I was just here working on the this Chevie 2004 year. I was changing the fog lights to LEDs, I’m using these LED lights, I like the product already installed one this is how the other one looks.

How you do this is usually pop it out to the back or you get like an L shape and just pop it out. You just pop out, you can see those are the little tabs and that’s new, you set up plug-and-play there you go.

If you don’t wanna take off the whole bowl, the whole land you could just take it up disconnect it from the back end. Pull it all, it has two little tabs what you want to do just put something pointy, just stuck it in and just pull it out.

For me and each side just pull up there you go old versus then you to put it back you know the drill how you take it off put it back in. I have a little cruise you hear that little kick, you can just connect it why are you up here unless you want to go under the truck. How were you guys find it more convenient, just plug and their little grooves. We’re putting the light back on you need a line the little tabs some jobs the tab just put them down, so they cut our line. Once you do that there you go two LEDs fog lamps done.

let me show you guys the difference between the regular halogen and led as you can seel ook at the light over there and the regular.

Road Trips for safety on Summer Travelling

Road Trips for safety on Summer Travelling

Summer vacation is coming soon, no matter you are at working or you are a student. It is a good time to relax yourself and family. Also, It’s that time of year to think for a getaway. Whether you are planning to go on a long-distance journey or a short weekend getaway, no matter you are leaving just for the weekend or going on a two-week-long vacation. We have some road trip safety tips for you.

1) On the day before you start your journey, you should clean out your car and have it inspected. If you don’t know how to do this thing, please find a professional. Remove any trash or things in the car that wouldn’t be used for the trip so you could get enough space for the luggage. At night, you should get enough rest.  Driving at fatigued condition can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.

2) Share driving responsibilities. If this is a trip with your family, you should share the driving time. One person takes 2 hours on driving, if you get three drivers, every driver can have 4 hours at rest. Your guys help each other to keep an extra set of eyes on the road.

3) Bring a detailed map or road atlas. This thing happens usually, you almost reach your destination, and your GPS no longer receives its satellite signal, you have to ask local for directions and sometimes they guide a wrong direction to you, this causes you to lose much valuable time. Do yourself a favor and bring a hard copy map with you for those just-in-case scenarios. GPS systems and smartphones are great, but often times lead you off course or die from battery exhaustion.

4) Make sure to pack all of the essentials aside from just your clothes:   plenty of water, food, fruits, shoes, clothes, toiletries, pillows, cash, and anything else you might need in case of a car breakdown. Also, consider bringing a road trip safety kit with you that includes a first aid kit and jumper cables.

How to install Interior LEDs on 2nd Generation 2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Today we have a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado extended also known as the GMC Sierra quad cab that will be installing led into your lights on let’s go ahead and get started.

Replace map lights

We’ll be using one of the trim piece tools to pry loose that overhead cover to get access to those map light bulbs. There are four points of contact that are being made for that cover, you’ll be using the tool to pry in and release two of those edges to get that cover to come out. Then using the pointed wedge tool that comes with your kit to help remove the old halogen bulb and replace it with the LED bulb in your kit.

These LED bulbs are polarity specific, sometimes they will work after the first attempt. If they don’t make sure that you reverse them and change the polarity and then try it again. Once you know that the balls work pop the cover back on in place.

 

Replace dome lights

For the rear cabin dome lights, you’re going to being the same trim tool as the front overhead map lights and you’re going to be prying from the passenger side to release the cover. Once you release and let that hinge comedown, it’ll release the entire assembly, it’ll come out of your overhead console. With access to the bulb, you can use the pointed wedge tool get that halogen bulb out, replace it with an LED bulb.

Make sure that if it doesn’t work the first time you flip it around change the polarity reinsert it and test it again before reinserting that cover back into the overhead console. Put it into the passenger side first then put the driver’s side in, use that hinge to lock the whole piece in place.

 

Replace license plate lights

For the rear cab light, you do need a head screwdriver to release the assembly from the roof liner, take your head screwdriver, remove the two screws on the left and right side, you’ll be able to pretty easily remove that entire light housing. That light housing has two sides, the furthest left and the furthest right are the cab lights, twist it counterclockwise to release the bulb assembly, remove it.

The license plate lights are a little bit trickier, you have to pull backward on the bulb release the clip that’s holding it in place. Turn counterclockwise to separate the bulb housing from the assembly, once you have that taken care of you’ll have access to the halogen bulb again the lights are on, once you’ve confirmed that the light bulb is working go ahead and reinsert the assembly for the bulb back into the housing, and snap that bad boy back in place.

Get Your Car Started and Comfortable from Anywhere with Chevrolet RemoteLink Control

Chevrolet RemoteLink Control

With the colder seasons quickly coming to an end, you may be looking forward to days where you won’t need to scrape off your windshield or sit in a cold car until the heater warms up. Don’t forget though, once the days really start to heat up, you’ll have to start worrying about where you park your car when you’re out running errands or while you’re at work. Modern cars have great air conditioning and window tinting is a great way to keep most of the heat out, but it’s still tough to get your car to a comfortable temperature sometimes.

That’s why GM offers the RemoteLink Mobile App on vehicles equipped with OnStar, allowing drivers to start their car from nearly anywhere by using their smartphone. Like traditional remote start system, this feature really comes in handy during the winter and the summer when you need to get your ride comfortable before you even get in. However, since it is based on your smartphone, the range isn’t limited by the range of your key fob meaning you can get your car started before you even leave your desk or as you are checking out at the grocery store.

Just like you can get the air conditioning running in the warmer months, RemoteLink allows you to get the heater on your car started during the winter. Imagine letting your car warm up so you don’t have to spend so much time scraping ice or frost off your windshield when it’s cold out.

“Chevrolet, paired with the RemoteLink app available through OnStar, offers one of the most winter-weather ready lineups of any manufacturer,” Philip M. Abram, GM chief infotainment officer, said.

During the Polar Vortex this past season, records for the number of RemoteLink activations in a single day and in a single hour were shattered by drivers looking to warm up their cars before even stepping outside.

How to change led interior light bulb in 2007 Chevy Silverado

I am going to change out the interior lights of my 2007 Chevy Silverado and we’re play soon with some ice blue LEDs.

The first thing I do was turn the interior lights off by pressing the interior light button which is on the left side of the steering wheel. That will keep the lights off while the doors are open.

Take the frontier lights out, take little notches four of them with a flat tip screwdriver. It is easy to pull the bulb straight out, pop the LED in and press the button to make sure they are working. Put the faceplate back on these is what I found dude just put the two notches in front abundance at first press up and then just pop it in.

So to change out the back interior light we’re gonna add two notches. On the passenger side, we’d also have a huge in the back, so take two carefully pump out the first match by the button a couple rude by about the second notch do that or at least a faceplate and then pull the hinge out. Take the bulb back out place it with whatever bulb you want to go back in.

You can kind of move them around just a little bit give them a different angle. When you’re ready to put the fixture back in, I do is come up here put the notch in. First, on the passenger side, make sure the faceplate is facing straight down then slide the hinge. And then pop your two notches back in on the passenger side and that should take care of your interior lights in the Moodle or on the back.

Remember to come back and turn your interior lights back on. So I’m that one guy for maybe seven and this is how I changed out the interior lights of my 2007 Chevy Silverado.
