Thanks for your response. As stated I have a 2010 4x4 Silverado Ext.Cab LS. No outside air or compass on DIC. However I do have the temp. sensor in the grill in front. Also I get a warning that "Ice Possible" so something is telling me that. Outside air probe is telling me about "Ice Possible". Funny it will not give me air temp.
Do you know if this is a program issue? Exactly what style is my LS model?


Could you please PM you VIN#? This will help me to answer these questions better. Please include the specific questions you would like to know. Thank you.

Matt,

I have seen some talk about the 2012 Silverado temp indicator in the DIC. I have a question. I added the DIC to my LS. Everything went great, however I Can't get it to read the outside temp. I know it must be in there some where. Can any one tell me how to activate the ambient temp?
It sounds like it could be a firmware issue. Maybe an update is the answer. Please help.

thanks seadog720.

Hey seadog720,
Welcome to the forum! to have the outside temperature display in the DIC of your truck, you will need to press the "Trip/Fuel" button (the picture is of a road going off into the distance). See pages 5-32 and 5-33 of your manual for details on this.
If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask! I hope this helps get you the information you need.

seadog720, you will need to buy the mirror in order to get outside temp, it is not available within the DIC. I have the same truck.

The GM Service guy will tell you it is available, I think he is mis-informed.

It's an easy intall, it's better to buy the mirror with a temperature sersor and then you don't need to cut into the wires of the current sensor.

You will need to get 12 volt to the mirror, the cab roof liner and A piller trim are easy to remove and hide the wire. I installed mine within an hour.

Good luck.

seadog720,
I'm checking with some internal resources on this. Thank you for providing your VIN! I will be back with you once I have a response (the question is submitted electronically and so a response may take a few days).

Although more expensive, this one might be a better option if you want to keep your OnStar:
