  1. So i had a dead battery the other day i went to take out the battery and get it charged because they told me it was still good, so when i put the battery back on the truck and went to start it the screen would stay black . I have tried disconnecting the battery and connecting it back (negative first then positive) , i have tried taking the fuse in and out for the radio, and i have tried moving the connections under the cabin filter. Please help thank you
  2. I have a 2015 Colorado Z71. While driving the radio will go to the browse menu and sometimes freeze there. None of the touch screen functions will work. This happens with both radio and pandora. Took it to dealership they did some update to software, but issue continues. Anyone had had this issue also? If so what’s solution? thank you
  3. I installed a new JVC radio in my truck but both the driver and passenger speaker are not making any sounds. I suspect it's the wire harness not aligning with factory harness. Where can I find the right wiring diagram to rewiring the aftermarket wiring harness?
  4. Did a quick search and nothing came up, so wanted to see how many others are having issues with reception of satellite radio. I have a 2018 Denali 2500. Purchased in November, and been back to the dealer twice for issues with satellite radio reception. Radio cuts in and out regularly. I can drive under a power line and briefly lose reception. Other times, am on a road with nothing but open field around me and it will cut out. Always comes back within a second or two, just annoying to lose reception. Wifes Mazda has satellite radio as well and only loses reception under bridges. Never loses in places mine does. Anyone else have issues with theirs? If so, was it ever fixed? Seriously considering cancelling XM and just using BT from my phone at this point.
  5. We've been waiting a long time to announce this: we have finally started receiving the Linkswell GEN3 "T-Style" 12.1" tablet replacement radio for GM trucks (part number TS-GMPU12-1RR1)! Having seen a prototype version of this unit at the SEMA show last November, it's amazing to finally see the finished production piece: Read more about the unit: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/gen-iii-t-style-radio-for-gm-trucks/ To see the actual production unit and accessories, visit this gallery: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17lCS_GjFhwSnGHSWsvsu47Pa6Qm7joML To see screenshots of the user interface, visit this gallery:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ziyLjKHkYZH848alonmX7yfnmGWr235S Here's the installation video in a 2019 Silverado 3500HD Z-71: The unit will replace the factory 4" (RPO code IO3 or IO4), 7" (IOB) or 8" (IO5 or IO6) radio in 2014-18 Silverado/Sierra 1500 and 2015-19 Silverado/Sierra 2500 & 3500 with either non-amplified or amplified (BOSE) sound systems, and ships with all harnesses and adapters that will be required for the installation in the box. The only exception is for trucks that have the factory BOSE systems - these will require an additional adapter that is kind of expensive (suggested retail is crazy, but we are selling them for our cost to help out guys with BOSE trucks). FYI: Alpine's adapter is actually made by Linkswell. Speaking of the Alpine radio, we carry that as well, but is is almost double the cost: https://www.adcmobile.com/product/alpine-restyle-gm-truck-mechless-receiver-i209-gm/ The GEN3 unit mounts in the dashboard exactly like the factory radio: it uses the original mounting points and screws to hold in the unit, and the outboard trim pieces clip in like factory. Although it moves the factory HVAC controls to the radio (on the hard buttons on the trim pieces as well as on-screen), it maintains the factory switches that are located at the bottom of the radio location under the factory HVAC controls. The unit itself is beautiful, with a dark grey bezel around the 12" vertical screen, with very high-quality control buttons for HVAC functions on both sides of the screen and two large silver knobs for on/off-volume and tuning and control functions. It has mounting bosses that line up to the factory radio mounting points and it ships with silver side wing panels that have an OEM-level finish, that can also be painted if you want to match a different color. The side panels also accept the factory switches (if any) that are currently mounted there. It has an improved UI that includes colored icons to more closely match the factory look and in contrast to the GEN2 units that had Android 4.4.4, it now has an Android 7.1 operating system. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of total internal memory. These cannot be upgraded, but external memory is virtually unlimited, as you can hook up external USB sticks or hard drives. They updated the UI slightly to include colored icons that are similar to the factory. Although the unit is an Android tablet, the user interface is actually an overlay that cannot be changed both on the "home" screen and the menu bar, so you will not be able to "dock" your favorite apps or features into the either location. This is a little frustrating, as it forces you to go into the app list in order to launch your apps, but it does guarantee that the unit looks very clean and very factory at all times. Here are a few shots of the actual production hardware showing the color, texture and finish of the radio, the control buttons and trim: Radio unit (note it has the screen protector film on it): Side trim: Left