 - 103 watt cree’s on the winch mount. Decided to run all the wiring to a central location vs mix and match I did over time. So purchased a 6 rocker switch panel with 3 12V outlets, double row. Went back-and-forth a week trying to think in my head where I wanted to mount it to make it easily accessible, as I live in the mountains and when oncoming traffic is coming I need to be able to shut them off immediately! I knew overhead was the best place but didn’t want to go through the trouble. However now that it’s done it really wasn’t that much of an issue at all. I cut the sunglass holder 3/4 of the way out and it only over fills the entire consul by about a 1/4 inch. If I hadn’t already bought this panel and knew today was the only day I could do the project for a few weeks, I would have waited and not used the 3 outlets and just went with a single row panel of 6 (8 best) rocker switches as that would’ve been very neat, clean and looked much more custom! For anyone looking to do it, the absolute best looking would be 8 rocker switches on a single row panel for an absolute perfect fit! But I was impatient and wasn’t going to toss $50 out the door for the panel I had so wound up force fitting into the console. This doesn’t look horrible and I think I’ll be able to live with it but if it gets the best of me and my OCD, I can always order a new console with the 8 switches as the wiring is already there and would be a simple project. Any questions feel free to ask! I’ll post pictures shortly.
  17. Hi All, I was investigating the radio/ac/heat/lights and 4x4 knob lights to see if I could change them to what I desire in my truck and found they are circuit board LED's. Does anyone have any experience with these and if so, I would like to pick your brain. They are VERY tiny and I'd need to find some that match with a different color. I'm looking for a true blue, instead of the blue/teal that these are. This is my personal preference so, please refrain from negative comments. Everyone has their personal preferences/likes. Thank you all!
  18. I have a 2005 Sierra Crew Cab, Short Box, Z71. The dome lights do not come on when I open any doors, but the door lights come on. Any ideas?
  19. I have a 2007 GMC Sierra with a Duramax LBZ. My fog lights will not come on with the push button. I have checked all the relevant fuses. I removed the under hood relay and jumped from 30 to 87 and both fog lights come on but the indicator on the button does not. One of the other terminals (85 or 86) has full voltage on it. The other has around 10 volts. I read that the BCM (body control module) supplies a ground to this relay. Aside from replacing the BCM, does anyone have helpful advice? Thanks in advance
  20. I have a 2015 silverado from Canada I bought headlight covers and tail light covers for the truck not realizing that the lights stay on all the time while in drive is there a way to disable the drls while in gear.. doesn't look very good with lights on under the covers.. no drl relay that I could find
  21. I have a 2015 Sierra I just installed Putco LED in. They seems to just work when they please, one second there good, next there off. I bought them as a Kit. Had them 2 weeks. Is there any known issues or fix?? Hate to go back to bulbs ....
  22. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273226034501?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 Selling my brand new track grill still in the box if anyone is interested. This custom made grille is an exceptional eye catcher that will be sure to get you many looks, stares, and compliments. The grill has the word duramax in it, therefore it more so compliments the Diesel engine. Grille is brand new, still in the box. Also comes with 2 light bars already installed; with wiring harness.
  23. I am installing two led pods on my rear bumper, 2016 silverado 1500. I want to splice these pods to the cargo lights & bed led lights I have so the inside cargo switch in my center council will turn them on and off. I'm looking for a model that would allow me to turn all 3 lights on and off without needing to be I'm park... Is that possible? Appreciate and guidance! Thanks everyone! Funk
  24. I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best. - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock. - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being 2wd. - Change to an aftermarket air intake. - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit. - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit - Exhaust? - How to get more performance from the truck. Anything would help, Thanks
  25. Howdy folks, I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ that has an issue I have never seen. I am at 49,000 miles. This last weekend I drove to the airport and was away for 3 days. When I got back from my trip: I unlocked my truck, and as usual, all the courtesy lights come on. I got in and closed the doors, lights stayed on (specifically, the two dome lights by the sunglasses holder, and the two dome lights above the back seating area). Started it up, lights stayed on. Drove 45 miles home, lights stayed on the entire time. Pushing the buttons on the lights did nothing (could not turn them off manually). Parked in my driveway, turned the truck off, lights stayed on. Eventually they turned off (assumedly thanks to the battery rundown avoidance feature) This morning, got up to go to work and experienced the same thing (steps 1-5 above). I have found a number of forum posts from other forum sites regarding this issue, but they are all for older (pre-2014) trucks, and none of them had a solution anyway. I called my Chevy dealer service department and talked with someone there whom I trust and have been working with for 4 years now - he had no idea. Anyone here have any ideas? Fuses I should try and pull, etc? Thanks in advance.
