Problems since ive got my car...HELP!

So i have had my car since November of 2009 and i have always had problems with connecting my ipod... its like theres a glitch in the system... sometimes the songs wont load and is very slow, many times it starts to become very staticky and i have to replug it back in... and sometimes it will stop playing all together and say that it is not compatable... its an itouch so its not like its an old ipod... i have brought my car into the dealership at least 5 times and they replaced the connnecting cable from my center consol to the radio and i still have this problem... does anyone else?

Also i only have 22500 miles on my camaro and my brakes sqeek when i am applying light pressure on them... i have brought my brakes in and they replaced all the pads at 13000 miles for free and they started doing it again around 18000... i brought them in and they did not tell me i needed new pads or rotors and they told me they fixed it but they didnt

Is anyone else having these problems?!!!

No such problems with my 2010 SS, try having them update the software for the radio.

Not sure about ur iPod issue but I have the same issue on my girls car with the brakes. I happened to have it at my friends shop and he said its not the pads that need replacing but it the rotors. I believe he said they need to be resurfaced. I wanna say it would cost a little more than a $100 to fix. He gave me something to apply as a DIY which involves applying then sanding the rotors but i don't remember what it's called. I'm sure if you went into autozone they could tell you what it is if you want to DIY. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful

they replaced the PDIM in my car, bit mine wasn't recognizing the ipod at all. the connector is supposed to have a TSB as well, maybe that is your issue? they replaced that in mine first, but didn't help, so they replaced the PDIM and all is well.

How are you using your Ipod, with or without wire ? Your brakes could be because you are to light with the pedal, and you are glazing the pads.

the best part of this is its covered under WARRANTEE! There was a TSB (Technical Service Bullitin) issued (PI0055B) that will address this issue. I have attached the TSB and at the top is the GM P/N that needs to be installed.

The following information was sent to me via:

Scott Settlemire - GM Global Headquarters
Cheryl Pilcher – Camaro Product Manager
Jeff Morris – GM Customer Service.

In the TSB PI0055B, you will find this info:

In the top in the CONDITION/CONCERN section......the 5th bullet, it states "intermittent device operation from one ignition cycle to the next" . This covers it and will solve other issues with the operation of the unit.

NEXT you need to determine the Hardware/Software version you have in your system and how you and the dealer will proceed.

In the next section down, the RECOMMENDATION/INSTRUCTIONS section gives you the inscructions on how to determine the HW/SW version. If your HW version is either a Cx (where the X stands for any of the C versions) or a DA you need to have them REPLACE the entire PDIM unit....hopefully this is where you are at. PRINT OUT THE TSB and take it with you when you go to your dealer.

PI0055B with GM PN#.pdf

There is a thread here that was started in 2009 and is still going....whe I had this same issue, I found the thread and it was 30 pages long, its up to 39 pages now, and still active....I read every page, and did my homework.....even the GM Service Rep was helping and was posting so that all the correct info was put out. I went to my dealer with this TSB, they ordered the part listed on the top of the TSB and my system has performed FLAWLESSLY ever since.

Here is a link to the thread: PDIM Softwear UPDATE

also attached is what your HW/SW window will look like when the proper PDIM is installed.

I am sorry to hear of the dissatisfaction you are experiencing with your Camaro. If you could please send me your first and last name, address, phone number, VIN, mileage, and involved dealership, I will be more than happy to research this for you. I look forward to working with you.
