2008 Sierra 1500 Dash Cam Options


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of wiring in my dashcam to my 2008 Sierra 1500 SLT to only be on when the ignition is on. There are no ignition switch fuses in my drivers side fuse box so as I see it I have 2 options :

 

1). Use one of the ignition switch fuses on under hood fuse box. The ones I have found (according to the manual) are :

 - Transmission Controls

 - Airbag System

 - Misc, Cruise Control

 - Aux Climate Control

 - Engine Control Module

 

Can I pick any of these to use as I am using a fuse tap? I was thinking Aux Climate Control.

 

2). Tap into the RAP relay used for the audio system. However I can't find the relay (not in the manual) and I'm not sure how to tap into this without cutting wires.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

I have included a photo of my (under hood) fuse box cover if that helps.

Go to the GM upfitter site and use the SEO/Upfitter location in the black box under the parking brake pedal. There are two RAP circuits there and several hot circuits. Add an inline fuse to your wiring. That is where my dashcam and backup camera are wired to in my 2010.

      Does anyone have experience with belltech lift kits? I've seen plenty of positive reviews from their lowering kits. They've been in the suspension industry for a while, just not so much the trail or lift side.
       
      Long travel is the end goal, but a $700 coilover kit with a 5 yr warranty vs an extended strut sounds more functional.
       
      I'm considering the adjustable 3-4" lift coilovers, part #15203. 

      -Helper spring
      -60mm damper body
      -35mm independent valves
      -20mm piston rod
       
      I've got a 2020 z71 with the 3.0 Duramax for those needing an image to work with.
      Still exploring UCA options. 35*12.5r17 will be the tire size.
      Probably going to order them next month.

      I’m looking at purchasing a ‘22 Elevation.   Unfortunately the truck I’m looking at isn’t equipped with the dual exhaust/bumper, which is what I want.  It just has the regular pipe out the side.   Does anyone know if the dealer can swap out the bumper and add the dual exhaust?

      Hey, 
       
      I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3 L. A few weeks ago I slammed on my horn too hard and the horn wouldn't stop until I took the fuse out. If I put the fuse back in, the horn blows continuously so I have taken the fuse back out but now I can't use the horn. I would like to try and fix the issue myself instead of bringing it into a dealership but can't find any videos or tutorials on how to fix the horn button switch which I think is the issue. 
       
      If anyone has any feedback, please I'd appreciate something because I am not having much luck on my end.
       
      Thanks,

      Got a 07 Silverado 1500 classic crew cab with the short bed 5.8ft. Need to replace my bed but having trouble finding another short bed. 
       
      does anyone know if I could put the regular 6ft bed on and will the wheel wheel/fuel filler neck, and bolts line up? 
       
      thank you
