    Default Driver Information Center -- Should I push dealer..?

    I recently (about two weeks ago..) purchased a 2010 Silverado LS (4x2). It's not a base model but it's also not top of the line so I had just accepted the fact that I didn't have the DIC and was planning on eventually installing it since it's relatively cheap and easy.

    However, I was just cleaning out my glovebox and noticed that I had my original window sticker. The window sticker says that my truck should have come with the Driver Information Center but I certainly don't have it.

    It also says "Deluxe Roof Console" which I don't think I have.. I just have the map lights and airbag indicators, nothing "deluxe" about it.

    Should I go back to the dealer and see if I can possibly get these addition features that I apparently paid for and did not receive installed?

    Does anybody know what the Deluxe Roof Console would be? I've searched here and the Internet in general and don't see anything about it.. before I go complain about it I would like to know what I'm complaining about. I've wanted the DIC ever since I read about it on here, so I will almost certainly be complaining about it, but the Roof Console isn't really that important.

    Be careful with how you interpret what the sticker says. I was looking at mine a few days ago and also noticed that it listed something about the Driver Information Center. When I paid a bit more attention, though, I realized that it actually said "Driver Info Center Display". It's subtle, but I think that just refers to the fact that you have the dash display that will show you the DIC information but it doesn't mean that your truck came with the actual DIC buttons. At least, that's how I see it. Your sticker may say something different, though.

    X2 on that. Mine actually says "Driver Information Center", without "display", but it was the same deal. You still have limited access to it through the odometer stem, but I wanted to be able to change my door lock settings and monitor the tire pressure. The manual actually gives instructions for using the DIC "with and without DIC buttons", so it must all be considered DIC.

    * goto: http://www.compnine.com/vid.php
    * input your VIN
    * that'll give you a readout of the RPO codes (items which should be on the truck, from the factory)

    Browse through those codes... see if either the DIC or the Deluxe Roof Console is listed. If so, you got a legitimate beef with GM (via the dealership that sold the truck to you).

    Also, if those RPO codes are listed on the VIN readout (see link above)... check the STICKER (typically inside, to the bottom of the glove box). If those RPO codes are not listed there... hmmm? But if they are listed there, you should get no argument from the GM dealership!
