Alright here's the scoop. All chevy's with factory nav have the Bose System from the factory and that is factory amplified sound system. The reason the sound is not very loud is you are missing the amplifier that is normally amping up the outputs from the nav unit. To fix this problem them there is one easy way and that is an aftermarket 4-channel amp. And the back up camera is another easy one. Yes it can be done. Most reputable customs shops can do this. It requires a special interface that can be quite costly though. Also the truck will have to take a trip to the dealership afterwards to be reflashed and have the camera function turned on. Honestly in my opinion an aftermarket dual-din in-dash DVD player would have worked way better for what you are doing. It would fix the audio, have an input for the back up camera already, be upgradeable, sound better, look better, and cheaper. But that's my opinion. Anyways any other questions just post'em up.

#108 of 169 2002 Sierra - retrofitting homelink
Jan 17, 2008 (10:09 am)
I've searched all over this forum and a couple of others without any luck -- hope someone here can help me.
I've a 2002 Sierra extended cab with the long overhead console in the roof. It currently has the slot to hold a single portable garage door opener, but I want to replace that with the GM 3 button homelink module. I picked up a used homelink module and have removed my console, however the homelink module has 3 wires (orange, black, and brown), while my old console only has the orange and black going into it. Can someone tell me what the brown wire is and if there is an easy way to connect this up?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Rough guess on those wires would typically be orange- 12V constant/ brown ACC+ / and black ground-

Mike, I have a 2004 Sierra with the long overhead console. Were you able to find a replacement overhead console with the built-in homelink? If so where? I have called my dealer to price one and they claim they were not available, but I know better than that. Any suggestions as to where to fine one, parts numbers, approx price etc would be greatly appreciated.

You can check here:
You can email the vendor with your VIN to confirm it's the part you're looking for.

Hey bpari005 I see you work at a custom shop, Have a question about leveling kit for 1500HD. I have an 03 model crew cab 4 x 4 which when purchased had the front torsion bars cranked up to level truck and to accomedate 295-75-16" tire, rides rough.I was told that Off Road Unlimited sells a leveling kit which changes out the armature that the tortion bar fits into and changes the pitch so that you can have the cranked up hight but gain your front end travel back, thus allowing it to ride smother. Is this true, will it help my ride, or are they just trying to make a sale.
#115 of 169 Silverado Lift Kits
Dec 23, 2007 (12:23 pm)
Am considering putting a small lift kit on my 07 4x4 Silverado NBS. 2"-3" lift, enough to clear some 33s, not enough to screw up on-road handling and destroy u-joints. Anybody done that? What kits are out there? Why is one better than another? It's been a few years since I did a lift.
Also, have heard different stories about lift kits voiding the factory warranty. What's the real deal with that? If that's true, why do dealers offer the kits installed on some trucks?
Finally, does the lift mess with the ABS/Traction Control?
Thanks in advance.
