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.
Looked and did not find but I am looking to install bed lights and fog lights(on headache rack) on my 2017 Silverado kicker is I would like to attach to existing cargo switch I know that I will have to increase fuse in actual box and run inline fuse for fog lights just wandering if there any warnings and/or suggestions not in any hurry so please let me know what you know thank you
I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with the 6 speed transmission. The transmission seems very sloppy to me and almost every time I am coming to a stop, the transmission will clunk while shifting down. The truck has around 80,000 miles on it and did have some front end damage to it but i don’t see why that would have anything to do with the transmission. Has anyone experienced this and/or have a fix?
Sorry guys, long post.
Haven't been around much lately, with engineering new equipment for mostly garment manufacturers, travelling all over, working 18 hour days.
Now I'm retired. Thank God
For those that don't know me, you are lucky?
I've always modified my cars and trucks. My son and I built many cars and trucks that have been featured vehicles at SEMA. Some sponsored by GM an Avalanche. Some from Ford, An F250 Lifted. Both of those ended up in front pages of magazines.
My son decided to get a real job, and I didn't want to continue by myself, the reason I was doing it so my son could learn mechanical electrical stuff. Since he always also modified cars, vans, mini trucks, etc.
And wanted to learn from the biggest hacker in the world.
This is my current truck and more likely my last, so I'm enjoying to the fullest.
Her it goes..
It' a 2017 LT Graphite.
Mesh grille black powder coating by Grillcraft
2" front lift to level it. (for those complaining about the pogo stick rear end when going through bumps or whoops, this will fix it.)
Homelink from Mito (programable garage door opener) always on.. I hope no one breaks into my truck and gets in the garage and tries to rob old rusted bicyles, dog food, cat food, I forgot my 2002 Corvette Z06 with 30,000 miles. And my Carbonfiber Trek. ls forgot my pitbull that lives in the garage when we are not home.
