    Welcome to the club. You want to remove the On-star fuse because if your programming the truck and On-Star sends a signal to your truck it will mess you up. Those fuses are in the under hood fuse box.

    I never removed those fuses....if you dont have a on-star subscription dont worry about it. I have the Max Energy. You can turn the radio off while its programming.
