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?

You have to change the sound eq in the settings menu. The sound button on the Home Screen is for temporary tuning. 

I’m having the same problem with my Silverado. I’ll have to try that. I wonder when that changed?

In my 2019 camaro I always used the sound settings on the Home Screen and they never changed.

I have the same problem with my equalizer settings. The phone volume, voice volume, and ringer volume also drop to no volume. Can not even hear phone ring. Service manager said “known problem” and will check for an update. I called again today for an update.

New 2021 Silverado 1500 Z71 having the same issues. Has been to the dealer 2 times already. Picked it up today and the advisor went out there to verify. I stuck the key in and turned it over and settings were where they set them. I returned later to take truck home stuck key in started it up and rechecked and it was all back to 0 settings. There has to be a fix. I have saved settings in both areas.

I have the same issue with my 2021 Silverado. My EQ settings go back to 0 and my radio volume is all the way down every time I start the vehicle. It will remember the setting if I turn the vehicle off then turn it right back on, but if I wait 10 minutes it resets to 0.

My dealer has no idea on how to fix. They had it all day and went back and forth to check it and as soon as I started it up it zeroed out. If you find a dealer that has a clue please post.

Have had my 2021 Elevation for about 4 days.  I just started noticing that my EQ settings don’t save. Also the same problems as some of the others - the volumes of the phone and the radio always go to the very bottom as well. I reset the radio. Reset the EQ settings. Will see if there’s any change tomorrow. No known fix is troubling yo me.

2021 Silverado with the same issue! Sometimes the settings will hold all day, but the next morning sound settings are back to default. EQ and Fade. I found this topic by searching my issue. Hopefully there is an update that fixes it soon.

A1dover - I did the hard reset option on the radio. Readjusted the EQ settings and turned the truck off. Went back out this morning and went to work and everything was fine upon start up:.. we’ll see if it sticks.

Go to settings and do a reset of the radio.

Mine was doing same thing, another did this and it worked for him.

I did mine last Friday and it's held the settings since.

There are 2 other posts in regards to this issue.

I had my vehicle at the dealer today and mentioned it and they looked it up. Said there is no known fix yet but the engineers are aware and currently working on an fix. I did a factory reset today though as I had a phone connected on bluetooth before that I couldn’t remove from the Home Screen.

I did the factory reset two days ago. Has kept settings so far. This is the longest the settings have been kept. Will keep you all posted.

      I have a 2004 GMC Sierra 4.3 and lately it's been like losing power when I'm driving down the road it acts as if it stalls and I pump the gas pedal and it turns back on or regains power. I have replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, speed sensor, mass airflow sensor, spark plugs and also cleaned the throttle body. Do y'all  have any idea what could be causing my truck to be acting like that?

      Thanks for the add. Greetings All!! 👋
      Going to start my membership, by asking what I hope is an easy question.
      On an online site, they have a deal on a power retractable tonneau cover that I really like, (like same price as non-powered), but I also just installed a Weather Guard tool box. 
      My hope/want is that I can put the retractable canister in back of the toolbox, (tailgate side) and then mount my onboard air tank under it, with the compressor in the toolbox.
      Finally my question is; will the electric cover stop at my tailgate automatically? I understand I have to cut the rails to accept the canister in the different location, but the cover stopping in the correct stop has me guessing what other mods I’ll have to do.
      please help ASAP, as I do not know how long this deals gonna last. Thank you!

      I want to come back to the GMC/Chevy family.  For over 20 years, I owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself and LOVED the truck. I too owned a 2003 Chevy 1500...put many miles on it too.
      I am looking at the GMC/Chevy 2500 series diesel trucks.  I will stay within the 2016-2019 year range, with about $35k plus'ish budget.  I might look at the 2021 trucks, only due to many deals/rebates etc. 
      What suggestions or tips are out there for these trucks?  What should I watch out for and/or look at getting? 
      So, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with  Chrysler/Fiat (FCA).  Short story, they lied about the ecodiesel, and after forced recall ECM update, they sucked all performance etc., from the truck.  When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance.
      Thanks, for any suggestions that you will provide.  Gary

      Hello everyone. My first time here. I have a 2021 Sierra AT4 with the 6.2L. I have started to notice a noise when towing our boat that weighs about 6,000lbs. Several times during the trip to and from the lake I hear a rumbling sound that last like 2-4 sec. almost sounds like it can be a jake brake or hitting rumble strips on road. I hit no strips. I can’t recall if it happens on downshift or what. But it does concern me. I drove home from work today with our towing and put it in tow haul mode. It made the noise 3 times in 45 min drive. Any ideas what I’m dealing with? Would it be a bad clutch issue or is this normal?  I do have the performance GM installed exhaust and performance GM installed air intake. I called dealer today and they said bring it by and they MIGHT have time to get to it next week. I planned to hit the lake this weekend for Labor Day. Thanks.
