Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Screens Hi my name is Dan. about 8 months ago i had two of your TM-7170 screens installed in my 2008 silverado trucks headrests. last week i was having an issue with my kenwood dvd/navigation and had it looked at a car audio service place. as they worked on it to solve the problem they found no issues with the connection to my reciever. anyways, what im getting at is when they were working on the reciever and pulled my seat all the way back, it cause the cable plugged into the screen to come loose and cause it to not turn on when i hit the power button. i told him of the problem and at first he thought it was the fuse and replaced that and then checked to make sure there was power in the wires, he then eventually found out the connection got loose where you plug the wire into the screens wire inside the seat. before all this occured, when i used to turn my truck on the screens stayed off unless you manually turned them on, that is the way i liked it. after this incident, the screen which the guy accidently unplugged now turns on completely when i turn the truck on while the other screen stays off like it should, unless turned on manually. i compared both connections and fuses on both seats and they are exactly the same. how do i make the screen that was accidently unplugged go back to staying off when i turn the truck on, unless i turn it on manually. do u have any suggestions to what i should do or look for, thanks alot for your time and help.

THE WIRING MAY HAVE BEEN ALTERED DURING THE TROUBLESHOOTING PROCESS. THE TV WORKS LIKE THE RADIO IN THAT IT HAS A MEMORY WIRE AND A TURN ON WIRE. IF THE WIRES ARE WRONG THE UNIT WON'T REMEMBER TO STAY OFF WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED ON. ALSO CHECK THE MENU FOR THE OPTION TO CONTROL THIS FEATURE BEFORE U RETURN TO THE SHOP. CHECK THE MENU FOR AN OPTION THAT CONTROLS IGNITION KEY AUTO ON/OFF TYPE FUNCTION. THE TV'S SETTINGS MAY HAVE BEEN RESET WHEN UNIT LOST POWER

2008 gmc sierra speaker


I have a 2008 Silverado and noticed my chime was not working. They work off the front door speakers. Found out GM put the cheapest speakers on the market in them. Bought a new pair of Kenwood speakers from Crutchfield and installed them last week. They sound great. I will probably install Kenwood's in the rear doors since it's only a matter of time before they die too.

How do I remove the headrest on my 2008 Silverado 2500 HD


Hi, if you pull the headrest all the way up, you will see a button to release one side of the headrest, the other side needs to be released with a straightened paper clip, pushed into the small hole on the inside of the round trim piece. Good luck... Coop

How do you remove headrest on a 2008 silverado?


  1. Depress the button on the inboard head restraint guide to raise the head restraint to the full up position.
  2. Insert a small diameter tool into the hole on the inboard side of the outboard head restraint guide and pull upward to remove.
Note: These are head restraints and should be left in place for safety reasons!

The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).

Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.

Short version (may require three hands :-) )

DST start:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.

DST end:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.


This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.


BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/e.html
