    Mine was an o3 denali and the dealership told me there was nothing wrong with it. i took it to my small town mechanic and he had to adjust the wheel speed sensors.. they were not all at the same adjustment so traction control was constatly kicking in....once he fixed it it worked great (other than other stupid issues which is shy i got rid of it)

    Went to a (FORD) dealership and they said that we need to replaced the sensor for Stability Services $750 and the problem came back. Then paid $160 to replace another for the GMC dealership, because GMC has the right computer to re-set the chip. NOW the problem is still there. :shades: Please advise on this matter.

    This is in response to my concern posted at edmonds.com, I have a 2006 Yukon Denali with little over 66k miles ...The past few months there has been an error reading on my display saying traction not active. The car loses power when I try and accelerate.. this is an intermittent problem. This is very frustrating as it is a HUGE SAFETY CONCERN, if I am driving with my 2 kids (2 and4) and need to accelerate and lose power...anyways I have taken it to my Dealership at Waldecker Buick in Brighton, MI as I bought this car from Bob saks (no longer in business) They cannot seem to duplicate the problem I am having and are unable to assist me..this is very unacceptable customer service as I continue to read the letters from other owners having the exact same problem... I did ALL the research myself on this and brought it to the svc mgr at Waldecker and he told me he tried everything he could to duplicate the problem, but it is GM's policy that they cannot fix something that isn't registering. Understandable however more research should have been done... I found doc ID: 2075809 ref 1819672 that states the exact same thing my car is doing, but because this recall does not apply to my year, they cannot fix it? If I am driving and all the sudden lose power when I try and hit the gas, this is a huge problem, not to mention MY GMPP plan that I have some how isn't in the system ...when my husband and I bought this vehicle, we were had been completely over promised and under delivered upon promises and because of HUGE MULTIPLE ISSUES with this purchase (tires , nav disc etc) the mgr at Bob Saks gave us the GMPP major guard and we have all the paperwork, but yet no one can seem to find it in the system...but again my rant is not of that as of now, my kids safety and driving this vehicle is...luckily when we trailered our boat down south this past week we didn't have any problems, but does GM just expect me to wait and see?? seems awfully dangerous??? My husband and I would like to remain loyal gm customers, we just bought a 2011 Buick lacrosse cxl, and would like to keep that vehicle as well, but if this is the type of service we can expect this doesn't look to promising... I did make a call to the gm customer service number and the case number is 71-961614620...the VIN # Is 1gkek63u36j126135

    I would recommend contacting the local GM service Representative that calls on the local dealerships. The wheel sensors are corroded and need cleaned or replaced. It happens in areas that salt roads - Good Luck

    I have a 2005 Yukon Denali and I am having the same problems that you are loses power when you try accelerate and on my display saying traction active and I also here a little noise under the car could you please tell me what you found out on your car it sure would help me out thank you so much. :(
  • godmudder1godmudder1 Posts: 12
    Nothing yet unfortunately, because it is an intermittent problem so far gm isn't able to duplicate it so they have done nothing ... Everything I have heard is that it is the wheel speed sensors that need cleaning but I don't know yet for sure, as soon as I get a resolution, I will post it!!!
  • gmcustsvcgmcustsvc Posts: 4,139
    cindys3,

    Were you planning on having the vehicle diagnosed by a GM dealership? Please keep me posted when the issue has been taken care of.

    Thank you,
    Caron, GM Customer Service
  • godmudder1godmudder1 Posts: 12
    As I stated in previous posts, I have and because they could not duplicate the problem, they are unable to help...Because it is such a huge safety concern, I will have my attorney's look into any possible solutions I may have overlooked..Its very EVIDENT in all of these posts regarding this issue that this is not an isolated problem with this vehicle...and they are unwilling to rectify this matter thus far
    Thanks

    Don't worry, the the problem won't be intermittant for long. My 05 Yukon started the problem intermittantly at about thirty thousand miles. It now has 107,000 and for many tens of thousands of miles it has done it ALL the time. It would be completely undriveable - but for the traction active disable button on the dash. If you push that button the vehicle will act normally. It is a pain in the rear to have to push it every time you turn the car on, and when the button is worn out I don't know what I'll have to do. It is a safety problem and it's absolutely ridiculous that GM doesn't have mechanics that know how to fix the problem and they aren't more open with info ( i.e. bulletins ) with their customers. They also ought to fix my heated seats that turned on intermittantly - untill one day when they stayed on whenever the car was driving. You can disconnect a wire under the driver seat to disable that system. You don't have to search the internet to see these are common problems - my vehicle stickered for 52,000 dollars in 2005. You'd think for that kind of money you could get a vehicle that isn't a headache every time you get in for a drive. I'll never buy another GM vehicle. Mechanical problems were bad enough but when they took government money to subsidize their incompetence - it sealed the deal for me.

    tucrow,

    I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle. Is the dealership having trouble diagnosing the vehicle? Has the dealer involved our Technical Assistance?

    Thank you,

    godmudder1,
    I looked into your case with GM Customer Assistance. It appears they tried to contact you a few times. If you are still experiencing concerns I would definitely recommend calling your agent back. Please feel free to email me with any questions comments or concerns.

    I also got this message on my yukon. It seems to be a major safety issue since I lost all power while driving. Is this on the recall list? If not it should be.
  • gmcustsvcgmcustsvc Posts: 4,139
    shawnas,
    I apologize for your frustrations. If you would like I would be more than happy to look into recall information for your vehicle. I would just need your VIN and current mileage. I look forward to your response. Please feel free to email me directly.

  • and it is getting worse by the day. The first few times it happened, I didn't see the display, but now it seems to happen every time I go from cruising speed to a stop sign, and then try to re-accelerate. I have two small children that are often in the Yukon and I'm getting very concerned and hesitant to drive it.

    Can GM Customer service please contact me?
  • gmcustsvcgmcustsvc Posts: 4,139

    hello Christina
    yes I recently went in to the GM dealership here in Monroe NC
    and was told it's my throttle body sensor which is located inside the throttle
    body, which means i must replace my whole throttle body.
    So I done that and my SUV still reads reduce engine power and performs worse. Here's my VIN#1GKEK63U23J155783
    hopefully you can tell me something helpful plz.....

    My wife informed me that our 2006 Suburban with under 56,000 miles is now doing what is described in these posts. The traction control comes on when not necessary, and the vehicle thinks it needs to cut power, thereby making acceleration much slower and unfortunately dangerous as has been mentioned.

    If anyone has gotten to the bottom of this, please post up the information or a link. I would like to investigate further and see if it is something easy I can do at home. The GM dealership is just a giant vacuum attached directly to my wallet so I would like to avoid them at all costs. I've been very disappointed with past dealer experiences regarding my "bumper to bumper" GM warranty on my 2002 Bravada. I would never buy another extended warranty from them again.

    Having a chance to read the first page of this thread, I see that the wheel sensors seem to be the likely culprit. I will start there! ;)
