Chevy Radio Does not like ScanGauge

Had to make a sudden trip to FL last month without the RV, so I moved the SG into my '00 Chevy Silverado six cylinder. Radio started resetting its self just before I left and the full 6K miles I drove. Thought I had a loose ground or something on the radio.

After getting home, I was searching for known problems with the SG, not thinking about the radio, and lo and behold, up popped a problem with Chevy radios randomly resetting when the SG was installed!!! Have not removed it, or driven the truck since getting home, but will unplug it next time to see what happens.

I have used my scangauge in my Chevy Blazer many times and never had any problem with the radio. Are you sure it's the SG giving you the problem ? If so, that is a weird one since the OBD II plug you're reading from is monitoring engine operating data and should have nothing to do with the radio. Keep us posted on what you find ---

Have not gotten around to disconnecting the SG for a test drive. Further searching seem to indicate problems may be just with the Silverado early '00 models.

Will post when I take the truck for a drive. I did a search on "Scangauge radio reset"

I must not be a major problem, not many people posting about!

I drove my Silverado for an hour or so today, about 60 miles with the ScanGauge disconnected. The radio did not reset. Before, connected, 10-15 minutes was the longest it would go, and as ofter as every few seconds. I would say 3 minutes might be average! Not a big deal, I bought it for the RV anyway, just put it in the truck to help with boredom for the 6,000 mile trip. Just wanted to give a heads up in case any one else had the problem and thought about taking the radio out looking for a bad connection, which is what I was about to do!
