2011 gmc sierra 1500 regular cab

Anyone know why this happens

2023.04.01 03:37 lipinskiwoodworks Anyone know why this happens

2006 gmc Sierra 1500. Maybe once a month I will lose power to my radio, all the gages drop below zero, all the lights come on and says to service 4wd. Stays this way for maybe 30 seconds then goes back to normal. Anyone know why or how to fix. Not really an issue other than annoyance.

2023.04.01 01:35 Rbennett15 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 transmission problems

I recently had my transmission replaced with a remanufactured transmission (2nd time since December). I have noticed that when I accelerate from 30-35 and the transmission shifts down to accelerate there is a slight "chirp" after the shift and it engages. I've been to the dealership for transmission warranty issues probably 20 times in the last 3.5 months. Is this an issue with the transmission or does it need to broken in?

2023.04.01 00:57 Brian82wa Upgrade from 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE CARBON Edition crew cab to 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali crew cab with standard bed

I bought the 2022 truck last year in August, its my daily driver but I don't drive a whole lot so it's only just hit 5,000 miles. My old truck had a major engine break down and was gonna be out of commission for 3 months which was why I decided to upgrade but that truck I had also bought brand new off the lot, and when I traded it in, it had only just under 65,000 miles on it. And it sold really fast too because it was a very rare edition model, their were only 2 trucks like it in the whole county, the other one was an SLT model but same look outside as mine, just wish I had gotten it instead of the SLE model at the time but oh well. Anyway new truck and old truck both have the 5.3L V-8, only difference old truck had the 6 speed transmission and the new one has the 10 speed transmission. I love the 10 speed, shifts so smoothly you can't feel it shift, you can only hear the engine as it shifts. Really accelerates fast too with that 10 speed. I also plan in a couple months to get the new truck's windows tinted, will make it look a lot more sexy looking. .

Does this truck justify an LS swap?
10k plus installation for a super primo engine and yeah I get a pretty skookum truck out of it but... y'see fellers. AM BROKE. (14k in bank but mortgage payment is 1.2k) I spend that much on 4x4 wheels on'a square that goes brr and I'll be havin' a grand old time that's for damn sure. But ill also be living in said skookum truck in which case, thats also for damn sure... K thats enough of that.
TLDR(in the middle of the post because fuck you): If I poor a ton of money into this bucket I need the assurance that ill be able to atleast break even when the CRA comes for my kneecaps.
I see comparable regular cab sierras going for all kinds of prices online. What's your opinion on the one's asking 15k plus? Is that just fairytale shit? Or can I actually turn a profit if I gussy this fucker up to the 9's?
This truck isn't very rusty by canadian standards. Frames good. Trans good. Fuel lines fucked but I got a new one. Steering pump and I have a complex relationship. Windshield has a 30 inch crack vaguely resembling the coast of chilè. Not alot of dents, and I can fix them but personally I think they're a part of the appeal sort of like those geeds on watches spending a years tuition on a rolex with water damage. New radiator and those tires are michelins with full tread. Suffice to say though: the engines fucked or else I wouldn't be swapping it. Does SLE mean anything?

2023.03.31 23:34 Aiden_masdea GMT 900 Sierra gauge cluster swap

so I have a 2011 GMC sierra 4.8 SL that does not have the oil pressure gauge or battery voltage gauge. I want to swap to an SLE gauge cluster that is chrome with the oil pressure and battery voltage gauge. I saw somewhere that there is a wiring harness behind that I can just plug in the new gauge cluster without having to program. I was just wondering if anyone can confirm this in any way possible, thanks.

2023.03.29 20:39 StaplePT Can you please advise on these issues before upgrading my early 2011 13 inch MacBook Pro with OCLP ?

Early 2011 13" MacBook Pro. I'm currently running High Sierra on it, I have an SSD(OS on this) and HDD (superdrive taken out) in it as well as 16GB of RAM. It's hooked up via DP to a 27" external display. I recently got a new battery for it too. It works great for what I need after 12 years.
I want to upgrade to a newer OS as I've found that:
  1. Safari works better (much less of an energy hog) than any other browser (was using Brave or Chrome before) and I miss a lot of the Brave features/extensions and I'm hoping a newer Safari can fill the gap.
  2. Because I'm unable to install some apps as they require (mostly)at least Mojave.
  3. Mail app isn't supporting some of my e-mail accounts anymore. Other mail apps need a newer OS.
  4. I think I'd like some of the aesthetics and features of a newer OS.
I'm hesitant to do the upgrade because
  1. I have a couple apps with licenses that I don't want to re-pay for / don't know if I can transfer them to the newer OS or downgrade if a newer OS doesn't work out.
  2. I'm not sure how to backup everything. I have a 2 TB external HDD with regular time machine backups on it. Is this sufficient?
  3. I don't know which OS to go for : Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey, Ventura - what am I missing ? There's been so many lol
  4. I really don't want to have my laptop's fan on all the time. It's a big reason why I switched from Chrome and Brave to Safari. I want a smooth experience. I can tinker and google solutions but I hate it so the less bugs, the better.
So can anyone kindly let me know whether I can and if so, how to address all the hesitancies ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

2023.03.29 20:10 BodybuilderSuper2074 New Ride! 2005 GMC Sierra SLE, extended cab SB with 4x4. 103k miles, picked it up for $10.25k. How did I do?

