  1. 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.?
  2. I have a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 with 3.0 diesel, Sometimes when I shut the truck off and then get back and start it up,, the radio says the satellite is lost, trying to reconnect, but it won't until I shut the motor off and get out of the truck or at least wait at least 2 minutes or more with the motor and radio off,, then restart and the radio works fine,, this only happens with xm,, fm and am work fine,, I have contacted my dealer and they say it must be xm,,, contacted xm,, they say it must them the radio, It doesn't do this all the time,, just once in a while,,, no matter how long I drive with it saying it is trying to reconnect, it never does,, wondering, Am I the only one having this problem? Not sure who to talk to next,,, any ideas? Thanks
  3. Ok so I want to put a post together about the onstar, XM, sharkfin, and whatever else antenna we have on the K2xx platform. I know there have been water leaks plaguing all years from 14-18. All the posts here I have seen, don’t really have any info or “the dealer fixed it”. A lot of people have commented that there is a break in the seal in the rear of the antenna. Please understand that is not a water seal for water intrusion into the cabin. That is only a rubber trim from the plastics of the antenna to the metal roof skin. There is a foam seal that goes around the wires and the mount that does all of the sealing of the elements. When the foam seal deteriorates is when the water issues start. I will explain with pics a little further down in the post. So I have a 14 Denali, vehicle was Daily driven, until 2 months ago, has 90,xxx miles on it, sat out side during the day, and garage kept at night. I have never had any water issues from the antenna (or the 3rd brake light for that matter) Here you can see the square seal around the home in the roof was still sealing with no issues One of the reasons this post happened was because I found a color matched shark fin brand new for VERY cheap. And my Denali has the black plastic fin from the factory.
  4. I'm new to the site, hopefully you guys can help me. I have a 2015 Silverado Crew Cab and I have been having trouble with my XM radio. About a month ago I started to have issues with my XM not working, it would say "XM loading", i could turn the truck off and back on, change channel, wouldn't matter. It would always start working after 5 to 10 minutes, this went on for a week maybe where occasionally it would do that. Then i was leaving work and my truck wouldn't start, battery was totally dead. So i got a jump start, XM was working and i went to the dealer and got the battery replaced. XM worked for a few days, maybe a week and then it started the occasional "XM loading" again. It got progressively worse to the point where it almost never worked over the next week or two. After researching the web i was pretty convinced i needed a new antenna, i had that done yesterday and that did not solve the problem. I also read online that you can reset the XM module by disconnecting the battery and touching the pos and neg leads together while disconnected from teh battery, that somehow this resets the module. I did this yesterday and it blew away my presets and time/date set on the radio but XM is still not working. I spoke with someone from XM and they are saying the module needs to be replaced. Has anyone seen this before? It seem there is a strong correlation on the internet between a dead battery and XM issues. Is there a different re-set on the XM module? Do i just pay the dealer and get it done? Other ideas????
  5. 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?
  6. I am looking for where I can plug in an external magnetic XM antenna. I have a 2017 GMC Denali HD with the 8 inch Intellilink system. I have a truck camper and it's cabover overhang blocks the Shark Fin antenna preventing me from receiving XM. I had a 2003 Sierra 3500 and the XM antenna was behind the glove box, is it the same with my 2017?
  7. I have a new 2016 Silverado LTZ 1500 The satellite radio is constantly cutting out, regardless of station. I've have sirius/XM in my last 4 cars and the only place they would drop out would be under bridges or in tunnels. I've read a few posts on HD radio having poor reception but not XM. Anyone else having this issue, any suggested fixes? Since the first couple oil changes are free, I'll ask them to look at it when I have it in the dealer, however past experience tells me they'll find it 'working properly' or 'could not duplicate'.
  8. DISCLAIMER: This is a repost of the post I just submitted in the Technology Sub-Forum. I wasn't sure which to post to, so I submitted to both. MODS: Please feel free to delete/move either one. Greetings everyone, First off, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I'm what you would call a "tinkerer", "hacker", "maker", or "enthusiast". I'm also recently returned to the GM/Chevy Stock after taking a 12+ year detour into the world of AMC (Jeeps), and Volkswagen. I'm a father of three, and I work in the Industrial Automation Industry (I teach it). In my spare time I build or "fix" things. After repairing my 2011 Golf TDI for the "nTH" time in a year (only 60K on it and had to spend close to $8K worth in repairs, in one year, due to poor mechanical designs (A/C Failed three times (compressors and RCV, 30K, 45K, 62K), plastic radiator mount broke (killing A/C lines), DPF failed twice (32K, 58k), EGR system failed, Electrical + Window Regulators failed at 30K, I had enough of "German Engineering". I was brought into this world riding in a GM (Olds), grew up with Chevy for my entire childhood, but at 18 I bought my "first" car, a 1985 Jeep Wagoneer. I loved that Jeep, but I drove my grandfather's 1996 Chevy Cheyenne every time the Jeep was down for maintenance (I even learned to drive stick in it.) In the last 12 years I've owned 18 Vehicles (+/- 2), but just recently purchased my first GM in all that time. A 2009 Chevy Suburban LTZ (fully loaded). And I gotta say, I feel like Jake "Joliet" Blues (Blues Brothers) when he "got the message" during the Sermon w/ James Brown. I have never loved a truck so much, at least as an adult. Even with all it's problems. I bought it used, 2 owners, 138K. In the first week