  1. Tire Pressure - are the TPMS's accurate?

    2nd Gen Tires, Wheels, and Suspension
    Truth is most gauges are off 20 years old and many newer ones. Most cheap gauges are not calibrated. More expensive ones are good new but can go out of calibration. But on the other hand 1 pound in a street tire is not critical like in racing. I have and use a better gauge from a circle...

    Agree Driveline slack is a long time trait.
  3. 8 Speed 8L45 Colorado transmission demons

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    Right now the first step is to get the latest flush. It is not the old triple flush. They have a new machine and a new fluid that appears to help a number off issues. My own experience the hard shifts are gone so far and the more I drive the smoother it is up and down. It did address the...
  4. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    No speed warning is another feature that you set the speed for a warning if exceeded. We are talking about the feature that shows a speed sign for the speed on the road you driving on. It tells the current speed limit with a speed limit road sign on the dash. GM did a horrible job of explaining...
  5. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    Just to be clear and stop confusion. 1 you do not need On Star to show the speed sign on the dash. 2 you do not need a Nav radio to show it on the dash. 3 your truck has a built in GPS and Nav program that works the speed sign. 4 you also do not need On Star subscription to work your built...

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    I feel for you. I have worked with 4 different GMC dealers and none have given me any trouble or grief in the last 20 years. Same with the Chevy dealer I had worked with. I know there are bad ones out there but I have avoided them so far. One thing I do before I go in I get all the info I...
  7. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    You have the NAV programming in the computer no matter if you have a radio or not. As for the dash. If you have a 17 the speed sign is only in the info screens like tire pressure etc. You have to turn it on. As for 18-19 they have the same info screen but also can turn on the sign in the...
  8. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    No problem. Sorry I was not clearer. It is just one of those things that can be simply complicated LOL!
  9. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    My info came from a story from GM on the GM authority web site. It states "In reality, the speed limit feature relies on a roadway database in the vehicle’s navigation system". So it is a part of the NAV but the signal is still in play even without the NAV radio option. The same if you have no...
  10. Latest on the transmission shudder issue

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    It could be worse. I had a GMC/Buick dealer that my dad too his Buick to have a simple repair. He called me later to tell me the hundreds of dollars they charged him for. They sold him an expensive fuel injector cleaning he did. Not need. Even worse they charged him a large fee to balance his...
  11. Update with no speed limit?

    True! That was an appalling move.
  12. Update with no speed limit?

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    Yes speed limit info only works with built in NAV systems. It has nothing to do with Onstar. Also the 17 models only have it in the info screen. The 18 and later models have it in the info screen or it can be placed in the standard digital speedometer. The 17 lack the in speedo speed sign.

    Under Warranty good dealer would have spoke up a bad dealer will only address what you state. Now out of warranty they would have sold you a shock and tried to tell you that you needed the fuel injectors cleaned at a cost to you and profit for them. Not all dealers are the same.

    For warranty work you need to present the problem. Now if they were looking for business they would have told you.
  15. Latest on the transmission shudder issue

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    Roads are a problem as they have a shudder of their own too often. Also if you are looking for it the transmission will shift often and if it bounces between gears a bit it can feel like a shudder too. In some cases I wonder if what people think they have really is a shudder. It is almost...
  16. Tire insurance

    2nd Gen Tires, Wheels, and Suspension
    It is a profit maker for tire stores. Selling peace of mind is very lucrative. Here is how one needs to look at this. Look back and just how many tires have you lost in the last 20 years? I wager a majority of you have never lost one that could not be easily repaired. In 35 plus years of...
  17. 2020 Owner's Manual warning against aftermarket LED replacement bulbs

    2nd Gen Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    I see so many want to pounce on GM about denying warranties. You have to look at this from their side. Years ago we used 12 volts to run the vehicle and al, it had to do is offer spark, light and start. Today we are contacting Satellites, to running power everything and computers more...
  18. 2020 Owner's Manual warning against aftermarket LED replacement bulbs

    2nd Gen Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Yes if you get the wrong combo it can play havoc with the electrical system. GMC found out the hard way as they started to put LED back up bulbs in the 2017 models. They thought it would give more light which they did. But the problem is the voltage draw was different so the Body Control...
  19. Rear Fender Protector

    2nd Gen Appearance & Body
    Just tell the dealer the stone film or paint protection for the quater fender. Yes you can replace it. Sounds like it is of already. So all you need to do is clean the aread well. When installing paint protection film it's recommended to use a couple drops of soap mixed with water. We use...
  20. Qi wireless charger and iPhone

    2nd Gen Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Sorry you are correct on the 8 being wireless it is just not compatible with non QI chargers. I have a 17 but I upgraded the module to a QI unit like the new trucks have. GM now offers an upgrade kit if I read it correctly. When I updated I just used a adapter harness and module and notched...
