It is a design flaw with the truck. It has been reported that theports inside the console need to be replaced and then it solves the problem.

Here is a board that backs what I thought of this issue:

ztrech - nice low tech, cheap option if it works. It worked on that VW, maybe it will work on this GMC. If not, I would do what GM recommends.
