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.

Has anyone tried or researched upgrading the factory backup camera? My camera is very blurry in my 2014 Sierra SLT and am looking to improve the quality. I’ve seen cleaning the lens on the current camera so I’ll try that but I’m not ruling out a replacement camera if there is a higher resolution option on the market. Before anyone asks, yes I cleaned the dust and dirt off.
Looking to replace the headlights on my 2015 Sierra Denali but most of the headlights I’m finding say they aren’t compatible with trucks that have factory DRL’s. Has anyone replaced their headlights with one of these that say or have you found a pair that are compatible? I really like the 2016+ LED Headlights but don’t want to drop $1,000+ on them. Thanks for the help!
Has anyone ordered an aftermarket Denali grill online? My truck is a 16 SLT, but I think the addition of a Denali grill would make it look even better. I see all kinds of “Denali style” grills online and don’t want to order one blind just to find out it’s junk. Any reviews are appreciated!
There have been a few post on mods including tying the cargo light to the reverse and tying fogs to the parking lights (but that mod makes the fogs on all the time and I don’t normally drive with my fogs on with others on the road). So I have 2 detailed mods below. Like the rest, you will need an appropriate diode. I used the 1N004. Remember, the stripe on the 1-way diode shows which direction it blocks.
1) Like the K2 mod where the fogs are still selectable while low beams are on But come on automatically with the high beams (ironically it is also the same pin locations and wire colors of the K2 series)
2) The other part makes this truly an all forward light mod for the T1 as it also includes the mirror’s task lights to also turning on automatically with the high beams. DID NOT WORK SINCE THE TASK LIGHTS STILL TURNED OFF WHEN TRUCK IS PUT IN DRIVE. I will keep working to find a solution for the task lights to stay on.