I've been in the market for a truck for over a year and a half. I do not want a payment. I'm coming from a newer corolla and was able to sell that and pay for this in full!
Got it from a gentleman up in NorCal. He was the 2nd owner. Both took great care of it especially with fluids. The 3" lift on it is solid too. Came with automatic running boards and the camper shell.
I was dead set on the Tundras for reliability but the price of those are ridiculous. 200k + miles and still paying over 15k for those. I read about these Sierras/Silverados of these years and they seem extremely reliable. Actually, out of all the vehicles I see on the road near me, the 2000s GM trucks/SUVs are the most common. That means something.
Any advice for a GM first timer is welcomed! Happy to hear your thoughts!

2023.03.28 21:36 shankska24 My Rivian R1T 1 month review

Rivian R1T 1 month review
The R1T is just a great vehicle all around. Great quality. Attention to detail. Feels well built. The tech is amazing. OTA updates, I think I have done a total of 4 updates now since I got the truck a month ago. Every update, new features added, changes to the vehicle, etc. I mostly drive in all purpose mode, but had take one “road trip” (more on that later) and drove a lot in conserve on that. Ride is smooth and quiet. It is effortless to drive, but thrilling at the same time. I almost compare to driving a sports car, because of how fast it is. I just love it and yet its still a truck when I get out. For comparison, I am coming from a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 denali. I’ve had a few years as the daily driver and to haul the family around, kids with 2 car seats. I have also had a fair share of “sports cars”, with the most recent being a 2019 BMW M2 competition. The quality of Rivian and this truck is up there with BMW, easily. This truck replaces my daily driver tho and I am thoroughly happy with it thus far.
The main driving factor and justification for me to get this truck was primarily how much I spent on gas last year. We have a lake house 180 miles from our primary residence we visit often during the summer. Also, the updated tech and safety of the truck helped. I have put almost 1000 miles on the truck in the past month. For around town, I have been around 1.7-2 mi/kwh. I have the 22” wheels. This has been in the 30s-40s ambient temperature mostly. Some warmer days mixed in there and coming full time in my Midwest region very soon to compare efficiency increase. For spring break we went down to our lake house a couple weeks back. I averaged 1.96 mi/kwh for the whole trip of almost 3 hours of driving. 90% of the drive, I switched to conserve mode as it was my first real EV road trip outside of a big city. I had tailwind for the trip down and temp was mid-40s. I was pleasantly surprised to arrive at our lake house with almost 100 mile range left in the “tank”. I charged up to 100% prior to leaving just to be sure and to get a good feel with the estimates and what to expect. Again, my first long drive/road trip. On the way back, quite the opposite. Major headwinds, 15-20 mph. colder temps. These 2 really crushed the range. I only was able to charge up to 97% to return home on the 180 mile trip, but I felt confident based on my experience and trip down a few days prior. I arrived home with 50 mile range, so the high winds and colder temps took away 30-40 miles of my range. It didn’t help that a third of the trip I drove ~84 mph. one thing I did learn tho is when you put in your destination on the navigation, the arrival range is very very accurate. I have come to trust this in the truck and gives me a sense of ease and confidence. It does adjust as you drive, so keep an eye on it, but without any major outside variables (wind, cold weather, etc), its usually right on the money.
My sierra had a tonneau cover. I really do miss having a tonneau cover. Unfortunately, my R1T does not have one. I am trying to hold off for the Rivian manual cover. Maybe I will break down and get a DIY or aftermarket one. Honestly, not sure tho. As a family of 4 and a dog. We were able to pack up all of our things for our week stay during spring break, with nothing required to go into the bed of the truck. The frunk is awesome and large. The gear tunnel is also awesome. Able to store all our luggage and items in these 2 areas no problem for our road trip. The access door from the back seat to the gear tunnel is awesome as well. I was able to strategically place the kids snacks and diaper bag for easy access during the drive. This was great to hide it away and give more room/space in the cabin.
I just love driving this truck. Everything about it. It’s a full electric truck, whats not to love. Like I said earlier, its almost like driving a sports car. Its quick and nimble. The throttle response is fantastic. The day I got the truck, I immediately configured the regen mode into high. Going into ownership of an EV, this is a mind shift and something that is easily prepared for. Its an EV, not an ICE. No more coasting, no more excessive braking. Regenerative braking is the future. I have no regrets of this and if you are prepared and understand this, you will not have any regrets either. Actually you will enjoy the driving experience with this. Is the high overwhelming? Maybe if you are not prepared, but not for me, no. I love the brake regen and I have become accustomed to it now. Seriously, why use the brakes? Its just amazing to drive with one pedal. The throttle is very responsive and I feel one with the input experience and deliver exactly what I want power wise the truck. Also, the let off (regen braking) is the exact same. Its second nature