side buttons: Right side buttons: The unit has full wifi capability, so it allows you to connect to your vehicle's hotspot or a hotspot on your phone in order to run just about any app you can download from the Google Play Store. It ships with Google Maps built-in, and can run run WAZE or any other app you choose. It can also be purchased with iGo Next-Gen navigation (or upgraded to it at a later time) for navigation that does not require wifi to operate. The iGo navi upgrade runs $100. In addition, since it is an Android tablet and can be used as such, those of you that use your trucks for work can run any Android app that you would normally run to conduct your business, like Quickbooks, calendar apps, messaging apps, proprietary business apps, etc., giving you the ability to make your truck your office, and move the functions that you would normally have to do on your phone, tablet or laptop over to the radio that is always-on and doesn't require anything but a hotspot to function. I know when I was working on the road doing installs, I would have killed to have a deck like this that would have allowed me to review my schedule and enter data without having to bring up anything else on my phone or laptop :- ) It supports Bluetooth 4.0 protocol for hands-free and A2DP music streaming (requires the supplied external mic for Bluetooth hands-free), and supports factory OnStar, steering wheel controls, HVAC controls, vehicle settings and USB ports. It DOES NOT retain the factory CD player or satellite tuner. Although it doesn't retain factory XM radio, the SiriusXM app can be installed on the unit, allowing access to 100+ additional channels of satellite programming than the in-car tuner for $7.99/mo.: https://www.siriusxm.com/xtrachannels, and of course all apps like Pandora, Spotify and iHeart Radio can be used as well. Retaining factory XM was definitely on my own "must have" list of features, but some design allowances (see below) made this MUCH more difficult to integrate easily. The system has a total of three USB inputs (the factory USB and two additional inputs), and it will allow USB audio and video content to be played (yes, even while moving, but we don't want you to do that : -). It can also support gaming apps on the tablet and even run old school games using some of the common emulators and downloadable ROMS that are available, with USB controllers to give you a more X-Box or PS2/3/4 experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrOxIscDLdU. It also ships with a USB dongle that adds Apple Car Play and Android Auto to the unit, giving you the ability to have Car Play/Android Auto without having to upgrade the factory hardware (and still be stuck with the factory radio). Last time we checked, just doing the Car Play upgrade to an existing factory radio cost $1000, https://www.infotainment.com/products/2014-2015-chevrolet-silverado-mylink-apple-carplay-and-android-auto-upgrade so when you consider that you get all of the other features as well, the T-Style radio option starts looking pretty attractive! Additionally, the adapter has a mode that will allow true display mirroring from an iPhone or Android device (settings would need to be changed, and not all devices will be guaranteed compatible with this mode). Apple Car Play interface: Car Play audio display: There is an optional outboard DVR camera available that can both record your trips onto an SD card ( not included) inserted into the camera, but that also functions as a driving aid to warn of lane departure, etc. This may be something that could be considered very cheap insurance, since having a video record of any accidents or other mayhem that happens on the road in front of you can literally turn out to be a lifesaver! The system has a total of three camera inputs. One of the inputs will display the factory rear camera (the factory rear camera adapter is included in the box) or allow you to add an aftermarket rear camera if your truck did not come with a rear camera. There is a right side camera and a front camera input as well. A right side camera can be added and that input can be triggered by the right turn signal if you wish, or manually through the touchscreen. The front camera input can only be triggered manually through the touchscreen. Keep in mind that just because they are labeled "right" and "front", these camera inputs can be used for any camera you may add (like a wireless camera on a trailer or camper), a camera under the truck if you do rock crawling or off-roading, or even any video device that you just need a display for. Camera interface: The system has one AV input, giving you the ability to connect outboard AV sources such as media players, games, etc., and for the first time on any T-Style radio, a rear AV output! This is pretty huge because it will allow you to set up a full rear entertainment system in the truck using the head unit as a source. This includes the AV input, the radio or any file that can be played on the USB input. I don't know if it will send app audio and video like Netflix to this output, but I will try and find that answer and report back. If you set up a system with headrests or an overhead DVD unit that has outputs, you can send the radio's output to the rear and the rear system's output to the radio, giving you ultimate flexibility for entertainment options! NOTE: THE UNIT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE FACTORY REAR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM. This means that if you