    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    IDatalink manager called me back. Very helpful and found that I very foolishly overlooked a specific fuse (I had checked multiple fuses since this started an missed this one) if you have an issue like this, F53 folks. I am kicking myself in the rear for not finding this on my own given how I...

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    Latest update. I spoke to IDatalink, and they are dismissing it entirely as a clock spring issue. I asked why this all suddenly started after installing the DSR1, and the support agent insisted it was a coincidence. The clock spring and column module are in the steering column per the agent. I...

    5th Gen Stock Stereo Upgrade Options?

    Yes, rear trim needs to come off. You might be able to pull the carpet out without removing the trim, but you definitely need to remove the trim to put the carpet back. I did not have to remove the seatbelt anchors at the bottom at either side to remove said trim. A panel popper and a hook tool...

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    Crutchfield suggested I call I datalink after removing all power connections (I had fuse out for power, but still grounded). Fingers crossed

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    Crutchfield support is telling me that I cannot add an aftermarket amplifier to my truck. They are claiming that a message saying I can’t add these components would pop up when purchasing (it did not). The support rep also thinks I have an ANC module (the V6 does not). He doesn’t seem very...

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    I'll give it a shot (calling Crutchfield). The DSR1 working or not working is secondary to my "Holy S***" moment that the other systems are not working. I have today and tomorrow to work on the car (good weather, and I don't have to be anywhere until Thursday). I was enjoying the upgrade work...

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    My apologies I meant to say DCH3, if you check the image in my previous post. MY apologies.

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    I appreciate the feedback. However, Crutchfield and Idatalink seem to indicate the DCH3 is the right harnass for a V6 w/o ANC or Amplifier (I have base 6 speaker). The link you provided for the ACH4 states 2019 1500 w/ amplifier. Further, even with the harness and DSR1 removed, my truck isn't...

    Post DSR1 install and battery disconnect, multiple systems malfunctioning

    Hello all, I just went through the process of installing a new audio system. I did the process stage by stage to avoid the DSR1 install until I had replaced the speakers, added the new amplifier, new subwoofer, and had most aftermarket work completed. Yesterday, I go to install the DSR1. As...

    V6 driving impressions

    Nice feedback, and great to hear some reflections from someone who lifted a V6. Did you have a Tow/Haul mode on your 2015? Did that improve drive-ability on hills at all?

    5th Gen Stock Stereo Upgrade Options?

    Brutal. Well, given the current circumstances, I have time. Knowing is part of the battle. Thank you!

    5th Gen Stock Stereo Upgrade Options?

    I appreciate the input. Unfortunately, no ANC module in my V6. I did purchase the DSR1. Seemed to make the most sense from what I have been reading. I've pretty much got it all figured out. I am just concerned about replacing the speaker wire in the dash (not really sure how easy that will be...

    5th Gen Stock Stereo Upgrade Options?

    Thank you for the feedback. If I get the DSR1, I wouldn't need to pick up LOC's , right? Since I put up my prior post, I have mentally committed to redoing the wiring and installing an amp. I think I can manage the door speaker wires fairly well, but do you (or anyone else) know how the dash...

    V6 driving impressions

    Personally, I do not think that the 8speed is too busy under normal driving (I have a V6 Crew Cab 4x4). I will say it down-shifts during up-hill grades, but if you keep your foot in a consistent throttle position, it maintains the gear. I can't speak to towing personally, but I have done a good...

    Engine size

    If someone were considering a Rebel (with the added weight of the off-road focused gear), or planning to tow, it's best to get the V8 (IMO). I have a V6 Crew Cab 4x4. The truck hauls well and moves around town pretty well. Highway power is acceptable. In normal driving, I can only say I wish I...
