Same crap kept happening with my Yukon, GM said normal and along with the transmission acting up, it’s now surrounded by Beemers in a BMW dealership. I’ve never had so many issues on any of my many vehicles until I started buying GM, I’m done with GM.

Is the truck holding up or a new Raptor coming sooner rather than later?

Lol, aside of a little transmission clunks I’m really enjoying my truck. To much put into it to just get rid of it. Right now it’s in the shop with 18k on it doing a preventative transmission flush. I told them it’s the only way to prevent trading it in for the Raptor, they didn’t like hearing that. I’m now realizing that I’m much more into the German Manufacturing then the GM but I need a truck for off-road and hog hunting

Correct but I’m driving a new 2019 loaded out loaner that doesn’t have any clunking at all as a matter of fact it’s very smooth shifting. One negative I noticed immediately is that my truck Lifted with the CST lift druves much smoother than this new 2wd and feels like a boat on handling, yuck! I’m missing my truck already

And that’s why I’ll be done with GM for good as soon as I start having bad transmission issues like I’ve been hearing. so far minor once in a while soft clunks. I’ve also heard Raptor guys having issues with their drivetrains too. I’m thinking getting an older truck for Hog hunting and HomeDepot runs and hop back into the German side.

Guys! This is a TRUCK! I don't get why everyone is so picky on this clunking thing! GM is the same manufacturer which makes Cadillac and smaller Chevy and GMC cars over 100 years, without clunking, the same as Ford. Now both GM and Ford are using the same transmissions. They both know how to make cars and their transmissions. They are not stupid to make durable trucks breaking fast. This clunking thing has been with these trucks in almost all past generations with automatic transmissions, when changed to 6-speed. It's very simple. These trucks have naturally aspirated 8 cylinder engines which oxygen intake depends solely on atmospheric pressure and does not rely on forced induction through a turbocharger or a supercharger. Therefore, they drop the rpm very fast when they come to stop. Also, the flywheel in these engines is very light compare to 4 or 6 cylinder engines. They have the flywheel just to engage the starter. Therefore, there is less inertia being saved in them when the car comes to stop in low speed in very low rpm. On the other side, all truck's inertia is transferring to the transmission from the rear end. During synchronization between the transmission and the engine in very low speeds, specially coming to stop, sometimes such clunking condition happens. It's getting better after couple of thousands miles when the computer learns your driving style, but it will never go away completely. This is my 4th Silverado. None of my past silverados (past 3 generations) had ever had any transmission issue because of clunking. 

By the way, this thread is for backup camera not for transmission clunking. They are other related threads that people are talking about it more in details.

Thanks for your input professor, my 12th plus truck and never have I ever felt or heard any clunking. Escalades, Yukon’s, lots of Fords and even a few garbage Dodge and most of all there’s a reason to why GM is facing an enormous Class Action lawsuit and not because it’s a TRUCK! Btw, the back up camera SUCKS in the 14-18 but really like the backup camera in the loaner 19 as well as the charging pad that actually works on the IPhones, that’s all and IMHO rest is generic.

Clunking trans has little to do with my backup camera on my trailer (maybe my camera doesn’t work because my trans has been perfect?).

 

I am going to push this issue with GM further. A super simple way to prove the truck is malfunctioning... unplug the trailer 7-wire plug and use a jumper with fuse between the 12v and parking terminals. The parking lights come on and the camera works perfectly... plug into truck and it flashes again.  I don’t care why I only care that it is broke and they need to fix it.

The backup camera in my 18 GMC SLT 1500 is expectable during the day but has horrible grainy resolution in the evening, installed really bright led backup lights and did help. Well, at least GM got the camera right in the 19’s, excellent clarity in day or night.

True story. The backup camera on the truck in my 19 is so good it immediately made me realize how terrible the video quality is on the trailer wireless camera... that said I still would like the trailers camera to work as it is nice to have as a way to check behind the trailer while on the road.

