    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Didn't mess with the dip switches, but....

    I took it out this morning and noticed I hadn't reconnected the single wire pink plug. Once I plugged this in, right away the clock started working and within 5 minutes the GPS with a line through it disappeared.

    Problem solved.

    What through me off was that the Nav system while I was driving was moving. Just not showing me in the right location.

    Haven't had a chance to fully test unit yet, but I'm sure it's working properly.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Welll even though you failed to connect the direct antenna connection the unit will still capture some amount of signal. And in navigation you need to aquire at least
    a few satellites to get a proper fix. Glad you solved it. I am waiting for my LockPick to be delivered. Wish it would have come yesterday before this trip we are on.

    Joe, I think you might not have considered the integration of the VSS into the Nav. If all he was missing was the GPS antenna, it got zero, zip, nada signal. It doesn't pull in the GPS all that great when all is perfect! I think the Nav was just registering the VSS.

    Chris, welcome to the happy community of Lockpick users.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Chas, great point. I got back to town today and found my LockPick delivered. Did the install, and yes, tucking the wires was a pain. I also mounted the switch on the face of the trim panel. Tested the unit real quick and with the switch depressed I had full phone use, also had no time to test video. But, my line through GPS did not go away after 20 - 30 minutes. Was too busy tonight and we used the CTS. Made a quick call to Tomm and he assured me it will come back. Fingers crossed, test drive in AM and I will post.................... stay tuned................ thanks........... Joe P

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Hi all,

    When I first start the car the DIC says "Stability Competitive Mode" and the "TC" light is lit. After a couple seconds the DIC switches to "Stability Sys Off". After 20 more seconds, the "TC" light turns off by it self, but the "Stablity SYS Off" remains on the DIC. I can turn on the "Stability Sys".

    My manual says if I install any aftermarket stuff in car things like this could maybe happen. This only started showing up after I installed my "Lock Pick". Could this "Lock Pick" be interferring with something in the computor?

    Please help,
    Chris

    The lockpick does not do anything other that interrupt the GPS Signal and VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor wire for the Nav) - The two have nothing to do with any TC or Stability Systems.

    Tomm,

    I'm interested in a lockpick and a Blinder M47. I noticed that your site only lists the M45. Are you going to carry the 47 in the future?

    Thanks

    Hi Tomm,

    Is it possible the VSS interacts with the Tracsion Control? I removed Lock Pick and now the TC button works. I will leave Lock Pick out for a week and see if problem comes back. Then re-install Lock Pick.

    Please PM me and I can get you a special price on the Blinder M47, They are in transit to us and we should have them in the next 1-2 days. Sorry for the late response but I was on vacation.

    The lockpick device is directional, It only changes information in the GM Lan going to the navigation. Its probably just a coincidence that they happened almost at the same time.

    Hey Tomm,
    Did you ever get more info on the video output for the Nav screen to tap for external monitors? My headrest units will be delivered tomorrow and I would enjoy the cool factor of sending the dash display to those screens.
    And I thank you also for the LockPick and quick service.

    There are no video outputs on the STS Navigation unit, It only has inputs. What I had to do in my STS was add an additional DVD player in my glove box which powers my rear headrests. I also have an output from the additional DVD player going to the AUX inputs on the navigation unit so the video can be seen on all three displays at the same time or just the rear.
