04 Silverado, has Onstar digital upgrade.Says "phone not availble

Have a 2004 Silverado, bought used. Chevy records say the previous owner got the digital upgrade. Onstar says "phone not available" whenever you put key in, take key out, open door.

Chevy dealer said $1000 to fix. The fix is to "replace the Onstar module" $750 and labor and stuff to complete the grand. They say there is no way to disable the "phone not available" without messing up the stereo and other stuff tied into Onstar.

Not going to do that. I'll learn to love the "phone not available" message.

SOURCE: Turning off the OnStar in a 2005 TrailBlazer

The OnStar module is under the rear seat, passenger side. You should be able to just pull the connectors out of the module. Just the rectangular ones.

The dealer is thinking about the power amplifier for the Bose radio system. That's in the fender at the right rear of the car, but that's not the issue here.

Call onstar and cancel the service, pull fuses, then remove the top of the dash and unhook the onstar module behind the passenger side airbag. I think it would be much easier just to call and cancel

SOURCE: how do i disable onstar gps in 2003 chevrolet 2500 series crewcab

Unplugging the Onstar unit should deactivate it and if you can get to it. I haven’t yet taken the time to locate the Onstar unit in my Yukon. In older Yukons, Tahoes, and Suburbans the Onstar was in the cargo area, above and behind the right rear wheel well. However, it’s my understanding that when they redesigned the Onstar unit for smaller size, they started putting it behind the instrument cluster in the dashboard. Good luck

Sounds extortionate to me. You can expect that for dealer prices perhaps but $750 for an alternator! The alternator itself should cost around $120 to $280 for a remanufactured unit and perhaps one hour or so labor.
It looks like you have been charged much more than 1 hour for fitting. Ask your garage for a breakdown of the work carried out and the price of the parts replaced. They may have fitted an original new part which can cost a lot more.
The price of sensors also varies so find out what they charge exclusive of labor.

I need to know the wire diagram for my 04 Silverado crew cab. Previous owner removed the original stereo and put a horrible after market stereo. Now I want to replace that with a after market stereo can...


use a test light and a battery. the black is ground, orange is constant and yellow is your turn on and off (ignition). then take a 9volt battery to check your speaker wires. front should be green and light green and gray and light gray. double check it has ben a while, rear is blue and light blue, a yellow and brown. you do not need any other wires in the harness unless you are using a power antenna or amp which you can use the yellow wire for ignition. double check with test light and 9volt battery. the 9volt battery will make the speaker pop noise, you then know you have a speaker when it makes that noise.

Can't activate onstar in the vehicle by the blue button on a 2004 envoy


Is the LED on the right side of the mirror green or red? If it's red, or not illuminated at all, there is a problem in the onstar system that needs to be diagnosed with a scan tool. Also- that model may also still have the analog onstar system. GM had an upgrade program that ran for a few years that allowed you to upgrade your onstar to digital hardware. If you're still running the analog onstar hardware, it's not going to work. Again, going to a reputable dealer would be the best way to find out what's going on.

Installing CD player


here is the wiring schematic.
Constant 12V+ Orange Switched 12V+ Yellow Ground Black Illumination Gray Dimmer Brown Antenna Right Window Trim Front Speakers 6 1/2" Doors Left Front (+) Tan Left Front (-) Gray Right Front (+) Light Green Right Front (-) Dark Green Rear Speakers 4" x 6" Side Pillar Left Rear (+) Brown Left Rear (-) Yellow Right Rear (+) Dark Blue Right Rear (-) Light Blue

And you will need a Wire harness... Metra #GMRC-LAN-01
And a mounting Kit Metra #99-3305
And antenna adapter Metra #40-cr10

This is for the basic radio... if you have upgrade NAV/Onstar/Premium sound.... there are different wiring harnesses available.

Let me know if you need more help.
