    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Here is the post that explains what I've pieced together about the when

    It is possible that it is the lockpick that caused the speed limited messages and subsequent work done to my car.

    My first post / experience dealing with the speed limited to 120MPH issue was on this thread at -> 06-01-12 10:32 AM Central time

    Here is my post from installing the lockpick -> 05-20-12 05:10 AM


    So within 2 weeks of installation of the lockpick I started having this issue.

    This post details what GM has indicated this has caused.

    Not sure what you can do for me, if anything really, but I thought I would put this out there...

    My lockpick is apparently causing interference on the data communications system even when it hasn't been used.
    Is there an updated version of the unit that I can trade for?

    Details of the lockpick I received are:
    NU-STS (pac audio version - from Best Radar Detectors , and review -> Reviewed by: Erik W from Minnesota. on 7/10/2012)
    Date Ordered: 5/12/2012
    Order Number:: B98313

    Rev 1.3.1a
    Lot 001

    We have a close relationship with Coastal Tech's but the item you purchased last year is the PAC unit. I know the Coastal units inside and out because we have been working with Coastal for almost 8 years but PAC is a different story. Due to lack of demand Coastal Discontinued their STS Lockpick several years ago.

    There is firmware in the Lockpick units and the Coastal units has USB ports but PAC units do not. You can call PAC support and see if there is a firmware update for you unit and if there is it will have to be sent in for the update. Their website shows current firmware is Current Revision #: 1.1.1a (You can look on your unit for a sticker with the firmware loaded on your unit to see if you are current)

    There is no other unit for the 2008+ STS and with the vehicle killed off and with the small amount of them floating around there will not be any new development in the STS. We have also killed off the 2005-2007 STS Lockpick because of the lack of demand for it.

    Thanks for responding. That's more than PAC has done.
    I did notice that my firmware was newer than what their site shows.

    Would a modded 05-07 unit work on the 08+ via the toggle switch method?

    Yes, But we are pretty much done with them. We ordered enough parts to only produce one last batch of 10 units and we did not start the build until we had committed buyers. We reached the limit and are finishing up the last batch now. We have 6 units left 3 shipping tomorrow and the last 3 shipping on Monday and then we are done with making them. They consume way to much of my time and I just cant do it anymore.

    Understandable that you're finally done making them. You've given plenty of last calls.

    I'll just have to bug PAC. Is the site I purchased from an authorized vendor?

    If you purchased from our site yes and you would have full warranty & support. I highly suggest you call them at 866-931-8021 and not email.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    I called them today, sat on hold for about 20 minutes.
    Got the line of well it only has a 1 year warranty and you are passed it now by about a month.
    You can email us at customerservice@aampofamerica.com and provide a copy of the receipt and describe the issues and hopefully they will be able to help you out.
    Nobody here has heard of anything remotely like this so maybe you just have a defective unit.

    I was not able to find out if there was a newer revision of the unit available.

    Also, Silly question but did you remove the PAC unit and did your issue go away?

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    No questions are really 'silly' but I have not had the issue come back.
    I noticed that the message will come up within 2 or 3 days of driving after doing a battery cable disconnection, then appear at random times afterwards.
    I did the battery reset method (disconnect battery and touch pos/neg cables together for about 30 seconds to reset the car) at the same time that I removed the unit, the message has not come back.

    Thanks for the update Tomm can't wait for mine and the gfs to get in she's pretty excited for the nav to be unlocked. So by next friday or so we should get it?

    Thanks for doing this for us as we just purchased our STS not to long ago.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    No real progress so far with customer service (pac-audio).
    I did get a reply that included the following details purportedly from their engineering department, but no offer to replace, no indications that they have an updated unit.

    Code:
    The interface, NU-STS communicates on the Low Speed GMLAN bus connected to the radio. 
    The Electronic Suspension Control Module (ESC) does not have direct communication on this bus but rather communicates on the CAN bus and the High Speed GMLAN bus in the vehicle.   
     
    The NU-STS only filters a speed message to the radio making the radio “think” the vehicle is moving very slow. 
    This “slow” speed message is only sent to the radio during the time the NAV override is in use. 
    All other times the interface does not filter or transmit any messages on the low speed GMLAN bus.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Update from customer service:

    Code:
    The firmware on your unit is the most current; there is no ‘update’ available.  We suggest that you return to the original place of purchase should you wish to have the product exchanged.

    Luda' - Don't you also have a second add-on for your iPod? Try swapping the order of the two. Maybe there's an interaction.
