GMC Envoy Owners Meet the Members



  • My daughter has an '02 Envoy that has the MIL on. This code reflects low operating temperature. My scanner shows an operating temperature of between 174-178 degrees.
    My question is, is this considered low? If so, this would be a thermostat problem. If not, it could be a sensor problem.
    Has anyone else had this experience?

  • I bought this Envoy new in 2004 Here are the PROBLEMS I'VE HAD SO FAR:

    *Front differetial - replaced...Cost $3600.00 Dealer split difference w/ me since just out of warranty, and previous complaints from me about FWD performance.
    *Transmission - went out... Just happened @ 100k miles. Cost $3000.00
    *Rear tail-lights - continuously burning out
    *Cigarette lighters - continuously burning fuses
    *Radio lights - Half of radio lights are burnt out
    *A/C - Fan blower will not work on highest (5) setting.. Cost wanted $500.00
    *Windshield washer fluid motor - burnt out. Has been for a long time. Cost wanted $500.00
    *Rearview mirror - Broke... Cost wanted $500.00.. You've gotta be kidding!

    ***Many other problems, but I am tired of complaning and coming upon deaf ears. Thanks for listening. I will never buy a GM vehicle again!
  • Were you able to determine what was causing the noise?
  • I have the same car and same issues; transmission, differential, tail lights, interior lights, and now?

    The emblems on the side are wedging against the front quarter panels and are flipping off...

    I had everything fixed, by the way. The price tag now? Over 12,000.00 in repairs, not to mention the payment itself...

    Never again.

    We have a 2005 Envoy. Recently the four wheel drive service light, the ABS light and the brake light on the dashboard came on and stayed on. Also the heater/AC fan will not work. My mechanic changed the fan motor and the resister and the fan worked for about a minute and then quit. I have an appointment to take it to the dealer tomorrow but I am afraid of what the repairs will cost since I am on a fixed income. I am also not secure in the knowledge that the repairs will solve the problem since I have had repairs by my dealer in the past that were not satisfactory. I am beginning to think that the public is being ripped off by GM.

    I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your Envoy. Please keep me posted on any information from the dealership.

    Thank you,
    Caron, GM Customer Service

    It turned out that the ignition switch was bad. When it was replaced, the problems were no longer there. The problem was not the fault of GM.
  • I have a clicking noise seems to be coming from behind the dash glass. Also had a dead battery. Battery was replaced, but I still have the noise. Dealer service writer was stumped as to origin of noise. Can hear it really well with key in "on" position, engine not running. You too?

    I have a 2002 Envoy. I have the same clicking which varies in speeds. My family member is a mechanic, he advised it's relatively a simple fix. It's just getting to the problem that's the problem. It may be a fan that is related to the heating/cooling. This can be fixed/replaced. However, getting to this fan means the whole dash, or most of it needs to come off.

    My dashboard recently lit up like a Christmas tree, just as the yearly registration was due. It seems I've been lucky with my vehicle up to this point. The day of my registration the "service airbag" light came on. Quite frustrating since my vehicle appears to be deteriorating all at once.

    GM customer service only advised there are no 'open recalls' for the airbag problem that I'm having. He then asked me when, where and what time I plan on having the problem fixed since it was a safety concern. I'm not sure that I want to pay the price for the dealership to fix the problem. But I'm also concerned that GM will void the recall for my vehicle if I don't have the dealership fix it.

    Does anyone know about services done on a potential safety recall situation like this? :confuse:

    I'm sorry to see that your Envoy is having some difficulties, jkozel.

    I understand that you're looking for technical input (which unfortunately I'm unable to provide), but if you wanted for us to check into open recall/warranty information, or assist in working with a dealership to diagnose and correct the issue, please send the following information to your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 digits of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your involved dealership.

    All the best, and I hope you're able to get something figured out!

    We had the same problem with our 2002 Envoy. It was a $65 part that cost us $800+- to get repaired. The whole dash had to come out, and I mean the whole danged thing! Expensive, and a lot of opportunity to get a rattle when it's over. What can you do though? Expensive!
  • I just took ownership of an 07 Denali Envoy. A beautiful vehicle indeed. I notice on the left and right rear view mirrors there is a clear plastic lens on the bottom. Looks like a light of some kind. Anyone thro some light on this. Also how does one determine the axle ratio of same. Thanks in advance. Dave
