    Default Wheel Theft Deterrent System Issue

    I have a problem with the Wheel Theft Deterrent System on my 2011 Silverado 2500HD. When on it goes off for no reason at all. I understand different things can set it off, like wind, vibration and maybe even a loud noise. It suppose to go off if angle of truck is changed, like jacking it up or towing etc. It goes off consistently for no reason. I can't even use it, it goes off every time I set it for no reason. Anybody no of a fix? Anyone had an issue like this. Only thing I know to do is replace it. I think it was about a $150 option and it may still be under warranty. I think next time I'm at the Dealer I'll inquire about that but for now I'm wondering if anyone else had this kind of problem or maybe know a fix.

    Many aftermarket alarms have a sensitivity adjustment knob on the module. If you can locate the module you can just dial it down a little. I know that usually aftermarket alarms are set pretty high sensitivity wise in my area. This is because when thieves want your rims they just bring concrete blocks and some pieces of wood. They slide the block and wood tight under the control arms and rear axle. Then they just cut the valve stems off. The tires deflate and the truck sits on the blocks. There is very little tilting happening at this time so a high sensitivity is necessary to set off the alarm .

    Who put that damn foreign manufacturer commercial on my original post? I don't like that. The one truck that would never own. If that's going to happen when I do a post I will consider never posting here again. That sucks.
    I do not see the ads that are put into the threads, so I don't know what you are talking about. But, I believe that google randomly puts ads in place, many times they tailor them to recent google searches that were done from your computer. I know that whenever I am working on someone's vehicle and I google "dodge ram rotors" (or something of that sort) I will get ads in the side bar for dodge ram rotors for a few days. It would be disappointing to hear that you left the site due to a randomly placed advertisement. I can ask @Steve about how those ads work.

    Yea, like I said, I think that they show up randomly.
