hey all

Wanted to see if anybody else has had "weird errors" I am specifically referring to things that your truck has done once or twice, not major malfunctions/ warranty repairs

My truck has said "unnamed road" on gps on every road and not been able to find locations or POIs two different times. It will follow your location on the map and show road names on the map but be unable to guide you. Restart the truck and it fixes itself.

I've had a one time Check engine light that seemed to be a fluke

Weirdest happened yesterday when my blinker didn't make any noise. Check to make sure Blinker was working and it was, but no click/ticks. Turned the truck off and back on and all is well.

Anybody else?

Power reset (or shutting the engine off and then back on) fixes most computer issues. Works a lot of the times on my Ag Leader monitors that I install in tractors and combines and such. If it's stuck or is just acting weird, first thing to always do is a power reset. Usually fixes the issue. Just something in the computer I guess.

I however have not had any weird errors with our truck.

Had that on mine, but a restart didn't fix it right way. Found a post on some other GM forum that it was an update issue... It went away a couple hours later.

Had a few of those... then a LOT more of them. Code reader always showed some kind of exhaust or oil/air mixture issues. In my case, it was either bad gas or a communication problem between modules. Required full reset at dealership to fix communication issues (no charge).

I've had that once as well... took me a while to realize what was happening. Something in the back of my mind knew something wasn't right, but it took a while for the rest of my brain to figure out it was the blinker.

Anybody else?
Worst one yet...

That hung around for about a day. In the meantime I had no nav, no bluetooth, no backup camera, no remote start, no radio... etc. My dealer had no idea what it was or what to do about it. Made an appointment for the following week to "diagnose" it. A few google searches suggested that some updates can be sent via the OnStar cellular network and that one of them didn't download correctly. The next day it was gone and all was back to normal. Adding the following text just so this is searchable:

I'm guessing you all have or use OnStar, Nav, and have internet on the truck? I have never had these issues, but we let the free trial periods expire and never renewed any of that. Don't wonder if it isn't something to do with that.

I let all my trials expire and didn't re-up them. The nav error of "unnamed road" came up the day after my trial ended and I was about to raise hell and then it fixed itself

Funny you mention that. The Power Off reset also is effective in clearing faults in the helicopter world. As so much of them are now fully automated, glass cockpits etc...Not quite as simple as turning the key off and back on, but the logic is similar.

Same... all my onstar stuff is expired. I hear that Chevy can still use it to push updates, even if you don't have service. I have no idea how true that may be.
