Just out of curiosity, you didn't happen to turn the ignition off when the truck was still in reverse, did you? That's the sort of thing that's commonly missed on testing because it's not supposed to happen, and the test designers weren't smart enough or thorough enough to consider it. My father-in-law had a first gen new beetle turbo. If you turned off the ignition while it was still in drive and the driver's door was open, the electronics would reliably lock up solid. Upon restart, lights would flash, no way to stop the warning dinging, couldn't shift... instrument panel just a mass of warning lights with dead gauges. Battery disconnect would fix it.Thank You Aaron,
I went out to move the truck a short while ago and everything seemed fine but I didn’t think to put in reverse and back up because it seems that may have been where the problem started.
I backed to unload some material and when I started truck up to leave the 360 camera was still on and the screen was frozen.
I will test that in the am.
There is a procedure for doing a hard reset and a soft reset on the 8.4 radios. Perhaps someone can chime in as to how it is done....hopefully the procedure is the same on yours....maybe this guy @Ram4Sam knows ?It’s been working fine today so am going to hold out until it happens again.
Be careful of this guy......who knows what he knows.......:wink2:
It depends on the state. It looks like North Carolina's calls a car a lemon if (a) repaired four or more times for the same defect under warranty, (b) in the shop 20 business days or more under warranty for the same defect, (c) still has the defect under warranty and the manufacturer refuses or is unable to repair it.B) For those that have experience with the lemon laws what is required to take place for a vehicle to fall into that category?

Been down this rabbit hole myself.......:banghead: Best thing to do is educate yourself on the process, it will be less frustrating. Go to NC dmv website and read up on the lemon law process and see exactly what the req's are, they are usually pretty specific. Document EVERYTHING... phone calls,dealer visits, etc. You should have got a book with your new truck that explains the warranty/lemon law process also. I went through the arbitration process, no lawyer but the same rules, much faster. Check out www.ncdsusa.orgAccording to www.ncconsumer.org
I found the answer for this one, it just has to go to the dealership for 4 times for the same problem or spend 20 days or more at the dealership and it qualifies for the lemon law.
They also state not to proceed without an attorney and don’t worry because attorneys fees are paid by manufacturers and most don’t require anything up front.
So tomorrow will be visit two for the same thing I guess at visit 3 ( hopefully it doesn’t happen ) I will seek counsel.
Great info, thanks for sharing. They said due to the build date my truck is too new too new to be compatible with the current update. The tech said if it happened again they want to pull dash and radio so I would need to leave the truck.
Not real keen on that, I think the only way I will let them use my truck for a guinea pigs is if they throw in a bumper to bumper 100k mile warranty.
They opened a star case a week and a half ago with no avail so far. In CA it takes 30 consecutive days for lemon law. We are on the way. So far they don't have the slightest inclination of what to do to repair it.Man Zackolas,
That sucks, I hate to hear that. Do they have a STAR case opened up on it? It is my understanding that they released our version of radio/electronics without beta testing. What date is the starting point no clue and not that our trucks do anything different than earlier builds they are just somehow different in the configuration.
My state says if the truck stays in the shop for 20 days or longer for the Sam problem it qualifies as a lemon law vehicle. It’s a tough call because I love my truck but if it comes down to that with mine I am going with a 2020 GMC 2500 Denali. My brother retired from GM and his wife still works there so the family can buy 2 vehicles a year at GMS pricing.
It does not have to be 30 consecutive days, just a total of 30 or more....They opened a star case a week and a half ago with no avail so far. In CA it takes 30 consecutive days for lemon law. We are on the way. So far they don't have the slightest inclination of what to do to repair it.
