  1. Bought truck in July and had infotainment issues from the start, the screen is black but backlit, the screen displays but will not work with touch, sometimes the hard buttons will move it other times not. The climate control changes sometimes will display, loss of back up markers, sometimes loss of back up camera with a screen error of connection lost, audio is lost sometimes, CarPlay won't always sync and I'm sure other things I am forgetting as well. Only has issues on start up, never going down the road so I don't think its a lose or broken wire, improper pin alignment. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Its so random how long it doesn't work for, not very often stopping and starting will fix it, sometimes its a day or more before it works again. The radio was replaced at dealer, 2 weeks later it starts acting up again, dealer worked with TAC(?) to determine they were replacing the radio again, strike forced it to be delayed but eventually replaced, less than 2 weeks later same thing, then they replaced the screen/digitizer, I went to pick it up, started truck and screen was blank. Now after having my truck for about 3 weeks (this time) GM wants to try replacing the bus cable from radio to screen but they want me to not connect my iPhone as they think it could be causing the issue, even with video documentation showing my phone not plugged in and blue tooth disabled and 2 times with dealership mechanics seeing my phone in my pocket. My questions are - 1) anyone else have this issue? what was the fix? 2) What kind of compensation should I be seeking for 5, almost 6 months now of it not working right, repeated trips to dealership, long waits in lounge, being told it was fixed only to show up and it's not? I have kept extensive records for every time it happens, videos of probably half of the instances.
  2. Ok so I have looked everywhere and got some great info but can not find anyone who has installed a slim 8inch subwoofer behind the rear seat or under the passenger seat. I have a 2015 crew cab non Bose and my passenger seat is not power so I have some room. The Rockford P3SD48 P3 Punch Shallow mount 8-Inch DVC 4-Ohm Subwoofer I got only needs .40 cu ft per manufacture recomendations. So a pretty small sealed or ported box will do it. I got a Alpine MRV-M250 to power it. I'm going to run 4 awg marine power wire from my second battery and it should let me up the amp to 500w if this 8 inch does not cut it. As far as connections I'm pretty good to go but I'm looking for help with the placement of the sub box and would love to get everyone's thoughts. Not looking for a lots of bass just to help the sound quality out some.
  3. I wanted to start a seperate topic for this. My fm reception is to the point where I don't use the radio. The HD switches in and out to where you have to turn it off as well. I'd be looking to replace the radio with an aftermarket head unit but the integration with the my link probably makes it impossible. Please post up if your having issues.
  4. So my battery needed a jump on sunday leaving o'riley's. got them to give me a jump and as i'm driving home, the radio shuts off. now the tv only turns on when I put the truck in reverse. i checked the radio fuse and its good. also opened up the glove compartment and unplugged the blue cable for 15 sec like i saw in a youtube video. I should also add that im able to listen to the radio using the steering wheel controls but only for about 15 min before it shuts itself off.
  5. Hi people!!! I am little new in this truck world, I love my Silverado but I hate no to have all the functionality’s in the radio, I actually have a Silverado 2014 wt but I would like to update my radio, I see in a several pages selling the 7 or 8 inch screen, but I know this is not the only thing I have to change to make it work. I need your help please, what’s is the right way to do it with out change for an aftermarket radio, I can get the modules but anyway I don’t know if this really work. Thxs in advance!!!!
  6. Does anyone know if there are aftermarket general harnesses or loop harnesses that plug between the back of the infotainment system and the body harness? I want to be able to take the audio signal from each of the speakers, send it to the rear of the truck into a DSP and amp, and then back to the body harness and into the speakers. I don't want to cut factory wiring. I've checked Crutchfield and a little bit online but i don't seem to see anything for 2020. New to GM trucks and dealer is currently locating my truck for a dealer swap, and appreciate any help or input. Thanks MR
  7. Hey all, I will start from the beginning here. Purchased my new 2017 Sierra Elevation Edition in February 2017. Drove it off the lot with 6 miles on it. This is my first new vehicle so its been a little discerning to me that this has more issues than any used car I have owned before. A few weeks after owning the truck, my microphone stopped working for my phone calls and the onstar stopped working all together. My OnStar module died and they replaced it with a new one. About 5 thousand miles later, my trucks radio screen started randomly going black, turning off all sound, then coming back on again. It would resume where it last was, phone call still intact or radio still on the right station. This went on for about 2 weeks then my dash lit up and chimed at me, the radio turned off like it does I get a warning of a Power Steering Failure. I call my local shop and get it in there right away. The drive in, the power steering worked just fine. They said the reading came back as High Voltage, they updated the computer and sent me on my way. Fast Forward to 3 weeks later, my truck starts doing the radio off again but this time the dash lights all shut off too. I can't be sure but it seems to do it when its wet outside. It did not have problems after I was in the shop but it was also dry outside. I also noticed when this happens the voltmeter spikes high. I am dropping my truck off again the Tuesday after Christmas. Does anyone have experience with this before? The shop told me last time they have never seen this before. Thanks!