have the factory rear entertainment system, it will not function - you would have to replace that system, or add something like headrest monitors in order to have rear entertainment. We will try and determine if there are any workarounds for this limitation... It has a file manager so you can do standard file management operations as you would do on your tablet or laptop, and since it also contains a Chrome internet browser, you can surf the net as you would on any tablet, and download files as well. Downloaded files can be saved to any memory attached to the unit - internal memory or external USB drives. One very important and cool feature is that it will allow you to install .APK files (APPS) from any source, not just the Google Play store! This is important because there are literally dozens of APK mirror websites that have hundreds of thousands of apps available for download that are not necessarily available from the Play store. Of course, if you download anything that is NOT in the Play store, you should always verify the safety of the apps you are installing... The system supports all factory HVAC control layouts, including manual controls, auto controls, etc. It has large control buttons on both sides of the bezel to control common functions. It has HVAC controls built into the interface as well. It controls factory vehicle settings, but I don't have a firm grip on exactly what each one of them does. HVAC Interface: Vehicle options: The "cold boot" time is pretty unimpressive (~45 seconds!), but it has a "fast boot" setting that you can set to 15 minutes, 12 hours, 24 hours or 48 hours that allows the radio to stay in a "sleep mode" for that preset time, making it essentially "instant-on" when you come back to it within that time frame. This feature will draw tiny amounts of power, so it's advisable to make sure you have a healthy battery in the truck if you set this for extremely long intervals. The radio will prioritize the backup camera, so if you do start driving after a "cold boot", the backup camera will operate pretty much immediately. Here's a little side note on the design priorities that have been shared with me (and my own impressions of the company and their previous products): When they first suggested they were considering the unit for GM trucks, I was extremely excited to see what they could come up with, because this is the same company that had been making the GM multi-camera modules we have been selling for almost 5 years under various manufacturer names, and who we knew understood and were comfortable with the factory systems in these trucks. I had literally dozens of suggestions for them, and shared what I felt were the priorities they should hit if they wanted this unit to be successful. My original request was to be able to retain as much as possible of the factory MyLink system and all factory options. They said that although they had been very comfortable with the camera interfaces, those were a pretty finite challenge that mainly involved "hijacking" the video and touchscreen streams and substituting their own functions, while removing the factory head unit and retaining all of the factory features for every version of factory audio system in these trucks took the engineering challenges to a completely new level! For instance, since GM never shares their data on the MyLink system with aftermarket manufacturers, all of the data that needs to be supported in this kind of swap needs to be sleuthed out after the vehicle is delivered, by trial and error, using production vehicles equipped with all of the various systems. This makes producing a single unit to replace all possible combinations of factory systems (IO3, IO4, IO5, IO6 and IOB, along with all options in each level) a literal nightmare. They investigated just doing a replacement screen that retained all of the factory HMI and radio tuners, MyLink, etc., but this has proven to be a HUGE undertaking. While it is still being developed, that type of product will take immense fine-tuning to make it viable since potential problems can be caused with a factory update, negating any integration they have done and causing issues that would make the customer want to rip it out of the dash! Like Alpine has already done with their replacement radio (at $2000, almost twice as expensive as well), Linkswell decided to just do a complete replacement radio that bypasses most of the factory modules and so does not rely so heavily on interpreting the factory data stream. This allows the system to be much less dependent on factory data, and lets the radio system live pretty much independently of any updates done to the truck, making the owner's experience a whole lot less troublesome in the future. We have received information from a supplier tied to another manufacturer of similar radios (Phoenix Android) that has gone down the path of retaining the factory modules saying that they are having ongoing issues with their CANBUS integration and are considering pulling the product from the market due to these problems. Of course, they won't mention this when trying to sell you a radio - keep in mind that not all manufacturers are created equal! There are other units out there that are similar (like the Phoenix), and we get asked every day why the Linkswell units are more expensive if they are the same unit. Simple answer - they are not the same unit! Although they are similar in layout, the underlying hardware and most importantly, the programming and functionality is NOT AT