    Yes it was. Go to M2Mods a vendor on this forum and Deereguy makes them. He will get you fixed up.

    Either should work I use the MX but I would say use android. Don’t use windows. I’ve found a few things that would not work on my windows version so I switched to android and haven’t had a problem.

    Mx we have heard no problems at all

    MX+. Haven’t heard any problems but does support iPhone so you can use their regular OBD app if you want.

    Guys Im looking for some help. Ive searched through the forum and cant seem to find an answer. I have a 2015 Express. I purchased heated mirrors with turn signals. I am trying to find the setting in Alfa to turn on the turn signals but am not finding the function in the doors section or the BCM. Anybody have some advice?

    Body Computer/Car Configuration Change/Doors-Heated Mirrors Present & Mirror Turn Signals Present are the 5th and 6th ones down in Doors after Wireless. I added tow mirrors that are heated and have turn signals with puddle lights and they work fine.

    How do you wire the truck without the harness? Do you run out of wire length to tie in the ballast? I’m looking to ditch my resistors and relays. They have been nothing but a headache for me for 3 years. If there is a wiring diagram amongst this super popular thread I missed it.

    Thanks

    Once you get rid of the relay harness, you should be left with something similar to this no matter what kit you have (bulb, ballast/igniter, grommet with extension)- [​IMG]
    Connect the to circled in red together. Connect the one circled in green to the low beam connector inside the headlight housing (the one that got unplugged from the original halogen bulb).

    The biggest problem with our trucks, and running HID’s is that there’s no way to adjust when the headlights come on when they are switched to “auto”. HID’s require at least a 5 sec delay when you first start the vehicle to give it enough time to get to full voltage before engaging the headlamps. The lower voltage puts a serious strain on the bulbs and ballast. That’s one of the many reasons there a failures with aftermarket HID’s.
