    My '07 Silverado didn't come with the DIC buttons on the left side of the dash. Well I just remedied that issue! I ordered the buttons and dash plate online with the p/n#19159438 and installed it yesterday. Installation was easy with minimum tools required. I highly recommend this!

    I ordered this from a gm accessories store, but you can get it here too.

    The only issue I had installing was putting the bolt back in that holds the Parking Brake release handle. Damn Jeezus clip wouldn't stay in place! I found it was easier if you started the bolt just slightly before replacing the knee bolster panel. Like I said, very minor problem. Took all of about 20 minutes to install using a phillips head screwdriver and a plastic putty knife (in lieu of a plastic dash trim tool).

    That's great, I wonder why they didn't put that in at the factory, the buttons can't be that expensive of an option. I guess some people don't want them and prefer them to be more hidden???

    What was the cost? I didn't see that in your post. Glad it was easy to get done.

    It was only about $85 plus shipping.

    No programming required! Just 15-20 minutes to install and your good! The connection for the buttons is already there. Like Steve said I don't understand why they didn't include the buttons in the first place. They do give you many more options!
    Good luck!

    I've now driving a lot of the 2007 and 2008 GM Trucks and SUVs and it's just a major step forward towards providing the driver with valuable information when driving down the road. Gone are the days when I'll be satisfied with just the odometer and trip.

    Thumbs up on the great find! Who would have known that you just could get the buttons and hook them up. I wonder if it's the same for all vehicles?
