Can GM diagnostics read that I tried a burnout with my truck?


Recommended Posts

I have heard that GM can tell of I have been speeding with my truck when they hook up their computer to it. Is that true? That's not really my issue, but somewhat related topic is can they tell i tried a burnout with my new truck? I did one for 5-10 seconds and am just wondering if that information can be read with their diagnostics system?

 

Thanks!

Probably. Traction Control/Stabyltrak will detect tire spin and begin to slip the transmission clutches as well as sensors would read the tranny fluid temperature getting hot. The truck knows it is not moving.

 

Read about “GM Telematics”.

if you were stuck in mud and spun the rear wheels it would be the same thing , they would not know
 
Except they can also see you location time and and hundreds of other variables. Including tire pressure. Us drag racers see that.

So you did a burn out and damaged your truck ? 

 Disabled traction control before burnout ?

I awoke this morning and found my truck peeking in my bedroom window. The phone rang. It was an OnStar operator. She said “You like that, don’t you?”, and hung up. Now it’s WiFi keeps pulling up pictures of convertibles. Will this affect my warranty?

I ripped a good 20-30 long ass burnouts, took my truck on 3 trips to the sand dunes. Tried another burnout a few weeks later. Only one tire lit. Took the truck to the dealer with rubber still stuck in the wheels wells and had the rear end rebuilt free of charge under warranty. I don't think they really care.

Seeing as go OnStar can monitor when and where you brake, and the effort applied to the brakes, I’m sure then can tell that you applied full brakes while goosing the throttle, or broke the tires free. Whether it means anything is a different tangent

      Does anyone know how to add the digital key for the GMC Hummer EV? It says it should be in the app to select but I don't see it there. I followed the manual instructions as well but don't see the option for a digital key. If anyone knows or can help I would appreciate it.

      I have a 2018 Silverado. I replaced the battery last fall and each onstar diagnostic report afterwards warned that my battery was low. I took it to my Chevy dealer and they said the batter is fine. Is this a know issue?

      Hey there I have a
       
      2015 1500 5.3L LTZ Silverado 4WD (midnight edition)
       
      Anyway I was doing highway miles and got a console alert that oil level was low. Stopped at the auto parts store, added one quart, saw level was still low.. so I added a second quart which filled it up. I climbed under the engine in the parking lot, and took a peek at the oil pan. I noticed the gasket was all mushroomed out and there was oil pretty much caked everywhere lower than that seal.
       
      I took it to the dealership to get it repaired and the service manager told me the strangest stories.
       
      He said
      1) the lower oil pan is one time use
      2) the lower oil pan gasket is RTV
      3) the upper oil pan gasket was also leaking
      4) the crimp in the oil cooler line was leaking (didn't realize my engine even had an oil cooler!? Why would a light duty truck have this equipped?)
       
      He quoted $2000 for everything including 10% sales tax.
       
      Does this raise the alarm for anyone else here? I only saw oil from the lower gasket downward. The parts on rock auto are about $70. I think I'll have to do this one myself but would love some thoughts. 
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Does anyone have the files or snapshots of the Computer Data Lines Circuit Schematic for the 2011 Chevrolet Suburban 5.3. Any help would be appreciated, having trouble with UXXX codes...
