    Great description, thanks! We plugged everything in as you listed it - but our On-Star light is still Red. Is there something else you can suggest we try?

    just because its red does not mean its not working. mine is red also but everything is functional. i can send directions to my nav from my phone, i can contact onstar and they send directions directly to my nav etc. one thing to mention is that you have to have a newer nav (i installed a 2012 nav into my 2008 tahoe) for the directions to come to the nav. i did not work on my old nav. hope this helps

    Re: 2007 Esc- install of 2011 Tahoe VCIM #22794713 - help with onstar activation Tech

    I am looking for the EL-49903-3 splitter so I can hook up an 11+ VCIM to a 10- vehicle. The website linked to in this thread goes nowhere. I found the parts in the picture online but I'm not sure if it is what I need or not. Any help would be appreciated.

    just installed the new vcim, splitter and Bluetooth antenna. everything works perfect, I have a green light. Onstar thinks that I am in a silverado and gave me 3 months free service. Dealer said that they would charge me $175 to hook up tech 2 and flash my vin on the unit. I think that is crazy!!!