Yet you're so pathetic you devote your life to hanging out on a GM truck forum? If you are "done with GM" then GTFO.

The 14-18 trucks were the first trucks to have a standard backup camera. What do you expect? If you buy a phone with the a brand exclusive feature available across the entire product line from cheapest to most expensive, it will almost always have a lower quality than the rest of the competitors that don't offer it standard until years later. Even now, 2019+ Ram 1500's with an HD backup camera are glitchy at best and at worst don't work at all.

It's an issue, and it does need to be fixed. My 2016 didn't have this problem.

 

There isn't even a TSB for the bright at night yet. They have gone backwards IMO

Don’t go hurting yourself there Honda, shouldn’t go attacking people for giving their personal experience on a GM product especially since Ive owned a great number of them and highly doubt you’ve ever spent enough on one like I have to make an educated enough guess to realize that the enormous class action law suit on GM is there for a reason and yet still pumping out same transmissions. My 18 6.2 is in the shop this very moment having preventative flushing and fluid changes done so I can keep it especially after pouring large amounts into personalizing it, so not done with GM yet but when I sure as hell will not be getting a Dodge but when I’ve had enough I’ll post it then I’ll leave you with your mess on wheels.

      I'm having big Infotainment System problems with my 2019 GMC Sierra Crew Cab Short Bed SLT +
      1- I can set the camera view I want to hole in memory for every time I put the vehicle in reverse and it holds so that I can see the back up camera and the front of the vehicle as it's going to swing.
      2- When I try to do this for when I put the car into drive all I can see is the front wheels where they touch the ground.
      If I bring up the camera menu I can select front view  BUT it will not hold this in memory.
      How can I make it so EVERY TIME I place the car in drive it will show the forward view.
      I have a narrow stone wall driveway and need to see the walls.
       
      3- Every time I start the truck the infotainment system comes on differently.
      Sometimes it will go straight to navigation set up, other times the audio page.
      It makes no difference which window I had up when the truck was turned off.
       
      4- Sometimes when I start up the vehicle I get a BLACK screen and I have to turn the truck off and restart several times to get the system to boot.
       
      I could go on and on about multiple problems with the Infotainment System.
      The dealer has updated the software twice already and still no joy.
       
      This is the worst example of automotive technology I've ever owned.
      I have a Genesis and an Acura and both have flawless computer systems.

      So it seems there is very little info out there yet about how people are using the integrated rear camera.  Anyone have experience with it pulling a fifth wheel?  I have a 40' 5th wheel and I wonder how good the factory system is, difficulty installing, etc.  I think I found that the 2019 camera works for the 2020 ( 84580657 ) but not 100% certain.  can't find the 2020 part number reference yet.

      I have a 2014 Sierra 2500. It has the basic XM radio package with the green dot matrix display.  I would like to add a high quality backup camera, as I use this truck on the farm every day and constantly need a camera to assist when hitching trailers.  We have a 2016 Silverado 2500 and it has a wonderful OEM backup camera displayed on a nice big screen.  Is it possible to add an OEM backup camera like this to my 2014?  If not what is my best option for a good backup camera with good resolution and good resistance to shadowing?

      Hello again, everyone.
       
      Back here with another update of yet another unlock that has been discovered for the HMI - Rear Camera in Motion!
       
      This one has been pretty sought after and I'm very excited to be able to offer it to the community here. 
       
      This unlock can be performed on any 2014 - 2018 GM truck that has a rear camera installed. It requires the use of an additional harness which I provide.
       
      This unlock places a "Camera" application on the screen of the HMI which allows the user to view the rear camera for 25 seconds while the vehicle is driving.
       
      This is perfect for checking on your trailer connections while on the road or just viewing any obstacles behind you. 
       
      Please see the video demo below and feel free to send me a PM if you're interested in adding this to your vehicle. Thanks for looking.
