    GM Techlink

    Amazing what a few Google searches can turn up. Found this GM Techlink. You can search it for "SRX" and turn up some interesting reading that relates to some of the complaints that have been posted here.

    Great site. Did you happen to pick up on on another website referred to in some of the Tech notices?

    Enter your vehicle Vin number here and you'll find some interesting information including all the Modules on your vehicle that need programming:

    Excellent finds Steve and algiorda!

    I went to the GM Tech Link site. I know most people won't take the time to search through multiple pages, so I extracted all of the relevant SRX info and put it into a PDF. This will make it easier for people to find any problems they may be experiencing and the corresponding fixes. Because the SRX is so new, Service Techs are still learning how to repair it. You could print this PDF and actually take it to your dealer. This should save everyone time and eliminate some trial and error.

    Re: GM Techlink

    This is sweet! Did I miss this in the manual? I don't recall seeing it. And it answers my question from today. I took an 800+ mile trip yesterday and the car was covered in bugs. I usually don't go through this type of car wash but I took it to an automatic one (required to put it in neutral). I went to shut off the rainsense wipers and noticed that they never came on. The lever was in the right position but it was not active. Now, I know why.


    Wipers Car Wash Mode
    By Blog Admin on May 1, 2010 12:00 AM

    Some customers with a 2010 SRX, Equinox or Terrain may comment that the rear wiper and/or the front Rainsense wipers (SRX models, if equipped) turn off when the vehicle is shifted to neutral. This is called Car Wash Mode.



    The intent of Car Wash Mode is to disable the wiper(s) while in an automatic car wash to avoid potential damage to the wiper arms. For the rear wiper and/or the front Rainsense wipers to be disabled, the vehicle must be traveling below 3 mph (5 kph) and the transmission must be in Neutral. The Rainsense-equipped wipers lever (Fig. 18) must be in the Intermittent position (between O and 1) or the rear wiper switch must be On.


    Never mind. I just found the relevant section in the manual. I am sure that I completely missed this the first time through. Either that or I spaced it and didn't connect it to car wash conditions.

    With Rainsense, if the transmission
    is in N (Neutral) and the vehicle
    speed is very slow, the wipers will
    automatically stop at the base of the
    windshield.
    The wiper operations return to
    normal when the transmission is no
    longer in N (Neutral) or the vehicle
    speed has increased.

    Cool site. Nice find Steve.

    It doesn't seem obvious to me but is there a way you can tell which modules NEED programming with newer software or is this just a list of the history of the programming that has already been done?

    Word of caution. Guys 'n Gals, I would be very careful about telling your dealer you obtained this information from GM TechLink. They might complain to GM and the site could become password protected and we'd get shut out.

    You could just say, "I found it doing a Google search."
