Wink Any Car Audio Experts???

I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 that the infotainment system is acting up, of course it is out of warranty. The touchscreen is unresponsive and is constantly switching to different screens, etc.

Iím wanting to replace it, do we have any TBH car audio experts that can help me out with what my options are? Iíve searched somenand called a couple local shops.

Has anyone replaced theirs? Any other people have issues like I am experiencing?

Thanks.

Mine did this a few times too, same year and model truck. Disconnected battery for 10 minutes and hasn't done it since.

The replacement is easy, but I would try ^^^^ first. If you want to replace, go to infortainment.com. They have factory radios, with all the stuff do DIY, and if you want someone else to do it, they have authorized installers as well.

I hope the other two options work for you though, factory stereo replacement is not cheap.

The kits and harnesses of today are easy if you decide to replace it.

X2 they will send you everything you need. I was the local high school installer back in the late 90ís got back into it recently with my kids vehicles and the new stuff is a breeze. I did my sons 2015 Silverado and it was simple.

The screen is controlled by one or more computers. Doubt it is the screen messing up......

My dad had a 2015 Silverado and his was doing the same thing. Disconnecting the power from the battery worked a couple of times, then it didn’t anymore. He got the radio replaced at the dealership while out of warranty. Cost him a bit over $600.

Wait quick question, did you replace the cabin air filter recently? Thereís a plug back there that is easily bumped and will make the radio go all ****ey if youíre not careful

I have a 2017 F150 with similar issues. Did all the troubleshooting I could find online to no avail. Looks like it's the APIM, $1300 to replace.
