GPS antenna is still hooked up if you really want no gps just unplug it.
give me a minute and ill get you a connector view. this is also the XM antenna however so you may have to snip a wire if you want one and not the other
round 2 pin connector, it can vary based on vehicle build so shoot me a vin if you need, I can't copy the connector view because GM is using some dumb new image viewing software, i'll send you a screenshot off my tablet after work.
thats all it will affect, you will have a red x through the gps if you got it, it unplugs under the headliner in the very rear center, there is a couple wires, disconnect the 2 pin connector. If the nav is still working right now then yes you could get the location to about 15 feet assuming his x works for the NSA. What did you do to disable onstar?
vv4 u2k ubs ue1, these are the possible RPOs for what we are working on, if you get his vin you can have any GM parts dept print you the rpo list let me know which ones you have and i can get you a specific picture. They likely just pulled the infotainment fuse. But if he is worried about it the antenna will take care of GPS and cellular.
regular production options, the build list of the vehicle ie. how its equipped, should be a 2 pin connector either way but its good to check, but really just pop down the headliner unplug one drive outside and see if your gps is inoperative if so good if not unplug the other plug.
I'm sure I'll have one in for a bit tomorrow I'll pop down the headliner and take a picture of it for you.
just message here I'll leave it open
Yes it snaps in it doesn't need to be removed completely just pulled down slightly i'm stall waiting for the car to arrive, but its two coax wires in one connector connector should be purple in color
i sent a picture to your e-mail, i couldn't upload xps here
terminal 1 and 2, that is what the connector should look like.
they are coaxial wire, should be large black and coated. possibly grey and an uncoated wire, will depend on RPO which we don't know. Sorry this clown bringing in his today has not showed up yet.
remember the old cords you used to use to plug in a VCR or a NES to your TV. the ones that threaded on. That type of large shielded cable is coaxial, these are about half the diameter of that but the same type of cable. and 1&2 disconnect together so yah both off.
Missoula, MT. I live out of town hence my poor response time during non business hours sorry about that.
Definitely, I live towards Coeur d'Alene on the river
unplug them then drive the vehicle outside and bring up the navigation display and see if there is a red x through the GPS symbol, if so you got it. I did not see a picture if you sent one.
that should be it I cant quite see the connector but you will not hurt anything unplugging it so disconnect it and see if its off. Once its unplugged we can probably see the connector better.
no it won't with any consistency parking inside can disrupt it though. the plug should be about 8" from where it goes into the antenna
no it won't with any consistency parking inside can disrupt it though. the plug should be about 8" from where it goes into the antenna. yah try the purple one first and see if its off
It should have a little lock tab, instead of squeezing one side to release it you can lift up the little lock with a pic or small screwdriver, you can see what the lock should look like in that picture i sent.
yep that looks like the one
No problem let me know if when you get it.
can you send me the VIN if your at the car, i was running on assumed RPO codes.
you have the different options than what I was looking at so yours will have a different antenna,remove the radio cover it just prys off using a plastic flat bladed tool, then remove the two screws from the flasher plate and remove it then remove the 2 screws holding the radio in, once its out you will see to coax connectors on the radio, with the key on remove them one at a time and see which one kills your gps.
I would say unplug it at the antenna for this one too but it is buried so its easier at the radio.
on the rear one of the plugs will give you xm back and leave the other apart to disable cellular
so one was the cellular wire, the other was probably not related to the antenna, yah you can do this just use a flat plastic tool to pop that piece off around the radio then its only 4 screws, they have 7mm heads. so plug back in the green connector and leave the large cable disconnected,
there are two wires that are one wire connectors, SI doesn't show me the differance but just unplug one and leave the rest in and test it then do the same with the other
