2019 Silverado Custom - Adding USB-C


Recommended Posts

Part: GM 13525431, Receptacle Assembly, Multi Media *Jet Black

 

Just posting a thread on here if someone who has a 2019 Silverado with the one USB type B port, you can easily upgrade to a module that has a USB-C, USB-B, and an SD card port very quickly and easily in under 5 minutes.

 

I bought mine from eBay and it ran me $27.19 plus shipping.

 

I bought a trim removal kit on Amazon and used the one circled to pry it from the bottom and when the bottom popped out a bit, I pried it from the left side and it just popped out very quickly. After that, just unplug the old one and plug in the new one.

 

FYI, I also bought the module that just has just the USB-C and USB-B ports (without the SD card port) and I don't believe that one would work since it needs an extra cable to be plugged into and I was searching around and didn't find one -- you probably need a different harness for that one.

 

What I've noticed so far is that Apple CarPlay will pickup my iPhone a bit faster, skip through the songs a bit faster, and it charges my phone a bit faster, as well.

 

I haven't tried the SD card functionality yet but I can hope that it may be a necessary requirement for people that have IOR radios to upgrade to the IOS ones with navigation.

I had just recently replaced the single usb to the dual usb without the sd card slot in my 20 custom tb. It works just fine without the other cable plugged into it. Both USB ports work and they light up white as well. I had plug my phone and my wife’s phone in at the same time and the radio recognized both phones. The only thing that I don’t know is if the usb-c does the fast charging or not. That’s a mute point for me since I drive nearly 40 minutes to work.

I want to run one in my center console. But I dont want to do any splicing. Do you know the harness number or the connect? I know how to build harnesses so if i knew the connector numbers I could easily build the harness.

Does it light up and if so is it the same white color? 

 

Yes it does and yes it is!

Good to know! I'll keep the one you installed in storage to see if someone comes out with some sort of harness to plug it in. Something tells me the extra cable is probably for higher data speeds?

It was just plug and play for me and I didn't have to do any splicing. If your truck has the port with just the one USB, you can plug in the existing plugs/cables into the one that has the USB type C, USB type B, and the SD card -- it's a direct replacement and you get the entire functionality of it.

 

But if you want to plug the one in there with just the USB type C and USB type B ports without the SD card reader, you're going to have to do some digging and maybe contact someone that has that already in their truck and see where it leads to.

Just a note.  I did this in my truck, with the SD card, and neither plug can "charge" my Android phones while using Android Auto.  They just "maintain" charge.  I haven't tried the one without the SD yet...

My center console doesn’t have power. Didn’t come equipped with anything no rear outlets and nothing inside the armrest

I finally went ahead and ordered one of these from eBay for myself.  It'll be nice to have the USB-C port and the SD card slot.  I'll try to update after I get it and install it.

I installed this today. The usb works normally, I haven't tried the usb-c port yet. The sdcard slot seems to detect that I have inserted an sdcard, but it can't read the mp3s I have on it. I get a "No supported media found" message. Has anyone see this error before?

Big thanks to @Semedar for posting this.  My part came in and I successfully swapped it in.

Here is the thread that I created to document my installation:

      I have a 2021 6.2 Chevy Silverado, and just did a muffler and flapper delete. Sounds amazing but is way to loud on the highway and drones way too much for me. I am wanting to put a muffler back on but I want one that is as loud as I can get with no drone. I was looking at the Flowmaster 50 Delta Flow, the 40 series delta flow, or a Magnaflow 22 inch muffler... I am wondering the pros and cons of all of these, if they drone, and how loud they really are. I have watched a bunch of Youtube videos on them and they just don't do a justice for how loud the drone is. If you guys have any other suggestions for what to put on there I am open! Thank you!

      Any help before I have to leave the truck at the dealer for a few days would be great. 
      2017 Silverado
      Dual 7 pin and 4 pin connector
      Test the 7 pin :  8 volts when grounded to the wiring harness
      Test the 4 pin : 7-8 volts when grounded to the wiring hardness
      Test the 7 pin :  8 volts when grounded to the Frame
      Test the 4 pin : 7-8 volts when grounded to the Frame
       
      7-8 Volts on when testing at the fuse panel  under the hood. Grounded to the engine block. 
      Relay seems good, all 4 fuses are good.  Other Fuses like lights, radio and wipers all bring back 12v range. 
       
      I am not sure where to go from here. I don't want to miss a ground wire or something. 
      I did clean and re-attach the ground wire next to the brake controller under the rear of the truck. 
       
      Thanks,

      I have a 2021 Silverado 1500 Custom. As soon as it starts getting cold outside (around or just below freezing) the screen on my back up camera frequently goes green. Brought it into the dealership last winter and they couldn't recreate the problem so they weren't able to do anything. Anyone else have this happening and know if there is a fix?

      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