  8. I recently had a heater core leak in my 1999 chevy silverado and had an ASE certified shop replace the core and inspect the ac evaporator and actuators while replacing it. When I got the truck back the center bracket where the Radio and HVAC controls mount under the trim is offset, with the left side being lower than the right side. I also noted the fold down cupholder bolt points are not completely lined up with the trim that's over it. I contacted the shop to bring it back in under warranty but was wondering if anyone has a full dashboard diagram that might illustrate where the correct positions for the bracket underneath to attach is or has had any experience with this sort of reassembly issue before (I have extensively searched and came up empty). This isn't an area I have had a lot of experience with being a near full dash teardown and I like to know more of what I'm talking about to communicate well and to be a good customer.
  9. Hey everyone, I bought a 2010 1500 recently and only the front passenger speaker, tweeter and front driver side tweeter are working along with the radio itself. I tried changing the front driver side speaker with no luck. Are there any fuses for individual speakers?
  10. Had my truck worked on at a body shop(dent fix and new windshield) then straight to a proper detailing. I assume one of the two disconnected my batteries (L5P Durramax). Now, the buttons and controls on the steering wheel do not respond. Confirmed with both shops, nothing was disconnected from the steering column. Everything else, horn, dash, lights, radio, etc. All function correctly. Only the stero paddles, and menu nav buttons do not work. Scanned all the modules for codes and received back 2 codes in the Instrument Panel Cluster. DTC 1: B3622-39 Steering Wheel Controls Signal Circuit - Internal Malfunction - (No ****** Sherlock) DTC 2 : U1510-00 LIN Bus Lost Communication with Device 0 - (Ah yes, Device 0, obviously). I am not sold on the clock spring still as I don't have any SRS module codes. Repair manual says those codes together is a short to ground. Cheryl on-top was this YouTube video, Anyone have enough knowledge to help me figure if it's a bad module or a cut wire?
  11. The dealer is now installing the 3rd infotainment center XM radio since the truck was purchased new on January 26,2020. Has anyone else had this problem or similar? Thanks in advance.
  12. Can any give some insight on which wires are connected to which speakers on the green plug. I have attached a picture. There are a total of 10 wires and I’m assuming they are (LF+/-)(RF+/-), (RR+/-), (LR+/-) 12V and ground but do not know which goes to where. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
  13. Hi everybody! As some of you may know, I've been working hard to help the lovely members of this forums program some of their vehicles to add unique and exciting features to their trucks and cars.

  14. Just bought a brand new 2020 Trail Boss two days ago. Today I noticed that the radio/infotainment system is not turning off when the engine is shut off and the driver door opens, which should typically turn it off. Taking it to the dealer tomorrow to get it checked out. Anyone else have this issue? If so, were they able to fix it long term or is this a reoccurring issue? Thanks!
  15. I'm having issues with my 2016 Silverado 1500 LT's Radio going crazy changing screens and functions on its own. Is there a known issue that causes this malfunction?
  16. Good day Together I have a GMC Sierra 2013. Now I want to replace the radio and I bought a JVC radio. Unfortunately I can't find the description of the coloured cable connections anywhere. Can someone help me which cable color is for which purpose on my GMC Sierra 2013. Thank you for your help Elias
  17. Hi I’m new here, and I was just wondering if you can swap the radio from a 2017 Silverado with Apple CarPlay to my 2015 Sierra that doesn’t have Apple CarPlay? Would CarPlay work or no?