ALL the same - if you watch some of their demo videos, it's very obvious that they did not really think through their control layout, as they have AT LEAST three different HVAC control methods, and because they have attempted to retain the factory MyLink functions (see my comments regarding this above), it's also very obvious that it slows down the unit considerably. Another HUGE difference is the physical layout of the radio and how it mounts in the truck - the Phoenix radio comes with the radio and the side trim all as one piece, which has a very distinctive disadvantage: you cannot actually screw it into the dashboard! It can only be mounted with clips because the side trim panels are not removable, which makes it EXTREMELY easy to steal, since the thief doesn't even need any tools! The Linkswell unit is designed to mount basically the same as the factory unit, with the factory screws, and the trim panels clip in like factory. In conclusion, the people at Linkswell know that we are never shy about sharing our impressions of their product :- ), and I'm happy to say that they listen to us very closely when it comes to suggesting updates and tweaks. They have literally written new firmware for us overnight when we have identified issues that needed to be corrected, and our fixes have been integrated into the ongoing firmware updates that their F**d and RAM units have received. In other words, it's really refreshing to have a company listen to us when we tell them what's wrong with their products and they fix them based on our input! We will most definitely be giving the same type of feedback on these radios if and when we see something that needs to be fixed or changed. We have already sold a couple hundred of the Linkswell "GEN2" F**d F-Series and RAM radios, and have had a largely trouble-free experience. As I mentioned above, there have been a couple hiccups that have been addressed in firmware updates, but the hardware has been very solid. For the most part, guys are very satisfied with them, provided they are comfortable with losing factory features that the replacement radio doesn't support (mainly the CD player and satellite radio). The overwhelming majority of issues we have dealt with have been install-related, and even though we have some pretty in-depth videos and install photos & guides, some guys have had install & setup problems, and other issues that have forced reloading or updating the firmware to fix. Some issues stem from users changing settings that are not supposed to be touched, and some just due to not really really understanding what they have gotten themselves into. Although you don't need to be a professional installer to install these types of radios, it does require that you are able to read instructions, watch videos and have some knowledge of mechanical and electrical concepts. We very much want the installation to be as "pain-free" as possible, and we very much want to help you with the install, so if this is something that you feel you would want to tackle yourself, it is highly suggested that you call us in advance so we can pass along some of our "installer tips" to help insure things go well.

  6. See a lot of questions asked about this and not a lot of set info on the upgrade. Hope this helps even anyone trying to set it up. **READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH ALL VIDEOS PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING PURCHASING OR INSTALLATION** Apple CarPlay / Android Auto functionality is not supported in any 2014-2015 (Many 2016) Silverado/Sierra’s. This is due to neither application being available from Google or Apple when these vehicles being built, therefore not an available option during these model years. The following instructions are designed to simplify the process as much as possible. Three things are required for this upgrade (ONE) Radio Module, (ONE) HMI Module, and (ONE) USB Hub 2016+. Search around for the modules, they are available for purchase from many different locations. EBay, totaled vehicles, junkyards, or other various websites to find them. AGAIN, if the part numbers are not listed below DO NOT purchase them. It is highly encouraged to not try and cut corners with purchasing part numbers of modules not listed as they cannot be flashed to work properly. **DISCONNECT THE BATTERY PRIOR TO INSTALLING FRESHLY UPDATED MODULES** TOOLS REQUIRED: Trim Removal tool 10 mm Socket 7 mm Socket PARTS REQUIRED USB HUB P/N 13519224 (BLACK) P/N 13509943 (WHITE) HMI Module USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH NAVIGATION. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N. 84006103 84048396 84096817 84156701 81431943 84296482 USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITHOUT NAVIGATION. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N. 84096815 84156699 84131941 84296480 84004948 84048398 84131941 84296480 RADIO MODULE USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH BOSE. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N. 84062073 84293226 13506371 23402903 USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITHOUT BOSE. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N. 13506387 23402909 84062056 84293243 Once acquiring the parts you can now send them to be flashed. These modules will be flashed to your VIN and will then be plug and play. Copy the link and follow the prompts. http://www.whiteautoandmedia.