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...

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:

      Like new, Pulsar LT for sale, bought direct from manufacturer. Box is included as well, just can't upload a pic of it for some reason.
       
      Had this installed on my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, took this off when I traded it in. Works great, ~10 months of ownership.
       
      Looking for $400, shipping included, within USA. Venmo/Paypal/Zelle preferred.

      What suggestions or advice is available for buying a GMC | Chevy truck? What should I watch out for -- the GOOD and BAD? 
       
      I want to come back to the GMC | Chevy family. For over 20 years, we owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself, and I LOVED that truck. Other than typical wear and tear -- I never had any problems or issues with my Suburban.
       
      I am looking at 2016-2022 -- GMC | Chevy 1500 | 2500 series, all trims (4x4), except the base models. My budget is around $35k plus'ish; yes, I understand my budget limits what I can get. I am a USAF retired veteran living off a fixed income.
       
      Yes, we tow hitch pull RVs and various trailers, but not as often as before. What are the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY these days on the GMC | Chevy trucks? Is the additional price for either diesel and/or 2500 worth it?
       
      SHORT STORY: so, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel 6cyl w/turbo Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with Chrysler | Fiat (FCA). They lied about the EcoDiesel, and after forced recall ECM updates, they sucked all performance and mpg from the truck. Buying a newish GMC | Chevy, I do not want to fall into what happened with my 2015 Ram. 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 (ExFalconFxr)

      I recently purchased a 2013 Silverado 1500 LTZ 5.3 crew cab and am averaging 13.6mpg. I understand it's a truck, but I figured it wouldnt be that terrible. I use cruise control and coast as much as possible, but still have the poor mileage. It has 117,000 miles on it. I have 33x12R20LT Trac Grip M/T Thunderer tires and XD series wheels. I feel like I should be getting better gas mileage than this. Suggestions?

      If anyone has any experience with my situation please feel free to comment with any tips or your own experiences. I have 3" front 2" rear level on my 2018 silverado. I left everything else stock in the suspension and after about 30k miles I now have completely blown my CV joints. I will be replacing the CV axels, UCA's (recommendations?), and installing a differential drop kit this weekend. Hopefully this helps relieve the angles of the ball joints and CV axel. I've never done a diff drop before so wish me luck. Hopefully it's not too terrible of an install.

      Got my full console from Ebay used in like new condition. I did alot of research to figure out how to wire it so all the functions would work. I.e. wireless phone charger and  usb/ cigarette liter ports for the rear passenger.
      I have a currently have a 22 2.7l Custom that doesn't have the required connection under the front passenger seat. After hours of looking at schematics and testing wires, I managed to hard wire my center console to the fuse box on the passenger side.
       
      Wire on the CC harness to Fuse box
      Both Red/white to F5 (Battery positive)
      Violet to F20 (Accessory on)
      Violet/yellow to F23 (Accessory on)
      BOTH Black to Ground below the Fuse box.
       
       
      The only section I wasn't able to get working yet is the USB in the middle of the console (the one with the map SD card). This one I believe needs to be connected to the radio that has the built in navigation. (once I get one I'll update this post.
