Hah, yeah. Basically very simple. One engineer, or even the legal department, one day just thought "hey, maybe it'd be a good idea just to program it to say "Ice" under 35 or so. And, it went through.Rollin Thunder + Black Bandit said:even our 98 cadi did that, i dont know what it does. i wonder if there are tornado warnings, like careful atmospheric conditions suggest tornados may form or somthing like that.
No, I really don't think it does. We have an '04 with the full DIC and steering controls, but the only "Ice", etc. message I've ever seen was just that on the mirror temp readout. Unless, of course, I'm forgetting a DIC message...which is possible.Rollin Thunder + Black Bandit said:you mean the 04's dont say it on the dic, on my yukon when i go to WV to go skiing it said ice possable on the dic, but my 99 before i sold it said ICE where the temp was. i guess its just a reminder to drive safely. but regarding the tornado warning i remember a call from onstar in augest where they told me that a severe storm was about 2 miles from my exact location, so i think onstar takes care of that for us.
Uh, no, but that is funny anyone at a dealer could be so misinformed to say that. There's very little of anything shared between a last gen full-size GM truck/SUV and a current '07+ gen. Powertrains, yes, in most ways...but electrical systems and all else are very different.Rollin Thunder + Black Bandit said:in 06 didnt they change every thing to the 07 stuff except for the looks. according to my dealer friend i have an 07 electrical system with 07 stuff. the only thing thats not there is the new exterior and interior looks. thats how there able to get the 2 way remote to work even though its an 06, but it was built in october of 06 and the 07s had been coming out since january of 06 so i dont know, i have personally never looked.
lol, i dont trust some of the looney techs any way i thought they were wrong. but he did in fact get the two way to work on my 06, he programed it like an 07, sadly i cant take it off the lot until late december when gm authorizes him to sell them.caddycruiser said:Uh, no, but that is funny anyone at a dealer could be so misinformed to say that.

What you were told in terms of the remote, etc. speaks very highly of people who don't have a clue, or are just saying things to say them. "an 07 electrical system with 07 stuff"...in your completely different gen '06. No, doesn't work that way...well, in an imaginary world it might, but that's it.