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=98&category_id=44&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=54 If you have followed all the directions up and to this point, select yes for hardware match. You can chose if you would like the maps updated on your NAV if you so choose. You will be emailed your order number from WAMS, this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. You will be required to ship your parts either FedEx or UPS, they will not accept packages from USPS. You will need to write your order number on the box to ensure your order is properly handled. Turn around is approximately one week from shipment to return. ONLY ship your (ONE) Radio Module and (ONE) HMI Module. Maintain your USB Hub. Once you have received your parts from WAMS you can begin installation. Disconnect your battery prior to installation. To install the radio module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2MYuuyqLrs. For the purpose of this install start the video at 1:00. Stop the video at 2:04, the radio module is visible with a green connector on the far left. Simply begin disconnecting all of the connectors plugged into the module, once all are removed you can slide the module out of the dash. It is retained only by the tension of the cables plugged into it. Replace with your new module, you can now continue the video and finish putting the dash back together. Stop the video at 4:10. To install the HMI Module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFe2gwlOsD4. Stop the video at 2:00. The module being described behind the crossbar is what you are replacing. Remove all connectors, the module is retained with a plastic clip on top. Installing the module along with the glove box, is self explanatory. Take note of the plastic tabs on the sides of the USB Hub you are preparing to install. Those tabs can be depressed with a dental pick and gradually removed out of place. Once removed, disconnect the harness and reconnect. Installation is now complete. You can now reconnect your battery and start your vehicle. Initial start up might take a few seconds to initialize, and temperature defaulting to 32 degrees is normal. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay require hardwire connection, so to test functionality it needs to be connected to the newly installed USB hub. MVI Inc (https://www.gm-navigation.com/) offers kits and other customization options if the above is not something you feel comfortable acquiring on your own. Hope this helps, should be pretty cut and dry. There might be other methods, but this was the cheapest I discovered. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
  7. Hello first post. I have a 2015 suburban with horrible FM reception. I have replaced the Radio, HMI and antenna booster. no change. I'm hoping to find out if anyone has had this problem and was able to repair. My next attempt will be to use an aftermarket FM window antenna to replace the OEM in glass antenna. Could there be another module causing maybe the control bezel?
  8. I have a 2014 1500 LTZ and was looking to upgrade to something with Apple car play. I took it to a local shop this week and got my truck back yesterday and I’m disappointed with what they put in, on my drive home unit shut off twice and is laggy. Was a pioneer brand unit. I’m going to be requesting they remove it, Any suggestions what I can swap too? I’d like to retain my factory mic and usb functions as I lost those with the unit they recommended. I was looking at this not sure on quality though. Thanks! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stereo-12-1-Android-Vertical-Screen-Chevrolet-Silverado-2014-2018-Nav-Radio-GPS/173781842298?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180105095858%26meid%3Dbdb1e22d8bb44a738f1309a120affa2d%26pid%3D100904%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D282219624979%26itm%3D173781842298&_trksid=p2509164.c100904.m5276
  9. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Single Cab 4.3L V6. Pulled into the parking lot at work this morning with no issues. Went to back into a parking spot and when I shifted into reverse, EVERYTHING in the cab shut off for about 3 seconds. When it came back on I had an airbag alarm and a stabilitrak alarm. I backed into the spot without issue. As far as I could tell the drive-train was fine. I have the convenience package which is basically the backup camera, Bluetooth, and On-Star. Anyone else come across this issue or anything similar?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. A couple months ago I went out (right when it started to get colder here) to go to the store and my 8" MyLink on my 2014 LT was just dead. Screen did not come on at all (No back light even), radio would not play music, no backup cam, no clock, no Bluetooth, nothing. If I went to the audio section of the information DIC on console it just said audio off. The truck warmed up and then it would come back on and all worked again. It has started happening more frequently and not just when cold now. Recently I've had my battery die after the truck sat without driving for a couple days (it is a brand new battery). I'm guessing the radio issue is somehow draining the battery and caused that. I did check and replaced the fuse, even though the old one looked ok. I'm not sure what controls the screen and audio output to check and what I'd be looking for, can anyone help me so I can do some digging? Also to note, system sounds like turn signals and key dings still work while this is happening, but if I remove the radio fuse all together they do not.