  18. I having issues using usb drives. I purchased the first shipment to the dealers. Had issues with the display between the gauges, locking up and turned blank. After the software updates my usb drive does not work anymore. I was using a 32 gig original after the first update to then the display stopped blanking out but the usb stopped reading in either port. The dealers showed me a tech bulitin that stated not all usb will not work, but could not tell me what would. I went down to a 1 gig and it worked until the last update now nothing’s works. Any ideas
  19. I have a 2004 Silverado 4x4 with the Bose system. I just put a brand new aftermarket head unit in it and still no sound so I bought a used amp off eBay, installed it and still nothing. Fuses are all good and all connections are as they should be I’ve read a lot saying it could be the speakers. If one speaker blows could it shut down the whole system? I’m at a lose and nothing I have read has been specific enough to my problem nor has anything given me a confirmed fix Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you
  20. By: Zane Merva & Matt Blouin GM-Trucks.com Staff Copyright 2015 Parts & Tools Needed One (1) 11mm fine thread bolt with nut One foot of 12-gauge wire Two (2) crimpable eye fittings Shrink wrap Zip ties Socket Set Pliers Wire stripper/Cutters Estimated price: $12.00 Time to complete: 30 minutes What is It? The relocation of the antenna from stock placement to under the hood for a cleaner look. Skill Level Beginner Warnings and Precautions This relocation will reduce your ability to pick up AM/FM signals. We performed this modification for aesthetic purposes only. OnStar and SirusXM reception will not be affected. Performed On 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab SLT Step One The first step in any project is to prepare your work space. Gather the required tools and safety equipment. Park your vehicle in a place where you have adequate light and you won't have to move it for the duration of the project. Step Two Unscrew and remove the antenna with a small wrench or pliers. Use a rag or paper towel to protect the antenna and prevent scratching the paint in case you want to return it to stock in the future. Step Three Carefully remove plastic trim panel that covers antenna stud. You can pull this piece off with your hands but don’t use too much force or you risk breaking it. Step Four Cut a section of 12-gauge wire approximately one foot in length. Strip about a quarter of an inch off each end. Place two sections of shrink wrap on the wire then crimp the eye-terminal onto the ends of the wire. Heat the shrink wrap to ensure proper seal. Step Five Place the eye-terminal on the 11mm bolt and thread it into the open end of the antenna and tighten down with socket wrench and hold antenna in position with pliers, again being careful not to scratch paint off. Step Six Place antenna under hood in desired location. We chose to relocate under the fender pinch rail next to the battery and intake. Step Seven Route wire up to antenna post being careful to avoid areas where it may pinch. Place the eye-terminal over the post and tighten down with the 11mm bolt. Step Eight Secure antenna with zip ties making sure it is tight to mounting point so it will not move around under rough conditions. Step Nine Place plastic trim panel back over antenna area. Optionally, cover hole with rubber plug, cap, or tape. We've got various sized plugs on order and will update this article if we can find a good fit to cover the left over hole. Conclusion This is an easy and cheap modification to clean up the exterior look of your pickup. Our 2011 Sierra looks way more modern without the ugly mast poking out of the hood. The downside to relocating our antenna is greatly reduced reception. That said, we live in a rural area where reception wasn't great to begin with. Stronger signals in urban areas still work but range you can travel from the station will be limited. Since we rarely use the radio and almost always stream music, this isn't an issue for us.
  21. Finally finished my stereo setup. SoundMan iPad Dash Kit, AudioQuest DragonFly DAC, AudioControl Overdrive Plus, JL Audio HD900/5, JL Audio 8W3v3-4, Focal K2 Power 6.5, 33 Sq Ft of SoundSkins Dampening, SMD OM-1 Monitors on highs and lows.
  22. Hi Everyone, I could have sworn I already posted this, but I can't find it anywhere. My 2015 GMC Sierra All Terrain SLT 1500 truck's media center seems is glitchy, it's either that or I have a haunted truck. I'll be driving and my radio display and my odometer display will randomly start selecting items and cycling through the menu, it will randomly change stations, and one time it even selected voice command, all without any input. Anyway, I've experienced this issue before and I took it to the dealer and while they told me they had never heard or seen the issue before they suggested that they would perform a software / firmware update on my infotainment / intellilink system to see if that would fix the issue and it worked.... for a few months, now it's back. I was wondering if anyone here has experienced the same thing and if they were able to find a permanent fix for it? It is absolutely annoying and very distracting. I have searched this forum and I haven't seen a post from a member that has the same thing that I have experienced. Any help would be appreciated, I'd like to have a permanent fix for this once and for all. I've include a video of what's going on.
  23. I'm looking for a radio for my 1990 GMC S15 pickup. Salvage guy found one for a '93 vehicle that looks exactly the same. Did GMC use the same radio in '93 as '90? Thanks, Rick
  24. Will the MyLink 7” (I think) from a 2017 Silverado double cab fit in a 2014 Malibu LT (also with a 7” MyLink just very old version)???
  25. If anybody figures out if the radio antenna on the new fugly HDs screws onto the K2 base (and receives signal) let me know. THANKS
