    nope, dimmer is down. I have a Suburban with the same light switches, etc, so I'm familiar with the proper position of each switch, and everything is in its proper position.

    I recently had the backup camera installed in my '04 Denali XL. Works great but the guy who installed it scratched the screen. He tried to use some plastic buffing cream on it but the scratch was too deep. Any ideas on how to fix? Is the screen replaceable? What to do?

    No amount of buffing cream in the world is gonna fix that scratch if it's as deep as you say it is, but in any case--why would YOU be concerned as to how/if it can be fixed? I mean, the installer damaged it--if you can't live with that scratch, why not make him pay for a new one?

    Lights are on when one of the doors is open, i.e. when the light control switch in just one door is closed. The switch for each door open as a door is closed and closes as door is opened (could work opposite too). Closed switch connects wires and lights come on.

    You probably have a bad switch in one of the doors. The switch doesn't open when door is closed and leaves your interior lights on. Check all switches, that's where the problem most likely is.

    I have been trying to find out how hard it would be to put a Double DIN nav system into a 05 Yukon, I don't really like the slide out ones and the Pioneer is about $400 less for the Double Din vs the single din one. So if I spend $400 on parts, it will cost the same but I will like the looks much better. Does anyone know where I can get dash parts to allow me to do this?

    Anyone know if the either unit sits taller than the other?

    I didn't check all the various models, but apparently the Yukon is a little bit taller than the XL (Height: 76.5 in vs 75.7 in. for the XL).

    Maybe this Comparator link will work.

    I just bought an '04 4WD Yukon and I'm trying to make sense of teh AWD Stabilitrak System and the transfer case buttons. The owner's manual confuses me more than it helps me. Am I correct in assuming that I will basically be driving in AWD mode or 4Lo mode at all times with one of those two buttons lighted and I then can turn the Stabilitrak System on or off as I see fit? What's the neutral setting for and how do I get into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I'd suggest posting this on the '4WD & AWD systems explained' board. There are a couple of guys over there who are very knowledgeable.

    Obyone - I'm looking at purchasing trim kits for a couple of our vehicles. I've been going through several websites. I noticed you used exoticwooddash. I liked their use of the 3M adhesive, but was curious as to how the overall application was and if it really looked close to an original install when you were done?

  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    After I read your question, I took a walk outside to take another closer look at the trim. If anything the kit looks a little darker than the stock. Then again, the stock trim was exposed to UV for a bit longer than the kit. It isn't really noticeable. The color and grain are spot on.

    I had purchased the entire kit. I believe you can order variations if you chose to do so. Unfortunately you have to order the complete kit to get the parts that cover the peeling areas. I didn't install the big piece that covers the center console cover as I thought it would have an overkill effect. One thing to remember when installing is that the cleaner the surface the better. You get a small cotton gauze to clean the areas you plan to install. I had used a half dozen cotton balls and some isopropyl alcohol to further clean the surfaces as that small piece of cotton gauze that comes with the kits wears our rather quickly.

    The kit looks great and has the appearance of a factory install. As I stated earlier, I wouldn't install every trim piece as it would be overkill. If you decide to get the kit just map the pieces out and decide which you would want to install to enhance the appearance.

    Hope this helps.

    I have 2002 Yukon Denali and my rear radio control panel is not working. Does anybody have any ideas? I cannot seem to find a specific fuse for the panel so I am wondering if it is the panel itself. Thanks.

    Thanks - I really appreciate your first hand experience and insight.

    What do you mean by "had large wheels/tires placed"? Did you buy them after you bought your Yukon or are they factory 20" wheels? Assuming that the stock tire size for an '05 Yukon is 265-70-16, then yes the 305-50-20 tire/wheel is larger overall (circumference-wise) and probably heavier (unless those 20" wheels are forged--as opposed to cast--ones) than the stockers. And unless the PCM has been updated to account for the overall wheel/tire size change, your speedometer will be off. Going to 20" shouldn't cause any really serious issues; braking distance will probably increase a tad but not a big deal as long as you drive a wee bit more conservatively in order to compensate. Many folks have switched to bigger wheels/tires--I'm running 22" wheels myself--w/o any serious negative problems...although in all fairness I did upgrade my brakes all around to Baer Alumasports, just in case.

    Has anyone had any issues with the turn signal flasher clicking constantly? I have replaced the flasher, and checked all fuses with no results. I am leaning towards the switch in the column or possible a harness, but would like to know if anybody has had this problem and what they may have done to fix it
  • thanks tdoh, I do mean I purchased after I orig. bought the truck. How do I update my PCM is this something I can do or do I need to go to the dealer? I also am lookig to upgrade brakes in future.

    thanks again. :shades:

    2004 Yukon 2WD with ~25000miles.

    The message "Stablity System Disabled" or "Service Stability" began a few weeks ago along with activation of the "system" while on a dry road, gentle curve, 35-45mph.

    Dealer changed a yaw sensor, reprogrammed and also changed the intermediate shaft (noise).
    The "Service Stability" msg returned within 20miles.
    Another yaw sensor was installed...same issue!

    Now the dealer and GM customer service have told me there is no more to be done!!!

    NOT an acceptabe solution.

    Any advice...
    Wanna buy a car???
