    I want to disable my GPS in my 03 1500 Silverado.
    Is there a fuse or a simple way to make sure it's not sending or receiving data?

    can't imagine why you would want to.

    Here is a thread at Modern Camaro that may have what you are looking for.

    Because I don't subscribe to it and haven't since I bought the truck 9 years ago.
    Just don't like the non privacy thing. I feel big brother is watching over us more than they need to already.
    Don't worry, I'm not in the car jacking business...just don't like being monitored without my consent.
    I'm not paranoid either, so it's not like I feel I'm being watched. I just don't think anyone has the right if they ever decided to.
    Thanks for the link joe.

    Personally, you're being paranoid. Good luck with your mission

    Nothing paranoid about trying to mind your own bidness.

    Seriously though, that link you sent me Joe wasn't what I needed. Can anyone tell me where to find the module on a '03 1500 Silverado?
    Does anyone know? Or do you only know that I'm being paranoid?
    LOL some help please.

    Spells like a duck, sounds like a duck....it must be a duck!
    you quack!

    I don't see what the big deal is all about not wanting people that I don't know monitoring my whereabouts if I don't want them to.

    I am surprised that no one seems to know where the module is.

    Even after searching the web, I'm still coming up empty.

    Thanks anyway.

    Why do you care? If you haven't activated onstar then they can't track you simple as that you can't find the module because there probably
    Isn't one and it's just programmed into CPU

    Should be behind the gauge cluster between the dash shell and the steel structure of the dash.

    I actually agree with you, and I wouldn't buy a vehicle with OnStar for that reason.