now. One thing I am pleasantly surprised with the power and regen braking is parking my truck. I back my truck into my garage at my house. Same with my old sierra. I HATED backing my old truck into the garage space because if I got caught on the lip to the garage floor, my goodness getting a half ton truck over a little 1 inch hump without thinking I would back through my house and into the back yard was ridiculous. The lag of the throttle, the quick transitioning from accelerator to braking. Horrendous. And I had no idea until I backed my new R1T into the same garage space. Its amazing. Power to all 4 wheels. I back over this 1 inch hump like its nothing and don’t even notice its there. With exact confidence in the power I am delivering to safely back into my garage space. Easily let off the accelerator to brake/stop and place the truck into park exactly where I wanted the truck.
The mobile charger is great that comes with the truck. The 120v traditional plug and the 240v 4 prong. The 120v is obviously slow, but good for certain situations. When I first got my truck, I used it for about 2 days until my hard wired charger got installed by the electrician. It worked. About 2 mi/hr. I was able to charge it from mid 40% to 70% in about 2 days. I also had to use the mobile charger at the lake house during spring break visit. When I first arrived, I just plugged into the 120v in the car port, as it was quick and easy, while I was able to focus on unpacking and getting the kids situated in the house. Thankfully we also had a 30 amp 3 prong that I am able to reach with an extension cord. I switched back and forth between the 2 plugs (120v/240v) to get the truck charged back up during the week, with numerous in town trips and lunch/dinner etc, eating away some of the battery charge I gained over time by being plugged in when parked at the house. The only gripe I have about this is the 4 prong is obviously the only adaptor today. I hope rivian releases more adaptors. I had to use an adaptor from the house 3 prong to 4 prong and the issue with this is the charger thinks its on a 40 amp circuit, when its on a 30 amp. I always kept forgetting to lower the charging amps to 24a every time I plugged into the 3 prong adaptor. Either way, it worked great and I got charged up to 97% in time to head back home. About 11 mi/hr if I recall correctly. Also, I am very lucky to have a tesla destination charger within a couple miles of my house. Conveniently located in a high traffic area we visit often, great restaurant and activities. I was able to plug into this tesla destination charger a couple times throughout the week when we were in the area by using the lectron adaptor and it worked flawlessly. I gained a lot of battery charge throughout the week doing this 2 or 3 times. One time I was already at 70%, so I went ahead and changed my charge limit to 85% to get some free juice while we were there and didn’t have to charge until next day at the house. Just a quick note on the hard wired wall charger, which is rivian, it works as you would expect. I have it set to the max 48 amp setting on a 60a circuit. I get 24 mi/hr when charging at home. I plug in every time I get home and no issues with it so far. Its quick and seamless. Always have enough range to do my daily driving as required and never have to worry about it. Never going to gas station again (at least to fill up a trucks gas tank), maybe yeah for my wifes tahoe or maybe to fill up a 5 gallon gas tank for the lawn mower and pressure washer haha. I have yet to test out DCFC on the truck. Honestly not sure when that time will come. I purchased the truck with full intentions of always charging at my house and at the lake house. That’s where I will charge 99% of the time. No plans or intentions of doing cross country, at least at this time, so DCFC will be far and in between for me. Luckily, they just installed an EVgo DCFC a block over from my house, so maybe I will test that out just to know the process and what to expect soon.
I had a couple things come up on the truck. Main thing being alignment being off. Steering wheel to the left, but pulled to the right. I went ahead and scheduled service right from the Rivian mobile app, which was great. Received a call back to get scheduled at my local service center. Was about a week and half out on a day that worked with my schedule. I also had something come up after I created the appointment and was easy to get my concern/issue easily added to my existing upcoming service appointment. I was able to receive a great R1T as a loaner vehicle, so that was awesome. I compare to past ICE cars I have had serviced, I would always get the low end vehicle they offered and dreaded the loaner in comparison to my car getting serviced. Ie my 2019 BMW M2 comp, I would get a 2020 bmw 328i, boo. The pickup process was very easy and seamless. They had my truck plugged in and fully charged to my set charge limit so that was awesome. It would be like a dealer filling up my gas tank after getting service done, which would never happen ha. All in all, a great service experience to get some small items addressed, so I am happy to experience this first hand and builds more confidence in the brand and my ownership of a Rivian.

2023.03.28 20:12 Grouchy-Revenue7724 Toyota rav vs gmc 1500

Should I trade my 2011 Toyota RAV4(130k) miles with a 4cylinder for my dads 2010 GMC Sierra that has 174k miles? Both cars run great, just considering the truck because I’ve been driving the Toyota for 4 years now and kinda want the truck for a change. I’m 22yo and I don’t want to have a crazy nice/flashy car yet, just considering if I should change it or keep the good ole Toyota
