  • Hey Shade Tree. The headlight flickering has stopped. Do you think perhaps the voltage regulator adjusted itself or was sticking from new and has now wore in??? Thanks again!
  • Jackso;
    My GM dealer told me that with the ALLwheel drive, the two differentials have to have some slack so as not to bind. The clunk is not brakes, but the xmission taking up slack in the shafts conncetion. 25K on it now and is ok pulling 7k pound trailer....coachman99
  • I had to go to the dealer and have him reset the computer on tire pressure, and this will happen also in cold climates if the tires get too low before you correct the pressure, keep them about 4 pounds higher and it won't happen again....coachman 06 denali xl
  • Here's my dilema...
    I have a 2000 Yukon XL and I'm having the following issues with the heater temperature in the driver/passenger section of the cabin, rear temperature control is working fine. The climate controller works fine(temp can be controlled from cool to hot and vise versa)but when the truck warms up(~10 mins on the road)the controller can control from cool to hot but it does not go from hot to cool, in other words, it gets stuck on hot and I mean it is hot. The only way I can get it to go to cool again is if the truck is off and remains off for ~15-20 mins. I know that the controller is working fine because I have replaced it and it did not fix the problem.
    Anny ideas???
  • We love our new(used) Denali. We had a Suburban xl but wanted the slightly larger engine and found a hood deal on the Denali so bought it. The only problem is the console is painted and it is peeling. I cant for the life of me figure out why GMC would paint the plastic instead of just using colored plastic. Is there any way to fix this? It looks so cheap to me.

    Anyone know the location of the fuel filter on a 2001 Yukon? The best description I've seen is in line with the driver side door on the frame but I can't find it. Also, bleed or no bleed? Anyone know? Thanks!

    dont know if this helps on the sierra it is on the inside of the driver side frame rail just in front of the fuel tank
  • HELLO ALL, I HAVE A 2002 DENALI AND HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH A BUZZING NOISE FROM ABOVE THE DRIVER'S SEAT FOR A LONG TIME NOW. 2 TIMES AT THE DEALER AND WAS FIRST TOLD THAT IT WAS THE LINK=UP SPEAKER FOR THE ONSTAR SYSTEM. THEN I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS THE "ASPIRATOR" THAT CONTROLS THE AC. JUST LEFT THE TRUCK AT CHEVY DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT IT IS THE AC TEMP. SENSOR. DIAG. WILL COST ME 97.00. ANY ADVICE AS TO WHAT IT IS. ALS HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCE A RUBBING NOISE WHEN TURNING TO THE LEFT--WAS TOLD MY CHEVY THAT IT IS THE STEERING SHAFT? ANY COMMENTS.

    I think your caps lock is on
  • Took mine to a dealer (not the one I bought it from) for an oil change and I pointed out the peeling to them and they were very nice. They replaced both pieces (the top around the cigarette lighter and the bottom where the drink holders are) at no cost. It was just days before the 3 year warranty expired and they were very accomodating.
  • I have the exact same problem with my 2000 XL. Did you ever find a solution? The heat is incredibly hot! Many thanks. randy
  • I have a 2004 Yukon SLT , the speedometer just stopped working about a month ago. The warranty just expired and now I am stuck with having to pay $485.00 to get it fixed. Has anyone had this problem?? :(
  • If your warranty just expired you can check with your dealer and possibly get it done on "goodwill". GM fixed my oxygen sensor that way when it was 400 miles past the warranty.
  • I just lost oil presure in mine and am not sure if it is a sensor or something major. The buzzer started going off and the presure guage dropped to zero. Started it back up and it went to 20 and then bounced back down to Zero. Anyone with this experience? I asked my dealer since I am right at 37000 miles it they would goodwill it but I have not heard back. ANyone know the corporate number to call to try and get items "goodwilled"? They asked me if I had purchased the extended waranty and I said no. I feel for $45,000 I should be able to get more that 36K miles with out major problems. I hate to say it, but with the experience I have had with my last 3 GM vehicles and getting issues fixed, I will not be buying another GM product. I see they have upped their waranty time period on the new vehicles which is a plus though.
  • I think GM has also upped the warranty for older vehicles to the 5yr/100,000 mile. Check for the years they are including and read the fine print. You may be in luck. GM is doing a lot to correct their quality image, however, the dealers need to improve also. I have a very low opinion of my local dealer but bought out of town and have had nothing but praise for them. Good luck. J

    44magnum and jjohnston,
    I could be wrong and I hope I am wrong as a 2007 GMC owner myself; but, I believe the 5yr/100K mile warranty applies to Powertrain and Corrosion Protection only, while the other components "bumper-to-bumper" are still covered under the 3yr/36K warranty... Best wish to you in getting the oil pressure problem fixed, for free.

    I had read that the retroactive warranty only applies to Certified used vehicles 03 and newer.
    Does anyone actually have a link to GM's actual info on this program. I would be very interested due to my transfer case issues. Thanks, Catam.
  • Original owner and have been experiencing loud rubbing/squeak noises on my 90K mile Denali when encountering bumps(speed bumps, dips in road, parking entry/exit inclines, ...). Sounds like coming from both front and rear. No luck with several visits to different dealers. Would like to get fixed before extended warranty expires. My wife or CEO of our family is killing me on this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • FYI, getting the same thing on a 2001 Yukon XL. I have 200,000 miles on it and I probably noticed it 50,000 ago. Drives me nuts, but obviously not enough to spend the money to get it fixed. My lights and everything else also dim noticably when I put down my windows, hit the brakes, turn up the heater..anything. Has always done it, but much more noiceably when the flickering problem started. It's almost like I'm flashing my lights at the car in front of me.

    Its hard to tell without being there, but, have you checked the shocks, control-arm bushings and also the sway bar bushings?