and a half I put 1500 miles on it just to "get a feel" for it. Big surprise, the dealer lied/hid a bunch of problems, (intermittent start, faulty air suspension sensors, faulty A/C Blender Flaps, and a few other issues that did not present during the test drive, but showed up less than 24 hours after leaving the lot). Even with all the issues, they still don't overshadow the benefits of this truck. I truly am smitten. This brings us to the topic at hand. Like I said earlier, I like to "fix" things, and the very first thing I found wrong with the truck (besides the mechanical problems), was the input/output opitons of the UQA (Denso DW468100-6601) and lack of Bluetooth + A2DP in the On* VCIM. Also, the Rear Seat Entertainment + Rear Audio Controls only allowed for RCA/Composite Video inputs with no Steering wheel controls, keep rubbing me the wrong way. I understand that this vehicle is 2009, and A2DP was not common in vehicles until 2010/2011, as well as the whole "Connected Car" Infotainment sectors were still pretty niche markets. It doesn't change the fact that in the last few cars I've had, they all had A2DP capability, which I became addicted to. I hate wires in the cab, and I hate distractions while driving. So I sought out a way to fix that. Much to the disapproval of my wife, in the first week I had the head unit torn apart down to the last PCB, the center console was in the garage, and for the last 2 weeks we've been having to commute 300 miles a week with no music. That all changed today. The truck is full reassembled (for now), and it's pretty much back to stock. The only permanent change so far is replacing the rear 12v Aux Output to a dual 5V USB port for the kids' iPods. My workbench however is littered with prototype RGB/TTL + ARM CoMs, deadbugged TI VD231 Transceivers, ESP8266s and an Old 3G T-Mobile USB Dongle.... Eventually, it's all going to be built in to one PCB. Over the past two weeks I've managed to rig up a system that allowed me to stream audio (Pandora) and Video, as well as have steering wheel controls of the Audio, all using the stock head unit and wiring harness. Here comes the feeler. Would anyone be interested in a kit that allowed all of the above in almost any 2006+ GM vehicle? I did some rough cost analysis, and to hit good Benefit-Cost Ratio, I would have to sell the units for about $100 +/- $10 + S&H. That's at a low quantity of 50 units, and about a 45 day lead time once orders are placed. I'm almost done with the CAD work on the PCB, and I have enough parts on hand to build 3 "complete" prototypes. I'll post a video soon, once I get back from a trip this coming weekend. I did a quick search of similar products on the market but wasn't really able to find one that did everything I can do, but if anyone knows of something that can do the same thing, please let me know. I don't want to duplicate efforts or hurt another potential entrepreneur. I basically just wanted to say hello, and pop the question while I had some free time (and was riding the excitement of my own personal breakthrough). Oh, and one last thing. Once the items are finalized/produced, I am going to release the entire source code, schematics, and build-instructions as open source hardware. Either GPLv2 or BSD. This way, anyone else who wants to build their own, or improve on my design, can. I'm only keeping it semi-secret at the moment to protect a potential marketability avenue. Anyone who is in my field could probably build the same thing just going off the current description and a basic understanding of automotive communication protocols. Thank you, and have a great day.
  9. New to the forum. Just purchased a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Classic Duramax diesel. I've decided to install an OEM XM satellite receiver and radio but I am having difficulty finding accurate information regarding the wiring pinouts on the XM receiver, the C2 connector on the radio and the C9 connector on the MBEC. I've been able to get the XM antenna and antenna cable to the XM receiver and the wiring harness from the XM receiver to the C2 connector on the radio and then on to the C9 connector on the MBEC off of a wrecked 2003 Silverado. Before I get the high dollar pieces (XM reciever and radio) I want to make sure that I have the correct pinouts for the 3 connectors in question. The wrecked truck was a gasser and I'm not sure if the C9 connector on the MBEC has the same pin outs or not. There are only 3 wires on the MBEC C9 connector. Red wire at location B, Orange wire at location E and Blk/Wht wire at location M. Continuity checks reveal the following: MBEC C9 (pos. B) Red goes to pin 7 (Green) on the XM Connector. MBEC C9 (pos. E) Orange goes to pin 16 (Orange) on the XM Receiver connector. MBEC C9 (pos. M) Blk/Wht goes to pin 9 (Blk/Wht) on the XM Connector. Also, anyone have a part number for an OEM XM radio that fits this truck? Any help for this newby would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

  11. I want to get my shark fin painted to match the body color of the truck. Does anyone have a write up on how to remove/replace this? Thanks
  12. So I almost exclusively listen to XM radio when in my truck. Lately I have been noticing a slight "clip" in the music when listening to the radio. It's pretty annoying. At first I thought it was a speaker going bad, but It only does it on XM radio. Even more specifically, I can only here it on one channel of XM, which happens to be my favorite channel. XM 37 Octane. There isn't any interruption in the music, but I distinctly hear like a skipping/clipping sound almost like a short burst of static. it's seems random but every now and then I will these little blips. I can notice it during the middle of a hard guitar riff, or while its a lighter acoustic style riff. Also when the DJ is talking. So all sorts of sound levels......... I have played with the tone settings to try and mitigate it, I think lowering the treble seems to help, but I can still hear it. Anyone else get this? Or am I going crazy????
  13. On my 2014 Sierra when i tag a song or whatever its called, my sirius tells me it will copy the song to an iPod when attached. however, my iPod is attached and i have tried attaching my Galaxy s4 phone as well, and no songs will copy to the devices. what am i doing wrong?
