I have the same issues starting up, screen flickers and then goes dead. Randomly needs to be powered back on, thought it was because of usb connection with android auto causing the problem, also happened when only streaming Bluetooth to the truck.
Dunno.. good time for and audio upgrade I guess

What did you do to your Sierra/Silvy today?

Im guessing youre out of warranty or dont have one because youre not the original owner or something like that?

They say that good intentions make good pavement but I disagree. It is intent, coupled with follow through, that makes all of the difference in life.

I'm still getting a slow crank every now and then, not slow slow but slower than the norm.
It pretty much only does it when it's been running, but if it does it on the first morning start up it puffs a bit more diesel smoke than normal but I assume that's just the slow start?
It's got me stuffed, I've checked the batteries, the cables, load tested.
No idea?

My screen never flickered or went dead, but may be the same issue. I've also read that it when issues happen with these units it could be the HMI or HMI cord or something like that. Good luck with an upgrade, the ones I've found are not cheap alternatives. Watch this video, it may help you.

Pops and I got the hub assembly swapped out this morning. Would've been done in about 45 minutes from wheel off to wheel on if it weren't for spending another 45 minutes trying to find my impact extension and adapter

Taped up some now unused electrical connections, cut out the reducing cone on the factory tip with some very careful torch work and took it for a little drive. Was going to drop the DEF tank but decided to put that off tomorrow.

Love the extra power, throttle response is way better than stock, its got a great rumbly sound and no drone at all. Not worrying about it sitting at the dealer ever again waiting on backordered emissions parts is a huge plus as well.
