Have you found out how to fix the heated seats in your truck? I am having the same problem and it just started recently. Thanks
#32 of 69 Help changing automatic locking doors
Mar 15, 2008 (8:01 pm)
I just bought a 2008 Silverado. I would like to program the automatic door locks so they do not automatically lock, but the best my dealer could do is get them to lock when I have been going 8mph for 3 seconds and unlock when I put it in park. In my 2004 trade in I was able to disarm them. Is it possible to turn them off? Thanks for any help you can give me to this annoying problem!!

Sorry Korn.................yer outta luck!
GM and the feds gave us another "nanny" to save us from ourselves !
From 2005 and up you can only set the auto locks to either lock when
put in gear or at 10 mph. NO more shutting them off like our 04s did !
Heres other gem "nannies" we now have with out GMT-900s:
No more turning off the door/key-in/seatbelt chime warning !
All you can do is have it either sound off loud or soft.............
Or throw away your stock radio for a aftermarket unit. The chime has
been generated thru the radio since 03 or 05 I believe.
My 01 had a seperate chime unit I just unpluged!
But Crutchfield audio DOES sell a module to enable a aftermarket radio
to produce warning chimes! Must sell a lot of them ya think?
Another is the wonderful Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
Mine has been going haywire since new. First it was just a warning light.
After being ignored now it won't show any tire pressures and I get multi
service lights and a chime!
I think my truck wants to mate with the dealers Tech 2 machine !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My 03 Caddys TPMS ain't made a peep since new !
Nice truck tho..........No other issues and I work it hard snowplowing or

I don't know about the fed law. Some other brand of trucks can have the door locks turned off completely & the passenger side seat belt chimes can be turned off but the light still flashes. Maybe your dealers telling you that like gm dealers do.Don't Know But I do know gm dealers lie.

So what exactly is your point? That you don't know federal law? or that some other truck's chime can maybe be turned off? That dealers lie?
I would think the best bit of advice would be to read the owner's manual? Make sense to you?

The post should speak for itself. I don't know if there is a law or not . But other brands of trucks can be changed.So why can't gm.if others can do it. About beinging lied to check out other gm post about some of their experiences. beinging told their problems are normal.I know i've been lied to alot of times.about the gm cars & trucks i've owned.But it won't happen again

Being lied to isn't brand specific rather dealer specific. On any given day you could go to any dealership and get lied to and it could be just that they are too busy to care. I don't see how your post helps the original poster cause all you're saying is that all GM dealers lie, right?
I remember all those Toyota owners being lied to and being called liars when they tried to get relief for their sludged vehicles. But that is way too off topic.

I'm saying why don't gm change the settings if other brands can.Most people don't like their doors to lock when working in & out of their trucks.Or seat belt chimes going off when moving a few feet.A flashing light should be enought.The man should change dealers. He might get it changed.

Not to be a wise A--,but when i bought my 3 trucks i bought them for what i thought a truck was supposed to be,to haul. Mine didn't have all the creature feature toys to go wrong, and have to pay mucho bucks for. IMHO,its time to get back to basics.
O.K,now start the flaming.
