HA! At first the dealership said it was fuel injectors which had fouled up. THEN after making it 100 yards out of the dealership, it acted up again, so after another 24 hours, they advised it was the catalytic converter, which was causing the back pressure problem and apparently fouling up everything else. Hopefully they will test drive it this time, cuz I will have had this rental car for almost 10 days!
Thanks for the info.

I have recently had both my front heated seats stop working on me. Neither of the lights come on, I am thinking its a relay, but not sure which one? I was looking last night and there are multiple clusters, Can anyone help?
Also I have an obnoxious rattle/squeak in my passenger side dash? sounds like it is deep into the dash, any thoughts?
thanks for your help!~

I am not absolutely sure about your particular year model, however, the torsion bar adjustment is done by turning the torsion bar adjustment bolt (follow each torsion bar from the lower control arm toward the mid section of the vehicle, you should find the adjustment bolt at about the section below/behind the driver seat for the left side and opposite for right) . It will be much easier to turn each bolt if you jack up the front end (you can do this one side at a time) by the frame to take the weight off of the front suspension. Find a reference point on each side and take initial measurements before making the adjustment; measure each side of the SUV again after adjustment to make sure both sides were raised to the same height. You may need to have the alignment checked after adjusting the torsion bars...

Thanks for all the advice and it worked! It raised the front end about an inch which gave me more room for my 35 x 12.50 x 16.5" mud tires! I'm still hitting the windshield tank when I turn hard right though. I shaved as much as possible without any leakage. I might have to move it foward or up or re-position it elsewhere? Any thoughts on this anyone?
#3245 of 3279 re-mounting the auto ride sensors on 00 Yukon?
Feb 08, 2009 (2:42 pm)
Has anyone ever repositioned the sensors on the Yukon to make it higher? I would like to try this and is it safe? Please advise anyone.

I take it that you are talking about the Electronic Air-shock/Auto-leveling system? If yes, I have helped my friend with his Suburban where we only re-adjusted the linkage to each position sensor to raise the rear end higher by just about an inch. If I recall correctly, we only extended the link rod by about half a turn. You may want to double check on your particular model if the link rod needs to be extended or shortened to raise/lower the ride height... By the way, I recall seeing some sort of acceptable range limit/specification in doing this kind of adjustments, you probably can find such information in one of the GM Service Manuals.

thanks a lot for the infor. Have you tried adjusting the torsion bar? That brought it about an inch but it has some side affects, at 45 the stering wheel shakes (and its not the balance on the wheels) Which way to turn them? I see them and just wanted to know exactly which rod to turn, I turn it shorter or towards the body or clockwise? Please advise.

I only done that on a Land Cruiser in the past; the ride height change will impact the wheel alignment setting, but not on wheel balance. As far as the shakes you are experiencing, since after your height adjustment, have you had the wheels realigned?