  13. I have a 1999 Silverado with bench seat. I want to mount my cb where I can still use the controls with out having to open my console or take my eyes off the road for more than a few seconds. I really don't want to drill or cut my dash to mount it. Any ideas are appriciated.
  14. 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!
  15. I've got an issue I've been chasing down for a couple days now, whenever I turn off my truck, take the key out of the ignition, open and close the door, the radio and gauge cluster lights don't turn off. The dome light turns off as it should. I've checked for blown fuses, and checked for parasitic voltage across all of them, even checked all my relays and still nothing. I replaced the ignition switch and it's still happening (does the same with the old and the new one), however, when I pull out the ignition switch and pull the connector on it from the BCM everything turns off. I sprayed some lubricant inside the door latch to see if that was causing it but to no avail, still happening. Could it actually be the door latches? Or maybe the ignition lock cylinder? Body Control Module? Something else? Any help is appreciated!
  16. My factory antenna catches the bottom of my open garage door and drags across a lowered section of the ceiling. The antenna is only about two inches too long. I've looked at replacing with one of those short stubby aftermarket antennas but not crazy about the look and don't want to sacrifice reception. Does anyone know if any other GM vehicle factory antennas, may be slightly shorter and still fit my truck?
  17. 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.
  18. the audio quit in my 92 gmc sierra.changed to after market same thing radio powers on but no audio.need help.
  19. Hello so I have a 2016 chevy traverse and the other day I was driving listening to the radio and I pushed the talk button on my steering wheel after doing so the radio shut off and the talk button didnt do anything but bring static through the speakers. now the radio wont turn on and everytime I push the talk button it just brings more static. My CD player, mps players and AM/FM channels do not work. Everytime I push the power button for the radio nothing happens if anyone has any ideas before I spend an arm and a leg to get it diagnosed I would greatly appreciate it.
  20. Just today when i switched the radio station by pressing a preset option my “buttons” and info all went away after about 10 secs. When you touch the screen they come back and stay for 10 secs. If I start it and don’t touch any new stations they all stay. Never has done this before. 2018 Yukon XL Denali bought end of May
  21. Hi all, got in my truck one day a few weeks ago and the radio display was malfunctioning. The screen cuts off halfway so you cannot see the station, artist, song title, etc. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, maybe I didn't leave it unhooked long enough but that didn't work. Anybody else seen something like this or know how to fix it? I'll attach a photo. **the picture is upside down, don't know how to fix it, I apologize** Thanks
  22. My 2015 Silverado 2500 radio has stopped working. Seems to not get signal from ignition when to activate. Back up camera works fine. Radio will suddenly turn on sometimes or if CD is pushed in or fuze is pulled and reset. No bluetooth connectivity. Any thoughts....Dealership wants $150 to diagnose and $150 to reprogram.
  23. Has anyone tried this? My truck came with the blue tooth/Apple play capabilities, just would prefer the bigger screen found in the LT and up. Anything hard to swap about? Also looking to swap the black plastic trim around the display for the finished silver plastic trim
  24. I have the bose audio system in my 2018 All Terrain. I have the XM Radio trial and I have my subscription to Spotify. After about 2 month of ownership I've realized that the XM Radio has significant better quality in sound than using apps from my phone by bluetooth, or apple play. I have adjusted some settings within those apps to play the highest quality yet it doesn't translate as well as the XM Radio. Each time I switch between the two. I have to crank up the volume for spotify and crank it back down when on XM. Anyone else experience that? Any resolution?
  25. looking for amp install locations and ideas in my 2015 sierra 2500 cc. not enough room behind the rear seats and cant afford to lose any room in the back!
