Does 2021 Sierra AT4 have rain-sensing wiper?

Recommended Posts

I just purchased 2021 Sierra at4, and I couldn’t find where to turn on the rain-sensing wiper. I live in pacific northwest, so rain-sensing wiper is a very handy to have. I had this feature on my previous cars, I assumed it should be standard on this truck at this price range as well. Does anyone know how to activate it? Also can I change the air conditioning temperature unit to centigrade without changing anything else? Like right know when I changed the unit to metric the speed also change to km/h.

My 20 doesn’t have it and I’m pretty sure the 21s do not. Not sure why. My 2016 Yukon Denali had it.

Unless a Denali has it ( I don’t know I have never looked at them), GM trucks don’t have rain sensing wipers. They did in 2008 (I had  it then and disconnected it as it never worked ) and have not since as far as I know. 
settings are all metric or not.

I don't know what GM engineers were thinking, does your passenger side mirror dim at night?

I still cannot understand not including this option, so simple and easy.  Previously had it in older models, so why it was removed no idea ?

Lots of things go out of favor.   My 2021 Sierra Denali Ultimate does not have a cd player, turn signals mirrors are no more.   Rain sensing wipers are Cadillac features.

No, only the driver side.

Because it didn’t work at all. Would never come on when getting sleet or slight rain. I had to turn my wipers off and on every 30 seconds myself as they wouldn’t come on themselves. I found a way to disconnect the feature otherwise I was literally going to trade the truck off I was so pissed off.

I unplugged the sensor they got so bad. I wouldn’t mind having them if they work...

That is unfortunate.  I have had it for years on my other vehicles, German made mind you, and its been fantastic.  I can understand the frustration though if not working at all.  That would get taxing

The new SUVs have them on many trims.

Yes they have taken more out of these trucks then put in them the last decade. Price sure doesn't reflect that habit from gm though.

 

You will most likely see it in the upper end lines with the refresh because it will more then likely knowing gm share many components they use in the suv line currently. Gm is about ten years late with most tech features that you see standard in most other makes it seems.

What's a "cd player"?

Outdated technology.

 

Seriously, I have all my music loaded onto a usb storage drive. Ten days worth and I leave it on shuffle.

      Hi. I bought a new 2021 AT4 March 5. 20 miles on it. Drove home from the dealer (4 miles) and the next time I turned it on, CEL and OnStar diagnostics emails me to take it to the service department. They say they reset MAP sensor and send me on my way. Later that day, same thing happens. I take it back in, they say MAP sensory needs replacing. They had it almost 2 weeks waiting on the part. After they replaced it, everything went fine for about 1200 miles and then I get blinking CEL for about 30 seconds then it stops. Next day, blinking CEL for a minute or so, and then it turns solid. I took it back to the dealer and they say the only code pulled was P0300 misfire. They have no idea what’s causing it, and quite frankly I’m pretty fed up at this point. They’ve had my new truck longer than I have in the month I’ve owned it. Has anyone had something similar happen?

      I have a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali with a park assist problem I’m hoping someone can help me solve. A couple months ago, I started getting a sporadic “park assist blocked” error. This is pretty common as the sensors are covered in snow in the winter. However, I then noticed the sensors began to work sporadically even if they were clear. A month or so after that, the message changed to “service park assist” and the system automatically disables itself. The button on the dash shows the system is off all the time and when I try to turn it back on, the orange light flashes for two seconds but then disables itself again. I’ve checked the fuse and unplugged the battery but have not been able to get it to reset. Does this seem like a sensor issue or a control module? Any ideas for next steps? Unfortunately since the system is disabled all the time I can’t check to see if one sensor is malfunctioning as I’ve read about on other forums.
       
      Update: when I started my truck once this week it randomly worked for 10 seconds then disabled itself again and hasn’t worked since.

      I know there are a few different forums on this topic, but they seem to have gone dead. The steering in my truck clicks and clunks especially at low speeds, and the truck wanders on the highway. I am constantly holding the wheel to the left or right to go straight. I have had the intermediate shaft replaced per the service bulletin. After it was replaced some of the noises were reduced, but not eliminated and the truck will still not track straight especially at highway speeds. It almost feels like a bad tie rod end or ball joint, but the dealership said everything is nice and tight, and I checked just for my sanity. I also added a steering stabilizer in hopes this would help. Is anyone else having these issues, and have you been able to get them fixed?

      I just purchased a 2021 GMC Sierra truck. I have set the channels which are staying set but the EQ settings keep going back to default settings when I get in and restart the truck back up.
      Any suggestions?
