if it's possible, somehow, to get a 2008 cts from gen 7 all the way to gen 9, and get it to work with remotelink....
that'd be pretty damn cool
The reason I ask is I'm not too far from him and have a tech2. If he hasn't gotten it working, it may just need the setup procedure run on it.
In my 2004 truck, I was able to run a setup procedure where it should have identified the modules int he truck. In the CTS, the only options were set language and remote stolen vehicle slowdown clear, so I'm not sure what it would take to get it to work. maybe when connected to the Gen9 VICM some other options would be present in the Tech2... Let me know if you want to get together some time and take a look.
Figured i post to this thread also as it has more followers...
Has anyone that has tried the '11 Onstar9, has tried this part to "combine" the gps and cell signals??
Its a special service tool from GM.
Some info from the description of the tool:
"The next generation of On-Star (Gen9) requires a new adapter EL-49903-3 (diplexer) harness that supports a composite of cell and gPS signals on a single coax input. EL-49903-3 will adapt to the current EL-49903-1 antenna."

The one I bought did not work. The prongs on the 2 plugs that went into the box were slightly different. They would not lock in. I had to return the unit. I bought one for 200.00 on ebay. Its from a 09 CTS made in September on 09. I plan to take it in on November 12th to get the car reprogrammed. Does anyone know how long it should take?? Dealer says they have no idea but its $120.00 an hour
If anyone is looking for a 11 VCIM, I have one for sale. Never got around to installing it on my 08. Since I'm selling it now, I figure I should see if someone on here is looking for one first. Posted it in the classifieds, and was asking $200 with the antennae, but I'll take offers!
