Overhead Console

Overhead Console

Postby Huntsville Hound [OP] » Dec 01 2012, 1:27am

I have a 2007 Silverado Extended Cab 1500 1LT 4.8 Liter. I would like to swap out my overhead console without the garage door opener for one that has the opener. The console is available from GM parts for about $250.00 but I am wondering if this is plug and play or if I'm going to get into wiring issues. Has anyone done this?

The answer, if anyone cares, is that it is a simple plug and play swap. The only difficult part is prying the console out of its mounting brackets; takes a good sized pry bar and quite a bit of effort. However, once you exert enough pressure, it just pops loose. You then just unplug the old one, plug in the new one and snap it back up into place. Easy, peasy.

I don't know about the 2007 but my 2001 the garage door opener is an empty compartment in the console. It has a strip of velcro in it to fix the opener to. You install your OEM garage door opener with the button behind the button in the console. Is it worth the $250. and the labor?
