I have a 2004 Yukon XL and I am having the pinging noise you mentioned after shutting off the truck. I am in the preliminary stage of being heard by GMC. I would like to keep in touch to be a unified force against this giant. After reading the post in the forum I think we might be in for a battle. I spoke with GMC (very nice, so far) and they connected me to my local dealership. From what I have heard GMC is so aware of this and are willing to do some things to "fix" the problem, but apparently there is no sure fix. I am so disappointed! I would think when you spend 10's- of- thousands of $ on a vehicle you shouldn't here embarrassing pinging sounds.

Suggestion: Don't use the word "pinging" when describing your problem to the dealer or technicians. The term "pinging" refers to something completely different than you are experiencing and may confuse the people you are talking to.

I don't know if you are referring to the sounds of the catalytic converter metal shifting and snapping as it cools off (and the size necessarily changes due to the laws of physics). That is something common to all the vehicles I have owned since at least 1973. You can hear it more clearly on trucks because they sit so much higher off the ground than most vehicles.
Heck this sort of popping sound as things cool off is something even my TV does and I can sometimes hear clearly at night from the one in my bedroom.
#193 of 1099 Service Ride Control

On my 2002 denali the service ride control light is on and when I turn the suv on there is a noise coming from the back near my tires. Is there something I can do to get rid of the noise and the service ride control light? And my abs light is on.

I have a 2001 denali and I have been getting the service ride light as well. It will come on and stay on for a day and then it won't come back on for a couple days. I am not sure if I have a sensor that is loose or what. Now it hasn't come on for about a week.

I just had the my 2005 DXL in the shop for that same problem. There is a bulletin on it and they installed a new heat shield, a clamp and 3 straps (reading off the work order. They dealer told me this will not make the noise go away for too. I'll let you know what happens. Also had two other issues: when turning steering wheel to the left you hear a constant squeaking sound, "adapter" has been ordered for that, another bulletin on this also. Windshield molding flaps when driving at highway speed, moldings ordered, there is a bulletin on this for 2000-2004 models but not 2005, dealer doing work under warranty.
#196 of 1099 Rough Idle - Rattling From Front
May 07, 2005 (9:49 am)
Hello...This is my first time using a message board, so let's hope I do this correctly. I just bought an '01 Yukon Denali with 62K one month ago...I am starting to get frustrated with the rough idle with and without A/C on and some rattling noises coming from the front of the truck when accelerating normally until around 35-40mph....It does not have a warranty....any suggestions?? I have read about some throttle body concerns others have had as well as some exhaust issues....Does anyone else have similar symptoms? Remedies? Thanks for your help!! vevette77yahoo.com

It could be loose heat shields in the muffler.

Have your spark plug wires checked or just have them changed. I had a problem in a 2004 tahoe with spark plug wires. Some of them were really loose on plugs and I could clearly see that it had been arcing between the wire terminal and the plug.
Just fixed this same issue again two days ago. Made a big improvement on idle. Also runs smoother during all driving.
#199 of 1099 converted air suspension
May 12, 2005 (12:38 pm)
I have a 2001 Yukon xl that I bought used. The previous owner replaced the air suspension components with standard shocks. The Service air suspension message is constantly on. Is there anyway to dissable this message? It's driving me nuts.
